Here’s an interesting application using our Stealth Rackmount computers.
The Ontario Science Centre, a science based museum in Toronto, Canada opened a new facility aimed at getting youth and young adults interested in science and technology. Over 50 different multi-media experiences were designed to inspire visitors to take on and find practical solutions to current world problems; merge art with science; and work with a variety of materials. Visitors are challenged to think differently about themselves and the world.
A quantity of 77 Stealth 2U rackmount computer systems were deployed in rack cabinets conserving space without jeopardizing processing power or system reliability. Stealth built custom rack servers that were only 3.5″ in height (2U) and featured internal hot swappable thermal cooling fans for easy maintenance and reduced downtime.
The IT staff involved in implementing the project has commented “The Stealth hardware has been Rock Solid”. Since the opening there has been many thousands of children and young adults who have experienced technology like never before.
Stealth received a nomination from Microsoft’s Impact Awards for this inspiring application.
The Ontario Science Centre is also a leading developer of interactive exhibitions for science centers around the world.
