NCS Introduces Ultra-Compact, Low-Cost, Low-Power and Super-Quiet Set-top Server Appliance Platforms Platforms Include New Fanless and Diskless Appliance

Suitable for Office Deployment

    MANASSAS, Va., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- NCS Technologies, a leading
 provider of servers, internet appliances, notebooks, desktops and industrial
 computers today announced the release of three new ultra-compact set-top
 server appliance platforms targeted at entry level applications.
     "The introduction of new entry level ultra-compact appliance platforms
 supports our commitment to deliver innovative products that address the cost-
 sensitive needs of our ISV customers," said Pranay Prakash, Executive
 Director, OEM Servers & Appliances for NCS.  "We will continue our engineering
 efforts and will add new products to this line as technology evolves."
     The NCSAPP 50-V is the industry's smallest low-power portable appliance
 platform designed to run in a fanless and diskless configuration.  With no
 moving parts, the 50-V appliance platform features very high reliability and
 is suited for entry level network management applications and can be
 configured as a VPN gateway, network bandwidth controller, SSL, firewall, IDS
 or IPS.  The 50-V features an embedded 600MHz VIA Eden processor, up to 1GB
 DDR 266 memory, two 10/100 Ethernet ports and Compact Flash memory.  For more

     The NCSAPP 50-P is a super quiet but robust appliance platform perfectly
 suited for 24x7 applications.  Its small footprint allows it to be placed on a
 desk or in small corners where office space is at a premium.  The 50-P
 provides unmatched performance in its unique form-factor and is suitable for
 SMB applications such as Instant Messaging, Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus and other
 security applications.  The 50-P features an Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 or an
 Intel(R) Celeron(R) processor and can be configured with a standard 3.5" EIDE
 hard drive.  The 50-P supports up to 2GB of DDR333/266 RAM and comes standard
 with 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
     Designed specifically for mass deployment and seamless operation, the
 ultra-compact NCSAPP 110-P is an ideal low-cost appliance platform suitable
 for applications such as web hosting, e-mail filtering, firewall, VPN and
 other security applications.  Unlike the 50-P, the 110-P is a 1U rack-
 mountable appliance that can also be deployed as a set-top unit.  The 110-P
 can be configured with Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 or Celeron(R) processor and has
 dual Gigabit Ethernet ports onboard.  Using a low-profile PCI expansion slot,
 two more Gigabit standalone or fail-over by-pass Ethernet ports can be added
 to the system.

     All NCSAPP appliance platforms can run BSD, Linux(TM) or Windows(R)
 operating systems and can be completely customized to develop a final
 appliance product for ISVs.  Pricing starts at $550 for an entry level
 product.  All platforms are available immediately.
