FAST Machines - Forensic Workstations
All builds are fully customizable to meet your price-to-performance needs. See our Design Methodology for details. Call any time for a quick custom quote.
All new G3 designs (December 2018), based on years of customer feedback and requirements. The new "X Series" of FAST Machines represent what digital forensic analysts from law enforcement agencies around the country have been asking for for years. As always, we've taken your feedback and your needs to design the ultimate workstations to help you get your work done FAST!
Don't bite on the dual Xeon hype! Just one of these i9 CPUs crushes any equivalent priced dual Xeon system. It takes 2 x $3600 Xeons to equal the processing power of just one $2000 i9-9980xe. Unless you have RAM requirements above 128GB, the i9 CPUs are by far the best bang for the buck.
With the combination of new higher speed DDR4 memory standards, the always included top of the line write blocker, forensic application add-on options, and full customization, your FAST Machine will provide you all the processing power you need today and for the foreseeable future.
Up to 18-core i9 CPU
Up to 128GB DDR4 RAM
Dedicated Enterprise RAID Cards (except X6)
The fastest NVMe SSDs on the market
Full featured Tableau or Logicube internal write blocker included ($1350 value by itself)! NVMe/m.2/PCIe cable kits also included.
Full customization available to meet your price to performance needs
Tools like Passware and Hashcat utilize GPU processing, not your CPU. FAST Forensics has custom designed multiple password cracking solutions for various customers' labs. Top end GPUs like the RTX 2080 ti can be added to your FAST machine, or multiple GPUs can be combined in a single dedicated password cracking system for the ultimate password cracking machine. We can also design a password cracking cluster for your lab utilizing multiple dedicated password cracking machines or even a hybrid solution of dedicated and standard processing machines. Please contact us for further details.
There are many options to provide you storage. With the high performance enterprise RAID adapters that are already installed in FAST Machines, we can simply increase the capacity of your internal RAID array. Another option is a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device. A NAS brings the benefit of shared bulk storage between all the machines in your lab. These devices range from small desktop devices to 24-bay rackmount systems that can expand to over 1 Petabyte of storage, and can offer additional (free) built in features like virtualization, iSCSI and FTP server services. With current storage and networking technologies, this storage is so fast it can feel local to your machine! Check out our Storage page for details on what a NAS can do for you.
