Cryptocurreny miner Bitmain has announced a new rack-style mining equipment to supports a wide range of blockchain platforms and startups.
The AntRack features a hot-swappable modularized configuration, is easy to deploy and upgrade with no need to turn off, and the rack-style design is an excellent option for customers of large-scale operations.
AntRack adopts a module design including five key modules: 1 Rack, 1 Switch Board, 4 Servers, 1 Main Control Panel, and 1 Water Cooling System. The crucial parts – a hash board, control panel, power supply unit (PSU), and fans – are all hot-swappable for optimised operations, significantly reducing the risk of machine depreciation while maximising the effective mining time.
This makes it a perfect option for customers looking to manage expansion cost and raise rate of return. As long as the location allows, customers can set up as many AntRacks as needed, easy to expand anytime.
“The cost of equipment upgrade - not only the investment in new machines, also the time consumption when turning down the old machines to switch with new ones. AntRack is our solution to that problem,” says AntRack Project R&D Director, Sun MingHui.
“Our design is driven by a problem-solving mindset. It has come to our attention that many of our customers are challenged when trying to expand their operations.”
Founded in 2013, Bitmain transforms computing by building industry-defining technology in cryptocurrency, blockchain and artificial intelligence. Bitmain leads the industry in the production of integrated circuits for cryptocurrency mining, as well as mining hardware under the Antminer brand.
The Rack-Style Miner is a perfect fit for large-scale deployment of mining farms and Internet data centers (IDC). AntRack can easily be deployed and get to work once its 3-phase AC power cable and network cable are plugged in, and the inlet & outlet for the water-cooling system is set.
Bitmain provides an all-in-one data centre solution called ANTBOX, which contains 10 AntRack miners. By configuring the 3-phase AC power supply, network port and water-cooling system, mining is possible in almost every location.
