Modular Data Center Solutions For Dynamic Business Environments

Modular Data Center Solutions For Dynamic Business Environments

The Internet of Things (IoT) has redefined the way we consume infotainment, and how we live our life day-to-day. Whether it is streaming a video, paying bills, or planning your next vacation, data is the source of these transactions. In short, we need data instantaneously which has made it imperative to have consistently reliable data centers.

Statista, the statistics portal that sources from 18,000 sources on an average, reported a mind-boggling growth of mobile users worldwide. The number of smartphone users is projected to grow from 1.5 billion in 2014 to five billion by 2019. That is over 36 percent of the world projected to use a smartphone! This catapults data consumption and the dependence on data centers into a much higher league.

To keep up with the demand and to stay abreast of new technologies, many companies are investing heavily into the lifeline of their businesses and are turning to data center experts for cost effective and scalable solutions. One solution that has been used by big data companies since 2009, are Modular Data Center’s (MDC).  Data Center Knowledge defines Modular Data Centers as, “An approach to data center design that implies either a prefabricated data center module or a deployment method for delivering data center infrastructure in a modular, quick and flexible method.”

Major forces driving the flexible data center market include:

  • The surge in demand for low Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE)
  • The need to reduce operational expenditure
  • The need for scalability
  • The ease in operations and maintenance

The modular data center market is growing rapidly because of the increasing number of users opting for high-performance and energy efficient data centers. According to the research agency Markets and Markets, the worldwide market for plug-and-play data centers and related equipment will grow from $8.37 billion in 2015 to $35.11 billion by 2020. North America will be the largest modular data center market in terms of size, while Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to emerge as a high-growth market.

Rahi Systems has recognized the need for flexible data centers, and has developed a suite of IT infrastructure solutions that cut deployment time by 40 percent or more. FlexITTM is a unique line of IT infrastructure products that are pre-engineered and ready to install. With FlexITTM organizations can create a dust-free, space-optimized IT environment virtually anywhere.

Rahi Systems Introduces Hyper-Converged Server  Solution for Web-Scale IT Environments

Rahi Systems Introduces Hyper-Converged Server Solution for Web-Scale IT Environments

FlexIT R Series Server Delivers Modular Compute and Storage Architecture with multi-generational Intel architecture.

Fremont, Calif. — July 11, 2016 — Rahi Systems has introduced the FlexIT R Series Server, a modular hyper-converged server with high density compute and storage in a 1 U form factor.

The FlexIT R Series Server includes separate compute, storage, and power blocks providing the ability to change the blocks without affecting the rest of the system.

This allows for the system to transcend multiple generations of Intel architectures by easily swapping the system board versus requiring an entire infrastructure change.

“With the FlexIT R Series Server, system board replacement becomes a tool-less operation,” said Paul Weber, Vice President of Engineering, Rahi Systems. “If anything on the system tray fails, the operator simply slides it out, then slides in a new one. The server is back up and running in minutes. In addition, we have developed interchangeable system boards that are designed for forward compatibility, making the FlexIT R Series Server a truly future-proof solution that can evolve with changing needs.”

The FlexIT R Series Server packs web-scale functionality in a slim, 1U form factor. The solution features a 16-gigbit channel bus, one of the fastest buses on the market, as well as built-in 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, a 1 Gigabit dedicated management port, SAS expansion ports, two full height PCIe expansion slots, OCP mezzanine slot, multiple USB ports and an optional second power supply. It can accommodate eight full-sized hot-swappable disk drives, and includes dual external SAS ports for use with an attached storage appliance.

“From a networking perspective, the FlexIT R Series Server is highly flexible. It includes dual 10Gbps SFP modules and a mezzanine card capable of 40Gbps or 100Gbps,” Paul said. “Customers can easily move from current 1Gbps and 10Gbps network infrastructure to multiple 10Gbps or 40Gbps.”

The FlexIT R Series Server is the latest addition to Rahi’s FlexIT product line, featuring pre-engineered, integrated infrastructure solutions that can be deployed quickly and easily at any site. FlexIT solutions include individual rack enclosures, Mini Data Centers and Modular Data Centers that reduce costs, increase agility and accelerate time-to-market.
