The Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse 6800 platform is made up of a combination of cabinet types, depending on the system configuration:
|6800 Processing/Storage Cabinet||
A 6800H processing/storage cabinet contains one clique and can contain one of the following configurations:
A 6800C cabinet can contain one of the following configurations:
Other chassis in the cabinet provide power and server management functionality. In some configurations the cabinet can also contain optional PE nodes, channel servers, and TMS servers.
For systems scalable to a maximum of 18 Teradata Database nodes, 1+1 and 2+1 clique cabinets contain two 36-port BYNET V5 InfiniBand switches (BYNET V5 interconnect). For 3+1 clique cabinets, the two 36-port switches are housed in a Platform Framework Cabinet.
|BYNET V5 Cabinet
(BYNET V5 Interconnect)
Each BYNET V5 cabinet contains one or two InfiniBand switches, depending on the configuration. AC boxes in the cabinet provide power. Ethernet switches provide server management functionality.
System configurations larger than 324 nodes (to a maximum of 1,024 nodes) are accommodated by special order.
|Platform Framework Cabinet
The PFC can contain any combination of channel servers, ECS servers, TMS servers, and other switches, plus BAR storage. In some 6800 configurations, the System VMS, KVM, and BYNET V5 36-port switches are housed in the PFC. The PFC can also be used to support system configurations that require a dedicated Service Workstation server or Viewpoint server. Other chassis in the cabinet provide power and server management functionality.
