San Jose, CA — (press release excerpt) — Coventive Technologies today announced a new line of Linux-based server appliance products including the Blade Server, the Multi-Function Server Appliance, and the Windows-Based Terminal. The new devices are intended to offer increased simplicity, reliability, and scalability in replacing traditional server solutions. Additionally, Coventive is leveraging its alliances with Asian device manufacturers to offer customers aggressive price points that meet each business' budgetary constraints.

  • Coventive Multi-Function Server Appliance (MFA) Solution is an embedded Linux-based server with pre-installed and pre-configured services including Web publishing, file/print sharing, VPN and SSL encryption, DHCP and Firewall, PPPoE, NAT, and VPN. The MFA also supports multiple platforms and comes ready with a multi-lingual interface. Small to medium enterprise users simply plug-and-work without complex installation steps.

  • Coventive Windows-Based Terminal (WBT) Solution delivers the productivity and flexibility of a PC without the constraints of traditional desktop computers. Powered by Coventive's embedded Linux OS and equipped with multiple terminal emulation standards including RDP and ICA, the WBT enables corporate users to run Windows and thin client applications through centralized servers without sacrificing performance, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.

  • Coventive Blade Server Solution is Coventive's flagship product, offering cutting edge technology in the server appliance market. Based on proven Pentium technology, the Blade Server offers innovative compactPCI packaging featuring high density and hot-swappable capability. It sets new economic and redundancy standards for Web hosting facilities and Internet data centers, and is ideal for space-constrained xSPs hoping to maximize transactions per square footage of data center real estate. The High Density Blade Server solution is the first appliance solution to offer intelligent clustering, application-level fail-over, redundancy, and dynamic load balancing.
The new Server Appliance products featuring embedded Linux software solutions are available immediately through Coventive's distribution channels in Asia, and with near term distribution planned for the US, Europe, and the Middle East.
