Netware Trademark A network-based system from Novell Corp. for use on assemblies of IBM PCs. (The name Novell is sometimes applied to the Netware product.) The Netware system functions essentially by allowing some of the disk drives within a PC to be replaced by a network connection to a file server, and by similarly allowing some of the standard peripheral devices such as printers to be replaced by a network connection to a print server. Although this may lead to some lowering of overall performance, there are corresponding gains in operational flexibility. The system allows a user to move freely between PCs in different locations on the network, while still retaining access to his or her files, and also releases the individual user from the need to take protective dumps, which can be centrally managed.
