Snap Appliance, the worldwide volume leader in network-attached storage (NAS) solutions, continues to lead the field in platform interoperability and investment protection with the introduction of SnapOS Version 4.0, the latest version of its award-winning NAS operating system. SnapOS Version 4.0 is compatible with Windows Server 2003, providing customers with secure participation of Snap Server NAS systems with Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Service environments. SnapOS Version 4.0 will be available from the Snap Appliance web site and is backwards compatible with all SnapOS-based Snap Server products.

"The release of SnapOS Version 4.0 with Windows Server 2003 interoperability is significant, allowing our customers to protect their investment in existing hardware resources," said Drew Meyer, Product Manager for the SnapOS product line at Snap Appliance.
