Tadpole-RDI Adds "On-Board" Video To Its Portable Unix Servers

Carlsbad (CA) and Cambridge (UK), November 29, 2000 - Tadpole-RDI today announced significant enhancements to its UltraSPARC IIiTM-driven VoyagerIIiTM portable servers.
Effective today, the phone book-sized portable server will be shipped with an integrated audio and video capability providing Tadpole customers with "on-board" video allowing the PCI slot to be used, for example, for dual resolution video output, or increased ethernet connectivity.
VoyagerIIi, launched in mid-1998, has proven one of Tadpole-RDI's most successful product developments to date. A full specification VoyagerIIi now boasts 440MHz UltraSPARC IIi processors, RAM to 1GB, disk capacity to 100GB while weighing in at just 10 lbs., and about the size of a phone book (12.7 x 10.2 x 4.0 inches). Pricing starts at $12,410, exclusive of sales tax.

A growing market for the portable server is training; for example, real-time customer management and billing software vendor, Portal Software, recently adopted the VoyagerIIi server for off-site customer training. Product availability with on-board audio/graphics enhancement as standard - immediate. ...Tadpole-RDI profile

For large systems, Solaris on SPARC will continue to be a better choice than NT for many years. These are the real reasons why...

Should Sun Microsystems make its own brand of "Intel Inside®" PC's?

SPARC resellers - are they important? Do we really need them? Resellers were important in the development of the SPARC market in the 1990's. Will the web change that?

Sun Microsystems needs Intel and Microsoft to be successful - to fuel the insatiable demand for SPARC servers.

Financial Fusion and Sun Microsystems White Paper Documents Performance Test Results for Online Banking Transactions

BOSTON, Mass. November 28, 2000 - Financial Fusion, Inc. and Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced today that they have released a white paper that analyzes how the Financial Fusion Web & Wireless System(TM) running on Sun Enterprise(TM)450 servers is able to meet the arduous demands of the growing population of Web banking customers. The performance test outlined in the white paper examines the hardware system and software applications offered by Financial Fusion and Sun Microsystems, that financial institutions would require to meet the Online Banking Report's (May 31, 2000) projected Web banking population growth to 30 million total users by 2004. The results of the Financial Fusion and Sun Microsystems performance test prove that a financial institution can deploy this leading, robust solution on the market today without the associated high-cost investment in technology and infrastructure demanded by other Web banking solutions.

The performance test shows that Financial Fusion Web & Wireless System running on Sun Enterprise 450 servers can quickly and reliably process a complex matrix of customer transactions totaling more than five million in any given day - with peak loads of 388,494 transactions processed during the densest hour. The research showed user scalability results leading the industry today with support for a customer base of a financial institution with 4,644,835 users, that could handle the demands of 10,791 concurrent users, with 90% of all transactions processed in less than two seconds in the tested configuration. Additionally, the research demonstrated the capacity to scale to support over 8.5 million users based on the assumptions outlined in the white paper. ...Financial Fusion profile, ...Sun Microsystems profile
