Build an embedded server that won’t let you down

Craft your perfect solution and then just leave it to sit in a corner, doing its thing, year after year without fail, with the tiny, low-power, fanless ALIX 2 server.

Here’s what you can do with an ALIX 2:

  • Handle all of your network tasks comfortably, thanks to a sturdy 500MHz AMD processor and 256MB of RAM
  • Save space on your desk or in your server cabinet with a tiny server that has a footprint just slightly bigger than a CD case – and you can even stand it on its side if you need to
  • Save space in your server rack with a rackmount server that’s only 1RU high and a tiny 190mm or 250mm deep
  • Build the perfect redundant high-availability server in a single rack unit, with space for two ALIX 2 boards in one 19″ 1RU rackmount enclosure
  • Significantly reduce electricity consumption with an energy-efficient server that uses less than 5W at full tilt
  • Keep your server room or cabinet cool and quiet with a completely fanless server that also has excellent heat dissipation
  • Spend less time on maintenance, with a high-quality and ultra-reliable server that is built to last
  • Keep using your server, year after year, without needing to replace or upgrade it
  • Install your server in harsh environments, thanks to its rugged design that ensures it can cope with industrial and remote locations
  • Securely mount your ALIX server in a car, boat, truck or bus and on walls, in ceilings and under floors with the surface-mount wings on the vehicle-mount case
  • Have the freedom to design your server your way, with the capacity to run many different flavours of Linux, and your choice of bookshelf, vehicle-mount or rackmount cases
  • Get ready access to the Compact Flash card, with a board that slides in and out easily, thanks to the extruded design
  • Create a highly-polished, professional solution in a stylish, powdercoated bookshelf case, in a great range of colours
  • Colour-code your servers by function, coordinate them with your company’s branding, or simply make it easy to refer to “that blue box”
  • Create a rugged solution in the practical and durable vehicle-mount case with a dirt-hiding, textured-black powdercoat finish
  • Feel confident that your server is built to last in a case that’s light yet strong, and also dust and splash resistant
  • Connect your server to the world easily with two or three 10/100 ethernet ports, one serial port, two USB ports and one or two miniPCI slots
  • Quickly plug in all of your connections with the ready-made punchouts for ethernet, serial, USB, SMA and power
