RadiSys Announces a 1U Platform for Appliance Servers

2/19/2003 - RadiSys Corp. (Nasdaq: RSYS) announced a 1U platform designed for OEMs who are developing a variety of complex appliances on a single common server platform. The TS1100 is fully configurable meaning OEMs can create an entire product family with differentiated performance levels, all from the same basic platform.

OEMs try to gain economy of scale in their product line by leveraging a common platform across multiple applications and segments. These platforms are typically given new personalities through the use of PCI cards and application specific software. Added to this requirement is the need for long life in the component selection. The TS1100 was developed through close interaction with customers to address all the above requirements.

The RadiSys TS1100 is based on an industry standard, microATX long-life motherboard and supports a full-length PCI expansion card. The full-length card slot allows OEMs the flexibility of using many off-the-shelf, half to full-length PCI cards to target specific applications. Typical applications include video servers, semiconductor test equipment, Virtual Private Network (VPN) gateways, load balancers, firewalls, content filtering servers, traffic shapers, and intrusion detection systems.

"We've had a successful track record with our long life motherboards and expanding our product offering to provide a more integrated solution is a key initiative for the company," said Fred Yentz, vice president for RadiSys. "We have significant experience in system integration and have been working closely with our customers to develop a standard solution."

It features three drive bays for mass storage devices such as floppy, hard drive and CD-ROM; front panel accessible power and reset switches along with LED indicators for power and hard disk drive activity. Other features include a 200W power supply along with four center-mounted fans for efficient cooling.
