Our new 1U server now shipping! 

1U Plus grandMA

Posted by Geoff Undrell on: in: News, Products

Back in December we announced that our new 1U rack server was available for orders. We’re pleased to announce that the “1U Plus” is now officially shipping and you can find it here.

To recap, this is our first step into Servers having established a strong heritage in Mini PC and Rack PC products over the last decade.  The 1U Plus is a feature-rich product that delivers great value.  Built from the ground up, we’ve focussed on some of the challenges we believe will be commonplace for our users and tackled them with intelligent design, flexible options and lots of scope for expandability.

Processor options vary from basic 1150 socket i5 to range topping 2011-3 socket i7 and Xeons.  However, the big differentiator is the 2 x PCI-express 16 slots which offer the capability to fit two PCIe x16 cards or a dual width graphics card.

The server range comes in three options:

Workstation – our entry level product, is perfect for everyday workloads and reliability

Industrial – for those with more demanding requirements and need for greater redundancy

Performance – a do-anything server for the most aggressive demands

All are built on a similar technical blueprint as follows however:

  • New X99 Chipset for 6 & 8 Core CPU support
  • Dual PCI express x16 slots for two PCIe cards or Dual Width GFX Cards
  • Two Front USB 3.0 Ports
  • Up to 8x Hot Swap 2.5” HDD and Solid State Drive as standard
  • M.2 Ultra-fast Solid State drive option
  • Sliding Rail Kit option

Detail on our Server family will shortly appear in the products section of our website.  In the meantime, for more information contact us.
