CANTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- UNICOM Engineering, a leading provider of application platforms, deployment solutions and lifecycle support services for software technology developers and OEMs worldwide, today announced the availability of the S-1600 R3, a scalable 1U rack mount server solution designed for high-performance security applications requiring superior efficiency and power.

The S1600-R3 combines the performance of a single Intel Xeon E5-2600 or E5-1600 v2 series Sandy Bridge Microarchitecture processor with redundant power and up to eight hot swap hard drives with integrated RAID. With three available expansion risers, the S-1600 R3 is designed to meet various expansion demands while maintaining a 1U form factor and offering the maximum reliability and uptime required for business critical applications.

Companies like Lightspeed Systems Inc. have chosen the UNICOM Engineering S1600-R3 to provide a reliable, scalable appliance that performs affordable web filtering for school networks of any size. The Lightspeed Systems Rocket appliance is a high-speed, scalable network appliance that delivers an easy-to-use single point of management for educators and their IT staff. Pre-loaded with Lightspeed Systems award-winning Web Filter, the Rocket appliance S1600-R3 server is plug-and-play ready for installation and seamless operation with existing school networks.

"It was critical to identify a suitable solution to enable rapid scalability while also ensuring the appliance met the security and efficiency standards that our education clients demand," said Dennis Delaney, director of product development at Lightspeed Systems. "The S1600-R3 provides those qualities in spades, ensuring the Lightspeed Systems Rocket appliance will adapt seamlessly to our customers' changing needs."

The S1600-R3 supports up to eight cores on the Intel Xeon E5-2600 Series or up to six cores on the Intel Xeon E5-1600 v2 Series Sandy Bridge Microarchitecture processor for maximum performance and density. Enterprise-class SAS and SSD drives and RAID ensure maximum reliability, while redundant hot swap power supplies ensure high reliability in case of a failure.

"By delivering a network appliance powered by Intel's latest Sandy Bridge architecture, UNICOM Engineering offers clients a platform for their security applications that maximizes power and efficiency, as well as meets expansion demands with ease," said Jeff Hudgins, vice president of marketing at UNICOM Engineering.
