The CCSI Clusteron Cabinet
CCSI Clusteron Cabinet has been designed to be the perfect
cabinet for high performance clustering applications. Utilizing
CCSI Hexa-Side cooling, the CCSI Clusteron cabinet actively
participates in maintaining the optimum performance temperature
of your Clusteron appliance. You won't find a more technologically
advanced rack cabinet anywhere. The question we're most often asked
is "does the cabinet really make that much difference?"
and our answer is always yes. Inproper airflow within a rack cabinet
can render chassis airflow useless. The CCSI Clusteron cabinet
insures a constant supply of cool, fresh air to your rack mounted
CCSI Clusteron units. Combine the Clusteron cabinet
and the Clusteron 1U rack mounted cluster server and you have
the most high performance, reliable cluster appliance on the market.
unique automatic air damper system reroutes air flow when a node
is removed, so that air flow does not short-circuit, but still
flows through each node, providing adequate cooling, regardless
of how many nodes are present in the cabinet. This is crucial
in real-world conditions where a node may be removed for service,
and without the Clusteron™ air dampers, the remaining nodes could
overheat. and would otherwise disrupt air flow through.
Air filtration is optionally available for both the bottom and
Built-in slide shelf chassis mounting system includes the automatic
air dampers, and eliminates the cost and adjustment problems associated
with slide rail mounting systems.
Built-in load center and power distribution provides circuit breaker
protection, and access, right in the Clusteron™ cabinet, rather
than a remote panelboard. A single power connection is all that
Cable management provisions make it possible to route cables safely
and neatly out of the way. Knock-outs on the Clusteron™ cabinet
sides and back enable safe cable routing between cabinets.
door is perforated for air flow, and features a heavy duty lock
up to 36 nodes in one 24" by 24" cabinet, or 82 nodes, in 2 cabinets
mounted back to back. A Clusteron™ holding up to 36 nodes, (or 72
mounted back to back) will roll through a standard 6' 8" doorway.
access design allows Clusteron™ to be mounted against a wall, and
combined with the shallow depth, it allows 2 Clusterons to be mounted
back to back, to form a 24" by 48" unit.
heavy duty casters for easy relocation.
powder coat paint to resist nicks and scratches.
all heavy duty Steel, "dual hull" construction provides exceptional
rigidity as well as forming air tunnels and providing cable routing.
CCSI's Hexa-Side™ flow through cooling technology. Air is drawn
in from the bottom and front, and ducted through air tunnels to
the front and left sides of each node. The air is exhausted from
the right side and rear of each node, and ducted through air tunnels
to the top of the Clusteron™.
exhaust air can be ducted directly into the building return air
plenum from the Clusteron™ ventilation system, removing all of the
heat load from the server room
