Press Release March 7, 2017 sro 1708 Schroff ServCite Rack Pentair at the OCP U.S. Summit 2017 ____________________________________________________________ Warwick, R.I. – Pentair, a leading manufacturer of embedded systems, is presenting the new Schroff ServCite rack based on the highly efficient OCP (Open Compute Project) concept at the OCP U.S. Summit 2017 in Santa Clara, Calif., on March 8 and 9. The ServCite rack has been developed specifically to meet the stringent requirements of the telecommunications industry for shock and vibration resistance, high availability and reliable cooling capacity. Compared to other products typically used in the telecommunications industry such as AdvancedTCA, the Schroff ServCite rack has significantly higher data processing and/or storage density. The Schroff ServCite rack is developed in accordance with the new CG-OpenRack-19 specification. OCP is an initiative among members of the global IT and related communities for developing specifications and designs for the most energy efficient and economical data center possible. There are, however, additional requirements for environmental and mechanical durability in the telecommunications industry that are not covered in the OCP guidelines. The Schroff ServCite rack is built on the ideas developed by the OCP and also meets the mechanical and thermal requirements of the telecommunications industry. The ServCite rack can accommodate ToR (Top of Rack) switches, a power supply unit with pluggable PSUs, a rack agent as well as shelves for CPU and storage plug-in units (also known as Compute and Storage sleds) and includes the ability to seamlessly mesh traditional 19-inch devices with dedicated server sleds in the same rack. The number of compute and storage sleds in use, and thus the computing power or storage density, can vary depending on the requirement. Seventeen Storage sleds, with the ability to hold up to 24 hard drives with up to 8 TB of storage capacity, can be housed in one standard Schroff ServCite rack. If the rack is equipped exclusively with Compute sleds, 34 sleds fit into a rack. All Compute sleds can be equipped with two half SSI server main boards, each with two bases. This makes it possible to install up to 136 Xeon processors in the rack. Heat is dissipated from the components as a result of straight airflow from front to rear and optional backdoor cooling. Conventional 19-inch systems usually require directed air cooling with at least two changes in direction. The straight airflow in the ServCite rack and the sleds is more efficient and reduces the amount of space needed for redirecting air in the system. That space is then available for additional electronic components. Media Contacts: Kelley Schreiber (NEXT Precision Marketing). Phone: 952-443-6400. Email: email@example.com.

While every component requires redundant implementation in conventional systems such as AdvancedTCA, storage and data processing are installed in a Schroff ServCite rack with excess capacity of just 10 percent. If a hard drive, processor or even a sled fails, the task is simply transferred to another server. Some functions such as the power supply, current conversion and switches still feature 100 percent redundancy. Pentair offers a wide range of possibilities for customized designs in the selection and specification of a Schroff ServCite rack. This new technology is based on the standard range of highly robust and efficient Schroff Varistar cabinets. The mechanical system of the sleds is based on the modular design of the Schroff Interscale M case with EMC shielding.
