Dell To Intro Souped Up Workgroup Server
Dell Computer this week will enhance its line of workgroupofferings with the introduction of a server designed to
bring high-availability features and Pentium III 667-MHz
technology to the workgroup level.
The PowerEdge 2400 server, scheduled to ship this month, is
Dell's first workgroup server to feature hot-swappable
redundant power supplies. Dell officials say the 2400's
feature set reflects a growing trend of bringing high-level
functionality to workgroups and small businesses. "This is
the first time these kinds of features have been available
to that level at a suitable price point," says Russ Ray,
product manager for Dell's departmental workgroup servers
The 2400 also supports up to 180 Gbytes of internal storage
and up to 2 Gbytes of SDRAM. The PowerEdge will be priced at
Industry watchers characterize the 2400 as a response to
recent systems introduced by Dell's rivals. Says Joe
Ferlazzo, an analyst at Technology Business Research: "IBM
led the way in terms of bringing high-availability features
to the lower end of the market with Netfinity, so the others
have to follow suit."
