The HCL lists all of the hardware components that are supported by each version of ESXi/vSphere. This allows the company to offer configurations to the market that can be combined with VMware vSphere certified and validated.
The BoltCOR 30-17 family of powerful, ruggedized edge servers, designed for demanding and rough environments, is addressing the needs of vertical markets like transportation, Industry 4.0/manufacturing, smart energy or retail. The BoltCOR 30-17 is a fanless EN50155 certified server with many configuration options, that is designed to exceed the requirements of rolling stock applications in the TX temperature class. The edge server’s compact 19” 1U rack-mount short-depth form factor allows it to be deployed even in most space-constrained on-board and track-side installations. It is extremely rugged and suitable for any project where consistent performance, long-term product support and reliability are a must.
Combined with VMware vSphere these systems enable customers to gain also outside the traditional data center (in the field) similar positive effects that enterprise IT has experienced in hyper-converged solutions.
“In the Industrial IoT virtualization technology’s primary role is to enhance operational efficiency at the network edge,” said Robert Andres, Chief Strategy Officer, Eurotech. “Employing intelligent gateways and servers with VMware vSphere located at the edge of the network, enable not only the efficient support of legacy solutions but allow to add new applications like IoT virtualized gateway functionality or data analysis to be performed in a local facility, thereby generating real-time, insightful business intelligence, that allows decisions to be made in the moment”.
“In the context of this trend towards edge computing, we are thrilled, that Eurotech offers systems that employ VMware virtualization and IoT technology, products and experience, taking it from its regular role in the data center or cloud and leveraging its benefits also at the edge closer to where data from things reside and processing will be necessary of the network infrastructure.” Mimi Spier, VP Internet of Things business, VMware.
With more than twenty-five years as innovator and pioneer in embedded products and software, Eurotech (eurotech.com) is globally recognized as a leader in providing end-to-end, simple and ready to use solutions.

We offer our customers the tools to innovate and support their way of doing business. Our approach of pervasive or ubiquitous computing combines the miniaturization of smart devices, their spread in the real world - from buildings and equipment to wearables and the environment - and their connection and communication via network, Cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence and collaborative robotics are creating new opportunities for innovation, especially in edge computing. Increasingly, embedded computers will be in demand at the periphery, connected to the cloud, their connection guaranteed by IoT platform software.
Eurotech’s IoT platform for industrial IoT - the Everyware Cloud - boasts an open innovation development model, powering its adoption as de-facto standard. In addition, thanks to our know-how in HPC development, Eurotech is one of a handful of companies able to offer very compact High Performance Embedded Computers (HPECs).
