VIA Releases Thin Server Board for Eco-Friendly Small Business Storage

VIA Technologies announced the VIA NAS 7800 board, specifically designed to meet the needs of thin server and NAS segment system builders.

Powered by a low-heat, energy-efficient 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor, with an optional fanless VIA Eden SKU, the VIA NAS 7800 board also features a proprietary MFX module for comprehensive wake-up scheduling, allowing IT managers to power servers down at nights or weekends for considerable savings on electricity usage.

The VIA NAS 7800 uses an original 19cm x 14.3cm form factor, same size as a standard optical disk drive, with I/O aligned to allow easy integration into standard drive-sized chassis or even in multiple configuration within a 1U server, offering an innovative approach to NAS systems for small and medium sized businesses.

Complete system security is assured through the onboard TPM module for key generation and storage and the VIA PadLock Security Engine integrated directly onto the processor die, which when enabled provides fast, military grade hardware encryption and decryption of data.

The VIA NAS 7800 is powered by a VIA C7 1.5 GHz processor with optional fanless VIA Eden-based skus available to project customers. Scalable storage needs are met with the support for up to eight S-ATA II ports with 1.5Gbits/sec and 3Gbits/sec data transfer rates, and for Native Command Queuing. Network support includes Gigabit Ethernet ports and an optional integrated IEEE-802.11g VIA wireless module.

Featuring the VIA CN700 chipset, the VIA NAS 7800 supports up to 1GB of DDR2 system memory, integrated VIA Unichrome Pro Integrated Graphics, an onboard IDE connector, a type-I Compact Flash slot, two COM ports and up to 6 USB 2.0 ports. The 19cm x 14.3 cm form factor matches that of a standard optical drive bay for easy deployment in standard disk drive chassis.

The VIA NAS 7800 features a TPM chip for software and content security. Security can be further augmented by enabling the VIA PadLock Security Engine, a hardware based security technology that provides the latest military-grade key encryption and protection with the world's fastest x86 security engine. A fully programmable MFX chip provides flexible system scheduling with wake-up, stand-by and event logging functions. A software WatchDog timer is included along with 5V/12V pins for an LCM/Keypad user interface and both GPIO and DI ports with SMI hardware interrupt functions.

The NAS 7800 has an operating temperature of 060C and supports Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/XPe, and Linux.

The complete specifications are here.

The board is currently sampling to system developers.
