"Out-of-Box Server Applicance and Backup Solutions Meet Wide Range of Market Needs."

""Tape storage innovators, Ecrix Corp. and Knox Software, unveiled a reseller program under which the companies, in collaboration with the Sun Cobalt server appliance business unit of Sun Microsystems, Inc., provide complete turnkey storage backup solutions in concert with Sun Cobalt's RaQ 4i and Qube 3 server appliance sales. With these solutions, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can offer increased data security, adding value to their product offerings."

"The reseller program offers an incentive through the use of manufacturer rebates; making the total solution cost less than if the various components are purchased separately. The rebates are available to resellers for products purchased through distribution or direct from the manufacturers. Sun is offering the corresponding promotion to Sun Cobalt reseller partners through their web site (www.cobalt.com). As a result, resellers get turnkey hardware and software solutions whose interoperability is directly supported by the manufacturers. These solutions make the deployment of applications, layered services and data backup over the Web quick, easy and profitable. More importantly, a web browser-based user interface simplifies administration and enables out-ofbox installations in 30 minutes or less."
