Server-caliber Computer Doubles as a Mobile Workstation

By Margaret S. Gurney

The EUROCOM D901C PHANTOM-X Mobile Server from Eurocom (Nepean, ON) is powered by Intel’s newest line of Quad Core Xeon processors, qualifying it as a super mobile workstation and a mobile server.

With an Intel Q9650 Quad Core or Xeon X3370 processor, a one-gigabyte (GB) NVIDIA Quadro FX3700, and 1.5 terabytes (TB) (3 x 500GB) of storage with three physical SATA-300 hard drives (3Gbps) and RAID 0/1/5, Eurocom calls the EUROCOM D901C PHANTOM-X Mobile Server “the world’s first server-class notebook.”

Notebook & Server in One
The EUROCOM Mobile Server can reduce the time and cost of deploying short-term LAN-based solutions and can extend usage of existing applications to users wherever it is required.

"This is one extremely fast notebook that offers server on-the-go capabilities.”
— Mark Bialic, Eurocom, president

EUROCOM PHANTOM-X’s ($2454) Intel Xeon Quad Core X3370 processor runs at 3.0GHz with 12MB of L2 cache. It’s complemented by a built-in UPS, an onboard Gigabit Ethernet port, an integrated 17-in. LCD, and 102-key keyboard.

"It’s a server-caliber computer complete with uninterrupted power supply in a 12-pound notebook form factor," said Mark Bialic, President of Eurocom. "This is one extremely fast notebook that offers server on-the-go capabilities.”

Multitasking Capability
Offering the server-class processor and up to 8GB of DDR2-800 memory, the D900C PHANTOM-X’s 1.5TB with RAID 0/1/5 makes it “the perfect mobile server laptop for users who demand extra-large capacity storage and reliability for true portable server experience,” according to the company.

Driving the EUROCOM PHANTOM-X system is Intel Quad Core, the newest 95W X3360 Xeon 1333MHz front-side bus processor, which, says the company, delivers “exceptional” multitasking and multithreaded performance. It also supports the newest line of Intel FSB1333 Core 2 Duo processors E6x50 series. Up to 8GB of DDR2-800 memory is supported.

The PHANTOM-X measures 15.8 x 11.9. x 2.05 in. and weighs less than 12 lbs. Users are offered RAID 0, 1, or 5 configuration options to meet their transfer rates, application load times, or redundancy requirements.
