MDC1000 is a disaggregated hyper converged hybrid compute, hybrid storage, hybrid network, and acceleration system. MDC1000 is built on MDC Super Computer Fabric, which is a low latency fabric(150ns) and has 9.6 terabits of switching capacity and it delivers near-infiniband performance at price of Ethernet switch. The system has universal slots which can accommodate server/ storage/GPU/FPGA/DSP cartridges.
With up to 72 processors and integrated ToR switch in 10U form factor, MDC1000 saves rack space when compared to traditional 1U servers. The integrated ToR switch also reduces significant cabling resources required to connect the processors together on a network.
|Chassis||Supporting 36 server cartridges, this versatile chassis shares power, cooling, network uplinks and datacenter acceleration modules. Its 10U from factor allows 4 chassis per rack.|
|Server Cartridges||Used for web serving, hosted desktops, e-commerce servers, video transcoding, HADOOP, Openstack and mini HPC clusters.|
|Network Switches and Uplinks||It has a built-in switching capacity of 9.6Tbps. It supports 24 Uplinks of 10/40 Gbps to interface with enterprise networks. The TOR switch is eliminated by the MDC1000 Switch Fabric. Each node is connected to each other by 32/64 Gbps network. It has the capacity to accommodate six switch cards and each supports upto 1.6 Tbps switching capacity and can be configured in 3+3 redundancy mode.|
|Storage Cartridges||It can accommodate up to 36 storage cartridges and each of them can hold four 2.5” Enterprises SATA or SAS hard drives. Optionally, it can also accommodate two 3.5” Enterprises SATA or SAS drives. It also has the capacity to accommodate NMVe storage cards.|
|GPU Cartridges||This has the provision to hold a maximum of 36 GPU cartridges. They can be shared across multiple server nodes. MDC1000 is the first device in the industry to support this feature.|
|FPGA Cartridges||It can accommodate up to 36 FPGA cartridges. They can be shared across multiple server nodes. MDC1000 is the first device in the industry to support this feature.|
