Maxtor releases improved storage server

Maxtor has released a new, 1.75-inch thick, rack-mountable storage server with 640GB or 480GB of capacity, the company said this week. The models cost $5,499 and $4,999, respectively. The system comes with evaluation versions of MaxAttach EMS software for managing e-mail and SVS software for grouping several storage systems together into a larger virtual machine. The systems use a special version of Windows, an 866MHz Pentium III chip, and 384MB of memory. The systems are useful for tasks such as housing e-mail or providing a faster data-backup alternative to tape.
