Kontron AG introduced a storage and networking server that the company said is a multifunction 3U NEBS-compliant platform for mission critical streaming media, lawful interception and security/data storage applications. The Kontron FS3100 flaunts its I/O capacity, storage adaptability, network port density and processor performance in a 20in platform targeting the needs of telecommunication companies.

The device claims to solve many design and time-to-market issues for TEMs who need to deploy applications in space constraint networks. Designing applications on a Kontron FS3100instead of multiple specialized serversdramatically accelerates design cycles and reduces the overall cost of ownership, noted the company.

The storage and networking server is designed to be telco-ready from the ground up, and provides functionalities needed to capture, process and analyze massive amounts of data across telecommunications and carrier cloud computing environments. Other applications include content insertion, analysis and storage for network optimization and localized ad-distribution in streaming media.

The FS3100 is designed to support dual socket six-core Intel Xeon Processors 5600 series, Intel 5520 chipset and 12 x RDIMM/UDIMM memory slots (DDR3-800/1066/1333) for up to 96GB memory. It also offers customers reduced system count and energy consumption.

The storage and networking server boasts extensive IO connectivity that supports multiple PCI E slots enables the full performance of pre- and co-processing adapters and multiple 10GbE, InfiniBand and other network interfaces. As such, it can fit into any network centric environments and provide improved transfer rates with minimal implementation effort and cost, Kontron stated.

The device feature multiple storage options including rotational and high performance SSD drives using 6Gb/s interfaces and a range of integrated and 3rd party SW/HW RAID options for fine tuning to optimize safety and transfer rates. In addition, it flaunts advanced system monitoring with remote management interfaces.

The Kontron storage and networking server FS3100 is available for purchase.
