Reliability-Maintainability-Availability

Uninterrupted performance is critical to most application - our high reliability systems offer comprehensive protection to provide the power and peace of mind your market demands.
A primary driver in the applied computing solutions market is the demand for maintainability (ease of maintenance) and high availability (near-zero downtime) systems for mission critical applications. The standard for such systems is "five nines" (99.999%) reliability, which equates to five minutes or less downtime per year. To achieve that level of performance, key system components, including the Single Board Computer (SBC), power supply, peripherals, card-bay cooling, high MTBF fans with an easily removable drive bay and fan filters are the building blocks for a fully integrated system offering; Reliability, Serviceability, Scalability, Maintainability, and Availability.
