"A new Linux & Samba based file, print & CD Server that runs entirely from an 8Mb Flash-ROM was released today."

"The Server, dubbed the "PizzaBox Server" because an early prototype was built into a Pizza Hut take out box, not only offers File, Print & CD Services but supports tape backup, UPS monitoring, hardware monitoring, remote access and has a sophisticated Web management interface."

"The Server will be sold to resellers and end users as a fully functional server and can be sold to system builders in kit form. It runs either from standard Compact Flash or M-Systems Disk-on-Chip. It does not grab RAM to unzip into but, unusually, runs directly from the Flash. The entire system is just over 6Mb."
