U.S. Navy shipboard electronics experts needed computer rugged servers for a variety of shipboard computing tasks. They found their solution at Themis Computer in Fremont, Calif.
Officials of the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington announced a $1.6 million contract for four Themis RES-XR5 1U standard-density, rack-mounted servers; shock-mounting kits; cabling; optical transceivers; Gigabit Ethernet switches; disk-on-module data storage; and ancillary items.
The Navy awarded the contract to Strictly Technology LLC, otherwise known as StrictlyTech, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., which is an authorized reseller of Themis items. Naval Sea Systems Command is in place to design, build, deliver, and maintain ships and shipboard systems for the U.S. Navy.
The Themis RES-XR5 standard- density, rack-mounted servers are available in 1U, 2U, and 3U RIO and FIO form factors, and have E5-2600 v3/v4 series Intel Xeon processors with as many as 20 cores per socket, as much as 1 terabyte of DDR4 ECC memory.
These cloud-ready rugged servers are designed to operate in high shock and vibration, as well as in temperature extremes. They can be mounted in standard commercial racks or mobile rugged transit cases for military, industrial, or rugged commercial applications.
