||The Apricot FT2400 is Mitsubishi
Electric's latest mid-range server. It's powerful and highly expandable with a build
quality second to none. But then, with Mitsubishi's tradition of high quality Apricot
servers, you'd expect that. The FT2400 now adds comprehensive server management facilities
to build a server which doesn't compromise on features, price or performance.
If you're looking for Pentium® II processors, Ultra-Wide SCSI, high
performance disks, RAID subsystems and resilient Hot Swap PSUs for real data integrity,
then look no further than the Apricot FT2400. The Apricot FT2400 delivers enterprise
system attributes in a mid-range server.
Highly Expandable Chassis
Like our ground-breaking Shogun and FT4200 Enterprise servers, the FT2400 has a chassis
which gives you all the expansion capability that you need. As a minimum, there are 5
hot-plug drive bays which can be expanded to a total of 10, all easily accessible for
drive upgrades. There are 5 free PCI slots thanks to the integrated motherboard design.
The PSU is a generous 600 Watt unit, with up to three modules to provide resilience and
enough power for a fully-loaded system.
The FT2400 is designed as both a floor-standing unit and to be installed in a 19"
rack-mount for installation in a data centre environment.
Your data is valuable. Use the FT2400's no-compromise features to protect it. For the
disks, the optional RAID controller gives high-performance hardware RAID with full support
for hot standby drives.
The FT2400 Power Supply can have up to 3 modules, giving
full protection against any single module failing even on a fully loaded system.
And to make doubly sure of your data, choose the external
APC UPS, which adds battery backup and mains conditioning to the data integrity features.
No matter how good your server is, you need to be in control. The FT2400 has full server
management provided by Mitsubishi SMA+, which combines innovative hardware and software
for a complete solution.
|Use Mitsubishi SMA+ to monitor
the FT2400's environmental status, interrogate the DMI compliant BIOS, launch the RAID
manager, or even monitor the HDD backplane! And, because Mitsubishi Electric innovate
within the industry standards, all this integrates with Intel's LANDesk management suite.
The use of industry standards means that the server management is compatible with DMI and
SNMP compliant tools.
The lockable front and side panels ensure that only authorised access is permitted,
protecting the exchangeable and fixed disks plus the power on/off switch. The locks are
also connected to the server management system, so that any intrusion is detected.
Computers for a Connected World
The Apricot FT series is designed for a connected world. Multiple connectivity options
ensure that the business advantages of Internet, Intranet and Extranet technologies can be
fully exploited, allowing greater productivity and communications regardless of the size
of your organisation. With integrated ethernet, high-speed modem and ISDN options all
optimised to give simple, but effective connectivity to your local area network, or even
further afield to the World Wide Web, the electronic network that spans the globe.
