Franz Announces Allegro NFS Server 7.0 for Windows

Customers Gain 64-bit Performance, Simple Installation,Flexible Configuration and Enterprise Reliability

Lafayette, California, February 16, 2021 — Franz Inc., an early innovator in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and leading supplier of Graph Database technology for Knowledge Graph Solutions, today announced Allegro NFS Server 7.0 for Windowsâ with 64-bit performance and support for all current versions of the Windows operating system. Allegro NFS Server 7.0 delivers a high performance, easy-to-install and reliable solution for small and large enterprise-wide deployments.

“Allegro NFS was inspired by customer demand for an NFS server for Windows that was simple to install and run – without getting bogged down with complex configuration issues,” said Jans Aasman, CEO of Franz Inc. “Over the years, we have continued to deliver on simplicity and efficiency for NFS for Windows. This new 64-bit version offers companies faster performance with the streamlined set-up, flexibility and high reliability that enterprise companies have come to expect from Allegro NFS.”

Network File System (NFS) is a distributed file system protocol developed to allow a user on a client computer to access files over a computer network much like local storage is accessed. Allegro NFS was originally developed for Franz’s internal purposes due to our dissatisfaction with free and commercial NFS Servers available on the market and the incredible technical difficulties faced in configuring them on Windows. Since 2002, Allegro NFS has become a standard for many Fortune 500 companies who want reliable and easy-to-configure access to Windows from NFS clients.

Allegro NFS Server 7.0, runs on all the current versions of the Windows operating system including Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008, Server 2012, Windows 7 (32 and 64-bit), Windows 8 (32 and 64-bit), and Windows 10 (32 and 64-bit). Allegro NFS also has version that to run on Windows XP.
