Data General has added three low end servers to its Aviion line in an attempt to compete with the strong price positioning of high volume competitors like Dell and Compaq.
All three servers are based on Intel?s Pentium Pro chip and will offer support for five operating systems - Windows NT, Data General?s DG/UX Unix, Novell Netware, SCO Unixware and SCO Open Server.
Cheapest on offer for $3,900 is the AV 1600 tower, an entry level server for workgroup and file and print applications. Powered by a 200MHz Pentium Pro processor, it comes with 256Kbytes of integrated cache and up to 512Mbytes of ECC-protected memory. Its motherboard provides SVGA, UltraSCSI and 10/100Mbps Lan controllers, as well as system management features.
The AV 2600 tower, positioned as a departmental server, is built round one or two 200MHz Pentium Pro processors with 512Kbytes of integrated cache and up to 1Gbyte of ECC memory. It comes in at $8,100 and supports Raid 0, 1 and 5 with up to 10 hot-swap disks.
A rack-mounted version, the AV 3600R, is on offer for $13,300. It can be configured with up to three quad-processor, 512Kybtes Pentium Pro Aviion systems, packaged in a single 73-inch rack-mounted cabinet.
The new servers are available immediately and prices include a three-year, on-site warranty.
