"The new systems expand Dell's award-winning line of powerful, "rack-optimized" servers, which are ideal for Internet and intranet applications.The servers are just 1U in height (1.75 inches), which allows companies to stack a large amount of computing power into a very small space. Other products in Dell's line of rack-dense servers include the 2U, two processor PowerEdge 2450 server, 4U, four processor PowerEdge 6450 application server, 7U, eight processor PowerEdge 8450 database server and a full line of 1U and 2U PowerApp appliance servers for Web serving, caching and load balancing applications."

"The PowerEdge 350 is a cost-effective, general-purpose server that supports a single Intel Celeron or Pentium III processor, as many as two IDE hard disk drives, up to 1GB of ECC SDRAM memory and dual, integrated Intel Pro 10/100+ NICs.The PowerEdge 350 offers an even smaller footprint and lower power consumption than the PowerEdge 1550 making it ideal for space-constrained customers who are value driven. The PowerEdge 1550 and PowerEdge 350 will be available with Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 Server or Red Hat Linux 7 factory installed. For more information on the PowerEdge 1550 and PowerEdge 350, go to www.dell.com/poweredge."

"The PowerApp.web 120 is built on the same high-performance hardware platform as the PowerEdge 1550, while the PowerApp.web 110 is a cost-effective Linux-based Web server that supports a single Intel Celeron processor and up to two IDE hard disk drives."
