You can also use PC-NetLink softwate provided by Sun.
It allows Sun Server to emulate a Windows-NT server where you can share Sun directories with Windows-NT server as well as Windows clients to store DOS / Windows32 executables.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It is free when you buy a Sun Server at least when our company bought it.
