If the other all-in-one small-business appliance servers in this roundup are
Swiss Army knives, then the Sun Cobalt RaQ XTR is a stiletto. Marketed as a
heavy-duty Web and e-mail server designed primarily for the ISP and Web-hosting
markets, the Intel-based XTR is a good choice for medium-size or larger
companies wishing to develop and host their own e-mail, Web, and e-commerce
Like the UVNetworks WebBox 1000, it lacks the file- and printer-sharing
features of the general-purpose appliance servers in our roundup. As such, it
has no real place in the smallest offices, unless they have or anticipate large
e-mail and Web server needs.
What differentiates the RaQ from the UVNetworks WebBox, its closest
competitor in this roundup, is that the RaQ ships with a complete software
development environment, including GNU C++, Sun's Java Development Kit, several
scripting languages, and several Unix text editors—which makes the device ideal
if you have Web developers on staff who can use these applications.
The RaQ is housed in a 1U rack-mount chassis with a clever drop-down front
panel that contains a backlit LCD and a set of buttons used for setting the IP
address and for status monitoring. Also hiding behind the panel are the RaQ's
four removable hard drives. These drives can be arranged in a RAID 0, 1, or 5
configuration, offering good storage and redundancy.
Installation can be handled through the RaQ's browser interface, which is
surprisingly simple and easy to learn. It provides three levels of control:
User, Site, and System. It makes extensive use of color-coded icons and includes
extensive roll-over help buttons.
The System interface is the top-level management interface, and it gives full
access to overall system management settings. The Site level lets the
administrator delegate control of individual Web sites to individual users.
Employees can access, view, and change their e-mail settings through the User
level, a nice feature that removes this burden from the administrator.
The Apache-based Web server includes FrontPage extensions and allows multiple
Web sites to be hosted on a single RaQ. The e-mail server provides SMTP for
outbound mail and POP3 and IMAP4 for inbound mail, but there's no Web-based mail
server, as in most of the other products in our roundup.
