Kontron asserts presence in server board market

20 APRIL 2009

Kontron introduced the Kontron KTC5520-EATX, its first foray into the server board market segment, thereby adding a server class category to its already extensive portfolio of embedded and basic motherboard products.
Designed with an extensive feature-set and two new Intel Xeon 5518 45nm quad-core processors, this cost-effective Kontron KTC5520-EATX SSI EEB-compliant server board is expected to far surpass what is available on the market today. Its extreme performance, high I/O bandwidth and exceptional reliability – backed by a up to 7-year life-cycle support program – ensures that this Kontron server board will be widely coveted by OEMs designing a multitude of applications found in the medical imaging, simulation, storage and multimedia telecom and data center markets. As an attractive selling point for network managers is the server board’s built-in ability to be fully managed remotely. Kontron uses an Integrated Management Processor (IMP) that integrates VGA/2D, BMC, and KVM/VM over IP to support real-time access with full control by keyboard, video monitor and mouse (KVM) and virtual media (VM) by a single local computer from anywhere, at any time. Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0 compliant using IPMI over LAN, the server board provides the OS-independent and cross-platform interface for monitoring the server system’s temperature, voltage, and fan status, among other items, and permits out-of-band management even when the main processors are not powered-in.
