Build a tiny, low-power server that handles all of your network tasks with ease

Note: The net5501 has been discontinued. Please check out the net6501 and the APU2 as alternatives to the net5501.

Save space, reduce energy-consumption and spend less time on maintenance with the compact and durable net5501 server.

Here’s what you can do with a net5501 server:

  • Perform all of your server tasks with ease – including firewalling, VPN routing, internet gateway or application serving – thanks to a 500MHz AMD processor and 500MB of RAM
  • Save space on your desk or in your server cabinet with a slimline server that has the same footprint as an A5 piece of paper
  • Save space in your server rack with a rackmount server that’s only 1RU high and a tiny 190mm or 250mm deep
  • Save even more space by having all of your cords come out the front of your server, with an externally powered 190mm-deep rackmount server
  • Build the perfect redundant high-availability server in a single rack unit, with space for two net5501 boards in one 19″ 1RU rackmount enclosure
  • Significantly reduce electricity consumption with an energy-efficient server that uses less than 8W per board
  • 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 robust design that ensures it can cope with industrial and remote locations
  • Keep your server room or cabinet cool and quiet with a completely fanless server that also has excellent heat dissipation
  • Have the freedom to design your server your way, with the capacity to run many different flavours of Linux, and your choice of rackmount or standalone enclosures
  • Create a highly-polished, professional solution with a stylish rackmount enclosure, including a black anodised front, laser etched port labels, with matching cover plates and hex screws
  • Feel confident that your server is built to last in a light yet strong case made from aluminium, that is also splash and dust resistant
  • Connect your server to the world easily with four or eight 10/100 ethernet ports, two serial ports and one USB port
  • Connect the power easily and safely to your rackmount server using standard IEC connections to the internal power supplies, including illuminated power switches at the rear
  • Quickly identify the right port to plug into with smart and durable port labels, etched into the rackmount cover plates
