The following table outlines the features and components of the 670 Data Mart Appliance platform.
One Dell R720 chassis with:
The 670C HDD-only configuration has:
The 670H hybrid configuration (SSD and HDD drives) has the following pre-defined SSD:HDD configurations:
|Full Disk Encryption (FDE)||The 670C platform (HDD only) supports full disk encryption for all database node disks, storage disks, and server disks in the cabinet. FDE is not available for the SSDs in the 670H platform (hybrid system with SSDs and HDDs).|
|Teradata Managed Server (TMS)||TMSs consist of a Dell R720, Dell
R720xd, or Dell R710 servers used for solution offerings that are
peripheral to Teradata processing.
All Teradata managed servers have onboard connectivity to the server management network. They can also be connected to BYNET V5 switches.
If the option to connect to a BYNET V5 switch is used, port consumption ramifications should be considered.
For information about Dell R720, Dell R720xd, or Dell R710 TMS configurations, see the Teradata Platform Framework Cabinet Model 12 Product and Site Preparation Guide, B035-5388.
|Dump Server||Dell R720xd server, configured as
dedicated hardware to be used for crash dump data analysis.
Data can be offloaded from the production data warehouse environment to a dump server, allowing for analysis without disruption to the production system. The dump server must run the same version of Teradata Database as the production system from which the dump data was offloaded.
Each dump server consists of:
One portable USB DVD ROM drive is included per system to be used by a Dell R720xd dump server. The product ID number for the USB DVD ROM drive kit is 2021-K944-V001. The kit includes instructions for using the drive.
SAS disk storage adapter:
BYNET V5 InfiniBand adapter:
Host channel adapters:
|Virtualized Management Server (VMS)||A virtualized management server
(VMS) is an Intel SR1625 chassis or Intel R1208 chassis (one VMS per
670 C/H system). A VMS can host the following virtual machines
An Intel SR1625 VMS is available in a System VMS configuration. Each Intel SR1625 VMS manages one 670C or 670H system and consists of:
An Intel R1208 VMS is available in a System VMS configuration. Each Intel R1208 VMS manages one 670C or 670H system and consists of:
|Server Management Web (SMWeb) Services||Server management functions run
on the CMIC VM (on a VMS). One CMIC VM is designated as the single
operational view (SOV) CMIC. The SOV CMIC hosts the SMWeb Services
Home page and provides applications and services for server
management on an MPP system:
For use by customer on-site staff members, Teradata Services Analysts in the Global Support Center (GSC), and Teradata Customer Service Representatives.
SMWeb 10.01 and Teradata ServiceConnect are required for 670 systems.
For information about using SMWeb Services, see the Teradata Server Management Web Services User Guide, B035-5350, or the online help on the SMWeb Services home page.
|Enterprise Service Workstation (SWS)||Teradata Dell R720 or R710
workstation dedicated to system servicing and maintenance. Systems
with an SR1625 System VMS and more than 64 disk arrays, or an R1208
System VMS and more than 128 disk arrays, require dedicated
Enterprise SWS hardware (rather than a VMS with an SWS virtual
machine). For systems that use dedicated Enterprise SWS hardware,
the SWS hardware resides in a TMS cabinet.
The level of service depends on the service agreement between Teradata and the customer.
|Enterprise Viewpoint Server||Teradata Dell R720 or R710 server
that hosts the Viewpoint portal that contains portlets for customer
management of the Teradata Database. Systems with more than 128
nodes require dedicated Enterprise Viewpoint hardware (rather than a
VMS with a Viewpoint virtual machine). For systems that use
dedicated Enterprise Viewpoint hardware, the Viewpoint hardware can
reside in a TMS cabinet.
|Keyboard, Video, Mouse (KVM) Console||One KVM supports one to three 670C or 670H systems in any combination. The KVM has VGA and USB connections to the VMS.|
Cabinets are pre-wired for up to three 670C or 670H systems in any combination, and up to four TMSs. A cable harness is provided for server management Ethernet per node.
Openings in cabinet sides near the rear of the rack accommodate inter-rack cabling.
|AC Power Subsystem||
SLES 10 SP3 OS:
SLES 11 OS, 670H and 670C systems: Teradata Database Release 14.00.02.x
