Collaboration improves the SMB protocol

How ownCloud and SerNet worked together to improve the SMB protocol, is described in a new blog post from ownCloud. Read about it in the article "Windows Network Drive integration benefits from Samba contributions".

The text emphasizes, how Open Source Collaboration can prove to be an important and stimulatory factor for projects. In this case, ownCloud engineers worked together with longtime Samba expert Volker Lendecke at SerNet. This resulted in notifications for smb-client implemented in the SMB2 and SMB3 protocol, subsequently boosting performance and bringing more reliability to the windows network drive integration. So – to quote ownCloud: "the professionals at SerNet have your back".
