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.

appliance product for ISVs. Pricing starts at $550 for an entry level
product. All platforms are available immediately.
