San Diego, CA - I-Bus/Phoenix (IBP) introduces the nFUZION-4U family of platforms. The premier nFUZION line of application ready platforms (ARPs) meet the stringent space and environmental requirements of the network core, cable head end, telecom central office, wireless remote base station and densely packed data center. The nFUZION-4U family integrates seamlessly and efficiently into applications that typically only 8-10U enclosures could accomplish. They are ideal as stand alone high-availability single master systems or, more commonly, as highly available nodes in a fully redundant cluster system, complete with clustering middleware. Like all FUZION platforms, the 4U line is backed by IBP global sales, support, manufacturing and agency approvals.

"The 4U family of highly reliable, highly available application ready platforms represent I-Bus/Phoenix's commitment to offer both Sun and Intel platforms to our OEMs, VARs and Systems Integrators," said Johni Chan, IBP's VP of Engineering.

The nFUZION-4U/EP, nFUZION-4U/HP and nFUZION-4U/ES comprise IBP's 4U line of ARPs. Each features dual 300W Hot-swap, N+1 redundant AC or DC power supplies, an IBP designed and manufactured 4U, 6-Slot CompactPCI Enclosure for revision control, OEM/VAR branding, and optional 40GB DAT or RAID controller. Standard PICMG 2.0 R3.0 compliant peripherals, such as switches and network interfaces, are also available.

The nFUZION-4U/EP CompactPCI(R) Pentium® III NEBS Compliant Platform offers up to 5 hot-swap, SCA SCSI hard drives supporting RAID, thereby increasing data density and availability, an IBP Pentium III long life cycle Single Board Computer for maximum OEM project life, PICMIG 2.12 Compliant Hot-Swap middleware options and hardware RAID controller- options. Up to 4 peripherals, including the IBC 2602 peripheral master SBC, can be added for dense computing or I/O intensive applications.

The nFUZION 4U/HP CompactPCI Dual Pentium III NEBS Compliant Platform comes complete with an IBP Dual Pentium III long life cycle Single Board Computer, up to 4 hot-swap, SCA SCSI hard drives supporting RAID, and hardware RAID controller options for maximum flexibility. This platform also supports up to 4 pre-installed peripherals. The Sun UltraSparc NEBS Compliant nFUZION-4U/ES CompactPCI Platform comes standard with a Sun Microsystems CP 2060 UltraSpare IIe Netra Blade Single Board Computer for maximum computing power and Solaris 8 Operating System support for full hot-swap peripheral cards. Up to 5 additional CP 2060 or CP 2080 Netra blades are supported for compute intensive applications.

The nFUZION-4U application ready platforms are available now with standard 4 week delivery, after acceptance of order (AAO). The standard OEM quantity pricing of the nFUZION-4U platforms ranges from $6,295 to $8,995.
