NCS Technologies Bunker XRV-5241 Server
NCS Technologies’ 35-pound Bunker XRV-5241 1U rack server is perhaps a little too extreme for the everyday office: This machine is designed for war zones. According to the marketing director at NCST, the server will “likely be parachuted into service in tactical deployments” (in a transit case, of course). The Bunker XRV-5241 can withstand extreme temperatures (between 32 degrees and 122 degrees Fahrenheit when running, and between minus 40 degrees and 158 degrees Fahrenheit when off), and extreme altitudes (10,000 feet when running; 25,000 feet when off). It's also vibration- and shockproof. Such toughness doesn’t come cheap, of course—the Bunker XRV-5241 starts at around $3700.
