The FREDC Data Center is purpose-built to function as a high-performing departmental forensic server. With over 100 installations world-wide, FREDC is a proven, one-of-kind solution for departmental forensic acquisition, analysis, case management, evidence storage and data archival needs.

Not Your Traditional IT Data Center

FREDC Data Centers function as a digital forensic data server and complete forensic network infrastructure. The heart of each FREDC is a SERVER-RM module, powered by Intel Dual Xeon E5-2620 processors, with 8 cores per cpu. Upgrades of 10, 14, and 18 cores per cpu are available. 128 GB DDR4 memory is standard, upgradeable to 256 and 512 GB.

Each FREDC Server-RM comes standard with a ten drive internal RAID array for operating system, workstation images and other data storage needs. FREDC systems also include a sixteen drive RAID-RM module for digital evidence storage. As evidence storage needs grow, additional RAID-RM modules can be added. RAID6 fault tolerance is standard and other types of RAID striping are also supported. FREDC Data Centers achieve extremely fast data transfers with dual 10 Gb ethernet networks, standard with FREDC installations.

The FREDC SERVER-RM’s operating system is OpenSUSE Linux, optimized by Digital Intelligence for incredible performance and near-zero system administration. With a FREDC Data Center, you avoid the headaches, upgrades, and higher support cost that come with traditional Windows data server environments.

Direct to Network Imaging

The 10 GB Ethernet backbone supports direct-to-network forensic imaging at drive limited speeds. Direct-to-network imaging saves time and resources by eliminating the need to use interim storage devices. Each FREDC network module includes a 48-port Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) switch for connecting workstations, network printers, and other devices.

Standard on all FREDC’s is the FRED-RM (rackmount) forensic workstation. Each FRED-RM, itself a processing and forensic imaging powerhouse, ships with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and OpenSUSE Linux operating systems. Exclusive to DI, the UltraBay 4d has advanced imaging features (single drive or multiple simultaneous drive imaging), read/write modes (for non-forensic drive wiping), and a touch-screen UI for device information access and management not available in other forensic systems.

Easy to manage. Lower Cost to Own

To further reduce the cost of FREDC ownership, we’ve included a proprietary set of system and network administration utilities. Built by Digital Intelligence, these utilities reduce or eliminate the time and effort required to maintain a properly running high-performance forensic network. Network workstation installation, system backup, system restoration, drive mapping, single user sign-on, and even bare metal disaster recovery is made almost trivial.

Share Software Licenses. Lower Software Costs

Use FREDC to manage your software investment. Forensic and eDiscovery software license dongles connected to the SERVER-RM USB 3.0 ports are managed as shared resources for departmental access and use. This feature, exclusive to Digital Intelligence FREDC Data Centers promotes efficient sharing of software licenses and may help lower software licensing costs.
