AWS Outposts servers, a part of the AWS Outposts family, provide local compute and networking services for sites with space and capacity constraints, like retail stores, branch offices, healthcare provider locations, or factory floors. They are ideal for low-latency and local data processing needs.
Outposts servers are delivered directly to you, and installed by either your onsite personnel install or a 3rd-party vendor. Once connected to your network, AWS will remotely provision compute and storage resources. With Outposts servers you can run native AWS services locally, like Amazon EC2, Amazon ECS, and AWS IoT Greengrass. You can use the same AWS APIs, control plane, and tools that you’re familiar with to manage servers across hundreds or thousands of on-premises locations.
The 1U high server is suitable for 19ʺ wide cabinets, is 24ʺ deep, and uses an AWS Graviton2 processor to provide 64 vCPUs, 128 GiB memory, and 4 TB of local NVMe storage. The 2U high server is suitable for standard 19ʺ wide, 30ʺ deep cabinets, and uses an Intel processor to provide up to 128 vCPUs, 256 GiB memory, and 8 TB of local NVMe.

Vistry is delivering restaurant automation SaaS applications with AWS Outposts servers.
"With the historic challenges quick-serve restaurants (QSRs) are facing due to the pandemic, restaurant automation at the edge is a core focus for many brands. AWS Outposts servers address many of the key challenges of digitization encountered in QSR owner/operator franchise models. By having a consistent, reliable, secure and affordable enterprise infrastructure extended to the edge, IoT and machine learning real-time workloads can be provisioned using the same services, APIs and experiences available in the cloud. This allows for rapid innovations that QSR brands are seeking, to respond to rapidly evolving customer needs."
