With Virtual CD FS you can insert a virtual CD in a virtual drive, and then make it available to all your users by sharing the drive in the network. All you have to do is install Virtual CD FS on a file server – no additional hardware or extraneous components are required! That is why we say: Virtual CD FS is the CD-ROM server solution for your network.
And this is not just an empty claim—Virtual CD FS provides a range of features that make it a truly unique CD-ROM server solution.
For example, Virtual CD FS:
|►||–requires no client installation for distributing access to virtual CDs.|
|►||–enables the use of up to 5865 virtual CDs simultaneously (using virtual CD "collections")|
|►||–supports applications that can access CD data displayed in directory trees.|
|►||–is seamlessly integrated as a system component on your file server.|
|►||–lets you control access by granting or denying permissions to virtual CD shares.|
|►||–gives you a clear view of all the CDs in a collection thanks to the new Collection Viewer.|
|►||–can be operated when no users are logged on.|
|►||–comes with a second user license so you can create and test virtual CDs on a workstation of your choice.|
|►||–employs familiar network mechanisms so you can start using it right away, without a time-consuming learning phase.|
|►||–supports 64-bit operating systems in the Windows series.|
|►||–stores collections in UDF format. This removes a great many limitations imposed by the Joliet format (for example, restrictions on file name length).|
|►||–supports virtual burners. You can use this feature to provide network shares that users can write in.|
Virtual CD FS uses network shares to provide access to data stored on virtual CDs. This means CD-ROM-specific properties (such as playing audio CDs, certain copy-protection issues, etc.) that work only in conjunction with a CD drive cannot be utilized.
