Space saving quad core industrial servers open new market opportunities in data intensive applications
Eching, Germany, April 21, 2008 – Shortly after the launch of its first quad core KISS4U ultra quiet industrial server, Kontron has extended its family of quad core industrial servers with two new members. The KISS4U Short and KISS2U with integrated Flex-ATX motherboard now feature the Intel® Core™2 Quad processor in space saving “4U Short” and 2U designs.

Together with the low height KISS2U (88 mm x 482 mm x 472 mm) both servers are the ideal choice for densely packed, data intensive applications such as those found in test and measurement or industrial and medical image processing. Furthermore, with an ultra quiet performance of
