Mercury | January 27, 2023
Technology solutions provider, Mercury Systems, Inc., which delivers processing power to critical defense and aerospace missions, launched its next generation of rugged edge servers powered by 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. The new processors earlier known as Sapphire Rapids, are designed for faster compute-intensive edge workloads and provide quick insights needed for critical defense and aerospace missions.
The all-new RES X08 servers are built using the decades of experience Mercury has with its COTS Rugged Edge Server (RES) rackmount family. RES X08 servers support powerhouse NVIDIA H100 GPUs, low-latency PCIe 5.0 fabrics, high-speed DDR5 memory, versatile Compute Express Link (CXL) expansion and 400 Gbps network cards, packed in a highly configurable, ultra-rugged chassis. Using innovative and secure design, Mercury’s servers are designed from the ground up to dissipate and withstand massive thermal loads which are created by larger, more powerful components. With a smaller footprint, Mercury’s servers are capable of delivering higher computational performance for accelerated workloads in industrial and military applications.
Brian Perry, General Manager of Mercury’s Sensor Systems business unit, said, “The RES X08 follows in the lineage of field-proven RES X07 and RES X06 servers that meet the demanding requirements of mission-critical workloads at the edge.” He further added, “Tens of thousands of Mercury rugged servers are currently deployed across U.S. and international defense programs, and Mercury is proud to make the latest commercial Silicon Valley technologies profoundly more accessible to aerospace and defense customers.”

Keepit, the market leader in cloud data protection and management, announced today that all of its data centers located in the Americas and EMEA are now powered by 100% renewable energy. Keepit operates 10 data centers across the U.S., Canada, Germany, the UK, and Denmark.
