Data General Corp has added three new servers to its Intel-based Aviion server range aimed at the Windows NT market. The new models include the AV2150, described as an entry-level system, the AV3650 departmental server and the AV 6600, a high-end server aimed at larger corporates. The low-end model has single or dual 266MHz Pentium II processors each with 512Kb cache and up to 512Mb memory, supporting four PCI and one ISA slot. The AV 3650 supports up to four 200MHz Pentium Pro processors with 1MB level two cache and 4Gb of memory. It’s available in a tower version that supports up to 12 input-output slots and as a rack mounted model with eight slots, expandable to 16. The high end offering, also rack mounted, comes with up to six 200MHz chips. The higher powered systems also run the company’s DG/UX Unix implementation, and support up to three of the company’s new fiber channel based Clariion 3000 series disk arrays, boasting 100Mb per second bandwidth. All three servers are also available for use as part of the company’s Cluster-in-a-Box clustering package (CI No 3,091), which now also supports Microsoft Exchange. The NT systems run Citrix Systems Inc’s Winframe multi-user NT software. Prices for the AV6600 with three processors start at $25,000. The AV3650 tower model costs from $9,800 and the rackmounted version begins at $11,900. Both models will be available this month with the AV 2150 available from November, priced at $3,500.
