Do you need Mobile Servers? Server On-The-Go: the Future of Business
Eurocom ships Intel Xeon based 12 pounds/ 6 kilograms server class laptop with 8 cores, 16 threads, 4 TB of RAID 0,1,5,10 storage and integrated one hour UPS
Mobile Server Evolution
The Mobile Server category was developed in 2003 as Eurocom launched the first ever sever class laptop, the EUROCOM Phantom. Eurocom would continue to develop, refine and perfect this technology by releasing launching other systems. The Phantom X was the world’s first Intel Xeon based laptop, released in 2007. In future years Eurocom would continue to offer laptops powered by server class Intel Xeon processors, such as the EUROCOM Panther and most recently the EUROCOM Panther 5SE. The Panther 5SE is the culmination of years of refinement and expertise related to Mobile Server technology.
The EUROCOM Panther 5 Server Edition is the 4th generation of Eurocom Mobile Server powered by Intel Xeon processors, continuing the tradition of highly capable, stable, upgradeable and expandable server grade hardware from Eurocom.
The EUROCOM Panther 5SE is a 12 lbs, 6 kg Mobile Server equipped with 8 core, 16 thread Intel Xeon Processors, 4 TB of RAIDable Solid State storage and 32 GB of quad channel memory, with 64 GB of memory being available soon.
Fast deployment, right out of the box, combined with easy relocation and the ability to hand carry the system make the EUROCOM Panther 5.0 SE an extremely easy system to travel with while providing server capabilities.
What is a Eurocom Mobile Server?
Server-on-the-Go is a new category of server class notebook form factor computer. The All-in-One compact design, single computer solution allows for server capability anytime, anywhere. Server-on-the-Go allows for either “on-the-go”, “rapid server deployment” or “Ad Hoc” (temporary network setup) when single server capability is required, multiple operating system compatibility is needed and running virtual machines is a must. A Server-on-the-Go solution is perfect for software and database developers, training centers, military personnel, manufacturing, marketing and trade shows, emergency relief and service organizations.
All in One Design
Eurocom Mobile Servers are built upon an All in One design and are equipped with an integrated keyboard, 17.3” LCD Display, touch pad and Uninterruptible Power Supply (Battery Pack).
Intel Xeon Processors
Eurocom Mobile Servers are equipped with Intel Xeon processors to offer customers top of the line performance, reliability and scalability for mission critical applications. The EUROCOM Panther 5SE is driven by a complete line of optional 6 and 8 core Intel Xeon E5 Processors, based on the LGA 2011 processor socket. The top of the line Intel Xeon E5-2690 has 8 cores, 16 threads, 20 MB of L3 cache, running at 2.9 GHz, supports Intel vPro Technology, Intel Virtualization Technology, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel Virtualization Technology for I/O.
Eurocom Mobile Servers are equipped with large amounts of high quality memory. EUROCOM Panther 5SE uses quad channel memory, and enables it to initially support up to 32GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM via four 8GB SODIMM 204 pin modules. With such massive amounts of RAM available, the Panther 5SE becomes a great tool for virtualization and server class environments.
Eurocom Mobile Servers are designed to support large amounts of high capacity, redundant storage options for server class environments. Solid State, Hybrid, or Enterprise level drives with RAID capability are supported in the Panther 5SE. With support for up to four 1 terabyte storage drives, the Panther is able to offer 4 terabytes of storage. RAID 0,1,5,10 capability gives users the ultimate in performance or redundancy.
The Panther 5.0 SE also supports storage expansion through the Optical Drive bay as it can be swapped out for an additional storage drive or can be used to backup data through the BluRay burner. Storage can be expanded through the eSATA port to an external storage medium as well.
The EUROCOM Mobile Server solution significantly reduces the time and cost of deploying short-term LAN based solutions and of extending the usage of existing business applications to users wherever is required. The Panther 5SE is equipped with an Intel® 82579V Gigabyte Ethernet with an option for quad-port GbE, A second LAN adapter can also be added via the ExpressCard slot or a quad port LAN through the MagmaExpress Box. Additional LAN capability can be added through the ExpressCard slot itself, while also allowing connection to a MagamExpressBox for even greater LAN capability. Quad Port Ethernet Adapter available via ExpressCard and MagmaBox.
Eurocom Mobile Servers support a variety of server class operating systems such as Windows 2012, 2008 R2, VMware ESXi, RedHat, Linux.

Key Business Benefits of Eurocom Mobile Servers
A Server-on-the-Go solution fulfills four essential criteria:
1. Ultra-compact size
2. Enterprise-class server platform hardware
3. Significant power savings
4. Complete mobility
5. Long Term Stability
Taken together, these qualities overcome the bottlenecks of traditional rack mount servers. Unlike conventional servers the EUROCOM Panther 5SE is equipped with an integrated keyboard, LCD Display and Uninterruptible Power Supply (Battery Pack). A Polymer Smart Lithium Ion, 78.44 WH, 8 cell battery provides the backup power, allowing for safe shutdown during prolonged blackouts and for continued use during short power outages.
Like all Eurocom systems, long stable life spans of the system are attained by incorporating advanced cooling technology to ensure the system does not overheat. With the long list of highly capable components the EUROCOM Panther 5SE is kept operational by having four large cooling fans pass air through the systems heat sinks. This cooling system disseminates heat through the rear of the system, away from the operator.
“The Panther 5SE is perfect for organizations relocating operations that require fast network setup to eliminate staff downtime. To startup companies having an entire network server, for 20-50 users, running in one box. We also have customers who use our mobile servers as backup in case their production server goes down, they can load the virtual machine on to the mobile server for production purposes while the main production server is down. The more professionals we speak with about the Panther 5SE the more creative and beneficial uses we see” Mark Bialic, Eurocom President.
