High-performance server


Stealth.com Inc. has released a new high-performance server that delivers the benefits of two servers in a single 1U (1.75-in height) rack space. The Stealth model: SR-1600 is designed to address demanding HPC (High Performance Computer) workloads for applications that require significant processing power and system performance.

Designed with a total of four Intel Xeon 5500/5600 processors (two per node), the SR-1600 is capable of handling high-intensity computing needs for today's most demanding applications. The system employs fully scalable DDR3 ECC memory with options up to 288 GB (144 GB per node). The cable free, modular system design allows for complete component swap out in mere minutes eliminating the time and financial costs of extended downtime.


The SR-1600 supports four front accessible hot swappable 2.5-in hard drives (two per node) with up to 2TB's of storage space for archived data. For applications that require extra system performance SSD (Solid State Drive) options are available. The Stealth rack server is powered with an energy efficient 1100 W (80 plus) power supply that can be removed and replaced in seconds. Systems are compatible with Microsoft Server 2008/2003, Red Hat, VMware and can be custom configured to meet the exact needs of the end user. The Stealth model SR-1600 rack's ideal deployment includes applications that require maximum computer density for Manufacturing, Financial Services, Scientific/Engineering, Aerospace, and Energy, to name a few.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
