For Immediate Release
Supercomputer Sheds Weight, Gains Mobility, Becomes 'Server-on-the-Go. Launching 8.4lbs Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition with 10 cores/20 threads CPU, up to 26TB of storage and 128GB of memory.
The Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition is the newest, all-in-one, laptop based mobile server platform from Eurocom for “Server on-the Go” deployment. Powered by Intel Z590 chipset, this mobile server weighs 8.4lbs, making it much easier to move around compared to heavier, traditional tower and rack-mounted servers.
A lightweight, laptop form factor design allows the Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition to be deployed virtually anywhere and can run multiple VM’s smoothly despite being on-the-go, and/or in a temporary location.
The Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition is “Ready-to-Go” right out of the box when preloaded and reconfigured with proper server-class operating system(s) and applications.
The Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition has an all-in-one design complete with integrated display, keyboard and built-in battery/ UPS making it very portable and easy to move around. Consuming under 330 Watts, the Sky Z7 R2 has low power usage and is very energy efficient.
CPU Technology & Chipset:
Using Intel’s high performance Z590 chipset allows the Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition to support a variety of LGA1200 socket based Intel processors with 10core 20threads. Sky Z7 R2 Mobile Server also supports a line of LGA1200 based i7 and i9 processors that are currently available with 8cores and 16threads. The standard LGA 1200 CPU socket technology allows for the Sky Z7 R2 to be upgraded as newer CPU’s come out, giving the Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition scalability into the future. The CPU consumes up to 125 watts of power, making this mobile server form factor a very energy efficient alternative to traditional tower and/or rack-mounted servers.
The Sky Z7 R2 supports up to 128 GB of DDR4 RAM. It is capable of running multiple VM environments simultaneously using up to 4 x SODIMM sockets of 260-pin, DDR4 memory modules. These modules are low power, running at 1.2 Volts of energy per module, further adding to the Sky Z7 R2 high energy efficiency.
The Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition supports 4 physical M.2 NVMe drives, providing up to 26TB of storage. The four drives can be configured in multiple RAID options depending on user requirements. The RAID 0/1/5 options are available for NVMe SSDs.
The Sky Z7 R2 Mobile Server comes with an integrated Killer E3000 LAN chipset running at 2.5 GbE with a standard RJ-45 port. This LAN port is ergonomically located at the back of the machine, away from other ports, to reduce disruptions from other ports/wires and allows for non-stop network connectivity. Additional LAN ports are available via Thunderbolt 3.0 docking station.
Designed to be “Ready-to-Go” out of the box, the Sky Z7 R2 comes preloaded from a choice of operating systems including Microsoft Server 2022, MS Server 2019 and Linux, just to name a few, depending on the client’s specifications. This makes it very easy for IT professionals to deploy virtual and non-virtual environments at a reduced timeframe compared to traditional tower and rack-mounted servers.
The Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition comes with an internal Smart Li-Ion battery that functions as a built in UPS, giving it about 2 hours of uninterrupted power, allowing for proper shutdown in the event of a power failure.
In order to run cool and to keep internal temperatures low in the Sky Z7 R2, Eurocom uses an external power supply to generate less heat compared to traditional rack mounted servers with internal power supplies built-in. By removing the internal power supply, Eurocom has provided longer lasting server hardware infrastructure by reducing the risk of potential overheating.
Adding to its already impressive thermal output, the Sky Z7 R2 has 2 fans embedded along with 3 total heat sinks to maintain an even heat dissipation and keep overall heat production and energy use low. Large vents are strategically placed in the back of the machine to give this Mobile Server form factor not only more of a sleek and stylish look, but also adds great functionality as it allows for more heat ventilation.
There are also internal thermal sensors monitoring internal temperatures in an ongoing basis.
Security and Protection of Intellectual Assets:
Eurocom offers a complete suite of security in its Sky Z7 R2 Server Edition including a TPM 2.0 Encryption, Fingerprint Scanner, BIOS Disk Encryption and Kensington Security slot to allow customer to protect and secure their data and/or intellectual assets.
Eurocom also offers an optional, “anti-hacking protection suite,” consisting of the removal of webcam, microphone and WLAN. This allows for protection of intellectual assets and further defends against malware, tampering and theft of digital assets, data and other intellectual properties.
Who Needs Mobile Servers?
Network administrators and other IT professionals benefit greatly from utilizing the Sky Z7 R2 within their server environment because like most Eurocom systems, the Sky Z7 R2 can be preconfigured even before it is shipped to the client. Local Network Manager simply has to plug in the Mobile Server at the client site and the server/VM is deployed immediately with little to no downtime. Whether it is for disaster prevention/recovery, redundancy, server or VM migration, the Sky Z7 R2 is perfect for IT Managers who are looking to innovate their IT infrastructure, reduce bottlenecks and ultimately move away from the limitations of a traditional tower or rack-mounted server.
Major industries such as Aerospace, Military, Emergency Response firms, database developers, and many more Engineers and IT professionals requiring urgent server capabilities is the target demographic for the Sky Z7 R2. However, start-ups and other small to medium-sized businesses can also benefit from Eurocom mobile servers as it allows them to set up data centers and/or VM environments in temporary locations where the luxury of extensive wiring is not accessible or present. Professionals working with and running multiple VM’s within their infrastructure can also take advantage of the Sky Z7 R2 capabilities in order to seamlessly run, test and modify many different applications and VM’s simultaneously.
