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.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
