Minimum OS for iFolder3

I have a client that needs iFolder for about 15 users

Whats the minimum OS I can get aways with

The Storage requirement is about 10Gb per user
mostly CAD, PDF & Graphics...
Some TIFF files can be 100Mb

Budget is limited I don't think full OES Linux is affordable
at this stage.

Re: Minimum OS for iFolder3

bas,

Currently, only OES is supported for iFolder 3.x servers. It's probable
that this will change in the near future though, so if OES is not an
option, maybe you can wait a month or so?

Re: Minimum OS for iFolder3

Well, it's no secret that the iFolder team has been attempting to
opensource the server component since prior to the initial release date.
I am simply optimistic that this will actually occur sooner rather than
later. Its possible of course that I could be completely wrong. If it is
opensourced, then since it is based in mono, it should be trivial to get
the server working on whatever platform that mono/.net supports.

This would also enable those like bas who are looking for an ultra cheap
way to deploy iFolder do so.

Anyway, this is my hope.

Victor

Re: Minimum OS for iFolder3

Thanks for the info. Now if Novell would only port Mono to Netware!
