Heavy Data Systems
On top of building servers and desktops for the business sector, Compucon has been doing optimized rack systems and heavy data systems for over 7 years with reasonable success. Optimized rack systems refer to multiple computing nodes in one single chassis such as 4 nodes in 2U, 24 nodes in 3U and 40 nodes in 7U. These nodes share a lot of physical resources and reduce space rental and consumption of electricity as ongoing costs of ownership. Heavy data systems refer to having a large number of commodity hard disks in a chassis such as 12D in 1U and 72D in 4U. These systems can be deployed as DAS or NAS, using hardware RAID or software ZFS, in medium to large size businesses including data centers. At the small scale end, we have a multitude of micro servers as small as a desk drawer for installation in mobile or remote environments. This session will attempt to provide a summary of the above product ranges and assist our peers to obtain clarity of the vast amount of knowledge needed to deploy these systems. We will explain a new technology called “zero slot” coming out any time now.
