Skylake-based RESmini meets commercial FAA requirements
ANDOVER, Mass. – March 19, 2018 – Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) today announced the RESmini XR6, its next-generation rugged mini server featuring the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable (Skylake) processors. The RESmini, part of Mercury’s EnterpriseSeries™ product line, comes bundled with a new FAA-compliant power case and can operate independently for two hours without a power source.
“We’ve been listening carefully to our customers who’ve consistently expressed the need for IT infrastructure more suitable for expeditionary operations,” said Michael Schneider, Vice President of Mercury’s Trusted Mission Solutions group (formerly Themis Computer). “The XR6 RESmini is a very small, environmentally resilient, enterprise-class server. When combined with the FAA compliant, RESmini Carry-On Power™ Case, operators can fly with the RESmini in a commercial aircraft’s overhead bin and operate it in virtually any power environment.”
XR6 RESmini Highlights
- A Data Center in a Briefcase: The XR6 RESmini delivers high performance in a reliable briefcase size package. The system embeds an Intel Xeon Scalable Processor with twenty-eight cores, and 240TB of storage in a lightweight, portable chassis that runs on either AC or DC power. Intel AVX-512, additional cores, a 50% increase in memory channels, and 20% more PCIe lanes accelerate workloads and maximize performance.
- Designed to be on the Move: Only 4″ (10.2cm) high, 13.5″ (34.3cm) wide, and 11″ (27.8cm) deep, the 15lb RESmini minimizes size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements. 10Gbe ports, expansion slots, multiple I/O, and eight swappable drives offer operators maximum configuration versatility for current and future operations.
- Operation in the Most Stringent Environments: The RESmini can operate in 0°C to +50°C temperatures, with greater temperature extremes available for special configurations. Advanced thermal and mechanical design features deliver superior resilience to shock, vibration, dust, sand, and temperature extremes. The system meets MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-901D, and MIL-STD-167-1 specifications.
For applications that require autonomous operation, the RESmini can be fully integrated within a FAA Carry-On Compliant UPS Power Case. Designed by Acumentrics, the system delivers versatile power in a rugged, lightweight, and portable case.
“The RESmini Carry-On Power Case System is designed to be completely autonomous and flexible,” said Steve Corbesero, Senior VP for Sales and Marketing at Acumentrics. “The system automatically adjusts to the AC power on hand and will even run on a 12/28 volt DC power source commonly found on an aircraft, military vehicle, or light commercial vehicle.”
RESmini Power Case Features:
- Designed for the field: The entire RESmini power case system weighs 47 lbs and features a 4″x11″x14″ internal electronic bay that can power the RESmini along with other small electronics. The Military standard waterproof casing is molded out of high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin that resists UV, solvent, corrosion, fungus, and impact damage. A patented trigger release latch system and an automatic ambient pressure equalization valve along with a lockable lid enhance security on the field.
- Dense embedded power: The power case provides over 100 minutes of autonomous run-time for typical operations and can be powered by both AC (100-240V, 47-400Hz) and DC (10-30V) power. This ensures operation across a multitude of global voltages and frequencies as well as inside a The case can also be powered by standard military batteries. Optional hot swappable battery packs that increase run time are available.
- Built-in Safety: The system is designed to meet UN-DOT 38.3 for FAA compliance. A fail-safe battery disconnect prevents battery drainage and ensures safety during transport. Wheels, retractable handles, and cushioned grips assure smooth transport for mission-critical operations on the move.
The new XR6 RESmini Carry-On Power Case System will be showcased next week at the AUSA Global Force Symposium, Booth 1200A, in Huntsville, Ala.
