Greencomputer Introduces PowerElf II Black Edition PowerElf Black Edition Server Appliance with Dual Core, SMP Processing Up to Four Times Faster than previous model

By | May 16, 2006

Greencomputer Innovation, Ltd. today unveiled its new PowerElf® II Black Edition™ server appliance featuring a dual core Intel Pentium D processor which delivers up to four times the performance of the previous PowerElf model.

The new “Black Edition” server can be configured with up to 3GB of dual-channel memory, hardware-based RAID mirror subsystem, dual Gigabit Ethernet network connectors and ships pre-loaded with the latest version of PE2/OS™ operating system. Styling cues reveal black aluminum diamond-plate, an attractive brushed aluminum power button, efficient dual case fans; all found in a sleek new chassis. With unparalleled multi-core processing performance, low cost and ease of use, the server will provide excellent value for customers.

The PowerElf II Black Edition is a professional-grade server appliance solution for small and medium size businesses (SMB) who require centralized Internet firewall security, intrusion detection, full web and email hosting, global antispam protection, company-wide virus scanning, VPN access, user or IP web content filtering, fast network access storage (NAS) and a multitude of other functions in one pre-configured and ultra-reliable package.

“The PowerElf II Black Edition delivers the speed and power to process a huge amount of data, yet it comes in a very small and efficient form factor,” said Tyler Monroe, Business Development, Greencomputer Innovation. “With a proven history of rock-solid reliability and an unbeatable total cost of ownership, PowerElf has once again leveled the playing field for many small businesses.”

Pushing the boundaries of server design

For 2006, the PowerElf II Black Edition continues in the tradition of cutting-edge server designs from Greencomputer. While being the most understated PowerElf to-date, the new look is bold compared to back-end network equipment today. The series features a black powder coat finish that provides optimal resistance to scratching and peeling, providing durability for many years. Aluminum diamond-plate and a brushed-metal power button show off its industrial styling cues, without affecting reliability or functionality. Illuminating green light replaces the traditional LED, and may be turned off by the end-user, where excess ambient light can be bothersome. The illuminated ring around the power button indicates that the server is operational.

Advanced networking technology made simple

The appliance server can be set up in as little as 15 minutes. After plugging the unit in, the end-user answers some questions about their network layout and the server is operational. The PowerElf II is a non-complicated, robust server solution and is configured via a simple point-and-click interface through a web browser. It can even be administered by non-technical people because Greencomputer has taken the complexity out of network technology and made it simple.
