Computer-in-a-plug platform looks to shrink network-connected devices

We've recently seen a computer in a keyboard, but Marvell is going one better and releasing a new hardware platform that promises a computer in a plug. The SheevaPlug platform consists of the company's Kirkwood processor, 512MB of DRAM, 512MB of flash memory, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and a USB port, all of which can fit in the size of a wall-wart-style power adapter.

Intel servers and Chinese hackers

18 months ago, Intel dropped off an SS4000-E NAS box for me to look at. It was a desirable little box on the surface – Linux-based, four drive bays, dual gigabit Ethernet ports – and I lost no time in installing it in the ZDNet UK Laboratory (Holloway).

The Ethernet Disk offers affordable network storage in a sleek rack-mountable casing. Performance isn’t great, but given its target audience this probably isn’t a show-stopper. Expansion is an issue though.

Dell announces PowerVault expansion card

Dell Computer announced an expansion card Monday that improves some of its PowerVault 750N and 755N storage systems, giving those that attach to servers by ordinary Ethernet networks the ability to connect with high-speed Fibre Channel networks. The latter technology makes a storage system appear to a server to be connected just like an internal hard drive. The new product--the result of Dell's partnership with storage giant EMC--is designed to smooth over differences between Ethernet-based network-attached storage (NAS) and Fibre Channel-based storage area networks (SANs). The card costs just under $2,500, said Matthew Brisse, product manager for the Dell-EMC product lines. --Stephen Shankland

HP unveils new storage devices

Hewlett-Packard has released two new products for making storage devices available over networks. The eight-port Surestore Entry Switch FC switch--an HP-branded version of Brocade Communications' new Silkworm 3200 switch--lets customers build storage networks using the Fibre Channel networking technology. It has a starting cost of $5,599, HP said Tuesday. A higher-end version, with more sophisticated connections to other switches, costs $16,780 and up. In addition, HP began selling the Surestore NAS 8000, a device that bridges between regular Ethernet networks and Fibre Channel storage area networks. The system, with a starting price of $36,500, effectively lets HP's VA and XP line of storage devices share files like a regular file server attached to an Ethernet network. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
