Breakthrough Servers Accelerate Robust Performance with Zero Configuration

Atipa Linux Solutions, best recognized as one of the first dedicated Linux solutions companies, today announced the availability of its high performance Linux server for enterprise applications.

Known as the ALPHAserver AT2000(TM), the new Linux solution can boost server processing speeds with zero configuration. When combined with dual 667MHz Alpha 21264 processors, the new server provides organizations with low risk, high availability scalable solutions for increasing the performance of business-critical applications.

The ALPHAserver AT2000 is a powerful web, file, application or database server with one or two 667MHz Alpha 21264 microprocessors and up to 2 GB of RAM. Combined with the stability and reliability of the SuSE Linux 6.1 or Red Hat Linux 6.0 operating system, ALPHAserver AT2000 will improve processing speeds, increase productivity through quicker file availability while decreasing downtime due to system failure. The server will be available for order at www.atipa.com by August 10 with 667MHz processors, by Q4 1999 with the 750MHz processor.

"As organizations become increasingly reliant on their servers for critical applications, financial transactions and workflow, downtime has become unacceptable," said Jason Talley, president of Atipa Linux Solutions, "This new server will provide the perfect platform for high performance Alpha Linux enterprise applications."

The ALPHAserver AT2000 virtually eliminates downtime due to system failure, and provides increased reliability for critical applications. With the Alpha processor, the industry's fastest 64-bit microprocessors, the ALPHAserver AT2000 provides a dramatic boost in server performance and delivers previously unattainable levels of reliability.

"It's been proven that Alpha's superior speed, performance and reliability make it a natural environment for Linux," said Jeff Borkowski, vice president of sales and marketing for Alpha Processor, Inc. "As a leading supplier of pre-configured Linux workstations, servers and clusters, Atipa is helping us broaden the market for Alpha and enabling us to bring powerful Alpha Linux solutions for business-critical applications to market."

Unlike a conventional server, the ALPHAserver AT2000 requires no configuration or reconfiguration of the workstations.
