* Smallest dual Intel Nocona rack-mount servers on market
* Designed for processor-intensive applications

Swindon, England – 9 October 2004 - Tatung Server has launched two dual-processor 64-bit Intel Nocona rack-mount servers that are only 1u (44mm) high. The high performance Tatung Server TSS-1551 and TSS-1851, available immediately, are based on the same technology as Tatung's 2u servers, but sacrifice storage and PCI slots to halve the height. Supporting twin Nocona processors up to 3.6Ghz, the TS-1551 / TSS-1851 can accommodate three hot-swap drives (SATA RAID / SCSI) and two PCI cards.

"Once more, Tatung Server has raised the bar for high performance servers," said Mark Burnett, UK Sales Manager for Tatung Server. "The new 1u servers pack the latest technology into the smallest of form factors and will appeal to users with power-hungry applications, such as E-commerce, ERP, CRM, CAD and any database application. The increased performance, scalability and availability of the new server solutions means that a single server cabinet, equipped with Tatung technology, can accommodate more power servers than other manufacturers."

Tatung Server made its debut into the UK market in September. The company aims to offer better price/performance than any other manufacturer, drawing on over ten years experience of design and manufacture of server products.

The new 1u dual-Nocona servers, available through Tatung Server's UK distribution channel, can accommodate three, hot swappable SerialATA/ Ultra320 SCSI drives, and up to 24Gb of DDR RAM. One full height and one low-profile PCI slots are provided, and twin Gigabit LAN connections ensure wide connection to the outside world.

Available immediately, the Tatung Server TSS-1551 has an RRP of £1799 + VAT, whilst the TSS-1851 is priced at £1849 + VAT, which includes a 3-year on-site warranty. The growing server range is available through Tatung Server's UK distribution channel.
