RLX Technologies Announces First ServerBlade Priced Under $1,000

RLX Campaign to Redefine Server Economics Targets "Cost of Ownership" and "Acquisition Cost" Advantages Over Dell, Compaq Servers

HOUSTON, TX, August 8, 2001 - In a move that further enhances the competitive advantages of the RLX System 324TM Web server solution over conventional 1U servers from Dell and Compaq, RLX TechnologiesTM today announced price reductions from 16 to 31 percent.

"Since we began shipping the System 324 in May, RLX has ramped-up our manufacturing, service and support infrastructures to insure customer satisfaction as we handle higher volumes," said President and COO Mike Swavely. "Those efforts were setting the stage for today's announcement which compliments the System 324 cost of ownership advantages over rack dense 1U servers from Dell and Compaq with lower acquisition costs as well. "

The RLX System 324 Web server solution features the industry-leading, energy efficient RLX ServerBlade design, allowing customers to gain significant new advantages over conventional 1U servers:

  • 5X to 10X lower power consumption
  • 8X more servers in the same space
  • 6X lower operational costs
  • 4X the number of Web pages served per square foot of space

The RLX System 324 is becoming the Web server solution of choice for Internet Data Centers, Web hosting companies and Internet companies that are under increased pressure to reduce energy consumption, enhance space utilization and increase operations efficiencies. With 24 RLX ServerBlades in a single chassis and up to 336 servers in a single industry standard 42U rack, customers gain unprecedented energy savings and data center density, both of which are critical elements that are redefining the economics of today's server industry.

"RLX is the shape of servers to come," said Dwight Gibbs, CTO of The Motley Fool. "They allow us to minimize our cost per square foot of data center space. They're also extremely easy to set up and manage. The net effect is that we can provide better service to our customers at a lower cost. What more could a Fool want?"

Customers can now buy an RLX System 324 with six ServerBlades ($6,999) for 30 percent less than six comparable 1U DL320 servers from Compaq ($10,392)* and 3 percent less than six PE 350 servers from Dell ($7,218)**. A full chassis of 24 RLX ServerBlades is $26,511, which provides a 36 percent cost advantage over 24 DL32 servers from Compaq ($41,568)* and 8 percent less than 24 PE 350 servers from Dell ($28,872)**. The RLX price advantage grows as more servers are purchased.

Today's announcement includes the first RLX ServerBlade below $1000, a configuration that includes a 633 MHz processor, 128 MB of memory and a 10 GB disk drive priced at $999.
