Dell opts for smart chassis design for Precision

Dell’s Precision T3400 has what the manufacturer calls a “smart chassis” design which allows for either mini-tower or desktop orientation, along with rotating optical drives that can be installed horizontally or vertically. A single socket supports Intel’s Core 2 Duo and Extreme processors, while the machine itself supports 800Mhz ECC memory from 1GB to 8GB. Customers can order the system with up to four hard drives. A base configuration starts at $899 CAN. EMC is taking the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups approach to storage by unifying two popular products into an intregated package. RecoverPoint (pictured) will now include data de-duplication from its Avamar product, which backs up information from remote or branch offices and data centres, storing only a single copy of sub-file data across sites and servers. EMC says it will allow better management for scheduling, policy creation, monitoring and reporting. Pricing was not announced.

Earlier this year I attended Toronto’s Festival of Technology & Design, where the Chumby was launched. The exterior is made of cloth, and it’s intended to deliver real-time information through Adobe Flash-animated widgets. Yes, most of that information will be about things like the weather, but why couldn’t this be adapted in the enterprise for non-power users? The Chumby will go on sale this month.
