Pint-sized server device uses Intel’s new XScale CPU

San Diego, CA — (press release excerpt) — Team ASA Inc. today announced the Npwr Server, a compact, self-contained Linux-based server that is roughly the same size as an external disk drive expansion box. The device, which is based on Intel's new XScale RISC processor, comes equipped with 128 MB of SDRAM and 4MB of flash ROM, and provides a built-in high performance SCSI hard drive and a Gigabit… Ethernet LAN interface.

The Npwr Server's standard Linux-based software suite supports client connection between Mac OS 8-X, Windows 98, NT-2K, UNIX, and Linux based systems. While the device can readily be customized for unique applications, typical applications for the device are expected to include using it as a personal NAS device, Web Server, personal Linux server, or Internet-attached storage server. AppleShare IP file transfer rates can exceed 20 Megabyte per second. Multiple NPWR Server units can also be configured as scalable clustered servers.

Team ASA will begin shipping the NPWR Server next month, in two models — one with a 600 MHz processor and a built-in 30 gigabyte hard drive, and the other with a 733 MHz processor and 60 gigabyte hard drive.
