Jan 24, 2000, 19:00 (0 Talkback[s])

"ApplianceWare Inc. (formerly REALM Information Technologies), providers of affordable, easy-to-use server appliance software solutions, and Linux desktop device pioneer Maxspeed Corporation today announced a co-marketing alliance that will allow the companies to team in promoting and selling end-to-end appliance solutions to customers. Combining ApplianceWare's Linux-based network-attached storage server appliances with Maxspeed's best-in-class Linux desktop devices will allow organizations to deploy robust, highly reliable and easy-to-support systems for networked productivity."

"Maxspeed's MaxStations use a proprietary high-speed protocol between the client and server that offers unrivaled performance in a server-centric architecture. On the back end, a traditional Linux or Windows server delivers applications to the MaxStations. ApplianceWare devices provide fast, reliable file serving and protect the integrity of user data by storing it off the main server. This is a pronounced advantage over traditional server architectures, which are less reliable because of the many applications running simultaneously."

"ApplianceWare's highly reliable server appliance products are a valuable addition to Maxspeed's robust Linux desktop architecture," said Wei Ching, Maxspeed president. "Reliability, simplicity and cost efficiency are hallmarks of Maxspeed's products. By uniting traditional servers with ApplianceWare's server appliance solutions, we will deliver an enhanced product that will be enthusiastically received in the marketplace. This alliance is an example of the significant added value available to customers and prospects when we combine Maxspeed Linux solutions with leading complementary products and services."
