New Kontron silent server designed for extended environmental conditions

ECHING, Germany, 26 June 2010. Kontron's first industrial server -- the Industrial Silent Server KISS 4U KTC5520 -- is a long-term available open standard platform, offering one or two dual Intel Xeon 5600 Series processors. The new system has as many as 12 processing cores designed with new 32 nanometer technology, which makes it a fit for virtualization functionality, allowing formerly separate applications to be moved onto a single, cost-effective system.

ECHING, Germany, 26 June 2010. Kontron's first industrial server -- the Industrial Silent Server KISS 4U KTC5520 -- is a long-term available open standard platform, offering one or two dual Intel Xeon 5600 Series processors. The new system has as many as 12 processing cores designed with new 32 nanometer technology, which makes it a fit for virtualization functionality, allowing formerly separate applications to be moved onto a single, cost-effective system.

The new Kontron device has an operating temperature range of 0 to 50 degrees Celsius, an operating humidity range of 10-95 percent, all-around IP 20 protection (optionally upgradeable to IP 52 at the front), and high shock and vibration protection. Standard applications for the rugged and silent embedded server include military, medical, and industrial imaging, high-end audio processing, storage, and simulation.

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 and virtual media by a single local computer from anywhere, at any time. IPMI 2.0 compliant using IPMI over LAN, the server board provides the operating system-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 on the front of the unit make for easy maintainability.

The Kontron Industrial Silent Server KISS 4U KTC5520 is CE certified and UL qualified. It 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.
