Manufacturer’s Description

The HP Print Server Appliance 4200 is a state-of-the-art device for managing and monitoring printing over a network. It is a network device that has been designed to provide a quick and easy way to add print capacity without affecting the general purpose server. It has several distinct advantages over conventional network printing configurations which can result in improved performance in both printing and file access. These advantages are discussed below. Installing printers on each client computer is required in order for clients to be able to print using the appliance. With the Microsoft Point and Print technology, printers are added to the appliance and associated with a factory-installed driver or a driver already added associated with a printer. Clients can be easily set up with access to that printer and its driver without having to install the driver again. In a typical network, general purpose servers manage both the printing tasks and the file/application serving. The appliance handles the spooling and network traffic associated with printing, reducing the workload on the general purpose server. When printing takes place at remote offices or other locations distant from the servers, the speed of printing can be degraded. A appliance installed in a remote office can dramatically increase printing performance by eliminating the need for print requests to travel from the remote office to the central site and back to a remote office printer. An additional benefit is that if general purpose file/application servers go down, remote office users can still print many jobs directly, using the appliance.
