Jul 03, 2013

The Citrix CloudBridge 3000 platform has 3 models: CloudBridge 3000-050, CloudBridge 3000-100, and CloudBridge 3000-155, with bandwidths of 50M bps, 100 Mbps, and 155 Mbps, respectively. Each model is a 1U appliance with one quad-core processor and 32 gigabytes (GB) of memory.

The Citrix CloudBridge 3000 appliance is available in two port configurations:
  • Six 10/100/1000 Base-T copper Ethernet ports
  • Four 1G SX Fiber ports

The following figure shows the front panel of a CloudBridge 3000 with six 10/100/1000 Base-T copper Ethernet ports.

The appliance has the following ports:

  • An RS232 serial console port.
  • A copper Ethernet (RJ45) Port called the Lights out Management (LOM) port. You can use this port to remotely monitor and manage the appliance independently of the appliance's software.
  • A copper Ethernet (RJ45) management port, numbered 0/1. The management port is used to connect directly to the appliance for system administration functions.
    Note: The LOM port also operates as a management port.
  • Network Ports, in one of the following configurations:
    • CloudBridge 3000 (6x10/100/1000 Base-T copper Ethernet ports). Six 10/100/1000 Base-T copper Ethernet ports numbered 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, and 1/6 from left to right. The six ports form three accelerated pairs, which function as accelerated bridges. Ports 1/1 and 1/2 are accelerated pair A (apA), 1/3 and 1/4 are accelerated pair B (apB), and 1/5 and 1/6 are accelerated pair C (apC).
    • CloudBridge 3000 (4x 1G SX Fiber ports). Four 1G SX fiber ports numbered 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 from left to right. The four ports form two accelerated pairs, which function as accelerated bridges. Ports 1/1 and 1/2 are accelerated pair A (apA) and 1/3 and 1/4 are accelerated pair B (apB).

The following figure shows the back panel of the CloudBridge 3000 appliance.

The following components are visible on the back panel of the CloudBridge 3000 appliance:

  • Four 600 GB removable solid-state drives. The top left solid-state drive stores both the appliance's software and the user data. The other three store only user data.
  • Power switch, which turns power to the appliance on or off. To turn off the power, press the switch for five seconds.
  • USB port (reserved for a future release).
  • Non-maskable interrupt (NMI) button, for use at the request of Technical Support to produce a core dump. You must use a pen, pencil, or other pointed object to press this red button, which is recessed to prevent unintentional activation.
  • Disable alarm button, which is nonfunctional unless you install a second power supply. In that case, it disables the alarm that sounds if the appliance is plugged into only one power outlet or one of the power supplies fails.
  • Single power supply, rated at 450 watts, 100-240 volts.
