Blade Servers
General questions about ExtremeNode Linux cluster

1. Do you have Dual-Xeon configurations available ?

Yes, we offer both dual Xeon and dual Opteron configurations.

2. Does the rackmount enclosure provide power to blades, or does each blade require separate power ?

One of the key concepts behind ExtremeNode Linux cluster design is the independence. Each ExtremeNode Linux cluster has its own set of power source. In addition, each blade unit has its own power plug. This gives users the ability to turn on or off each blade servers independenlty though a remote access device.

3. Are ExtremeNode hot-swappable, in that removing one blade doesn't require downtime on other blades ?

As described on FAQ #2, our ExtremeNode Linux cluster does not use a power distribution back plan. Thus, you don't need to shut down other blade server in order to service individual blade server.

4. What integrated services does the enclosure provide ? (KVM, Ethernet hub, Power, etc..)

Our ExtremeNode blade enclosure currently does not offer integrated KVM, Ethernet hub or management modules. You can use our RLK150-8KVM LCD monitor to gain access to each ExtremeNode Linux cluster. More integrated services will be available soon.

5. Do you have price matrix available for academic institutions ?

Yes, we do offer special pricing for academic institutions. Please call for detail information.

The key design concept behind ExtremeNode Linux cluster is the flexability. You can mix and match any EN2400 dual Xeon with EN6400 dual Opteron blade servers together.
