The End of Services for Mac®: Evaluating Your Replacement Options

Services for Macintosh® (SFM), a file server developed by Microsoft® in the 1990s that allowed Mac users to operate within a Windows network, will no longer be supported by the company after going unmaintained for many years. Although many organizations running older versions of Windows Server may continue to use SFM, the time has come to evaluate replacement options.

This white paper discusses options for businesses replacing SFM and provides a list of important questions to consider, including:

  • Would it be better to implement a server-side solution, or manage software on the individual Macs?
  • How will the solution I choose affect performance, migration of existing data, help desk call volumes and/or user satisfaction?
  • And more

Read now to learn which SFM replacement option will be the best fit for your organization’s needs.
