Compute and Storage Platform

Schroff ServCite Rack –

A new generation of speed, storage and data processing capacity

Modular Data Center Infrastructure Solutions

Pentair presents the new Schroff ServCite rack based on the highly efficient OCP (Open Compute Project) concept. The ServCite rack has been developed specifically to meet the stringent requirements of the telecommunications industry for shock and vibration resistance, redundancy and reliable cooling capacity. This open source rack-level hardware system comprises a rack with shelves, ToR (Top of Rack) switches, a power shelf, and sleds for computing or storage intensive applications.

Furthermore, this design innovations are being contributed to OCP as the CG-Openrack-19 specification.
