Revolutionary Server Connectivity and Flexibility
|JES now introduces its next in a series of network
appliances NET RAPTOR and RAPTOR MIRROR. These products are a new
line of direct network shared hard disk systems. They are designed to replace convential
file servers in that the function of opening, closing and the transfer of data files has
been taken out of the server and brought directly to the network. These systems cost about
one third of the price of a high performance server and are just as fast and even faster
in certain network topologies. We now have a way of truly distributing processing across a
network. Now have separate appliances for databases, WORD, EXCEL and other applications.
Computer users need no longer battle for server time. All processing is distributed over
several appliances and not a central file server. The system requires no expensive network
operating system (SOHO) all users communicate to the device through TCP/IP. If you do
already have a network operating system the appliance will attach to it easily and
instantly increase your computing power and overall storage. The appliances come in two
different configurations Direct connect hard drives and mirrored hard drives. The NET
RAPTOR hard drive system comes in a two bay tower and can be expanded to seven drives. The
RAPTOR MIRROR system comes in a two bay hot swap tower and can be expanded to six drives
or three mirrors. The mirror system is firmware based for high performance. The RAPTOR
systems themselves can easily be repaired as all components are hot pluggable. The NET
RAPTOR and RAPTOR MIRROR system will come in a 1,2,4,9,23 GIG formats. The entire system
is configurable through a web browser like "Internet Explorer".
