We are currently building nanoclusters in several locations worldwide, including here in Dublin. Somehow the lab guys have come up with a way to get pureScale to work on about $500 worth of hardware! Respect!
The nanocluster is a pureScale cluster built on 3 intel Atom boxes with 1 acting as storage and running the demo software, the other two having one CF and one member on each. Gigabit ethernet is used between the nodes.
The nanoclusters (obviously) do not consist of a supported configuration and are not for production use.
Nanoclusters are a great way to get pureScale out there for demos and for clients, ISVs and partners to try it out for themselves. The cluster comes pre-packaged with demos and instructional software.
If you want to get your hands on one of these little beauties. Please contact your friendly local sales, avalanche teams or me for more information or a demo.
Unfortunately we can't give the nanoclusters out on loan for extended periods but we will also be releasing instructions and code to allow you to build your own.
