VIA Introduces Energy-Efficient 16TB Server

Electronics companies that produce quality products and can claim energy-efficiency have a serious advantage these days, and VIA Technologies knows it. Yesterday, the company announced the release of the NSR7800 2U rackmount server. The network storage device is powered by a 1.5GHz C7 processor, and supports up to a gigabyte of DDR2 system memory. VIA’s server also contains eight 3.5″ S-ATA II hard drive bays as well as dual-gigabit LAN. So where does the power efficiency come in?

VIA claims that its server consumes 50 percent less power than rival products and “generates far less heat (requiring less energy for elaborate cooling systems) and offers unrivaled stability over extended periods of uninterrupted usage.” I’ll be interested to see how the server’s “unrivaled stability” pans out in a real-world setting.

The VIA NSR7800 is available now for $599, hard drives not included.
