NextComputing Unveils Newest High-Performance Rugged Mobile Workstation, Vigor Evo Plus
Posted by Chris Donaher, Thursday October 14 2010 @ 01:52PM EDT

NASHUA, N.H. – October 14, 2010 – NextComputing, a leading manufacturer of high-performance portable and small form-factor workstations and servers, announces the Vigor Evo Plus. The latest in the company’s line of rugged mobile computers is designed to support high-end software applications in deployed environments.

Created for military and homeland security operations, these customers can now run mission-critical applications on a “stand-alone,” transportable workstation/server platform, optimized for size, weight, and power (SWaP). Even with up to three built-in HD monitors, the Vigor Evo Plus is still less than half the size and weight of an equivalent performance rackmount or tower system, while consuming significantly less power.

The Vigor Evo Plus expands upon previous generation rugged systems in two important areas: internal hard drive storage capacity and PCI expansion slots. In order to meet the requirements of key customers in the defense sector, NextComputing extended the existing Vigor Evo chassis and increased the number of PCI expansion slots to accommodate more drives and open-standards PCI Express and PCI-X cards. The result is a system that can support an even wider range of applications that require high-capacity, high-speed storage, multiple PCI cards such as RAID controllers or data capture cards, or both storage and PCI expansion.

Vigor Evo Plus technical highlights include:

• Rugged mil-anodized external chassis and shock-mounted internal chassis

• 1 or 2 energy-efficient, server-class Intel® Xeon® processors

• Up to 16GB ECC RAM

• Workstation and Enterprise Linux support

• Internal storage capacity nearing 11TB (terabytes)

• Up to six (6) full-length, full-height PCI Express and PCI-X slots

• Integrated 17-inch HD display

• Optional 2nd and 3rd “swing-out” displays for panoramic viewing

• Screen-less versions available – ideal for embedded applications such as vehicle mounted servers

• System weight starting at 35 lbs.

“Our Vigor series rugged portable workstations and servers have been known in the industry for their top-end performance and flexible, modular design approach which allows the systems to be extremely versatile, while remaining small, lightweight, and efficient,” says Bob Labadini, President & CTO of NextComputing. “Our unique FleXtreme architecture allows us to adapt our products quickly to changing market needs. The Vigor Evo Plus is a perfect example of this engineering philosophy, and was designed to satisfy the compute-intensive requirements of today’s C4ISR programs.”
