Compute block

The ThinkAgile CP compute block delivers the processing (CPU and memory) resources for the ThinkAgile CP platform. The compute block consists of server nodes inside of a hardware enclosure, and this block is expandable by adding CPU or memory. The architecture enables compute workloads to scale quickly, simply and as needed without the expense and inefficiency of over-provisioning. There is no upper limit to the maximum number of compute blocks. You can start with one node and scale to thousands of nodes.

The compute nodes are driven by our open KVM-based compute virtualization software and other software that supports network virtualization. It supports full- and para-virtualization; live migration; and CPU/memory/storage oversubscription.

The ThinkAgile CP compute block provides the following benefits:
