In an effort to provide enhanced server capabilities, Crystal Group proudly announces the newest addition to the Crystal Group server family and best in class RS line, the RS235.

In environments where performance, ruggedness, and reliability are imperative, the RS235 server is an ideal fit. This 2U server was designed for shipboard, airborne, and land-based applications. The RS235 offers extended capability with shock/vibe rating of 6 GRMS in combined wheeled vehicle and aircraft profiles, a temperature range of –20 oC up to 60oC (-4 to140oF) and multiple power options. The RS235 is designed and being tested to meet MIL-STDs 810F, 167-1, 461E, and 901D requirements. The RS235 is available with the following processor options: Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo, Dual Core Intel® Xeon® and AMD Opteron(TM). Expansion choices in this short depth (20 inches) server include one PCIe slot with two PCI slots or two PCI-X slots with one PCI slot, meaning greater adaptability. Up to five drives and a slimline CD/DVD are available. As always, each Crystal server comes with a standard three-year warranty. On-site, next day and extended warranties are available with CrystalGuard(TM) coverage. Configuration Management is also available.

The chassis side walls of the RS235 are assembled using milled HS Aircraft Aluminum and internal support structures, allowing the server to operate under extreme conditions.
