Courtesy: KontronKontron's Wildcat 2U rugged rackmount is specifically designed specifically to meet the computing needs of exploration and operations in the oil & gas industry. Kontron's 19-in. rugged rackmount server is optimized for high mean time between failure (MTBF) and it meets high shock and vibration as well as extreme temperature and dust requirements demanded in oil & gas installations. These capabilities make the Kontron 2U Wildcat ideal for rapidly expanding applications including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), control room management, and oil production and drilling. 

The Kontron Wildcat 2U rackmount server offers extended temperature operation through efficient cooling. The robust design features a front-accessible dust filter as well as cable tie downs, hold-down brackets for expansion cards and memory and shock-mounted drive bays to ease transport. I/Os include 4x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0 and 3 x Gigabit Ethernet ports. The system can power up to three individual displays and supports HD audio. The Wildcat 2U has three removable hard drives (2.5-in. or 3.5-in.) as well as a slim DVD +/-RW drive.
