Half Rack Width Compute Node
Half Rack Width (HRW) Compute Nodes bring a robust enterprise-class cloud computing to the tactical edge of network applications. The HRW CN provides robust computing and real-time data processing at the tactical edge, resulting in reduced command and control (C2) latency and improved situational awareness.
HRW Compute Nodes are small form factor enterprise-class Intel Xeon D2100 processor-based servers with enough processing power, memory and storage to support running multiple virtual machines (VMs) on a single piece of hardware. HRW CN significantly reduce the overall size, weight, power consumption and cost of deployable, large-scale communications solutions. Providing support for most hypervisors and hyper-converged hypervisors, the potential applications and use cases for the Compute Nodes are endless.
Virtual Machine Hypervisors
HRW CN’s support an array of commercially available hypervisors and hyper-converged hypervisors, software-based IP networking appliance virtual machines (VMs), and application- based VMs. Supported hypervisors include VMware (ESXi), Microsoft (Hyper-V), Nutanix, Citrix (XEN), IAS ROS, Cisco (NFVIS), and Linux (KVM).
Scalability with Tactical Field Office
The HRW CN is one of the family of Half Rack Width appliances designed for use as standalone desktop appliances, within the Expeditionary Networking Kit (XNK) 2U or 3U Chassis System or the XNK–MINI, a carbon fiber VIP roller board case that is small enough to stow in an aircraft overhead storage bin.
HRW CNs offer a removable disk drive cartridge that holds up to four 2.5” spindle or SSD drives. The cartridge feature allows a user to remove all drives in a single module quickly and easily without tools, simplifying the transportation of compute modules used on classified networks, as all non-volatile memory is removed.
HRW Xeon D1500 Compute Node
Half Rack Width (HRW) Xeon D1500 Compute Nodes bring a robust enterprise-class cloud computing to the tactical edge of network applications. The HRW-CN 1500 provides robust computing and real-time data processing at the tactical edge, resulting in reduced command and control (C2) latency and improved situational awareness.
