Buying, deploying and managing distinct islands of storage increases storage hard ware
and management costs--something IT is trying to avoid in times of growing data volumes.
Portsmouth, N.H.-based wireless startup Exavera Technologies has rolled out its first product: a software and hard ware
platform using both Wi-Fi and RFID technologies.
Hardware reliability was so questionable that many cost- and quality-conscious accountants required computer retailers to bench-test hard ware
to be sure it was sound before they shipped it.
On-chip peripherals include 4 serial, ports, glueless memory and I/O inter face, remote cold boot, on-board slave port, 40 parallel I/O lines, 7 different timers, precision pulse generation hard ware
, and a battery backable time/date clock.
Holmes, manager of its Advanced General Aviation Transportation Experiment, or AGATE - an industry/government consortium that is creating the concepts, systems, and hard ware
to make this possible.
