The AVADirect Custom Small Business Server
Here we get our first look at the AVADirect Custom Small Business Server. AVA used a really nice Chenbro case that can only be described as a small form factor server chassis. The case can be used as shown or on its side. At the top the case has a locking mechanism so you can secure the server.
With the door open and the server now on its side we can see the front ports and HDD bays. The system uses four sliding trays that connect to a backplane for the drives. This makes swapping drives very easy, should you need to do so. Behind the door is the power button, so you will need the key to turn the system on if the door is locked; a nice security feature. AVA also included a slot load DVD writer. Finally, there are two USB 2.0 ports also located on the front of the server.
The side of the server has ventilation to allow the system to breathe easier.
Most of the magic happens at the back of the case, where all of the connections are made. Here we see six USB 2.0 ports, audio, the WiFi antenna mount and the ports for video. As we stated before, you will not be able to use any of the digital video connections since the system uses a PCIe RAID controller.
The other side also has vents. This is the top of the case if it is being used on its side.
Finally, we have the internals. As you can see, everything is very compact and there isn't any room to grow unless you replace existing parts.
