HP SureStore CD-ROM Server/Tower - Features and Benefits

Feature
Benefit(s)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Complete Solution for the Task
The HP CD-ROM server/tower can be installed on the network in minutes, versus hours for other solutions (such as towers attached to file servers).
File Server Independence
The server is preinstalled with all the network functionality required. It does not rely on intermediate communications with a file server.
Ease of Use
HP CD-ROM server/towers are designed to be easy to install and use.
Software on disks or tapes is not needed to install the server. The server uses standard networking protocols (HTTP, NCP, SMB, and NFS), so there is no need to learn any special software to access it.
You can find your data by mapping individual CD-ROM drives or the entire server (with a subdirectory for each CD) to be a logical network drive, or by using your browser to access the built-in web server.
Location Flexibility
As a network node, the HP CD-ROM server/tower can be located anywhere on the network, such as in the workgroup where users can update new CD content as it arrives. It can be rack or floor mounted.
Up-to-Date Data
You are assured that you are using a correct set of data because a common set of CDs are being shared.
Broad Compatibility and Flexibility Now and Later
As a multi-protocol device, the server/tower simultaneously supports various network operating environments, including Novell NetWare, Microsoft (R) and IBM network operating systems (Windows 95/98, Windows NT, and OS/2), UNIX (R), and Internet/intranets. Or it can function with only one protocol enabled. New network operating systems are supportable by downloading new firmware to Flash memory.
The backplane allows easy installation of CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives or CD changers. It automatically assigns SCSI Ids to HP drives. SCSI-2 drives from vendors others than HP are easily adapted to the HP CD-ROM server/tower.
A server/tower with 7 drives preinstalled is available. Or a server/tower without drives preinstalled can be loaded with one or more drives, and more drives can be added when needed. Or the HP Server/Tower 7Plus with its 7 preinstalled drives can be extended to up to 14 drives when needed. Either a 10Base-T or a 100Base-TX network can be connected.
Web Server Functionality
You can access CDs using a web browser, such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer, and network managers can configure and manage the server using a web browser.
Security
Setting up password protection can restrict CD access. (License agreements can restrict the number of users of any CD.) Or, user access can be administered using the network operating system’s authentication provisions, such as Novell’s NDS (NetWare Directory Services) and Microsoft’s Windows NT 4.0 domains.
Speed
These server/towers take advantage of 100-Mbit/s networks. The 32-bit processor and cache memory allow ample throughput for demanding CD-ROM applications. HP’s CD-ROM drives seek data quickly
Upgradeability
New firmware can be easily downloaded to the server’s Flash memory over the network.
Remote Management with Web JetAdmin and Others
Hewlett-Packard’s Web JetAdmin automatically locates and checks the health of multiple CD-ROM servers from a single console. Other leading management applications that support the Simple Network Management Protocol, SNMP, can also manage the HP CD-ROM server/towers.
