DCK Video: Hyve Partners DDN and Nebula
February 7th, 2014 By: Colleen Miller
Hyve Solutions is partnering with a number of vendors in the Open Compute Project. Last week at the Open Compute Summit V in San Jose, California, we spoke with Conor Malone, vice president of engineering at Hyve, and he showed us what storage provider Data Direct Networks, and Nebula, an open source cloud company, are doing with Hyve chassis and servers.
This video runs 4:15 minutes. More details after the jump.
Malone gives a brief tour of gear located in partner booths at the OCP event. Data Direct Networks partnered with Hyve Solutions, and produced a high capacity, high performance storage unit with 12 6TB Helium drives from HGST, with a boot drive as well as their software layer. The unit has the upfront connections for ease of serviceability, enhanced cooling capability and reducing the energy required to run and cool the unit.
Also, cloud company Nebula was running a full demo of its cloud controller and Hyve’s hardware at partner LSI’s booth. Ben Broderick Phillips, software engineer, runs through the demo hardware that is running. Malone gives a close-up walkthrough of the components on the Hvye 1300 unit.
