Performance sets the Ultra apart from lesser RAID storage servers, while still outpricing the competition. Easy to use, the included browser-based utility makes server setup fast and simple.
The Ultra has hardware components carefully selected for maximum performance. Choose from fast AMD processors, or even specify a dual CPU system for ultimate speed. The Tyan Server-class motherboard give true 64-bit throughput, coupled with the Adaptec Hardware Ultra 320 RAID controller card and an Intel 64 bit Dual Port 10-100-1000-network interface.
Your Ultra will be a productive part of your network in just minutes after. Plug it in, connect it to your network, power it up and type in its logon URL at any network browser. Its graphical browser interface will have you setting up user accounts immediately, just by pointing and clicking. Full documentation is included. No linux knowledge necessary; Webmin let's you administer the Ultra as easily as surfing the web.
Ample cooling, RAID 5 redundancy, and hot swap trays and dual redundant power supplies are all part of keeping the Ultra online. As an added precaution, include the optional Dark Site controller, which monitors CPU temperature, fan RPM and many other system safeguards, then emails you through SNMP if maintenance is needed.
Unlike stripped-down NAS appliances, the Ultra has its own boot drive. If you prefer, Windows 2K Server can be loaded in lieu of Linux. Bakbone or other Linux client backup software can be loaded. Any number of high end tape drives or libraries can be driven. The included Webmin software allows you to let the Ultra as a workgroup backup server, a network print server, or an ftp server, increasing its utility and decreasing the strain on your computer equipment budget.
