"And the promotion we're offering will make getting started with NDS for NT even easier."

"The single network directory that NDS for NT provides not only gives the Centers for Disease Control users a single login, it also simplifies our network administration model," said Lisa Haygood, Network Specialist at the Centers for Disease Control. "With NDS for NT, we've cut our administration overhead considerably."

Novell's NDS for NT reduces the costs and complexity of deploying and managing NT servers and applications by providing a single point of administration for mixed NetWare and NT environments and a single log-in interface for users.

It provides seamless integration with Windows NT Server and will be updated to manage Windows NT 5.0 and Active Directory users, groups and applications when available.

"Novell's NDS for NT delivers such an elegant and cost-effective way to simplify the management of NTdomains and trust relationships that our customers are anxious to get their hands on it," said Len Smith, chief technology officer, Inacom.
