Toshiba cuts cord on wireless server

Toshiba Corp. introduced a new wireless server for small and medium-sized businesses this week, saying it offers full network capabilities with a reduced need for IT support.

The Magnia SG30 Wireless Mobility Server, introduced Wednesday, offers 802.11b wireless networking, allowing users to share files, access the Internet and configure a firewall and a virtual private network (VPN). It also offers content filtering, backup capabilities, e-mail services and remote administration, according to Toshiba.

But the product's main selling point is it wireless features. The server comes with three PC Card slots that can house wireless LAN PC Cards, a built-in wireless access point and support for the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) 802.11b wireless standard, Toshiba said.

The server offers up to 160G bytes of storage capacity and 256M bytes of memory, and comes with a 1.2GHz Celeron processor from Intel Corp. Aimed at smaller companies and remote offices, the Magnia SG30 is roughly the size of a Toshiba laptop and priced starting at US$1499, the company said. No information on an Australian release was available at press time.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
