Augmentix Rolls Out Rugged Server

Austin-based Augmentix, a developer of rugged computing systems, said Monday that it has launched a new server based on Dell's PowerEdge 1950 III server. The firm, which is venture backed by Austin Ventures, Centennial Ventures, and G-51 Capital, said the new A+1950 rugged server provides Xeon-based, 64-bit dual and quad-core processors in a 2U, rack and transit case mounted form factor. Augmentix is targeting the new server at the military, industrial, and government market. Augmentix developed ruggedized versions of Dell servers, which are built to withstand higher thermal, shock, vibration, and other tough environmental conditions. Augmentix also said that its computers are also subjected to MIL-STD-810F testing and certification. The firm's servers are currently deployed with the USMC, Navy, Air Force, Army, and other customers.
