VadaTech Supplies MicroTCA Cloud Computing Platform
VadaTech has started shipping a novel chassis designed specifically for application server platforms. As well as meeting the cost and reliability requirements of cloud computing, the chassis is carefully engineered for thermal performance.The MicroTCA architecture is implemented with VadaTech’s modular infrastructure products, allowing field-proven software to be used for platform management and remote monitoring capability.
“The cost metrics applying in the data centre, where rack space is a premium, led us to come up with a radical design approach,” notes Saeed Karamooz, founder and CEO of VadaTech. “The result puts MicroTCA architecture into a 2U high chassis capable of housing over 40 multicore processors and dissipating over 1000W. It’s fortunate that we are already expanding our production capacity, since demand for this unit is significantly higher than for more traditional configurations.”
The chassis, due to ship in quantities of 1000 a month, implements the MicroTCA architecture while bringing innovation to the physical implementation. This results in a cost-optimised product suitable for high-volume deployment in data and communication centres. The system is fully supported by ScorpionWare system manager, providing a secure, robust and intuitive GUI for managing deployed systems.
