Awnix ARC-96

The ARC-96 is the entry-level Engineered System from Awnix.  It is comprised of 3 hyperconverged compute nodes, 2 x 10GbE leaf switches (optional addition of 2 x 40Gbe switches), and all necessary controllers and other equipment described in the components section. It’s top of rack networking is designed for scale and is capable of handling the addition of many more nodes to the cluster to upgrade the ARC-96 to an ARC-320 or ARC-640, without the need to rip-and-replace any of the original infrastructure and which can be done while the cluster is online.
