Peer Software: According to Peer Software, “Microsoft Distributed File System (DFS) enables IT managers and end-users in medium and large enterprises to access and manage files that are distributed across the network. DFS replication services allow files to be shared without emailing from person to person. There is no need to search for the latest version, the last recipient, or worry about the network’s capacity to move a large file. However, Microsoft DFS does present some limitations, most notably the inability to lock files.”
This eGuide provides an overview of reasons to use DFS, as well as problems and limitations of the software and tools that can help companies overcome those difficulties.
