LinuxPR: Network Concierge announces…Linux Server Appliance Software at COMDEX 99′

Network Concierge previews their second generation server
appliance software release at booth #1428 in the Linux Business

“At COMDEX in Las Vegas, Network Concierge demonstrates their
second generation (V2) server appliance software for use by
corporate system administrators, internet service providers, small
business owners, small/home office workers and multi-PC households.
The software CD will be available for ordering directly from the
company website on December 15, 1999, including a free ($10
S&H) evaluation copy. Customers can also purchase a copy with a
perpetual license for $49, which will include a free upgrade to the
final V2 software. After a 90-day beta period, the final release of
V2 will be priced at $99 to continue Network Concierge’s tradition
of delivering the most easy to use, affordable and feature-rich
server appliance solution….”

“Network Concierge powered appliances offer significantly better
price/performance than any other server appliance product on the
market. Unlike other server appliance platforms, Network Concierge
software supports dual network configurations and offers the most
comprehensive set of features/functions in the industry, which can
be enabled as required by the customer. In the Small Business
configuration, the appliance platform running Network Concierge
software can connect an unlimited number of IP-enabled clients to
the Internet via analog/ISDN/DSL/Cable modem or NIC connection.
Built-in DHCP, DNS and NAT services automatically create an instant
client-server network or network segment without having to install
software on the clients. When used in the Work Group configuration,
the network appliance platform becomes a network-ready server that
you simply plug into a pre-existing network. In either
configuration, the software comes with an e-mail server, print/file
server, web server and web-caching engine to provide all server
functions required by a small network. Additional features
supported include an automatic firewall, multi-disk/CD management,
cascading multiple servers on same network, UPS, SMP, etc.
Comparable features to the Network Concierge can only be found in
very expensive and complex multi-vendor client-server solutions
made up of network equipment stacks and/or general purpose
Windows/Unix servers that demand highly skilled and/or dedicated
technical support personnel.”
