Houston, TX— Augmentix Corp. recently introduced a new line of mission-critical servers for applied computing applications that it says offer up to twice the performance of competing systems for as little as half the price.
Augmentix reports that is has enhanced commercial servers for greater environmental resilience, reliability, and ease of servicing by starting with systems that employ the latest processors, drives, and other components.
"We've engineered an innovative and cost-effective solution for applications that require a high level of robustness, reliability and serviceability, and for companies that want state-of-the-art technology that's been previously unavailable to applied computing markets," says Chris Melson, Augmentix's president and CEO. "This is what the market has been telling us is needed in today's value-conscious business climate."
Augmentix's initial NEBS- and ETSI-compliant server products, A+750 and A+1750 models, are based on Dell's PowerEdge 750 and PowerEdge 1750 servers. Both models are engineered to perform in demanding applications in communications, industrial automation, medical imaging, and the military. Initial customer shipments are slated for 3Q04.
In addition to the Augmentix A+ server line, the company also announced what it says is the industry's first hardware and software solutions for automated and unified management of heterogeneous server environments. The company's A+Server Availability Management Processor (A+SAMP) card is designed for sophisticated platform management of installations requiring high availability, lights-out management, or streamlined remote maintenance actions.
Likewise, Augmentix's A+HPI software is based on the Service Availability Forum Hardware Platform Interface (HPI) specification. A+HPI software enables cross-platform management of heterogeneous server environments from a single, consistent application interface.
A+SAMP and A+HPI are included in all Augmentix servers, and can also be used for managing Dell, HP, IBM and/or Intel systems, enabling out-of-band management access to these servers for reliable lights-out system availability management.
