The IPU-POD systems are designed to be easily expanded to include more IPUs. This guide describes how to expand your existing IPU-POD system.
With the information in this guide, you will be able to expand:
an IPU‑POD4 direct attach (DA) system to an IPU‑POD16 DA system (Section 2, Expand an IPU‑POD4 DA to an IPU‑POD16 DA)
an IPU‑POD16 DA system to an IPU‑POD64 system (Section 3, Expand an IPU‑POD16 DA to an IPU‑POD64)
an IPU‑POD64 to a larger system, for example, a IPU‑POD128 system (Section 4, Expand an IPU‑POD64 to a larger IPU-POD system).
This guide is for properly trained service personnel and technicians who are required to expand IPU-POD systems.
In this guide, the term IPU-Machine refers to the blades installed in your Pod, so an IPU-M2000 in IPU-POD systems.
