Virtualized Management Server (VMS) A virtualized management server (VMS) is an Intel R1208 chassis. A VMS can host the following virtual machines (VMs):
  • CMIC -- The CMIC provides server management services for the system cabinets.
  • SWS -- The SWS is the service entry for the system.
  • Viewpoint -- The Viewpoint VM manages only a single Hadoop cluster or a single Aster cluster.

An Intel R1208 VMS is available in System VMS and Cabinet VMS configurations. Each Teradata Appliance for Hadoop 3 and 4 cabinet and InfiniBand switch cabinet contains a System or Cabinet VMS.

Each System VMS consists of:

  • CMIC, SWS, and Viewpoint VMs. The Viewpoint VM can support up to 128 nodes and servers.
  • Two 2.0 GHz six-core 15MB L3 cache E5-2620 processors, dual socket
  • 64 GB memory using 8 GB DIMMs
  • Two 600 GB RAID 1 drives for boot/system operations
  • Two 600 GB RAID 1 drives for Viewpoint data storage (optional)
  • Onboard connectivity to server management network
  • Onboard or adapter connectivity to customer network
  • OS: Linux SLES 11 OS on VMS, CMIC VM, SWS, and Viewpoint VMs

Each Cabinet VMS consists of:

  • CMIC VM
  • One 2.0 GHz six-core 15MB L3 cache E5-2620 processor, dual socket
  • 32 GB memory using 8 GB DIMMs
  • Two 600 GB RAID 1 drives for boot/system operations
  • Onboard connectivity to server management network
  • Onboard or adapter connectivity to customer network
  • Linux SLES 11 OS on VMS and CMIC VM
Server Management Web (SMWeb) Services Server management functions run on the CMIC VM (on a VMS). The CMIC hosts the SMWeb Services Home page and provides applications and services for server management on an MPP system:
  • Server Management Client: Monitor status, display events, and perform commands from a single operational view of the system.
  • Command Line Interface: Download remote command line interface utilities
  • Save and Restore: Download, upload, and view configuration files
  • Users and Groups: Manage user and group security levels
  • Network, Devices, and CMICs: Configure the server management network and device management
  • External Connections: Configure settings for communication to the Service Workstation (TVI connection) and the Viewpoint server (Teradata Alerts)

For use by customer on-site staff members, Teradata Services Analysts in the Global Support Center (GSC), and Teradata Customer Service Representatives.

SMWeb and Teradata ServiceConnect are required for Teradata systems. Teradata Appliance for Hadoop 3 and 4 platforms require SMWeb 11.02 or later.

For information about using SMWeb Services, see the Teradata Server Management Web Services User Guide, or the online help on the SMWeb Services home page.

Enterprise Viewpoint Server Dell R720 server that hosts the Viewpoint portal containing portlets for customer management of the system database. Systems that have more than 128 nodes require dedicated enterprise Viewpoint hardware (rather than a VMS with a Viewpoint virtual machine). The enterprise Viewpoint hardware can reside in a Hadoop/Aster cabinet or in a Platform Framework Cabinet.
  • Adapter connection to server management network
  • SLES 10 SP3 operating system
Keyboard, Video, Mouse (KVM) Console The KVM resides in the base processing/storage cabinet and has VGA and USB connections to the VMS.
AC Power Subsystem Teradata Appliance for Hadoop 3 and 4 cabinets:
  • Four PDUs, two on each inside rear panel of the cabinet.
  • Two or four AC feeder boxes inside the cabinet. Available AC feeder box types:
    • Three-phase Delta AC feeder box with a plug rated at 30A. Each cabinet has four AC feeder boxes; each AC feeder box has one power cord for a total of four power cords per cabinet.
    • Three-phase Delta AC feeder box with a plug rated at 60A. Each cabinet has two AC feeder boxes; each AC feeder box has one power cord for a total of two power cords per cabinet.
    • Three-phase Wye 230V L-N AC feeder box with a plug rated at 30A for North America and rated at 32A for Europe. Each cabinet has two AC feeder boxes; each AC feeder box has one power cord for a total of two power cords per cabinet. For use in North America, this AC feeder box requires a specialized data center with power wired like a data center in Europe.
InfiniBand switch cabinet:
  • Two AC boxes of the same type per cabinet, mounted side by side at the bottom of the cabinet.
  • For cabinets with 108-port, 162-port, or 324-port switches, the AC box type is a single-cord AC box with a plug rated at 30A for North America and rated at 32A for Europe. The plug is used for both single-phase (220-240V line-to-neutral) or phase-to-phase (208V) connections. Each cabinet has two AC boxes; each AC box has one power cord for a total of two power cords per cabinet.
