Cy7 7-node ARM based Storage Server


Cy7 7-node ARM based Storage Server

No: Cy7


Product of Partnership with





Model No. CySeven
0.5U/1U Rack Mount 7 Nodes ARM Micro Server

The “cellular” architecture of CY7 is designed to allow infinite scale computing with no single points of failure. Each computing module is a network node of his own; internal interconnection keeps communication between the nodes, while outside/cluster connectivity is provided by two ethernet interfaces. When used for Cloud storage it scales linearly in capacity AND speed with the addition of more units. Best used in a “fail & play” model where the the failure of some of the computing/storage nodes is accounted from the start: failed equipment is simply turned off, not serviced or repaired by technicians, lowering the TCO of the solution. Open Source friendly and fully Linux compatible it uses the first ARM processor natively supported by the standard Linux Vanilla kernel: no need to install vendor patches and/or customized (often not current) customized kernels/distros.
