The Enterprise Windows Client 5.1 (EWC 5.1) allows the integration of Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista hosts into the Backup3G and/or Task3G environments. Management and delegation is centralized on a UNIX or Linux host. The backup and job scheduling environment can contain any number of UNIX, Linux and Windows. These hosts and their resources (tape drives, filesystems, etc.) are then accessible by any other host in the environment.
