Thu, 10/08/2009 - 12:09pm
Continuous Computing®, the only company deploying uniquely architected systems comprised of telecom platforms and Trillium® software, announce the availability of FlexTCA 3.0, the company's next generation of pre-integrated ATCA platforms that enable customers to roll out wireless and deep packet inspection (DPI) applications with reduced risk, cost and complexity. FlexTCA 3.0 brings together best-in-class ATCA components with advanced system software that now includes intuitive GUI-based Essential Services tools for managing deployed systems, the company's latest FlexCompute ATCA-XE60 compute blade, and an updated Service Availability Forum-compliant high availability middleware framework. FlexTCA 3.0 features new options, including combined AC/DC 2-slot chassis and AC/DC 6-slot chassis that empower customers to hold a single chassis configuration in stock for each size, rather than two chassis per size, and then fit AC or DC power entry modules depending on operator need. Such deployment flexibility reduces inventory costs and reduces lead times dramatically, making customers more cost-competitive.
