First ever Rack Server arriving shortly!

Posted by Geoff Undrell on: in: Development Projects, News, Products

Having established an enviable reputation as one the UK’s best independent manufacturers of rack mount and mini PC’s, we have taken the decision to expand our product line-up to now include servers.

Our first 1U Server product is in development, the prototype of which, will shortly be available for us to share with interested customers. The decision to add servers to our portfolio, like many of innovations and product developments, has been spurred on by customer request.

The 1U Server is a small, quiet, easy to manage multi-use server appliance.  Our thinking behind the product is to make an appliance equally at home as the host for performance-critical applications that demand more resilience and headroom than is achievable from a rack mount PC, whilst offering flexibility and value for money to host less demanding workloads.

Inside the box

The appliance is built on industrialised componentry and shaped by our user friendly design.

Specifically, the server will come with two PCIe slots accommodating full height and full length PCIe cards, making it capable of serving applications such as 3D graphics, video encoding or networking.

Up to 8 x 2.5″ hot swappable drive bays makes changing failed or upgrading hard-drives a breeze, without the need to power the machine down.  Likewise, a completely new chassis design that includes a quick remove lid makes access to the appliance straightforward, further gearing the server towards ease-of-use and service simplicity.

Similarly, as more features continue to move from the motherboard to the processor we’ve also been able to develop the server with support for Micro-ATX server motherboards.  Using these boards inside the case has the potential for a simpler, cooler running and easier to manage system.

Anyone interested in knowing more about the 1U Server or keen to see the prototype should contact us now.
