Short for Network Data Management Protocol, a protocol pioneered by Intelliguard and Network Appliance that defines a common architecture for the way heterogeneous file servers on a network are backed up.
The protocol will allow the creation of a common agent used by the central back-up application to back up different file servers running different platforms and platform versions.
With NDMP, network congestion is minimized because the data path and control path are separated. Back up can occur locally–from file servers direct to tape drives, while management can occur from a central location.
NDMP is an open standard protocol promoted and supported by server vendors, back-up software vendors, and back-up device vendors.
Short for Non-Delivery Receipt, NDR is an e-mail related acronym. When an e-mail message is composed and sent to an invalid e-mail address the receiving, or in some cases the sending, e-mail server attempts to send an NDR to the sender of the e-mail message, to inform them that the e-mail address used is invalid.
Short for Novell Directory Services, the directory services for Novell Netware networks. NDS complies with the X.500 standard and provides a logical tree-structure view of all resources on the network so that users can access them without knowing where they’re physically located. NDS also inter-operates with other types of networks.
One of the world’s largest computer and electronics manufacturers. NEC Technologies is the second largest producers of semiconductors (Intel is first) and its line of monitors has set the standard for many years. It also produces PCs and notebook computers, and controls half the PC market in Japan.
Short for Nano Emissive Display, NED is the technology that enables manufacturers to design large flat panel displays that exceed the image quality characteristics of plasma and LCD screens at a lower cost. * Instead of using either one cathode ray tube (CRT) or millions of tiny LED lights to project a video image, NED […]
