Klas Telecom, a company that specializes in designing modular and scalable IP networking communications systems for environments where low size, weight and power (SWaP) are required, has announced that in a recent exercise for the US Department of Defense (DoD), the 63-pound Voyager Tactical Data Center (Voyager TDC) enabled operational forces to deploy everything required for an enterprise-grade combat data distribution network in one small form factor, carry-on-size rollaway case, the company said.
The “data-center-in-a-box” Voyager TDC system is certified to the commonly required MIL-STD-810G test methods for environmental protection and comes complete with the following components: four server nodes totaling 32 cores, 512 GB RAM and 125 TB of storage (enough storage and compute to allocate an entire node for built-in redundancy); validated hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and software-defined storage architecture; a tactical switch that provides 10 Gbps networking connectivity between the system´s nodes; 110 mm NVMe; an uninterruptible power supply (UPS); integrated battery backup and wide ranging AC/DC power input.
During the exercise for the US DoD, the Voyager TDC allowed expeditionary teams to easily deploy a tactical compute and data storage network that served as an extension of their enterprise architecture, allowing local access to email file servers, critical applications and data.
