Augmentix's New Mission-Critical Servers Cut Applied Computing Costs

HOUSTON – June 16, 2004 – Augmentix Corp. is changing the economics of applied computing with the unveiling of a new line of mission-critical servers for applied computing applications that offer up to twice the performance of competing systems for as little as half the price.

Slated for initial shipments this summer, Augmentix has enhanced state-of-the-art Dell servers for greater environmental resilience, reliability, and ease of servicing. Competing systems are built from scratch, often with components that are a full generation behind those found in standard, commercial models. By contrast, Augmentix starts with systems that employ the most current processors, drives, and other components.

Augmentix's first NEBS- and ETSI-compliant server products are the Augmentix A+750™ and Augmentix A+1750™ models. They are based on the Dell PowerEdge™ 750 and PowerEdge™ 1750 servers. Both models are engineered to deliver leading-edge performance for demanding applications in markets such as communications, industrial automation, medical imaging and the military.
