PowerQuest ServerMagic 3.0 Simplifies Migration to NetWare 5.1

Start-to-finish server storage management product delivers safe, easy upgrade to Web access benefits of NetWare 5.1

OREM, Utah, January 10, 2000- Companies that need the networking Web applications available in Novell's NetWare® 5.1, released today, will find a simple upgrade path through PowerQuest® Corp's ServerMagic 3.0. ServerMagic provides a complete storage management tool, allowing network administrators to dynamically manipulate NetWare server partitions and volume segments on the fly, simplifying both network upgrades and day-to-day server management.

"ServerMagic is a logical choice when upgrading to NetWare 5.1. It gives IS professionals complete control over their server storage and deployment, making upgrades and other system changes faster, safer and easier than ever before," said Craig Bushman, senior director of global marketing at PowerQuest. "ServerMagic provides a better way to get to the benefits of NetWare 5.1 than using a traditional backup and restore process, saving hours of time and leaving server administrators with a powerful tool to adapt and make future changes to the NetWare server quickly and safely."

ServerMagic 3.0 includes PowerQuest's Server Image technology for NetWare, which allows IS professionals to create a compressed image of the entire server for fast, effective, and complete NetWare server deployment. Server Image uses PowerQuest's patent pending SmartSector® technology to dramatically speed up the deployment process by addressing only sectors containing data. In addition to fast server deployment, the image file can be used to return your server to working order in a matter of minutes.

ServerMagic 3.0 is a NetWare Loadable Module (NLM) that enables you to resize, copy, move, delete, create, and mirror server partitions, volumes and volume segments with minimal frustration and down time. Network administrators can resize, copy or move an existing NetWare partition or volume without losing trustee rights or NDS settings. If the DOS partition is too small to upgrade to NetWare 5.1, ServerMagic makes it simple to downsize the NetWare partition and upsize the DOS partition on the fly. In addition to NetWare partitions, ServerMagic 3.0 allows users to modify Compaq, FAT, FAT32, NTFS, HPFS-386 and Linux Ext2 partitions.

ServerMagic 3.0 is available worldwide in English through corporate resellers and directly from PowerQuest. Pricing and licensing are available in several configurations to match the needs of enterprise organizations. For additional sales or product information, visit PowerQuest's Web site at
