Aparna System’s µCloud™ 4015 ultra-converged systems combine compute, storage and networking in a compact high performance, high availability system. The architecture employs innovative design techniques for integrating merchant silicon and commercial off-the-shelf components to create an open system that delivers industry-leading high server density and energy efficiency.
Unlike existing “rack and stack” hyper-converged and blade server products that employ subsystem- and/or chassis-level integration, and that are often over-subscribed and require external top of rack switching, Aparna’s ultra-converged µCloud™4015 system is purpose-built for OT Edge computing deployment. The result is a unique system that offers breakthrough advances in Edge Cloud density, efficiency and cost-effectiveness with its fault-tolerant, non-stop high-performance design.
µCloud 4015 Open Edge System
µCloud 4015 system can scale incrementally up to 15 Xeon Servers. The system is packaged in a 4U NEBS-compliant chassis with hot-swappable AC/DC power supplies, Dual Switch Fabrics that include GPS clock acquisition capability for applications that require precise timing, such as time series databases. The systems are also equipped with dual, hot-swappable active/active switches that deliver 20 Gbps of bandwidth per µServer and an aggregate uplink capacity of 640 Gbps (2 switches x 8 ports at 40 Gbps each). This design is what gives the 4015 its fully fault-tolerant, non-stop, non-blocking performance. This ultra-converged system brings unprecedented CPU core density, energy efficiency (less than 75 Watts per µServer), and high intra-cluster bandwidth in an integrated system.
The µServers are available in multiple models and can be mixed and matched in a system based on the workloads. The µServers are packaged in a hot-swappable cartridge form factor that is about the size of a 3.5-inch hard disk drive. They utilize Intel Broadwell Xeon processors, DDR4 DRAM and dual SATA or NVMe solid state drives (SSDs). Storage I/O is non-blocking based on its support for both SATA at 12 Gbps (6 Gbps per SSD) and NVMe at 64 Gbps (32 Gbps per SSD), with latencies of 100 microseconds (µs) and 10 µs, respectively.
