Linuxlab, Inc. yesterday announced that its ground-breaking 4-in-1 Web servers will now come packed with up to 512 MB of RAM per server, up from the previous limit of 256 MB.

The increased RAM greatly enhances server performance for its Pentium-III servers. Linuxlab introduced the first commercially available Linux-based four-in-one server back in March.

Linuxlab, Inc. yesterday announced that its ground-breaking 4-in-1 Web servers will now come packed with up to 512 MB of RAM per server, up from the previous limit of 256 MB.

The E-Power ThinRack 4-in-1 server claims the smallest footprint in the industry, while it keeps performance high and costs low, said Charles Liu, Linuxlab chairman and chief technology officer.

The 4-in-1 server provides the basis for the Linuxlab Saratoga 160 server farm, a product that holds up to 160 servers in a standard six-foot equipment rack. It reduces the space required for larger server clusters and more allows for more efficient use of limited workspace.

In addition to increased RAM, Linuxlab's new ThinRack has expanded hard disk capacity. Servers now come with 6 GB, 18 GB, or 20 GB of storage space. They also come with four power supplies per case, up from two, providing greater reliability for server operations.

Liu said Linuxlab engineers will customize hardware and software products to meet enterprise-specific requirements. Enterprises that have basic requirements, but still need multiple servers can employ the 4-in-1 with 500 MHz Intel Celeron microprocessors. (Celerons allow providers to take advantage of the power of server clusters while minimizing costs.)
