Server Clustering Nodes
What are server clustering nodes?
Server clustering nodes are configurations where arrays of non-host CPUs occupy the available chassis slots and operate as independent servers. The information from each server is collected and distributed to the IP network using embedded Ethernet switches. Server cluster nodes often act as call control nodes in a softswitch configuration.
What products does PT provide for this application?
PT's IPnexus Application-Ready System is an ideal foundation for building Server Clustering Nodes. This platform configuration includes:
Packet-based Platforms: Bundled with the industry's broadest line of 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet switches, comprehensive shelf management and high-density power supplies, these platforms give equipment manufacturers and system integrators the basis to go beyond five-nines availability while handling the high-performance computing requirements of next-generation, packet-based systems.
Single Board Computers: High-performance, standards-based application processors designed for carrier grade telecom and Internet applications requiring exceptional processing power and high availability.
Ethernet Switches: PICMG 2.16-compliant, that provide increased bandwidth, performance and reliability in high availability applications such as defense, IP telephony and broadband. These switches have been designed to make system integration easier, while maximizing network performance and flexibility.Enabling Software: NexusWare Software Suite: PT's Carrier Grade Linux distribution software.
