Kontron introduces the high-performance  KISS 4U V3 SKW Rackmount Server for compute-intensive applications

Low-noise industrial design featuring the powerful Intel® Xeon® W-2100 processor

Augsburg, Germany, September 27, 2018 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computer Technology (ECT), is expanding its portfolio of server products with the KISS 4U V3 SKW Rackmount Server. Apart from the server's extremely high-performance, it features extended storage capacities for powerful image processing and compute-intensive AI and Machine Learning as well as SCADA/MES applications. The robustness, reliability and longevity of the KISS 4U V3 SKW is tailored to the needs of demanding and harsh industrial enviroments. Plus, the flexible, modular design ensures easy adaptation to customer-specific requirements. 

The high-performance Intel® Xeon® W-2100 processor integrated in the KISS 4U V3 SKW Rackmount Server makes it the perfect choice for long-term highly available 24/7 operation. Additionally, the rackmount server operates almost soundlessly (<= 35 dBA), which is an important criterion for use in noise sensitive areas, or in close proximity to human operators, such as control stations, medical environments, or sound and film studios. Its efficient thermal concept ensures smooth operation at high temperatures (up to 50° Celsius). The server in standard 4U size (177x482x472 mm) is shock and vibration resistant according to EN 60068-2-27 and EN 60068-2-6, which makes it suitable for semi-mobile applications, for instance, large construction sites.

The rackmount server supports error checking and correction (ECC) and offers a capacity of up to 512 GB with built-in memory of a maximum of eight DIMM DDR4-2666 modules. Two USB 2.0, one USB 3.1C and seven USB 3.1 ports provide high connectivity, while two GB LAN ports ensure high data throughput. In addition, the KISS 4U V3 SKW offers RAID support and features internal 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SATA drives, three 5.25-inch drive slots and a M.2 2280 PCIe slot. Seven PCIe slots are available for internal expansion of the rackmount server. Thanks to the modular design and the variety of I/O as well as extention options, the KISS 4U V3 SKW Rackmount Server is quickly and easily adapted to meet customer-specific requirements. 

The server comprises Intel® Xeon® W-2100 series processors with four to eight cores on a LGA2066 socket with C422 chipset. This makes the rackmount server ideally suited for AI and Machine Learning applications as they easily handle complex, compute-intensive processes and analyses of huge amounts of data. 

The KISS 4U V3 SKW Rackmount Server is Microsoft Azure certified for smooth interaction with cloud applications. Optionally, security solutions like TPM 2.0 and the Kontron APPROTECT security solution powered by Wibu-Systems can be integrated.
