Open19 Platform Building Blocks
The platform has main three common elements
The brick cage comes in two sizes 12 rack units (RU) and 8 rack units. The Brick cage is a passive sheet metal element that sets the form factor and creates the snap-in openings for the cables.
Each 2 rack units can be converted to take four bricks (half wide) two double wide bricks, two half width double high bricks or one double wide double high brick.
Two power shelf options, 9,6kW 1 rack unit and 19.2kW 2 rack units. Every two cages use a 9.6kW enabling up to 400w per brick when utilizing power management or 250w per brick without power management. The power shelf can take any AC or DC input and produces high efficiency 12v output.
The shelf supports A/B and 2N redundancy for a high availability environments.
Each brick 12v output is fully protected and monitored.
The power shelf has a dual controller and GE management ports.
The platform uses a 3.2T switch for every two cages enabling initially 50G per server with an additional 50G provisioned at 25G signaling. The Open19 switch also has 800G of standard QSFP connectors for uplinks and non-Open19 gear.
The Open19 platform can also accommodate a standard QSFP based 3.2T switch while maintaining the blind-mate connection to the servers.
The platform supports four form factors
The brick server is a 1 rack unit half width server, it can accommodate up to 100G of connectivity and 400w of power. It is fully blind mates (data and power) to the snap-on cables.
Double Wide Brick
The Double Wide brick server is a 1 rack unit server, it can accommodate up to 200G of connectivity and 800w of power. It is fully blind mates (data and power) to the snap-on cables.
Double High Half Width Brick - New
The Double High Half width brick server is a 2 rack unit half width server, it can accommodate up to 200G of connectivity and 800w of power. It is fully blind mates (data and power) to the snap-on cables.
Double High Double Wide Brick
The Double High Double Wide brick server is a 2 rack unit full width server, it can accommodate up to 400G of connectivity and 1600 of power. It is fully blind mates (data and power) to the snap-on cables.
