NEC Solutions on Monday debuted the latest system in its fault-tolerant server line, a mid-range model that also includes new self-recovery software.

The Express5800/320Lc, optimized for fault-tolerant applications, is equipped with a pair of Xeon MP 2.8GHz processors, up to 6GB of memory, and as much as 311GB of storage space, all duplicated in separated modules for synchronized operation. The modules are each housed in a 4U-format chassis. NEC ExpressCluster Self Recovery Edition (SRE) is also bundled with the server; the new software monitors the status of designated applications and various components of the OS -- such as device drivers and system resources -- and restarts those parts of the operating system in case of a failure or lock-up. The new NEC server will ship Friday at a starting price of $24,999.
