NextComputing, a provider of portable workstations and dense, small-footprint servers, has introduced the latest addition to its Radius series of mobile computers, the Radius EX-B. Based on NextComputing's Radius EX all-in-one portable workstation, the Radius EX-B is the company's first portable system to feature an integrated battery for total mobility.
Users in industries like military intelligence, oil and gas exploration, digital video production, and network testing need high-performance hardware for their demanding applications. Features like full-powered CPUs, high-end 3D graphics, high-speed RAID storage, and PCI expansion slots are often required for these mission-critical applications. But when trying to run these applications in the field, these users are often forced to choose between large, non-mobile systems like a tower or rack-mount server that gives them the performance they require, or scale their application down to run on a laptop for mobility.
NextComputing solves this problem with the Radius EX-B. The system is designed to offer true workstation and server performance in a compact, all-in-one package that is easy to transport and set up. But unlike other NextComputing portables, the Radius EX-B can run completely un-tethered, without being plugged into a power source.
