The nodes on the back of both appliances are in a reverse N shape, with Node A at the bottom right and Node D at the top left. The back of the Haswell appliance

The Haswell appliance shown here is not fully populated, as it only has three nodes. Your appliance may be populated with 1-4 nodes, depending on the ordered configuration. If you order less than four nodes, ThoughtSpot fills the empty slot with a filler panel.
