Upgrade to Windows 7 with DuroPCs for Simplicity and Cost Savings

image001As of April 8, 2014, Microsoft will discontinue support for Windows XP.  Many businesses are asking DuroPC to help them migrate to a Windows 7 platform.

Often, these businesses have a large investment of I/O hardware (PCI cards, ISA cards, etc) and software running on old computers that do not support Windows 7.  New ‘white-box’ computer companies (DELL, HP, etc) do not offer the I/O slots necessary for this legacy hardware. Many companies were planning to scrap their old hardware and re-invest in new I/O hardware and software – until they found out that DuroPC offers precise solutions to fit their needs.

The RAC381 has 7 PCI slots TWR335

A new computer from DuroPC prolonged the life of their previous investments by accommodating all of their I/O cards (even ISA and full-height, full-length PCI and PCI-X), while complying with IT-mandated updates to Windows 7.  DuroPC helped these customers save tens of thousands of dollars by avoiding significant re-investments in I/O hardware and software.  Further, many DuroPC computers come with rich I/O features like dual Ethernet and multi-interface serial (RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485) – all in a new, warrantied, durable computer.  Here are a few examples:

  • TWR371Tower PC with 4x PCI, 1x PCIex16 (3.0), 1x PCIex4 (2.0), 1x PCIex1 (2.0)
  • RAC304 – 4U Rackmount PC with 6x PCI-X, 4x PCI, 1x PCIex16
  • SHB382Shoebox PC with 6x PCI, 1x PCIex16
  • RAC381 – 4U Rackmount PC with 7x PCI, 1x PCIex16, 5x PCIex4
  • RAC374 – 4U Rackmount PC with 13x PCI
  • TWR335 – Tower PC with 7x PCI, 1x Mini PCIex1
  • RAC161 – 4U Rackmount PC with 4x PCI, 4x ISA, 1x PCIex16, 4x PCIex1

If you have upgraded but still require additional I/O card slots, DuroPC also offers Expansion Chassis.  A DuroPC expansion chassis provides a solution to add many PCI expansion slots to any PC using a common interface, such as PCI express.  Check out the DuroPC expansion chassis offerings here:  http://www.duropc.com/products/expansion-chassis.html.

DuroPC features lead to a sustainable solution, by satisfying your current PCI expansion needs with many integrated 32-bit PCI and 64-bit PCI-X expansion slots along-side several PCIe (PCIex1, PCIex4, PCIex8, PCIex16) that will accommodate future I/O needs and currently available I/O boards.
