Computing for the Mobile Engineer by Desktop Engineering
While high-performance systems using the Intel Xeon processors have been around for about three years, the engineering on-the-go concept was coined by Eurocom, a maker of laptop systems for a variety of uses. Eurocom's Panther 3 highlights the server part of the solution, with a 6-core Xeon 5600 processor, up to 24GB of memory, and gigabit Ethernet, while the Neptune workstation includes up to 32GB of memory and an Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition processor.
"Engineering on the go represents the reality of many of today's professionals," says Mark Bialic, president of Eurocom. He notes that security was a primary justification for the concept. "Many of our customers on a distant project can't trust that they're protecting their intellectual property. They can't have that confidence using a local system or network."
