HIAWATHA, Iowa, 9 June 2016. Crystal Group Inc. in Hiawatha, Iowa, is introducing the RS4104 and RS4198L24 high-performance and configurable rugged servers for use in harsh-environment applications that require storage, removal, and instantaneous processing of critical data.

Crystal Group has designed these units to accept GP/GPU engines such as the Xeon Phi, AMD FirePro, or the nVidia Tesla to make these devices for data-intensive applications including digital signal processing (DSP), intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), radar signal processing, training, and oil & gas exploration.

These machines are rack mounted servers designed to have dual Intel Haswell or Broadwell E5 Xeon processors paired with coprocessors like the Xeon PHI or nVidia's Tesla products fast compute processing.

The RS4104 and RS4198L24 are driven by Intel Haswell or Broadwell E5-2600 V3 or V4 processors and can be configured with as much as 1.5 terabytes Registered DDR4 of memory.

The RS4104 also supports as many as 10 PCI Express 3.0 x8 or 5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 expansion slots for add-in cards and is powered by a 1780-Watt power supply. The unit is 20 inches deep, 17.5 inches wide, and fits onto an EIA-310 rack.

The RS4198L24 supports as many as 10 PCI Express 3.0 x16 expansion slots (8 of which can support double width cards) for add-in cards and is powered by 3200-Watt 2+2 power supplies. The unit is 24 inches deep, 17.5 inches wide, and fits onto an EIA-310 mounted with Crystal Glides.

The RS4104 and RS4198L24 4U are compatible with industry standard operating systems such as Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, VMware and Linux operating systems.
