Escondido, Calif. - Millennium Gold from One Stop Systems is an 8U system offering telephony, wireless communications and Internet equipment-provider support for more boards and larger storage in a smaller space.
This CompactPCI system supports 13 peripheral pro-cessors, one system processor and up to 292 Gbytes of SCSI disk storage in an 8U rack height. Three individually hot-swappable fans below the card cage and three individually hot-swap blowers above it provide airflow. To ensure continuous operation, the system monitors up to six temperature sensors, voltage, tachometer of each fan and blower, dc current, blower speed and CPU with software watchdog. An optional removable front door covers the front of the enclosure.
The 64-bit system processor and peripheral processor boards are equipped with two low-power Pentium III mobile CPUs running at 500 to 800 MHz. They feature dual 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet, a PMC site, and USB, serial and parallel ports. Four 175-watt power supplies provide up to 525 W of total power in an N+1 configuration. The single-slot width allows the four 3U-size supplies to occupy only two slots in the card cage.
The four SCSI hard drives provide up to 73 Gbytes each, for a total storage capacity of 292 Gbytes. An SCA connector integrates the 68-pin wide-SCSI connector with the power and ground for that drive. By using an SCA connector for each drive shuttle, the drives can be hot swapped.
The system monitor includes an Internet-based interface that allows the service provider to oversee all aspects of the system while monitoring up to 120 additional systems that are connected to it via Ethernet. Functions that can be monitored include enclosure temperature, CPU heartbeat, fan and blower operation, fan rotation and the number of functioning boards in the system.
The Millennium Gold 8U system with 14-slot H.110 backplane, four 18-Gbyte SCSI drives, four double-slot-wide power supplies and two 500-MHz Pentium III CPUs lists for $14,098. An 8U system with 16-slot H.110 backplane, four 18-Gbyte SCSI drives, four single-slot-wide power supplies and a pair of 500-MHz Pentium IIIs lists for $15,478. Both systems are available now. OEM quantity pricing is offered.
