For many large departments, small companies, and internet providers, one or two Pentium Pro chips can easily provide enough processing power to handle their daily network traffic. Most single and dual processingservers, however, can't even begin to accommodate the storage requirementsof these users. And that's why we've developed the ALR REVOLUTION DUAL6. With support for up to two 200-MHz Pentium Pro chips and up to Nineteen Drives, me Revolution Dual6 is the system of choice for network supervisors with limited budgets and massive data storage requirements.
For enhanced throughput in more demanding networking environments, the ALR Revolution Dual6 is available with Intel's new 200/512 processor. The larger level two cache integrated onto this chip makes it an ideal choice for demanding multiprocessor/multiuser applications.
Engineered in compliance with Intel's MP spec vl.1 and 1.4, the Revolution Dual6 offers compatibility with SMP versions of all popular network operating systems. With its advanced Pentium Pro technology, it's also an ideal platform for next generation operating system such as Windows NT Server 4.0 and Novell Netware 4.1 SMP.
Still, what really makes this system stand out is it's amazing storage capabilities. Featuring virtually the same design as our Award-winning Revolution Q-SMP and Revolution Quad6 servers, the system offers a total of fourteen drive bays. Add five optional ALR Quick HotSwap II drive cages, and that number increases to nineteen.
With all five cages and an appropriate RAID controller installed, the Revolution Dual6 supports over 30-GB of removable data storage. Utilized in a RAID 5 configuration, it offers massive storage capabilities and on-line rebuilding and replacement of failed drives. If your company lives and dies by its database, the ALR Revolution Dual6 has the enhanced data security and access you need, at a price you can afford.
Of course, not all companies require such a large volume of hot-swappable storage. ALR Quick HotSwap II cages can be added one at a time, providing maximum flexibility for a wide range of applications. Without any HotSwap drive cages installed, the Revolution Dual6 sports eleven available 5.25" drive bays. This design makes the Revolution Dual6 an ideal server for library management, document retrieval, and other applications requiring multiple CD-ROM drives.
The VO design of the ALR Revolution Dual6 was also engineered to keep your options open. To maintain compatibility with the widest variety of popular I/O cards, the ALR Revolution Dual6 includes both a dual PCI bus architecture and a 32-bit EISA bus.
With two PCI busses, the Revolution Dual6 can support up to seven high speed 32-bit devices. Full bus mastering is available on all slots, making this system an ideal home for high performance SCSI controllers and other intelligent add-ons. To accommodate your existing enhancement cards, the system board also includes four EISA/ISA bus slots. Three of these slots share a position with three of the PCI slots, giving me Revolution Dual6 a maximum capacity of eight enhancement boards.
This innovative I/O design is matched by an extraordinarily generous memory subsystem. The ALR Revolution Dual6 comes standard with 64-MB of RAM, upgradeable to a whopping 1-GB. That's enough RAM to easily handle the demands of dozens of users. Of course, with this many users dependent on a system, memory integrity is at a premium. And that's why the Revolution Dual6 employs ECC (error checking and correcting) technology.
And like our award-winning Revolution Quad6 servers, Revolution Dual6 comes standard with ALR InforManager. This integrated hardware management system flags potential problems before they lead to lost data and component damage. Optional redundant power supplies, each with independent line-in power, further reduce the chance of downtime.
And to protect both your data and hardware against unauthorized access, the ALR Revolution Dual6 includes a number of integrated security features. Locking front panels and three levels of password protection provide a first line of defense, while an array of built-in security sensors sound the alarm in the event of unauthorized intruders.
But even with all these security features, maintaining and upgrading the ALR Revolution Dual6 is easy. To access 1/0 cards, processors, and memory, simply unlock the right side of the chassis and remove three screws. The opposite side of the chassis can also be removed, for easy installation of drives and other devices. And to make working on this system as easy as possible, we've even equipped the ALR Revolution Dual6 with a set of heavy duty wheels.
This attention to detail is just another example of the quality engineered into every ALR Revolution Dual6. Quality that ALR backs with its industry leading 5 year/36 month warranty, and a full three years of free on-site service.
It all adds up to the ideal system for your storage hungry network. To get a closer look, visit your local ALR reseller. Or call:
With32-bit applications and operating systems such as Windows NT rapidly becoming the business standard, there’s an undeniable need for a new class of corporate computer. Which is why ALR engineered the ALR EVOLUTION DUAL6 DT professional corporate workstation. Inspired by ALR’s award-winning servers, this system features powerful 180 or 200-MHZ Pentium Pro technology, support for true Dual Processing, and server class auto-recovery features. It’s ideal for the most intense 32-bit business applications as well as any desktop environment demanding both uncompromised performance and extensive flexibility.
Engineered by ALR to take full advantage of Intel’s most powerful Pentium Pro chips, the Evolution Dual6 DT supports either 256- or 512-KB of integrated L2 cache running at full CPU speed. The result is a level of 32-bit performance that far exceeds even the fastest Pentium processor-based PCs. And should you ever need even more power, the ALR EVOLUTION DUAL6 DT offers a simple upgrade path to MP Spec v1.1 and v1.4 compliant dual processing. Of course, sheer power alone isn’t enough when you are looking for a corporate desktop. You need a system that you can depend on day-in and day-out. Which is why every Evolution Dual6 DT features ALR InforManager system management technology. Utilizing 17 integrated sensors, InforManager monitors several critical aspects of system operation, including cooling fan status, system voltage, and temperature. If any of these areas fall out of spec, InforManager automatically issues an alert. This early warning system gives users the ability to correct system problems before they lead to extensive downtime and costly component damage.
But perhaps one of the most unique aspects of ALR InforManager is it’s ActiveCPRTM processor protection and failure recovery system. In a dual processor equipped ALR Evolution Dual6 DT, ActiveCPR can actually circumvent potential CPU failures with almost no interruption to system operation. If a Pentium Pro chip appears to be in trouble, ActiveCPR will issue a user warning and initiate a safe auto-shutdown of the operating system. ActiveCPR will then take the questionable processor off-line and restart the OS. All without user intervention . In the event of a CPU fan failure, this technology can even protect your valuable Pentium Pro chips from expensive thermal damage.
To keep your data as reliable as your system, the Evolution Dual6 DT employs server class ECC (Error Checking and Correcting) memory technology. And with 8 SIMM sockets, it supports anywhere from 16-MB up to a massive 1-GB of system memory. That’s four times the capacity of most competitive systems.
The I/O subsystem mirrors this same flexibility. Four bus-mastering PCI slots let you take advantage of the latest “performance-based” PCI add-ons, while four ISA slots provide compatibility with your existing ISA boards. Two PCI Enhanced IDE interfaces are also integrated on to the system board, so you can control a combination of up to four hard drives or CD-ROM drives without having to purchase expensive additional controllers.
