Rugged & Deployable IT Infrastructure From NCS

Posted by Katie Callahan on May 2, 2018 1:39:34 PM

NCS Technologies packages sophisticated rugged and easily deployable IT infrastructure to support any need to rapidly deployment to the field.

Rapid and flexible response with the right IT infrastructure is the key.

This is paramount for the military, for civilian agencies responding to emergency situations, as well as first responders, and even industry, such as oil and gas and utility companies working in very harsh environments.

With deployable NCS Rugged and Mobile Infrastructure Solutions, NCS has packaged super reliable IT infrastructure capability to meet practically any need.

Getting IT Infrastructure into the Field

Posted by Katie Callahan on Jan 22, 2018 4:25:21 PM

NCS Technologies packages sophisticated general-purpose-rugged and VDI IT infrastructure to support organizations needing rapid deployment to the field. These solutions were developed for the robust needs of the military, but are also useful for first responders and field organizations in need of rugged infrastructure and/or VDI.

NCS Deployable Infrastructure fits into a number of scenarios:

Basic VDI Configuration Workgroup

This configuration includes a Getac ultra-rugged server and patent-protected virtualized NCS end points intelligently integrated into rugged transit cases. The workgroup is capable of supporting a scalable number of clients while delivering centralized control and easy maintenance. The basic workgroup simplifies the reset process that must occur upon returning from deployments. Client images may be easily and quickly changed to support multiple applications and specific use-case scenarios.  A basic configuration includes 1  magnesium alloy Getac X500 Ultra-Rugged Server platform and 7 Cirrus family zero client notebooks.close-case-sm.png

Deployable IT Infrastructure Made Easy

Posted by Katie Callahan on Dec 18, 2017 4:08:49 PM

NCS Technologies packages sophisticated rugged and Virtual Desktop IT Infrastructure (VDI) to support the need of the military and first responders to have rapid deployment to the field. The need to be nimble and flexible to respond to military hotspots is obvious. And the just past hurricane season also reinforces the need for rapid, flexible response for civilian agencies.

With NCS Deployable Infrastructure Solutions, NCS has designed and built a packaged IT infrastructure capability to meet practically any need.

Deployable VDI Workgroup

From a VDI perspective, NCS offers hyper-converged back-end solutions and patent-protected virtualized NCS end points intelligently integrated into rugged transit cases. The cases are capable of supporting large numbers of clients in the field without losing centralized control while simultaneously delivering easy maintenance. This approach also simplifies the IT aspects of the reset process that must occur upon returning from deployments. The Deployable VDI Workgroup solution gives the flexibility to easily and quickly change client images to support multiple applications and specific use case scenarios. The NCS zero client notebooks in this solution contain no data making them far more secure than traditional rich clients. A basic configuration includes 1 high quality magnesium alloy Getac X500 Ultra-Rugged Server platform and 7 Cirrus family zero client notebooks.

Simplify Deployable IT Infrastructure

Posted by Katie Callahan on Sep 21, 2017 11:47:39 AM

NCS Technologies packages sophisticated IT infrastructure to support the need of the military and first responders to rapid deployment to the field. The need to be nimble and flexible to respond to military hotspots is obvious. And the current hurricane season also reinforces the need for rapid, flexible response for civilian agencies. The 2017 hurricane season has seen four Category 4 or stronger storms that have impacted the U.S. The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico just received a direct hit from Hurricane Maria that has caused a 100% power outage on the island and colossal damage to infrastructure that will take years to repair.

With Deployable VDI, NCS envisioned building a packaged IT infrastructure capability to respond this type of need.

NCS offers hyper-converged back-end solutions and end points intelligently integrated into rugged transit cases. These cases are capable of supporting large numbers of clients in the field without losing centralized control while simultaneously delivering ease of maintenance. This approach also simplifies the IT aspects of the reset process that must occur upon returning from deployments. Our three solutions are:
