Subject: BSD-based NAS Server navigates Active Directory
Date: Tue, 27 Nov 2001 21:28:00 -0500

This week, the business-critical technology of network attached storage 
(NAS) takes center-stage. Open Bench Labs examines what can happen when 
Procom Technology harnesses the power of BSD to a NAS server, with 
results that prompt OpenBench Labs to depict the scene as a perfect Windows 
2000 Active Directory NASquerade. Tough act to follow, but IBMís 
Jonathan Adams, consultant and leader of the Patterns for e-business 
initiative, doesnít do badly. He shares his views on the significance of the 
book heís co-authored, and how the Patterns methodology can change the 
speed and level in which consultants and business executives gain common 
ground on e-business architecture. Over in Ottawa, we record the views 
of an IBM panelist who is about to take part in an important dialogue 
concerning the business of Open Source.
