Hamachi to Run $59-a-Head

Hamachi to Run $59-a-Head

Novell has put a $59-a-user price tag on Hamachi, the integrated package of file, print, messaging, directory and management services that it salvaged from NetWare and put on Linux under the name Nterprise Linux Service 1.0.

Novell customers with upgrade protection or maintenance agreements will get the stuff for nothing.

It includes Virtual Office, eDirectory, the iFolder personal file management scheme, iPrint, NetMail, the Web-based iManager for managing platforms and Novell Resource Management, which uses the Red Carpet patch system from Novell's purchase of Ximian.

Novell says it's also delivering a set of migration methodologies to help get customers off NetWare, Windows and Unix.

Novell has previously said it doesn't expect to see much business out of the 1.0 version and any uptick in revenues awaits the second rev next summer
