BYNET V5 Network Topology for a Maximum 324-Node System

  • Consists of one or more 6750 processing/storage cabinets, a VMS with SWS VM or a Service Workstation (SWS), plus additional (optional or required) Platform Framework Cabinets.
  • Scalable from 1 to 324 total Teradata Database nodes, hot standby nodes, PE nodes, channel servers, and TMSs in any combination.
  • Two BYNET V5 cabinets provide redundant BYNET V5 networks (Network-0 and Network-1). Each cabinet contains one 324-port BYNET V5 switch.
  • Each 324-port BYNET V5 switch contains 1 to 18 leaf boards. Each leaf board supports up to 18 Teradata Database nodes, hot standby nodes, PE nodes, channel servers, and TMSs. Each switch has 9 spine boards that allow the leaf boards to communicate with each other, and one chassis management board for managing the network.
  • Each Teradata Database node, hot standby node, PE node, or channel server contains a dual port InfiniBand adapter that connects to the BYNET V5 switch in each BYNET V5 cabinet. A TMS may contain a dual port InfiniBand adapter that connects to the switches.
  • Individual optical InfiniBand cables are used to connect Teradata Database nodes, hot standby nodes, PE nodes, channel servers, and TMSs in expansion cabinets, or channel servers and TMSs in (optional or required) Platform Framework Cabinets, to the BYNET V5 switches in each BYNET V5 cabinet.
  • For port-to-port cabling, see the appropriate Hardware Installation Guide.
