Facilities Infrastructure has become a key issue
for broadcasters and the vendors that serve them in recent years. The
huge growth in the number of systems being installed has placed more
importance on the ability of the power and network back up systems
running in those buildings than ever before.
As many new systems are 'mission
critical' to the broadcaster, loss of power or failure due to power
outages or power "events" can mean a major loss of revenue.
Additionally, workgroup servers in the
back office are becoming more critical to the performance and
availability of larger networked systems throughout facilities. A
failure of a critical server can bring down a larger networked system,
this can mean a major loss of revenue or even going off-air in some
I-Bus 19" rack
mount computer servers, offer features like hot-swap PSU, hot-swap SCSI
storage, RAID and SNMP System Monitoring that can help customers manage
their servers. Additionally, the exceptional internal cooling prolongs
component life (MTBF) and easy-to-maintain design means lower mean
times to repair (MTTR).
I-Bus systems feature up to 99.999%
availability based on the PICMG Compact PCI standard. With features
like hot-swap CPU and expansion cards - systems can remain 'up' even
after critical component faults or when being maintained or upgraded.
Server platforms can be made available
as part of a clustering solution providing automatic CPU to CPU fail
over in the event of a problem or planned maintenance event for almost
continuous system availability - vital in key revenue generating
