Getac has updated its X500 notebook and X500 server products to support mobile big data storage and management solutions for the defence industry.

The rugged 15in X500 notebook features high performance processors, wifi and connectivity capabilities. It allows deployed soldiers to rapidly access and process high density data such as 3D graphical mapping of operational areas or terrain for situational awareness.

Getac’s X500 mobile server is a portable device that can store up to 6TB of data and meets the intensive data and mobile cloud storage requirements of temporarily deployed, rapid early entry and emergency response teams. The mobile server can be used to capture analytical and mission data from dismounted troops, ground or air platforms using X500 notebooks or other mobile data devices.

Soldiers can also use the device to analyse platform, mission and engine data to ensure operational sustainability in demanding environments.

The X500 devices are certified to military standards MIL-STD 461G and MIL-STD 810G, providing reliability in the harshest theatres. Its open architecture makes it fully compatible with current, legacy and future generic base architecture and generic vehicle architecture standards.

Both the X500 notebook and server benefit from Windows 10 security features including tamper-free start-up, data protection and multifactor authentication. In case the system is compromised or stolen, optional mobile device management software will allow it to be disabled remotely. Robust encryption protects data in use and at rest.
