Innovation at the edge

CDDC

Compact Deployable data centre

CDDC enables high performance compute platforms to exist and function at the edge. CDDC provides a hyper-converged platform that can be managed via an integrated software defined controller. This enables proactive persistent management of the CDDC environment as well as 'zero-touch' builds and re-builds of the virtual environment and services.

CDDC marries the latest data centre technology and systems and packages them to work at the edge with minimal set up or management.

CDDC Strike

CDDC-S (Strike) is the smaller of the CDDC variants. It enables a low size, weight and power footprint for a converged platform. Using Intel or AMD embedded processors across four compute nodes connected at 10Gbps via a Cisco or Dell L2/L3 switch.

CDDC eXtreme

CDDC-X (eXtreme) pushes the latest data centre technology to the edge to enable data processing, video encoding, AI and Machine learning, as well as the power to support hundreds of local connected users in disadvantaged communications environments. CDDC enables GPUs and other PCIe devices to be added as required with Dell or Mellanox switches providing 100Gbps interconnects to form a high speed platform.

Differentiators

.01

High Performance

CDDC sets new standards for pushing high performance compute environments to the Edge. Using cutting edge data centre technology packaged in robust containment.

.02

Converged

Designed as a converged platform, CDDC supports all the leading converged platforms and architectures, including VMWare and Microsoft.

.03

Secure

Security is baked into the overall design of CDDC. From the removable storage modules can be encrypted to the detection of tamper on any of the CDDC units. Persistent physical security is critical for edge devices, CIMS enables this within CDDC.

.04

Designed for the Edge

High performance systems are typically designed for an air conditioned data centre and expected to function at the edge in harsh environments. CDDC is designed to work in these environments, with IP66 protection for dust and water and wide temperature ranges.

CDISC

Compact Deployable information services capability

CDISC was designed from the ground up to enable flexible, adaptable and scalable systems for edge based computing. The CDISC platform spans capability from remote low powered IoT devices (CDISC Edge) through to sensor hubs and full motion video processing, data analysis and tactical cloud provision for hundreds of local users.

Differentiators

.01

Scalable

CDISC was designed to scale from its outset. This is either within a unit such as memory or storage, but also by joining units together to form scaled platforms using virtualisation technologies to enable shared environments and pooling of resources.

.02

Modular

CDISC is made up of reusable modules (building blocks). Much like scaffolding it is possible to use CDISC to acheive a wide range of outcomes, all from the same underpinning modular building blocks.

.03

Adaptable

CDISC has been designed so it can be used for a wide range of uses. It does that by being scalable, modular but also adaptable. This might be by adding a network switch or a router via the Removeable Network Module or additional compute for virtualised network functions.

.04

Portable

The ability to lift, carry, transport, store, rack or mount CDISC was a key design metric. We know that edge devices need to be portable so the can be used in the environments they were designed. To us, portability is mesaure of size, weight and an objects overall dimensions.
