File and Print Services
In a file and print sharing environment, users can access a program or printer as though it were on their local machines, when actually the program or printer resides on the network. This is a great benefit to small workstations, where disk space is at a premium. A user can have access to a much larger program repertoire than could fit on a private disk.
By having a resource reside physically on a the network servers, then distributed throughout the network, you can greatly simplify administration. First, you reduce the number of various programs and printers that need to be maintained on the network. Second, you reduce the problems involved in performing backups and maintenance for a number of machines dispersed over a wide geographical area.
Centralizing files on a few file servers not only simplifies administration, it helps maintain consistency of shared data files. When changes are made to a shared file, they become available to all users immediately.
ClearLeaf will help you organize, secure and distribute shared files and printers on your network to maxmize office productivity and reduce costs!
