Last time Eurocom mentioned its Panther 5SE mobile server in a press release it was back in mid-September, when it got support for Linux RedHat Enterprise Server Edition 6.4. Now this powerful heavyweight laptop becomes the world's first one to be equipped with the 12-cores/24-threads Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 processor designed specifically for mobile servers.
The Eurocom Panther 5SE can be configured as needed and the top processors available are the Intel Xeon E5-2695 v2 or E5-2697 v2. In addition to these, the Panther 5SE offers support for the entire E5-2600 v2 family, from E5-2620 v2 to E5-2697 v2. The quad channel memory setups can go up to 32 GB of DDR3 1600 MHz, while storage available on this mobile server can reach 6 TB (four internal 1.5 TB drives) with RAID 0,1,5,10 capability.
Eurocom's Panther 5SE also comes equipped with an Intel 82579V Gigabit Ethernet port built-in and support for additional LAN ports can be added via ExpressCard or external MagmaExpress Expansion Box. The swappable 78.44Wh lithium-ion battery pack can provide up to one hour of autonomy, while the external 300 W power adapter "reduces internal heat generated inside the system and it also creates a smaller, lighter chassis that requires less ambient cooling than traditional servers."
The 12.1 pounds mobile server can be configured and ordered via Eurocom's website at prices starting around $3,000 (depending on the hardware and software configuration chosen).
