Front access I/O 2U short depth rackmount computer is a reliable and consistent computation platform for virtually any application with a unique front accessible design.
Online PR News – 01-May-2011 – – Constructed of heavy duty steel for ruggedness and corrosion resistance, this 2U rackmount computer can withstand even the harshest environment conditions. It is specially designed to protect the equipment from damage during vibration and handling while have providing high performance in a low cost 2U rack mount enclosure.
The obvious advantage of a 2U rackmount computer over a tower-type desktop model is that these units are stackable, saving you a lot of space when the time comes to add computers to the server. One of the most important features this computer has is its short depth chassis. Being 17” deep, this particular server fits much easier into the more portable racks whereas other units would have difficulty. This typically means that this unique design has the advantage of added protection for hard drives; a feature not every rackmount computer is designed with.

This server supports 3 front accessible PCI-32 full-size (13" depth) expansion slots and 1 x slim-type 24X CD-ROM& 2 x 3.5" hidden drive bay. Depending what they are used for, the multi drive and multi slot features allows for higher performance and reliability.
The front bezel is placed with important functions, such as the On/Off switch and USB ports for easier access along with a full function I/O. These I/O features include:
6 x USB ports
1 x VGA port
1 x Aduio Line in/out, Mice
