Services for Your Success

NextComputing offers solution creation, engineering, and integration services to customize this flexible platform for the success of you and your customers

In tough environments

For mobile deployments where size, weight, power, and cooling (SWaP-C) are a concern, typical rackmount servers are just too large, heavy and power consuming. The Vigor EDS is the perfect solution to overcome these problems.

Vigor EDS with single, dual or triple display is an ideal platform for use cases that require a rugged (ROTS- rugged enough off the shelf) deployable data analytics appliance.

Some use cases might include:

  • deployable virtualization VMware vSphere OVA platform
  • incident response
  • network performance monitoring
  • endpoint and network data auditing
  • simulation and visualization
  • real-time data and signal recording
  • packet recording
  • network performance monitoring
  • signal recording
  • metadata collection
  • general test/measurement
  • portable server and private cloud
  • deployable deep learning, AI, and machine learning analytics use cases

Ideal for use at the “edge” or site and where its high-speed recording with its quick-time removable large-capacity high-endurance SSDs are applicable.

It also features high core/thread count processors, support for various Linux distributions and vSphere ESXi, and best in class performance/lane count PCI Express 3.0 slots for high performance network adaptors, FPGA, GPU co-processing.

The Vigor EDS can be optimized for high performance combinations of processors-GPUs-fast internal/removable 12G storage arrays- and I-O configured for your application specific purpose-built use case. Data off-load can be fast and easy with flexible networking options including multiple 10G or 40G interfaces, USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports. Remote control features can include IPMI and Wi-Fi.

The Vigor EDS is a durable, yet relatively lightweight portable, deployable platform. It is available with an optional durable carrying bag, telescoping rolling bag, or a mil-spec rolling hard case.

Let us help you create your purpose built deployable appliance around our Vigor EDS platform
