That Gray Server Looks Great- Said Nobody Ever

Ever wonder why every single hardware vendor uses gray? I mean, it doesn't provide inspiration or greatness and it doesn't scream “innovation.” It just sits there, does its job from 8-5 every day and never ruffles any feathers.   Color specialist Leatrice Eiseman says colors directly correlate to behavior in nature.  "Gray inspires people to be passive, uninvolved and have a lack of energy".

Yesterday, Fonality announced the release of the next generation trixbox Pro Appliance by RochBochs It is the first server to be certified by Fonality engineers on the latest business communication solution, trixbox Pro with an upgrade to CentOS 6.3. This 2U rack-mount server comes in two versions: 4 GB unit with an Intel 2.6 Ghz dual-core processors, and a 6 GB version with an Intel Xenon 3.0 Ghz quad-core processor (read more about the speeds and feeds). It’s also custom built to support the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses.  

This new appliance expands the list of certified hardware available to RochbochsFonality partner community. And it’s green.  According to the psychological effects, “The color green is restful for eyes and produces the least amount of eyestrain. Green also reduces anxiety and is associated with money,” states Eiseman.  Some of you may remember the first edition of the trixbox appliance, aka, the Green Machine.  Well, Fonality has brought the unique, quirky, appliance back, adding the value of global leaders Sangoma and RochBochs to the mix.  

If you’re a  network admin or IT guru, your daily work life is filled with gray--gray computers, servers, wires, phones, etc.  It is time to break from tradition and provide inspiration through color.  So break out of the mundane check out www.trixbox.com to learn more about the new green appliance that adds some color to your life, your business phone system, and data center racks.
