Via Technologies on Tuesday announced a compact home server that will be powered by low-power processors, which are traditionally designed to run in laptops and netbooks.
The company’s Mserv S2100 device will run on the Nano processor in a desktop-size box that is 10.2 inches (0.25 meters) long and 4.7 inches high, the company said. The processor will operate at speeds between 1.3GHz and 1.6GHz.
This kind of device might easily meet the needs of many different businesses, we need to remember that not everyone is in the same place in terms of their technical or business requirements, that using appropriate technology is the way forward. I’m off to read up more, I wonder if this would not be an ideal file and print or even SharePoint/wiki server? It reminds me of the concept of a Mac Mini as a grid engine, very cool.
