Product Code
  • net6501 boards do not slide out in this rack mount case
  • To have an operating system installed, you will need to include at least one mSATA drive in your order
  • You can only have two SATA devices operating (per board) at the same time. This means that you can use either two mSATA drives, or one mSATA and one standard SATA drive, but not all three at once

Compact and energy-efficient, the dual rackmount net6501 is silent, fanless and built to last.

Exclusive to Yawarra, this dual-board rack mount server is the ideal way to utilise net6501 boards in a server rack.

With four Gigabit ethernet ports as standard, a 1.0GHz or 1.6GHz CPU and up to 2GB of RAM, the net6501 is ideal for use as a firewall, VPN Router, internet gateway or application server, and is NBN-ready.

Internal power supplies are included, with standard IEC power connectors ideal for hosting environments.

You can add mSATA and 2.5″ SATA drives, plus an internal USB flash drive, allowing the rackmount net6501 to serve in an even wider variety of applications.

Each board slot has a punched cover plate to suit the net6501 board. If you choose only one board, the empty slot comes with a blank cover plate that can be easily replaced in future with other options.
