WESTERVILLE, Ohio, 9 Dec. 2010. Tracewell Systems in Westerville, Ohio, is introducing the mil-specRugged Blade Server (RBS) for forward-deployed aerospace and defense applications. Based on IBM commercial blade server technology, the Tracewell RBS is packaged to meet military requirements for consistent performance, resistance to the effects of shock and vibration, and easy upgrades.

The RBS rugged computer can house a mix of blade servers in one chassis, and enables several different operating systems to run on one platform. Blades can be swapped on-the-fly as technology platform requirements evolve. "Tracewell is bringing critical hardware platforms from the back office to forward deployed environments," says Matt Tracewell, executive vice president of Tracewell Systems. "Users of the Rugged Blade System can have high performance computing, ruggedized and ready for immediate deployment."

Evaluations earlier this year at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., demonstrated that the RBS can perform in harsh environments, and offer a solution to the U.S. Department of Defense's need for ruggedized and configurable data centers. The evaluation exercises were led by the Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Atlantic (SSC-LANT), Tracewell officials say.
