Another complete computer system from Intel arrives tomorrow
Chipzilla doesn't make complete systems, remember?
Intel will announce tomorrow the latest in the InBusiness range of server appliances to include a mass storage box aimed at small business users. The StorageStation -- a snip at $999 -- sits on a LAN and contains 12GB of storage with a Pentium 266 processor (remember them?) to drive it. A 24GB variant will be available in two month's time at an expected price of $1399. Using the same web-based controls as the existing Internet and Email Stations, the new box runs on 10 or 100Mb LANs and features directory level security and automated backup alongside private folders for individual user's files while reducing server load and resources by separating file services from the application server, all in a dinky little unit a tad larger than a VHS video cassette. Cynics will be pleased to note that this is the first InBusiness product to use an Intel, rather than NatSemi, processor. ®
