The Tornado F7 Server Edition is an all-in-one, single-server, small form factor, laptop-based server from Eurocom that is designed for rapid, on-the-go deployment. This Mobile Server has its own internal UPS/battery pack and is ready to go right out-of-the box, providing on-the-go capabilities for fast deployment and high mobility of server capabilities.
At 4 kg (9 lbs.), the Tornado F7 is ideal for fast setup and relocation of server environments, according to the company.
Eurocom’ s Server-on-the-Go technology goes beyond the deployment capabilities of rack-mounted/tower/blade servers.
On-the-Go Server vSphere-ready
Eurocom Tornado 7 supports VMware vSphere (ESXi) along with a variety of other Operating Systems such as Microsoft Server 2016, Microsoft Server 2016 Data Center Edition, Windows 10 and Linux/Ubuntu.
It has 128 GB of DDR4 memory and up to 22TB of total storage space. It is also equipped with Intel Xeon server-class 8 cores/16 threads CPU.
Being a lightweight form factor (weighing only 4 kg/9 lbs), the Tornado F7 allows for relocation and deployment of ad hoc network capabilities. It can be hand carried between locations.
The system is ready-to-go right out of the box and can be used in IT migration projects where the secure and fast transfer/migration of critical data and other VM’s is important. For these types of projects, minimizing downtime and operational interruptions is crucial and Server-on-the-Go technology provides the easy and uninterrupted migration of multiple VM’s to replacement platforms. It can also be used to set up ad-hoc installations on-the-fly, or as required, without the need to set up a permanent network infrastructure. This is a great tool for start-ups and other businesses that need a flexible-yet-secure network infrastructure.
The EUROCOM Tornado F7 is a lightweight form factor system that can be deployed virtually anywhere. The Tornado F7 Server Edition is designed to be ready-to-go out of the box as it comes preloaded with the customer’s specified operating systems and applications. The Tornado F7 SE has an all-in-one design with its integrated LCD, keyboard and built-in UPS battery making it lightweight and portable. Consuming only 230 watts of energy, the Tornado F7 has low power usage and is very energy efficient.
