GNP offers additions to ComputeNode family. (Breaking News).
GNP has announced additions to its ComputeNode series of compact,
carrier-grade multislot cPCI solutions. ComputeNode2U ComputeNode3U and
ComputeNode4U provide network equipment providers (NEPs) with the
high-density and horizontal scalability necessary to build or expand
carrier-grade servers for DNS, firewall, Web-hosting, softswitches,
media gateways and controllers for IP, wireless, optical or any other
mission-critical network systems. The ComputeNode series offers the slot
density to allow NEPs to add storage, I/O interface cards, additional
processors, Ethernet switches and expansion cards to network servers.
GNP's cooling-system is designed to dissipate the heat generated by
high power consumption CPU boards and the new cPCI cards designed for
high density and high performance. The cooling is achieved using
hot-swappable fans mounted between the cards and power supplies, rather
than the conventional approach of mounting the fans at either end. A
built-in alarm card provides basic alarming features lik e fan, power
monitoring and status LED, without requiring a separate cPCI slot. The
ComputeNode products are configurable with various processors (Sun,
Intel, PowerPC and custom-designed).
