VIA shows its new ARTiGO A2000 storage server

Barebones storage server with 1.5GHz VIA C7-D

| Computer Systems News | Posted: Dec 9, 2008 12:50 pm

VIA Technology has today taken the covers off the ARTiGO A2000 storage server. It is designed to be a small, affordable yet capable basic storage server.


It is based on a system using a 1.5GHz VIA C7-D processor and VIA VX800 Unified Digital Media IGP chipset. It supports two SATA-II hard drives up to 1.5TB each. The operating systems supported are Windows XP, Vista, Ubuntu 8.04 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 with Service Pack 2. However, those were all that were tested, others may also work.


What is interesting with this system is that the OS is installed on a CompactFlash (CF) card which supports DMA mode.


You can view the product page here for the complete run-down on the product.


VIA is also holding a name contest for the A2000 - the winning name will be given one of these systems. Go here to suggest a name and possibly win one.
