THE HIVE MODULES

THE HIVE MODULES

A HIVE is a modular system based on three building blocks. Each one is an optimized unit for one of the three key data handling tasks in imaging & microscopy applications: Computation – Networking – Storage.

HIVE CORE FOR DATA PROCESSING

  • High-Performance CPU & GPU for best image processing & analysis
  • VPN based remote desktop access
  • 2×10 Gbit/s copper or 2×10 Gbit/s optical fibre (optional)
  • Up to 1 TB DDR4 RAM
  • 10TB Data safe storage with RAID5

Starting from:

  • 2,2GHz 10-core CPU
  • 128 GB DDR4 RAM
  • Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000
  • Windows Server 2019
  • 10 TB SSD RAID5
  • 500 GB NVMe SSD for page file
  • 2×10 Gb Network

HIVE NET FOR NETWORKING AND SECURITY

  • Integrated router and firewall to create a secure HIVE network for hosting the connected devices
  • 10Gbit/s 16-Port Network Switch with a 320GB/s backbone to ensure a reliable exchange of large data sets
  • UPS battery buffered power stability system to stabilize the power supply and to ensure a safe shutdown in case of power outage to prevent loss of data
  • Security and firewall provided by router
  • 320 Gb/s backbone
  • Gb router
  • Battery Backup for data safety
  • VPN Access

HIVE DATA DATA REPOSITORY

  • RAID6 secure data storage with fast access to large data
  • File system optimized for large data storage, reliable access to your data and maximum system stability
  • User friendly operation through standard Windows functionality with no need for specialized IT knowledge
  • Open Design allows for easy up-scaling of storage volume
  • RAID6 array in 52, 78, 104 or 130 TB
  • Connectivity via Host Bus Adapter @ 4x 12Gbit/sec
  • Plug-and-play expansion of storage
  • Data collection rates starting from 800 MB/s
  • Hotswap Disk Replacement

HIVE GPU RENDERING / AI UNIT

  • GPU extender box
  • no special driver needed
  • up to 3 HIVE GPU for a single HIVE CORE
  • HIVE Core synchronised power on / off
  • 1000 W power supply
  • PCIe x16 exteneder
  • Up to 8 single or 4 double sized GPUs
  • Up to 504 TFLOPS

HIVE CONNECTIVITY

  • A HIVE creates a firewall protected DHCP network for the connected microscopes and other data sources.
  • In a standard configuration, the HIVE provides 13 local 10GBit/s connections and can be connected to the local IT environment.
  • An optional 2 x 10 Gbit uplink connection can be installed for high speed data traffic. This may be required to connect to local backup or permanent storage servers
