New Cooling Option for ZNYX Ultra5™ Platform Family Realized Through Collaboration with ASIS


Fremont, Calif., – December 17, 2013 –  ZNYX® Networks, an innovator of high density solution-enabled platforms for carrier-grade and mission critical environments, today announced the availability of an AdvancedTCA (ATCA) front-to-back cooled chassis in its mid-size Ultra5™ solution-enabled server blade platform. Through collaboration with ASIS-Pro, a global designer and manufacturer of complete enclosure systems for ATCA, CompactPCI and custom applications, ZNYX now delivers its award-winning Ultra5 platform to any environment with specific space limitations.

With the new chassis, the Ultra5 server blade platform now delivers front-to-back cooling required in many mission critical data center environments. Designed with Tier 1 carrier-grade applications in mind, the Ultra5 chassis features an integral AC and DC option; dual redundant, hot-swappable PEMS or up to four 1600W smart IPMI power supplies for N+1 or N+N redundancy; and 450W/blade power distribution.

The cooling scheme uses eight powerful fans that give an unsurpassed 65 CFM per slot, designed for the power-hungry next generation of CPU and switch blade servers. The chassis can be fitted with up to two shelf managers based on Pigeon Point Systems’ IPM Sentry ShMM-500R or with the latest ShMM-700 for cost-effective solutions.

“ZNYX focuses on continual innovation to ensure our customers have access to the best technologies available. Collaborating with ASIS accelerated our ability to deliver this new front-to-back cooling option to our customers,” said Connie Austin, president and CEO, ZNYX Networks. “By providing multiple chassis cooling flow options, our customers can utilize the high-density ZNYX mid-size platforms in most datacenter environments.”
