Industrial Server brings Dual Xeon to Extended Environmental Conditions
Page 1 of 1
With up to 12 processing cores designed with new 32 nm technology, a new industrial server offers high performance density that makes it a fit for virtualization functionality, allowing formerly separate apps to be moved onto a single, cost-effective system. The Industrial Silent Server KISS 4U KTC5520 from Kontron is a highly robust and long-term available open standard platform, offering up to dual Intel Xeon 5600 Series processors. A feature of the Industrial Silent Server is its ability to operate in harsh environmental conditions. It features an operating temperature range of 0° to 50°C, an operating humidity range of 10-95%, all-around IP 20 protection (optionally upgradeable to IP 52 at the front), and high shock and vibration protection, which makes the server perfect for applications where more ruggedized systems are necessary.
The server board can be fully managed remotely, which contributes to high system availability and convenient service. The integrated management processor (IMP) offers VGA/2D, BMC and KVM/VM over IP (iKVM) to support real-time access with full control by keyboard, video monitor and mouse (KVM) and virtual media (VM) by a single local computer from anywhere. IPMI 2.0 compliant using IPMI over LAN, the server board provides the OS-independent and cross-platform interface for monitoring the server system’s temperature, voltage and fan status, among other items, and permits out-of-band management even when the main processors are not powered-on. Additionally, three hot-swappable chassis fans are mounted on the front of the unit.
The Industrial Silent Server is available with up to two Intel Xeon (5500 or 5600) series processors and up to 48 Gbyte DDR3 ECC registered SDRAM per processor. The server paves the way for a wide range of extensions, thanks to 1x PCI Express x16 (PEG) (configurable as 1x PCI Express x8), 3 PCIe 2.0 x8, 1 PCIe x4 (using x8 slot) and 1 x PCI. Additionally, there are 2 x Gigabit Ethernet, 6 x USB 2.0 (2 on the front) and 1 x COM (RS232). The Kontron Industrial Silent Server supports Red Hat Linux and Windows Server 2008 and is available direct from the warehouse as a standard configurable system or can be customized further as needed and delivered as a fully tested and independently certified solution.
