At the Worldwide Developer Conference currently underway in San Fransisco, Apple unveiled some of the new features coming in Mac OS X Server 10.6, Snow Leopard. Of course the new release gets the same improvements as the client version, but in addition to those, there are a few server-specific features underway too.First of all, ZFS read and write support will be included in Snow Leopard Server. ZFS is a “128-bit ZFS file system, which includes advanced features such as storage pooling, data redundancy, automatic error correction, dynamic volume expansion, and snapshots”.
In addition, Snow Leopard will get new versions of iCal Server, Podcast Server, Mail Server, and Address Book Server. Snow Leopard will also include better and expanded collaboration tools and more elaborate remote access options, including a push notifications server that works outside of your firewall.
