New Levels of Server Ruggedness

Arthur Cole

Most of us are used to our servers humming away in the cool, clean data center. But what if you need computing power in an environment that's not so clean?


Augmentix has introduced the latest in its line of rugged servers designed for use out on the edge, literally. The A+R200 is an ultra-dense 1U device outfitted with either Intel Dual-Core Xeon 3000s or Quad-Core Xeon 3200s. It also features 1.5 TB of shock-mounted SAS or SATA storage drives, a 1333 MHz front side bus and embedded ATI ES3000 video.


The unit boasts an operating temperature of -4 to 140 degrees F and can operate at an altitude of 15,000 feet. It features a heavy-duty corrosion-resistant external steel chassis with internal structural support that meets military integrity standards.


It also features Augmentix's A+SAMP management processor, an intelligent, self-contained embedded computer that provides automated system monitoring and secure Web-based remote reporting and recovery.

Check out Nortech's mobile supercomputer for a high-end example of "compute anywhere" servers. Not quite as extreme (atmosphere?) but amazing compute power to take on the road. Reply
