The SCIF Edition of the Portable Server is ideal for high-powered workshops or large-scale events where the need for security is paramount. It creates or integrates into a stand-alone network environment.*
The server comes pre-installed with the MeetingSphere software and is capable of serving hundreds of simultaneous users. Unlike its commercial twin, the SCIF server will never have to connect to anything outside your environment.
The SCIF Edition of the Portable Server provides all options required for integration into a tightly controlled local network. The DHCP and DNS services are optional. The server can be set to any non-routable IP address. The data volume of the SSD drive is encrypted with LUKS (aes-xts-plain64). On startup, decryption of the application data requires input of a passphrase.
Purchase of a Portable SCIF Server starts with buying the server box. You then purchase a subscription for the server software adding at least one facilitator subscription. Facilitator subscriptions on Portable Servers offer the user functionality of MeetingSphere Pro which means that - if you allow it - facilitators can move meetings between their online deployment and the Portable Server by downloading and uploading them as a file.
In contrast to MeetingSphere Pro, facilitator subscriptions on Portable Servers are not personal but come with a defined number of concurrent participants: 25, 50, 100, 200 or over 200. If you allow it, anyone in your team can just sign out the server and run an engaging and productive workshop or event – securely, anywhere!
Portable Server Hardware
The Portable Server box packs the latest Intel technology into an ultra small, dustproof, industrial grade, fanless aluminum chassis. Running from a solid state disk, the ‘power’ button remains the only moving part. All configuration and maintenance occurs through the browser. The robust server operating system (CentOS Linux) guarantees stability.
Decryption at boot of an encrypted SSD requires keyboard and monitor.
*As they are designed and licensed for isolated off-Internet networks, Portable Servers - SCIF Edition do not offer voice or screen sharing services.
