The server, called the Rackmount 2U, has support for two Socket 370 processors, SCSI, dual Lan, RAID and can also take up to four hard drives.

The SCSI/RAID controller board in the server allows for hot swap, hot rebuild and RAID 1 mirroring.

The server is bundled with TurboLinux server, while TurboCluster is an option. The other software included in the package is Webmin, Eazy Start Up, and recovery CDs for both ServeLinux and TurboLinux.

The firm said the rack mounted unit will be available at the end of August, and the $999 deal will include a Via Cyrix II 533MHz chip, 64MB of PC-133 memory and a 10GB hard drive. The company's Web site is here. ®
