"Cobalt Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: COBT), a leading provider of server appliances, today introduced the RaQ 4r, the fourth generation of the RaQ. The RaQ 4r is an advanced server appliance with integrated powerful development tools, applications, and database in a reliable low-cost solution. The RaQ 4r offers a full suite of Internet and application services that makes the deployment of applications and layered services over the Web quick and easy."

"Cobalt developed the RaQ 4r to meet the needs of Web developers who require a reliable platform for deploying their server-based applications. With support for popular dynamic-content languages and a pre-installed database and Redundant Array Of Independent Disks (RAID), users have the tools they need to start developing industrial-strength Web applications almost immediately after an IP address is assigned to the box."

"RaQ 4r is an important release for the RaQ product family," said Kelly Herrell, vice- president of marketing, Cobalt Networks, Inc. "Cobalt continues to develop true server appliances that meet the needs of our customers, unlike many general-purpose boxes that are marketed as server appliances. Cobalt believes RaQ 4r includes native functionality that leapfrogs other offerings at a fraction of their total cost of ownership." Through the inclusion of technologies such as Chili!Soft ASP, RAID 1 (disk mirroring), PHP, and a powerful database platform from InterBase, RaQ 4r customers and developers are able to build on leading-edge development technologies while leveraging their existing tools and skill sets. Cobalt included these fully integrated development tools on the RaQ 4r to enable it to serve as an ideal appliance platform for the rapid development and deployment of Internet and network-based applications."
