"Threshold Networks, a provider of server appliances, announces the availability of a line of server appliances designed to empower the edge of the Internet."

"Three products, EDGE Web, EDGE Cache, and EDGE IP, are scalable, fault-tolerant solutions that can be implemented in any environment, ranging from small corporations to top Internet Service Providers...."

"EDGE Web - Web appliances have found a new standard to which they can compare themselves. To start, EDGE Web supports SSL, has a full-featured firewall, and is based on the Apache HTTP engine, which is widely recognized to be the most powerful web server in use today. The appliance can easily support hundreds of domains, using either virtual IP or virtual hosting methods. Once a domain is created, the administrator has the ability to enable e-mail and FTP services, turning EDGE Web into a powerful web, e-mail, and FTP server. As a comprehensive development platform, the EDGE Web is enabled to support PHP, CGI, Java VM, and Mod Perl. For individual control, accounts can be created which give end users the ability to maintain websites, as well as add e-mail and FTP accounts. EDGE Web also contains a powerful mailing list application and is the only server capable of fully supporting both Microsoft Frontpage subweb administration and Microsoft ASP extensions."
