RES Trust 2U

Featuring a U.S. designed and manufactured ATX-style motherboard with built-in security features, up to 60TB of storage in four disk drives, high speed I/O, expansion slots and enhanced reliability features, RES Trust 2U provides trusted performance, improved interoperability, and flexibility for current and future system requirements. To further enhance reliability, the system removes socketed components and solders processors and memory directly to the motherboard—eliminating disconnect during shock events.

Mercury’s hardware-based Root of Trust and cyber-resilient BIOS mitigate multiple security threats to the application, in part, by reducing the available attack surfaces to minimize boot devices. Built-In interfaces allow servers to participate in platform-wide security architectures. Our RES Trust motherboard addresses threat vectors from the moment of power-on until a secure OS, hypervisor or application is running.
