The Bow™ Pod systems are designed to be easily expanded to include more IPUs. This guide describes how to expand your existing Bow Pod system.
With the information in this guide, you will be able to expand:
a single Bow-2000 system to a Bow Pod16 direct attach (DA) system (Section 2, Expand a single Bow-2000 system to a Bow Pod16 DA).
a Bow Pod16 direct attach (DA) system to a Bow Pod64 system (Section 3, Expand a Bow Pod16 direct attach to a Bow Pod64).
a Bow Pod64 to a larger system, e.g. a Bow Pod256 system or a Bow Pod512 system (Section 4, Expand a Bow Pod64 to a larger Bow Pod system).
This guide is for properly trained service personnel and technicians who are required to expand Bow Pod systems.
In this guide, the term IPU-Machine refers to the blades installed in your Pod, so a Bow-2000 in Bow Pod systems.
