TOPS (file Server)

TOPS (Transcendental OPerating System) is a peer-to-peer LAN-based file sharing system best known in its Macintosh implementation, but also available for Windows and able to interoperate with Unix's NFS. Originally written by Centram Systems West, the company was purchased by Sun Microsystems as part of Sun's development of the NFS ecosystem. Sales of TOPS dried up after the introduction of System 7, which featured a similar file sharing system built-in, and Sun spun off their NFS developments to Sitka.

Famous quotes containing the word tops:

    And each of the huge white creatures was huger than fourscore men;
    The tops of their ears were feathered, their hands were the claws of birds,
    And, shaking the plumes of the grasses and the leaves of the mural glen,
    The breathing came from those bodies, long warless, grown whiter than curds.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
