Augmentix Ships 1U Server

Austin-based Augmentix, which develops ruggedized personal computers and servers, said Thursday that it has announced a new, rackable 1U server. The firm said the new A+R200 server is based on Dell's PowerEdge R200 enterprise server, and features Dual-Core Xeon 3000 and Qual-Core Xeon 3200 processor options. Augmentix provide ruggedized version of Dell's server platforms for the military, industrial, and government customers.
