FRAMINGHAM (04/27/2000) - Novell Inc. last week announced a new option for its hosted file services product. Dubbed JustOn Hosted File Services, the "connected caches" feature lets users position Novell Internet Caching Systems locally and quickly access data stored in JustOn accounts from a Web browser.
This is one of the first products to come out of Novell's acquisition of Just On.
JustOn Hosted File Services may be used to store files online for collaboration with traveling or disconnected users. A company could store a group of multimedia or broadcast files at JustOn's location for use by its sales representatives.
Hosted File Services is available now starting at $1,200 per month for 20M bit/ sec of consumed data.
Allied Telesyn last week rolled out a low-priced Gigabit Ethernet switch aimed at bulking up the backbone for small to midsize businesses.
The AT-9006SX/SC managed Gigabit Ethernet switch has six 1000Base-SX ports and two expansion slots. Optional modules, including 10/100TX ports (four per expansion module) or 100FX ports can be added.
Running in full-duplex mode, each Gigabit port can provide up to 2000M-bps of aggregate bandwidth. With six 1000Base-SX ports, the AT-9006SX/SC provides an aggregate throughput of up to 11.8 million packet/sec. when configured with eight 1000BaseSX ports, the company says.
The switch supports IEEE 802.1p Priority Queuing and 802.1Q VLAN Tagging. It is available now for $5,385, or $897 per port.
