Intel is rolling out a new storage platform through its channel partners designed for easy to use by small and midsize businesses.
The Intel Entry Storage System SS4200x is being distributed in two models: the Intel Entry Storage System SS4200-EHW, a hardware-only version, and the Intel Entry Storage System SS4200-E, which comes with integrated software.
Based on the Intel Celeron 400 Series Processor with DDR2 memory, the unit includes a customizable shell design and an external SATA (Serial ATA) port that allows for external storage expansion beyond its four hard disk drives. However, the disk drives are not included.
