A small Utah-based company has developed a portable Linux server that can be plugged into the USB (Universal Serial Bus) port of a Windows PCs.

Unveiled at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo here this week, Realm Systems' BlackDog server may appear at first glance to be a geek fetish item, but the Sandy, Utah, company says it will ultimately have serious corporate uses.

The 1.6 ounce server is powered by the USB connection and does not require any special software to work on the PC. BlackDog is treated as a CD-ROM by the host PC and is booted automatically when plugged in. Once booted it can access any of its host's peripherals or network resources. The product works with PCs that are running Linux, Windows 2000, or Windows XP, Realm says.

BlackDog also has a built-in fingerprint reader, so that it can be set up to work only for authorized users. And that biometric reader is key to the corporate uses the company envisions for its product.
