Encanto Networks Inc, the internet business operation fronted by former Novell Inc chairman, president and chief executive Robert Frankenberg, has taken the wraps off a web server designed to enable companies to get an electronic commerce site up and running quickly and easily. E.go Commerce is a fully integrated hardware, software and services package, Java-based web server designed to be used by small businesses. Encanto claims organizations can establish a web site in around 30 minutes, that will take orders and receive payment for goods. The Santa Clara, California-based company showed the product off at the Fall Internet World show in New York last week, and is confident that the product is a major step in enabling smaller companies to take advantage of the growing electronic commerce phenomenon. Aside from enabling electronic commerce capabilities, E.go Commerce provides internet access and basic management services over a standard telephone line. The product uses the company’s Instant Connect service to provide a continual web connection. Encanto describes the product as a web station, and claims the hardware can store over 25,000 text pages. It uses a 56Kbs modem, has two serial ports, a four part Ethernet hub, all housed in a closed box. The product will retail at $1,300 or $1,400 with ISDN, and is due for release in February. Encanto has already seen a reasonable degree of interest from the industry and has formed alliances to deliver E.go Commerce, with the likes of Eastman Kodak Co, Hewlett-Packard Co, Marimba Inc and Sun Microsystems Inc.
