Hardware appliance overview

The ThoughtSpot appliance hardware installs in a rack in your data center. This section describes the typical physical configuration.

ThoughtSpot has stopped selling and renewing hardware appliance contracts. See CentOS end-of-life announcement for more information, and alternative deployment options.

Hardware provided by ThoughtSpot

When your ThoughtSpot appliance arrives, it includes the following items:

Round Hole to Sq Hole Adapter Kit (For Slide Rail Management)

Quantity: 1

Power Cord, C13 to C14, 6 feet

Quantity: 2

Power Cord, C13 to NEMA 5-15, 6 feet

Quantity: 2

This power cord is not included with the Haswell platform.

The supply voltage, 120 VAC, available when using a NEMA-15 power cord is an insufficient input to achieve the full power output required by the Haswell power supply. Only the C13 to C14 power cord should be used with the Haswell platform.
