Team ASA announces 1U, 2 Terabyte NPWR tera server and Single Board Networking Computer

Peter Simms writes "San Diego, CA -- Team ASA Inc., a manufacturer of high-performance networking and storage products, today announced the newest member in the NPWR family of Single Board Networking Computers the NPWR-DP.

The NPWR-DP is Team ASAs first multi-processor Single Board Networking Computer (SBNC). The NPWR-DP processing core consist of two Intel Xscale 80200 CPUs running at 733 MHz. The NPWR-DP architecture allows 100% independence for both CPUs. The NPWR-DP I/O suite includes Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports via two Cat-5 connectors, 8 (1.5 Mbs) Serial ATA (SATA) ports, and 32/66 Mini PCI socket. The NPWR-DP memory array supports dual SO-DIMM sockets and can handle a total of 2 Gigabytes of DDR memory. The NPWR-DP has a 16MB FLASH ROM Disk for support of dissimilar operating systems if required.

The NPWR-DP is perfect for OEMs who wish to embed a high performance RAID Controller. quoted Mark Murray Team ASAs president. The NPWR-DP gives the user onboard hardware RAID with no degradation in performance across any application, continued Murray.

As with all NPWR SBNC products, customers can take the NPWR-DP out of the box and implement a new product in a single day. The NPWR-DP shares the same 5 by 8 common footprint as all other NPWR family boards. The NPWR-DP with its available mounting brackets can be installed into any half-height 5.25 drive bay.

As with every NPWR SBNC the NPWR-DP can be shipped with either Linux or NetBSD preloaded. The NPWR CDROM also includes all tools, documentation and sources needed to make any NPWR-based product an immediate success.

The price of a NPWR-DP configured with Dual 733 Mhz Intel Xscale CPUs, 512 MB of DDR SDRAM, Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and 8 SATA Ports in 100-piece quantity is $1,495.00 USD.

Team ASA, Inc. will display it's product line including all NPWR SBNCs and NPWR Server family members during the Storage and Networking World Show in Phoenix, AZ on April 5th, 6th, 7th,and 8th, 2004.

San Diego, CA -- Team ASA Inc., a manufacturer of high-performance networking and storage products, today announced the newest member in the NPWR Server family the NPWR Tera Server.

The NPWR Tera Server combines the Team ASAs NPWR Single Board Networking Computer (SBNC) family with an eight Serial ATA (SATA) disk array. The NPWR Tera Server disk array utilizes 4 to 8 Western Digital 250 gigabyte 3.5 SATA drives. This level of drive density has never been achieved in any 1U server. The NPWR Tera Server can currently be configured with up to 2 terabytes of disk storage in a 1U case.

The NPWR Tera Server supports a wide range of next generation I/O and communication protocols. The NPWR Tera server may be factory configured with Dual Gigabit Ethernet, Dual 2Gbs Fibre Channel ports, Dual 160 MB/Sec. LVD SCSI ports and 4 to 8 1.5 Mbs SATA ports.

  As with all NPWR products users have of the choice of the standard Linux OS or the NetBSD OS available from Wasabi Systems. With so many choices in storage density, I/O and OS the toughest decision our customers have to make is how they want their NPWR Tera Server configured, stated Mark Murray the President of Team ASA, Inc.

The NPWR Tera Server is designed for OEMs who wish to implement inexpensive, highly compact and dense disk storage arrays. The added advantage of the NPWR Tera Server is its relatively low price when purchased in quantity. The price of a NPWR Tera Server configured with 1 Terabyte disk array, Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and 4 SATA Ports in 100-piece quantity is $1,495.00 USD. A similarly configured NPWR Tera Server with a 2-terabyte-disk array is $2,895.00 USD.

Team ASA, Inc. will display it's product line including all NPWR SBNCs and NPWR Server family members during the Storage and Networking World Show in Phoenix, AZ on April 5th, 6th, 7th,and 8th, 2004.
