New Storage and Processing Blades Accelerate Decision-Making for Big Data, 5G Communications and Artificial Intelligence
ANDOVER, Mass., Sept. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, today announced the new HDC-U.2 High Density Compute and HDS8R storage blades, uniquely combining both storage and compute capabilities into single-blade Enterprise & Datacenter SSD Form Factors (EDSFF) so customers can minimize their overall computing footprint without sacrificing storage capacity or computing speed.
The new blades expand Mercury’s flagship rugged RES HD blade server platform with up to eight high-capacity solid-state drives and two Intel® Xeon® server-class processors in a single slot and feature optional hardware and software protection to safeguard critical IP. Utilizing a single blade type, customers can keep pace with compute-intensive applications such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and sensor fusion and accelerate decision-making by capturing, storing and analyzing data onboard the platform in real time that would have otherwise been discarded or sent to the cloud for processing.
“The growth of big data, 5G networks and AI continues to increase compute and data storage demands on edge systems,” said Scott Orton, vice president and general manager, Edge. “IT administrators and systems architects are constantly juggling trade-offs between storage capacity, bandwidth, latency and cost to stay ahead of the technology refresh curve. Our new scalable HDC-U.2 and HDS8R blades provide the ideal balance of these features, supporting next-generation PCI express speeds while maximizing serviceability, storage and compute capabilities, all while delivering significant cost savings. Through these types of innovations, we’re making technology profoundly more accessible to aerospace and defense.”
Mercury is accelerating innovation for its customers as the Company bridges the gap between commercial technology and defense applications to meet the industry’s current and emerging needs. To learn more, visit mrcy.com/bladeservers or contact Mercury at (866) 627-6951 or email@example.com.
