Tweakers Australia has just posted a review on the FireNAS portable 480GB server. This baby has to be seen to be believed, and retailing for $4499 USD, it's not exactly on the cheap side either.
A good mate of mine was more interested in it after I showed him the specifications, as he is someone in the networking industry, and really appreciates hardware like the FireNAS. We don't look at it as a small box with almost ½ a Terabyte of hard drive space, but more of a giant leap in networking storage. You look past the 480GB of free space in My Computer and the small box and realize what you have is a remarkable piece of hardware that most people aren't going to have the opportunity to even observe, let alone experience. The FireNAS is not designed for the home user, or a small home business that may have one or two staff members, but rather a medium to large sized business with up to 50+ employees, depending on how IT orientated your business is.More information at Tweakers Australia
Today Icrontic gives us a preview of Windows .NET Server.
I was able to get my hands on Windows .NET Enterprise Server Build 3660 (Beta 3), and boy do I have an article in store for you. The Windows .NET server line is set to be released in early 2003, and is truly the next generation of Microsoft server operating systems. If you aren't familiar with Windows Server, this article probably won't appeal to you. Windows Server has, obviously, a much different focus than it's desktop counterpart, and thus this preview reflects that.More information at Icrontic
Modfactor.com has had a chance to have a look at the SS2000 System from the new Starfish Technologies INC Company that specializes in high end and high quality computer systems.
The first thing you notice when looking at the SS 2000 is its unique case, the Coolermaster ATC-600 micro-ATX desktop case. With its aluminum finish and slick green front panel it is definitely something that you would be proud to sport at a LAN party. The front panel is the highest quality case door I've ever seen; it is made of plexiglass and smoothly drops down with the push of a button.More information at Modfactor.com
Ryan from AMDmb.com has an interesting article posted discussing their recent server upgrades and reasons for choosing various hardware, which is of course AMD based.
Over the past 2 years, Amdmb.com has grown beyond my wildest imaginations to become my full time job and my full time love. While attending college on the side, Amdmb.com is my work and hobby, occupying every bit of time that is not needed elsewhere. And I wouldn't have it any other way. Going from a small site with only a couple hundred thousand page views a month to a huge site with a multi-gigabyte database with millions of visitors a month has been a cause for celebration, as well as spurred a need for constant upgrades.More information at AMDmb
