CDDC 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, Cisco or Mellanox switches providing up tp 100Gbps interconnects to form a high speed platform.
Based on the latest AMD EPYC CPUs, its possible to configure up to 64 cores per socket, with up to 2TB of DDR4 RAM per compute node. Storage can be on configured using a mix of NVMe and SATA SSDs, with RAID / HBA options. PCIe devices may be connected to each of the compute node to add GPU / NPU / FPGA capabilities as required.
Each CDDC edge platform includes our CIMS Intelligence platform to enable proactive management and monitoring of edge devices.
CDDC sets new standards for pushing high performance compute environments to the Edge. Using cutting edge data centre technology packaged in robust containment.
Designed as a converged platform, CDDC supports all the leading converged platforms and architectures, including VMWare and Microsoft.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
