The external appearance is an icon representing the proven features of this model, based on its superior performance and reliability in mission-critical operations. The front face consists of evenly spaced aluminium slats. These simple exterior elements underscore the high capacity and scalability of the machine. There are multiple colour patterns of punched metal between the slats. They are designed to visually emphasize the support for multi-tasking enabled as well as providing the functionally required apertures in sufficient number to cool the interior components.
