Linux server company releases new models

Penguin Computing, a San Francisco maker of computers running the Linux operating system, released two new rack-mountable servers and a workstation this week. The 1.75-inch thick Relion 115 and 125 servers accommodate 4GB of memory and two 1.26GB Pentium III CPUs--each with a 512k cache. The 115 uses lower-end IDE hard drives; the 125 uses faster, but more expensive, SCSI drives. Penguin also sells Altus servers using Advanced Micro Devices CPUs. The Relion 405 Tower workstation uses dual 1.26GHz Pentium III CPUs, but accommodates as many as six SCSI hard drives. A Relion 115 with two 1.26GHz processors and 1GB of memory costs about $3,800, according to Penguin's Web site.
