The Genstor HA cluster solution is a high availability, business continuous, load balancing solution that allows two servers to be connected forming a cluster. The function of this cluster is to keep data flowing even if one of the servers fails. This failover mechanism is built on redundancy and employ functions such as:
Genstor HA based clusters can be configured for one of two operational modes: Dual Active and Hot Standby.
Dual Active: Both servers share the workload. If one of the servers fails, the remaining server automatically starts carrying the full workload.
Hot Standby: One server is online carrying the full workload and the other server is in a hot standby mode. If the online server should fail, the standby server will automatically come online to take over the workload.
Genstor now offers a “Cluster-In-A-Box” solution. Included in the cluster is 2 server boards connected to a common pool of 16 drives. The system employs a dual 10GbE connection between the server boards via the midplane. If one server board fails, the other server board can take over control and access the drives, keeping the system up and running. The two controllers can also work in Dual Active mode. This feature is available with optional storage software.
Genstor HPC cluster solutions are customized to customer requirements and budget. Our HPC clusters are based on a 1u/4 node arrangement, using Intel 3000 series Xeon CPUs or AMD 6100 series CPUs for up to 48 cores and support for up to 512GB of memory per node. Our solutions offer a variety of interconnects allowing low latency for cost-effective performance, ensuring we can provide the best solution while remaining within your budget.
Memory architecture is versatile. Large DIMM sizes are more cost-effective now making caching and diskmem using memory extremely appealing. We offer a variety of GPU options to broaden our cluster capabilities and offload many processes from the main CPUs.
