Eurocom knows a thing or three about desktop replacements, but a full fledged server replacement? At least on paper, that's what you get with Eurocom's Phantom 4.0 "Server-on-the-Go" notebook. This beast of a system comes loaded to the brim with high performance hardware, including a pair of server class processors.
The new Phantom 4.0 supports up to two Intel Xeon processors, up to 48GB of RAM via 8GB sticks in al six memory slots, up to six storage drives with RAID 0/1/5/10/30, and a wide range of operating systems to choose from, including Microsoft Server 2003R2 x32 or x64, Server 2008R2 x64, VMware, Red Hat, Linux, Solaris, and Windows 7.
"The Eurocom Phantom 4.0 is the perfect solution for customers looking for Server-on-the-Go capabilities. Server-on-the-Go is a new category of server-class notebook form-factor computers with integrated display, keyboard, and UPS (internal battery) which allows for both 'on-the-go,' 'rapid server deployment,' or 'Ad Hoc' (temporary network setup) when single server capability is required, multiple operating system compatibility is needed, and running virtual machines is a must," Eurocom says.
This new breed of mobile server doesn't come cheap. Pricing for the Phantom 4.0 starts at $7,999, more than three times as much as the Phantom 3.0, which starts at $2,631.
