Hybrid Servers Announces the Hybrid Web Server
Hybrid Servers announced that its Hybrid Web Server is now available.
According to the company, the Hybrid Web Server provides cross-platform
Web replication for emergency purposes. During an emergency, such
as unscheduled downtime due to a virus attack or rogue application,
the Hybrid Web Server can be activated to assume much of the duties
of the primary Web server. The Hybrid Web Server can be used as
a replacement OS after a company rolls out its latest-technology
computers and can be installed on the systems that were replaced.
It is a basic Linux distribution with only a few services running.
The Basic version handles mostly static Web pages and is suited
for information-only sites. The Advanced version can replicate dynamic
Web sites, including those with query strings and database back-ends.
The Multi-server version can replicate up to ten sites, and any
of the ten can be activated in an emergency. All versions include
a basic Linux distribution and the Apache Web server, customized
with additional software to replicate and re-serve. All are priced
under $300, and come with 30 days of support.

DCB Announces New Broadcast Polling FRAD
Data Comm for Business, Inc. (DCB), announced release of their
modified Broadcast Polling FRAD (Frame Relay Access Device), model
BPF-BU. According to the company, two remote terminal unit (RTU)
ports are bolstered by a dedicated, leased-line backup port and
a dial-up backup port to provide dual-redundant security.
The BPF-BU operates by receiving continuous data from the remote
unit, or keep-alive packets from the host. If either the data or
"keep alive" signal stops for 60 seconds, the remote BPF-BU
begins the backup process. The BPF-BU first attempts a connection
through the leased line port. If the leased line port does not receive
a request to send (RTS) assertion, the BPF-BU resorts to the dial-up
modem port. The BPF-BU will continue to cycle through the backup
choices until a connection is made. As soon as "keep alive"
or user data is received through the frame relay link, the backup
link is dropped and the frame relay link is automatically restored
