Cirrascale Corporation®, a premier developer of build-to-order, independent blade-based computing and storage infrastructure for conventional and modular data centers, today announced the next generation of power infrastructure improvements to its BladeRack® 2 F-Series blade-based platforms. The latest improvements to the company’s enterprise-level blade-based infrastructure help to improve the platform’s overall efficiency and reliability. Additionally, the improvements create a new method for distributing power from the data center to the blade architecture.
The next generation power infrastructure employs an enhanced power shelf which integrates within the platform’s unique modular shelf architecture providing up to 18% better power efficiency over comparable competitive solutions. The power shelf efficiently converts the 48V power present in the rack to 12V power suitable for use by the company’s blade architecture. Additionally, the improved efficiency -- when compared with existing commercial power supplies -- allows for power capacity, and cost, to be scaled from 1000 to 2800 Watts per shelf while providing N+1 or better redundancy within the power subsystem using hot-swap power bricks.
“By introducing a way to scale the power available to each BladeRack 2 F-Series shelf, increase the power conversion efficiency, and allow for N+1 redundancy, this next generation power infrastructure is yet another tool that can be used to tailor solutions closely to customer needs,” said
The Cirrascale BladeRack 2 F-Series platforms are engineered to handle mission critical customer installations where high availability, ultra dense systems are a requirement. With its ability to house up to 3.4PB of storage or over 2300 processing cores per rack, the BladeRack 2 F-Series is one of the densest blade server platforms on the market today. With the marriage of robust features and performance, customers in the Semiconductor and Telecommunications industries would find the Cirrascale BladeRack 2 F-Series an excellent vehicle for Electronic Design Automation and high performance grid installations while its improved ultra-efficient power architecture fits seamlessly in their current power challenged environments.
The BladeRack 2 F-Series platform employs the industry leading patented Vertical Cooling Technology™ enabling
The Cirrascale BladeRack 2 F-Series platforms with improved power infrastructure are immediately available to order and will begin shipping Q2 2014. Licensing opportunities for these technologies are also available immediately to both customers and partners.
