Intelligent flash storage arrays

Intel and set-top box company Neon Technology have announced a Pentium MMX-based version with built-in ADSL and Ethernet support. Neon, a 1995 Internet appliance start-up, produces a range of products based on Intel, Cyrix, SGS-Thomson and AMD x86-compatible silicon and using 32-bit posix-compliant RTOS (ie. non-Microsoft) operating software. The new box uses an MMX chipset from Intel’s Embedded Microcomputer Division (which we think is a new subdivision) for CPU intensive tasks, including running full-duplex voice over IP and RealNetworks’ RealPlayer 5. The addition of ADSL and Ethernet places it at the top of Neon’s range of devices. Neon’s set-top products are essentially designed to offer standard Internet facilities in a set-top box package, and include an HTML 3.2 browser with Javascript and SSL 3.0 for secure e-commerce. The Intel deal seems to be a further sign –- if one were needed –- that Intel hardware no longer necessarily needs Microsoft software. ®
