Digital Intelligence's FRED SR

Digital Intelligence's FRED SR

(Options: FRED SR)

FRED SR (Dual Xeon) is the highest performance member of the FRED family of forensic workstations. FRED SR has all the functional capabilities of a FRED system with the addition of components optimized for the absolute highest level of processor, memory, and I/O performance.

Dual Xeon Quad Core Speed (8 Processors). Dual Processor system implementations have traditionally been "server centric" with: outdated chipsets, poor memory bandwidth, poor I/O bandwidth, and limited support for integrated peripherals. Digital Intelligence has designed the first Dual Processor system with all the pre-requisite performance, flexibility, and reliably required of a Forensic Recovery of Evidence Device (FRED). This system is built on a dual-processor 64-bit Xeon Motherboard, with outstanding flexibility, integrated peripheral support, and performance far beyond anything previously seen in a Forensic Workstation.

Integrated IDE, SATA, and SCSI Write Blockers. UltraBay The Digital Intelligence UltraBay can be used to acquire a forensically sound image of IDE, SATA, and SCSI drives using your choice of Forensic Imaging software. Your IDE, SATA, and SCSI drives may be connected and removed from the UltraBay without having to shut down the workstation or leaving the GUI. The UltraBay is exclusively available with Digital Intelligence FRED systems and is not available separately or from any other source.
