  • System consists of one or two cabinets.
  • System cabinets contain IntelliFlex processing nodes and storage.
  • Cabinet 1 contains a system VMS for Server Management.
  • System cabinets may contain a variety of channel servers, PE nodes, SAS HPA worker nodes (Dell R720, R730, or R730xd), SAS worker nodes (Dell R740xd), or TMSs (power and space limitations apply).
  • System is scalable up to 14 processing nodes.
  • Two 36-port InfiniBand switches provide redundant InfiniBand networks (Network-0 and Network-1).
  • Each node contains a dual-port InfiniBand adapter that connects to the InfiniBand switches.
  • If the system is included in a UDA environment, some ports on the InfiniBand switch are used for UDA connections. The number of ports needed depends on the UDA configuration. For more information, see the Teradata┬« Unified Data Architecture InfiniBand and Server Management Configuration Guide.
