PL-81060 is a high-performance server optimized for IIoT Server and Content Delivery Networking (CDN), IT Networking & Storage. The 64-bit ARM-based PL-81060 uses a standard-size 2U chassis, but features flexible storage/memory component allocation - up to (24x) 3.5” HDD and (4x) 2.5” HDD/SDD and 1 TB (DDR4) – to make it an effective solution for space-tight applications. Moreover, with the 1000 Watt 80 Plus Power Supply-unit, the PL-81060 consumes less power than comparable high-performance storage units. ARM processing enables a particulary cost-effective server solution that enables more deployments.

WIN Enterprises will work with you to modify this COTS design to your more specific specifications when ordered in standard OEM or above quantities.
