The 3U BAM Server is proudly designed, manufactured, assembled, integrated and supported in the USA, and most importantly, its configuration lies directly in the hands of the customer.

“One of our design goals for the BAM product line was giving customers as much flexibility as possible,” said Michael Bowling, CEO of Trenton Systems. “It is truly unique how agnostic and nimble the electrical, mechanical and BIOS design is. The BAM motherboard and chassis can be configured to fit almost any compute requirement across a wide array of markets while being the most cost-effective dual Xeon® product Trenton has ever designed.”

Cost-effectiveness and customization are just two parts of the complete 3U BAM package. Baked right onto the BAM’s motherboard is a TPM 2.0 cryptoprocessor for an added boost to system security, as well as on-board IPMI to BMC for remote monitoring of server health. Cyberattacks and technical problems can be devastating, but we believe in securing and protecting your system for the long haul.

In addition, your favorite peripherals and a high-speed network connection don’t have to take the backseat with the 3U BAM Server. Customers will find no shortage of input / output options, as the BAM’s next-gen dual Xeon® motherboard is equipped with:

  • 4 USB 3.0 Ports
  • 1 VGA Port
  • Audio Line In, Line Out
  • 1 RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Port
  • 1 RJ-45 Shared IPMI Lan Port
  • 1 RS232 Serial Port

High-speed storage options were also at the top of the design list for Trenton Systems’ talented engineers. Customers will be able to take advantage of:

  • 6 SATA ports that allow customers to connect 6 Gbps storage devices
  • 2 MiniSAS HD ports for up to 12 Gbps connections

But what about front-access storage options?

Customizable front-access drive bay options are yet another way Trenton Systems is putting customization into the hands of the customer. The standard BAM model features the following front-access configuration:

  • 1 optical disc drive
  • Two 3.5-inch drive bays with up to 5 SATA SSDs in total

But customers may also choose from the following configurations:

  • 1 optical disc drive
  • One 3.5-inch drive bay with up to 2 MiniSAS NVMe SSDs
  • One 3.5-inch drive bay with up to 3 SATA SSDs
  • 5 storage drives in total


  • One 3.5-inch drive bay with up to 2 MiniSAS NVMe SSDs
  • Two 3.5-inch drive bays with up to 3 SATA SSDs each
  • 8 storage drives in total

“The 3U BAM Server provides flexibility and scalability with various storage form factors,” said Yazz Krdzalic, Director of Marketing and Business Development at Trenton Systems. “From standard SATA drives to NVMe SSDs and even the latest Intel® Optane™ drives, you get to pick what part of your application utilizes which technology. You’re not locked into one or the other. That’s a huge plus for our customers across the military and industrial sectors.”

And as always, you can pair the 3U BAM Server with our PCIe backplanes or NVMe JBOD Storage Enclosures to equip your system with any extras it may need.
