Core Systems, the industry leader of rugged rackmount computers and displays, announced today their release of the rugged HPE Series by Core Systems. Based on the industry-leading DL server platform, the DL160RS, DL180RS, DL360RS, DL380RS and HC250RS are cost-effective and designed for the military to perform in the harshest of environments.
All of the HPE servers have been tested to perform at the MIL-STD 810G level. Below are some more details about the first two rugged servers in the Rugged HPE Series…
Core Systems DL160RS GEN9 Rugged Server
Based on Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) industry leading DL160 Server platform, the Core Systems DL160RS Gen9 Rugged Server is a cost effective, fully rugged compute platform designed to operate in today’s most stringent environments. The DL160RS has the latest HPE ProLiant and Intel® Chipset technology offerings, resulting in no compromises and optimal performance for the tactical user.
Offering standard Integrated Lights-Out capabilities for simplified IT infrastructure management, 16 slots for DDR4 memory, eight drives, and two standard NIC ports, the DL160RS Gen9 Rugged Server offers the ideal set of features for meeting your customer’s everyday rugged computing needs. The DL160RS Gen9 Rugged Server enables users to start small, and scale easily, as their tactical computing needs grow.
Faced with an evolving deployment base, DoD, Intel, and civilian customers require an agile IT infrastructure that scales readily and consumes minimal space and energy. To support today’s Data Centric Mega Trends—Big Data and cloud computing— tactical users need to optimize their rugged IT environments and move to a distributed computing model where rugged servers are deployed as converged network platforms.
With space and environmentally optimized physical characteristics, such as a 20” chassis depth, 92 percent efficient power supply, inherent support for higher temperatures, dense 1U design, and optional FlexibleLOM capability, the DL160RS Gen9 Rugged Server enables users to minimize the operational costs of energy and space—making it a perfect match for your tactical environment.
Core Systems DL180RS GEN9 Rugged Server
Based on the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) industry-leading ProLiant DL180 Server platform, the Core Systems DL180RS is a cost-effective, fully rugged compute platform designed to operate in harsh environments. The DL180RS utilizes the latest HPE ProLiant and Intel® Chipset technology offerings, setting the new standard in rugged computing performance.
With optimized physical characteristics and the reliable HPE server architecture and management you’ve come to know, the DL180RS Rugged Server provides the optimal platform for your workloads that require more onboard expansion while still minimizing the operational costs of energy and space regardless of where the mission calls you.
The DL180RS provides a ruggedized platform optimized for operations in austere environments, with up to 2 Intel Xeon® E5-2600 v3 and v4 processors, up to 12 cores, and 16 DIMM slots of DDR4 Smart Memory (up to 512GB).
The DL180RS 2U chassis provides up to 6 PCIe 3.0 riser slots for GPU and network cards as well as up to 16 SFF drives for expanded platform capabilities. Management is simplified with the Integrated Lights-Out out of band management module to deploy, monitor, and support your server remotely.
