PENGUIN COMPUTING: NEW INTEL SERVERS AND WORKSTATION.

Penguin Computing Inc. has debuted three additions to its Relion line of server systems, each incorporating the latest generation of Intel Pentium III processors.

"These new powerful Intel-based platforms, coupled with Penguin Computing's customization capabilities, raise the bar for rapid deployment of systems specifically tailored to customer's needs," said Sam Ockman, CEO for Penguin Computing. "These new systems assure that our customers are getting the absolute latest technology with a solid upgrade path for the future of their infrastructure."

Penguin Computing's new 1U rack mount servers are the Relion 115 and Relion 125, and its new server-class workstation, the Relion 405 Tower.

The Relion 115 was engineered with HPC (High Performance Computing) clustering in mind. Built around dual Intel Pentium III processors up to 1.26 GHz (512k cache) and up to 4GB of PC133 Ram, the Relion 115 has the processing power to satisfy the needs of demanding educational and research institutions.

To make sure this performance does not come at a premium price, the Relion 115 is available with one or two cost-effective ATA-100 IDE hard drives, for up to 200GB of system storage.

The Relion 125 is Penguin Computing's high-availability, ultra rack-dense general-purpose server that has been designed to deliver new levels of performance, availability, and scalability in a space-saving 1U form factor. The Relion 125 features dual Intel Pentium III processors up to 1.26GHz and up to 4GB of Ram, coupled with a pair of hot-swappable SCSI disks and a wide variety of RAID options, including attachments for external storage systems.

The Relion 405 Tower is the workstation equivalent of Penguin Computing's Relion 405 rack mount server. Designed as a standalone workgroup server or as a System Administrator's console, it boasts top Intel Pentium III performance with up to dual 1.26GHz (512k cache) processors and up to 4GB of Ram.

Storage is provided by up to 6 SCSI hard drives with RAID options to protect vital data. In addition, the Relion 405 Tower is also an ideal system for processor-intensive multimedia applications, with a wide variety of audio/visual peripherals available as well.

Penguin Computing Inc. is a Linux Solution Partner, removing the complexity involved in developing and deploying fully customized hardware, software, and service solutions. Founded in 1998 by Open Source advocate Sam Ockman, Penguin Computing is based in San Francisco, California and is privately held.

IDC predicts that the market for Linux servers will reach 1.9 million units by 2004, which Penguin Computing estimates to be equivalent to $5.7 billion. Penguin Computing pursues this emerging market by delivering fully integrated infrastructure solutions, professional services and support through cutting edge customization capabilities. [sections]
