  • 12 February, 2009 13:14

<p>Taipei, Taiwan, February 11 2009 - VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the VIA NSR7800 2U rackmount server for network storage solution providers. Powered by a 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor, the VIA NSR7800 offers system integrators the opportunity to provide unparalleled power and energy-efficient server solutions to today’s energy-conscious small and medium sized business customers.</p>
<p>With eight 3.5” S-ATA II hard drive bays, the VIA NSR7800 is the perfect balance of power-efficiency, performance and capacity, an ideal starting point for a variety of rackmount server applications including email, file and web server products. The VIA NSR7800’s drive bays are easily accessible through lockable front levers that allow hard drives to be securely installed in moments. Dual Gigabit LAN ensures fast data transfer speeds.</p>
<p>A Green Server Solution
Small and medium sized businesses and enterprises are increasingly seeking ways to minimize energy consumption and reduce fuel bills. The current economic climate has only increased the pressure on businesses to further reduce their carbon footprint. Cost effective, energy efficient-storage and network solutions are now a major element in today’s transition to carbon-neutral business practices.</p>
<p>Several server applications like mail, file and web servers require far less computational power than other more power hungry applications. The VIA NSR7800 is ideal suited to these kinds of applications while consuming a fraction of the energy, generating far less heat (again requiring less energy for elaborate cooling systems) and offering unrivalled stability over extended periods of uninterrupted usage.</p>
<p>“Business leaders are now ready to accept that a power hungry IT infrastructure is no longer acceptable,” said Daniel Wu, Vice President, VIA Embedded Platform Division, VIA Technologies, Inc. “The VIA NSR7800 is an important step in the right direction, providing the right balance between performance and capacity while consuming at least 50% less energy.”</p>
<p>About the VIA NSR7800
The VIA NSR7800 is powered by a 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor and supports up to a gigabyte of DDR2 system memory. Two separate S-ATA controllers allow up to 16TB* of potential storage capacity through eight S-ATA II ports. These ports are accessible through eight lockable front panel levers allowing simple, fast installation of the systems full-size 3.5” drives. These eight S-ATA ports also feature hot-swap hardware support. Users can expect fast file transfer speeds over a network with dual gigabit LAN ports over PCI and PCIe buses. A VGA port is included on the rear for easy on-screen device configuration.</p>
<p>Individual LEDs are provided to monitor both network ports as well as three-color LEDs for each drive bay, a power LED and an overall drive activity LED. The VIA NSR7800 includes on bootable Type I Compact Flash port for discrete OS installation and an optional Mini-PCI port for additional security related add-in cards such as hardware VPN or anti-virus modules.</p>
<p>The VIA NSR7800 uses heavy duty steel casing to provide an industrial class server product that complies with current rackmount device specifications. The VIA NSR7800 supports Microsoft Windows Server 2003/2007, Windows Home Server and Linux. System monitoring and management includes a TPM module, Wake-on-LAN, Wake-on-Alarm and Watch Dog Timer.</p>
