Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"In a move to lower costs, speed order delivery and provide more flexible network appliances, computing pioneer Netier Technologies, Inc. is adopting M-Systems, Inc.'s (Nasdaq:FLSH) latest-generation flash disk technology."

"Netier, a Dallas-based designer of network management software, embedded applications and solid-state information appliances, today began shipping NetXpress information appliances featuring M-Systems' new DiskOnChip DIMM2000, the first compact, solid-state flash disk offered on a standard 144-pin dual in-line memory module (DIMM)."

"...Unlike traditional thin clients, Netier's NetXpress access devices offer the robust local processing performance needed to support both 16- and 32-bit operating systems like Microsoft Windows NT Embedded, Linux, and Netier's NetWin (Windows 3.x). With these powerful embedded operating systems, NetXpress appliances support embedded Web browsers and media players, Internet telephony, Citrix ICA Client and Microsoft RDP Client, customer-specific applications and all operating system-compatible peripheral drivers. NetXpress' powerful embedded operating systems and high-performance hardware support peripherals such as smart card and magnetic strip readers, touch screen technology, biometrics, and more."
