Mercury partners with HPE on rugged servers

Mercury Systems, Inc. of Andover, MA announced on February 19 an OEM agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) that will enable Mercury to develop a new rugged rackmount server product line based on HPE’s ProLiant server technology. Mercury’s new EnterpriseSeries RES-XR6 Alliance rackmount servers leverage components from HPE’s ProLiant platform and combine them with Mercury’s proven innovative technologies, thermal and mechanical design features into a rugged field-deployable solution that delivers industry-leading advanced compute capabilities to mission-critical defense and tactical edge applications.

“Servers built with Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components are designed to keep pace with changing application requirements and improve interoperability, but at the same time they need to be size, weight and power (SWaP)-optimized and certified to military standards for our customers,” said Scott Orton, vice president and general manager of Mercury’s Trusted Mission Solutions group. “Our OEM agreement with HPE enables us to offer cost-effective mission-ready servers, supporting our stated goal of making commercial technologies profoundly more accessible to aerospace and defense.”

“Mission-critical edge applications require field-proven computing platforms that optimize performance in a broad range of environments with shock, vibration and temperature extremes,” said Sam Ceccola, account chief technologist, Department of Defense, HPE. “By working with key industry partners like Mercury Systems, aerospace and defense customers can leverage HPE ProLiant servers to securely accelerate and scale applications with advanced compute performance.”
