Awnix ARC-500P

The ARC-500P is a 2U self-contained “Cloud-in-a-box” that is portable and is an excellent solution for those use cases where a full data center rack is not required, such as: a Cloud starter-kit, remote offices, temporary command posts, downrange deployments, DevOps, and more…

The ARC-500P can host upwards of 500 virtual instances and also incorporates all of the Software Defined Networking features and functionality found in the ARC-96, ARC-320, and ARC-640.   It is comprised of 3 hyperconverged compute nodes, 1 hyperconverged controller node, and 2 storage nodes.

Additionally, it is upgradable to a full rack without the need to replace the unit!
