Kontron: Embedded Cloud servers as evaluation platforms

Kontron introduces Embedded Servers at the SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nuremberg. They play a central role in the company's Embedded Cloud concept introduced earlier this year. These fully functional, scalable systems serve as project evaluation platforms and will premiere in front of customers and partners at the Kontron booth. A "Cube" Embedded Server with a Single Socket Intel Xeon processor specifically adapted for the Embedded Cloud will be on display as a functional model and example for a compact, cost-optimized design type in IT environments. As an ideal base for industrial Embedded Cloud Servers, scalable COM Express Type 7 modules with Intel Xeon and Intel Atom server-class-processors integrated into a 4U industrial rack mount system with a carrier board will be showcased as well. Kontron is set to add similar systems as standard products to its portfolio in 2018.

The evaluation platforms for Embedded Server encompass the following models:

The "Cube" is a compact-design evaluation platform for use in IT environments. The Cube features a single-socket Intel Xeon processor and enhanced storage functionality. The system is part of a TSN/OPC UA live demonstration at the booth.

The 4U Embedded Server offers scalable performance by utilizing a COM Express Type 7 Module with Intel Xeon and Intel Atom server-class processors for industrial applications. The options for expansion offered by their 7 PCIe slots make them an ideal fit for servers tasked with analytics, artificial intelligence or machine learning. Two 10 gigabit ethernet interfaces allow for high data throughput.

The two evaluation platforms presented will be complementary to the standard product Kontron HPW410 used as a high-performance workstation/Embedded Server in industrial applications. The HPW410 server features a dual-socket Intel Xeon processor and 6 PCIe slots. Adding GPGPU plug-in cards will make the system well suited for analytics, artificial intelligence or machine learning tasks as well as Embedded Vision applications. Integration of OPC UA and the Kontron TSN networking card (see separate press release) also presented at the trade fair is possible on a project-specific base with the configuration described. Together with S&T, Kontron offers in-depth consultation on specific tasks in this area as a service.
