Networking software vendor Novell has launched a version of its NDS eDirectory for Microsoft's newly released Windows 2000 operating system, the company announced on Wedneday.
Novell will offer a free 100-user eDirectory license to users purchasing Windows 2000 before May 18, the company said in a statement. NDS eDirectory is Novell's cross-platform directory service designed to manage electronic business relationships between companies and their customers.
The software is targeted at Internet companies. It is used to link all existing directories and underlying platforms in a network, making them manageable from a single location, according to Novell.
NDS eDirectory is also available for other operating systems, including Microsoft's Windows NT, Novell's NetWare and Sun Microsystems' Solaris. Novell is expecting to announce support for Linux and Compaq Computer's Tru64 version of Unix later this year, the company said in the statement.
NDS eDirectory licenses for Windows 2000 are available from resellers or from Novell directly for $US2 per user.
