The RES-XR5-1U rack mounted server is designed for rugged scalable deployment of server-virtualized workloads, including Virtual Desktop integration. With 512 GB of memory and up to 32 terabytes of SSD storage, over 100 virtual machines and virtual containers can be supported by one RES-XR5-1U system. This server can be easily added to a mobile data center to quickly grow compute and storage capacity. Coupled with the high availability features of virtualization software, multiple servers offer a fault resilient infrastructure able to survive power failure, disk failure and other infrastructure faults.

Themis RES servers are an attractive solution for programs where Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP), modular maintainability, and reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) are essential considerations.

“As companies transition to highly virtualized data centers, they deploy, and effectively use thousands of server (and/or desktop) application instances in a virtual environment. When combined with open source Linux virtualization, container virtualization, VMware EVO, Microsoft Server, and other Themis partner solutions, the RES-XR5-1U, 8-drive server provides a simple, elegant, and high-performance solution for scaling rugged data center applications.”
