Kontron has extended its family of ultra quiet KISS industrial servers with a 4U version that has up to four 64-bit CPU cores. The new KISS 4U KT965 with an integrated embedded ATX motherboard comes with the Intel Q965 Express chipset and LGA 775 socket and offers Intel embedded and desktop performance up to the Intel Core2 Quad processor.
With its impressive 64-bit multicore performance and ultra quiet operation of less than 35 dB, the KT965 is not only suitable for data intensive applications such as those found in test and measurement or industrial and medical image processing, but is also the ideal server for control rooms and engineering offices.
Thanks to the multicore technology, the server offers the processing power to combine previously separate systems on a single platform. This not only saves hardware costs, but also increases system reliability. With Intel's virtualisation technology, the server enables resources to be used more efficiently and avoids multiplication effects for capacity reserves. As a high performance x86 system, it can also be used as a host system, thereby furthering the homogenisation of IT infrastructure.
The KT965 is based on the Intel Q965 chipset with up to 1066 MHz front side bus and the Intel ICH8 DO I/O controller hub. The Intel LGA 775 socket provides scalable processor performance from the Intel Core2 Duo E4300 Embedded and Intel Core2 Duo E6400 Embedded processors up to the Intel Core2 Quad Q6x00 processor. Performance is boosted even further by up to 8 GB of DDR2 Dual-Channel RAM.
One PCI Express x16 (PEG) and six PCI interfaces offer plenty of options for application specific expansions. In terms of standard data interfaces, the server offers two Gigabit Ethernet, 10 USB 2.0 ports (two on the front) and one COM. Data storage media are connected via six SATA 150/300 with onboard RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality and an ATA 100 interface. The integrated Intel GMA 3100 Graphics Media Accelerator supports resolutions of up to QXGA (2048 x 1536) via the VGA port. Interfaces for 7.1 HD-Audio and PS/2 ports for mouse and keyboard round off the list of interface features.
Three 5,25" and two 3,5" drive bays as well as a slim-bay slot; all of which are accessible from the front and are shock resistant mounted, offer plenty of room for hard drives and expansion modules, such as the optional Kontron KISS Stor hard drive subsystem with RAID 0/1/5 and hot swap functionality. A further 3,5" bay is available inside. With an MTBF of 50 000 hours - or approximately 5,7 years of continuous use - the extremely robust and shock resistant system ensures high availability and minimum maintenance. Moreover, the three temperature-controlled and ultra quiet fans are hot swappable for easier servicing.
The system comes with either a desktop housing or a housing for mounting in a 19 inch cabinet. The lockable front panel offers IP20 protection. Designed for continuous operation, the Kontron KISS systems are CE certified and UL suitable.
The server supports Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server and Vista and is available as standard systems or can be customised as needed and delivered as tested and independently certified solutions.
