Shuttle XPCs shine in "Glassy Labs"PC Professionell and their "Glassy Labs" are represented at all important IT trade fairs. From "CeBIT" in Hannover, "Systems" in Munich and "IFA" in Berlin to even "Computex" in Taiwan interested visitors can get an idea of the extensive hardware tests of the German IT-Magazine. Since the PC equipment of the "Glassy Labs" needs to be easy to transport, PC Professionell opted for compact SFF barebones from Shuttle.
Regarding the equipment for their "Glassy Labs," PC Professionell was looking for PCs that are easy to carry, but also can offer the power and functionality of big PCs. So the popular German IT magazine chose PC systems based on Shuttle XPC Barebones. Shuttle was successfully acquired as cooperation partner for the "Glassy Labs" and is the exclusive supplier of PC Professionell for workstations and reference units since the beginning of 2003.
The systems ran stable on each single day of the fair and managed their tasks reliably. Even when put to tough benchmark testings and having them run under full load the whole week no problems occurred. It came to the crunch at the beginning of "Systems" in 2003, when units were placed in a glass cabinet with low air ventilation. The emitted heat and heat from the lightening let the temperature increase inside the glass cabinet to around 40 degrees. But the Shuttle XPCs resisted these circumstances and managed the rest of the fair despite high ambient temperatures and permanent load without failure or crashes.
