VIA outs first server with own Nano CPU
VIA this week introduced its M'SERV S2100 mini server meant for home and small business users. Powered by VIA's own 1.6GHz Nano CPU, the server has the capacity to hold two 3.5-inch SATA II hard drives with up to 4TB of space. There is an integrated CF card slot from which users can boot the S2100, two gigabit Ethernet ports, three USB 2.0 ports and a VGA output. VIA says the server can perform network video recording and virtual server applications thanks to its VT virtualization support, among others.
The VIA M'SERV S2100 supports Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 Foundation, along with Linux distributions that include Ubuntu, SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 Service Pack 2 and FreeBSD. Sales are so far reserved for OEMs and system integrators. [via SlashGear]
