In addition to the original 6U CompactPCI (C660) version, Aitech now offers managed Gigabit Ethernet switches in 6U VPX (C670), 3U VPX (C680) and XMC (M620) formats.  The new rugged switches provide reliable operation in all harsh environments across several military, rugged and industrial applications.

Each managed switch product supports the same protocols and network services, in addition to a simplified HTML browser-based interface, enabling the user to easily manage the switch's comprehensive feature set for a better optimized network.  Using the Marvell Prestera 98DX4122 multi-layer switch packet controller, the switches perform Layer 2 and Layer 3 routing and switching.

The switches feature a host of board management devices such as power controller, elapsed time recorder and temperature sensors as well as several monitoring devices including CPU, port and TCAM utilization.

The Aitech GbE Switch Family consists of the following highly integrated products:

Designed for high performance in rugged environments, these switches incorporate an integrated low power ARM-compatible Sheeva CPU core.  Operating at 800 MHz, the CPU core functions as a service processor and interfaces to a high speed DDRII-320 MHz memory controller. 

Features of each port include auto-negotiation and auto MDI/MDIX support as well as head of line (HOL) blocking prevention.  VLAN and port mirroring are also included.

Each GbE switch is available in five 100% software compatible environmental build-grades:

  • Air-cooled commercial (0 degrees C to 50 degrees C),
  • Air-cooled rugged (-40 degrees C to +71 degrees C) 
  • Conduction-cooled rugged (-40 degrees C to +71 degrees C)
  • Full military air-cooled (-55 degrees C to +85 degrees C)
  • Full military conduction-cooled (-55 degrees C to +85 degrees C)

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
