About Our Product
AIC delivers high performance, high availability storage solution and robust management tools required for today’s data-intensive applications. AIC’s powerful, reliable and cost-effective storage solutions encompass direct-attached storage (DAS), network-attached storage (NAS), IP-SAN storage solutions that support Fiber Channel (FC), Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA) storage interfaces.
AIC's offers heavy-duty EMI-RFI-resistant industrial computer enclosures. Our scalable and cost-effective enclosure solutions encompass server and storage enclosures in a variety of form factors and specifications. AIC enclosures are designed to support the latest technology platforms in the market today, ensuring maximum compatibility with products from other component vendors.
AIC offers a wide variety of products designed around a modular building block platform, allowing for highly customizable solutions to be created in the shortest possible design period. Our unique approach and revolutionary technology breakthroughs, such as our innovative MAX I/O™ technology, are what sets us apart, providing customers with market-ready appliances and solutions, in the fastest time to market possible.
AIC Network Platform Solutions are NEBS and/or FIPS ready. They come in 1RU and 2RU form factors, support single or dual Intel processors, and offer maximum PCI Express expandability. Network security appliance manufacturers looking for robust solutions with extended product availability can utilize these AIC solutions as building blocks.
High Availability Solutions
An AIC high-availability (HA) storage server is a continuously operational system that has dual controllers (or nodes) with each controller supporting its own motherboard, CPU, memory and add-in cards. AIC's HA servers operate in an active/active configuration where instances and requests are managed concurrently by both nodes, and in case of a failure with one of the nodes, the backup node takes over the increased load immediately and the failure is unlikely to be noticed by the user. Most of the components on AIC HA servers are redundant and hot-swappable, which decreases or nearly eliminates down time if a node needs to be serviced because of a failure or a scheduled maintenance time.
Infrastructure Appliance Solutions
AIC Smart Rack solutions are designed to accelerate service deployment, operational efficiency and friendly management. AIC Smart Rack architecture is composed of a rack with centralized power, rear cooling fan wall and rack level remote management controllers to ensure lower TCO, higher efficiency and easier management.
There are three building blocks for AIC Smart Rack – compute nodes, storage server nodes and JBOD nodes. They can be mixed and matched in the rack to run different applications. Different combinations are used to handle various computing and/or storage demands.
All sensors, FRUs and thermal conditions can be managed through remote management controllers to make sure of rack-level reliability.
