"THUNDER" S422

Rugged, Fully Sealed, Intel® Xeon® E5 CPU Server with Removable Drive(s), 40/100 Gb Ethernet, 10 Gb Ethernet Switch, and Add-in I/O

The S422-LC/SW/RT/AI is a fan-less fully rugged, low cost Intel® Xeon® E5 server family available in four variants. It is designed to provide the highest level of server-class performance possible in a fully ruggedized, conduction-cooled system, operating up to -40 °C to +85 °C. “Thunder” simplifies local data processing tasks that require an ultra-fast, Xeon®-class server with vast amounts of high-speed, ECC-protected RAM and storage in one ultra-rugged chassis.

 

Thunder is ideal for the application that requires the horsepower of a high-performance server, enterprise-class multi-port LAN or a NAS subsystem appliance, while deployed into a rugged platform with no fans required. When equipped with the router or intelligent Layer 2/3/4 Ethernet switch, Thunder becomes a rugged compact server, with a dedicated switch or router capabilities to offer maximum network flexibility.

  • System Overview

    The S422-LC/SW/RT/AI is a fan-less fully rugged, low cost Intel® Xeon® E5 server family available in four variants.

When equipped with the router or intelligent Layer 2/3/4 Ethernet switch, Thunder becomes a rugged compact server, with a dedicated switch or router capabilities to offer maximum network flexibility.

  • Networking / GPGPU

    Networking capability starts with four 1 GbE and two 40 GbE fiber ports on the Low Cost (LC) variant and expands to an additional two 40 GbE ports and thirty 10 GbE ports (in variants SW, RT and AI). The 10 GbE ports can be configured with a Broadcom® Layer 2/3/4 enterprise class switch (SW) or as segregated and secure port connections each with their own subnet mask to avoid data crossover (RT). In the RT every Ethernet port is directly coupled to the CPU(s), an architecture that is ideal for secure communications or dedicated hypervisor/virtual environments. 

     

    Integrated support is available for a lower power commercial General-Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU), full size and height, for applications where large data processing tasks are required. The integrated GPGPU can “link” with other external GPGPUs, such as the GMS’s companion X422 Co-Processor, via the PCIe 3.0 FlexIO™ bus expansion feature. This bus expansion provides flexibility to upscale computing resources to match application computing requirements.

  • Applications

    “Thunder” is an Intel® Xeon® E5 server, up to 22 cores per CPU, intended for military/defense/aerospace with the greatest SWaP-Efficiency (SWaP-E) on the market due to its compact size and robust computing and I/O performance.

     

    Thunder is an ideal forwardly-deployed vehicle-mounted battlefield/airborne/shipboard server/ switch/router/NAS/artificial intelligence computer that offers the greatest reliability in the smallest packaging. Thunder can also be used in industrial and commercial platforms since it has server-class performance, significant networking options when used with the router or switch, powerful computing capabilities, exceptional I/O and removable storage.

     

    Thunder is fully compliant to MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD-461F and has ingress protection up to IP67. This system may also be ordered from the factory with pre-installed operating systems such as Windows® or Linux®.

  • Temperature:

  • Ruggedness:

    Available in ruggedization levels R1-R2


  • System Overview

    The X422 is a GPGPU Co-Processor System that supports GMS’ companion S422 SW Server. Up to two full size GPGPU cards can be installed, either as two independent processing units or they can be intelligently linked together to form one virtual processing unit. In addition to the GPGPU capabilities, “Lightning” offers bus expansion capabilities to virtually any full size, full height PCIe 3.0 card, but is optimized to harness multiple GPGPU systems. The X422 affords the use of commercially available, full size, GPGPU products in a completely sealed and protected, extended temperature fully ruggedized enclosure that utilizes GMS’ patented RuggedCool™ technology.

     

    Owing to the underlying GPGPU architecture with multiple cores and threads, the X422 can accelerate large data processing tasks such as image recognition, digital signal processing, data mining, block chain computation, artificial intelligence, machine vision, image processing, vector processing, and other compute-intensive tasks. PCIe 3.0 bus expansion allows upward-scaling by cascading (daisy chaining) additional GPGPUs as as necessary via additional X422 chassis.

  • FlexIO™ / PCIe Gen.3

    The X422 utilizes GMS’s FlexIO™ flow-through architecture which is based upon wide PCIe 3.0 lanes (x16) operating at 8 Gbps. When connected via x16 PCIe 3.0 to the companion S422 dual Xeon® conduction-cooled rugged server, the GPGPUs (or any PCIe cards) appear to be within the same “bus” of the main server. This closely-coupled architecture allows for rapid data passing, RDMA and “atomic” operations, or provides a fully autonomous GPGPU co-processor where only data is shared asymmetrically from the main CPUs.

     

    The onboard intelligent PCIe 3.0 switch provides packet processing and local “routing”, allowing the user to customize a homogeneous or heterogeneous architecture between the local GPGPU resources. For example, the X422 can be partitioned for GPGPU A to operate separately and independently from GPGPU B—or they can pass data between each other via the dual x16 PCIe 3.0 fabric. Separate, GPGPU-specific, and customizable I/O “pipes” are available to the front panel for each PCIe slot. This allows sensor-to-GPGPU processing, down- or upstream processing, or an additional data path that bypasses the companion S422 dual-Xeon® server.

  • Applications

    The X422 is a high performance GPGPU co-processor and bus expansion system designed for use with the S422 SW Server.

    The X422 is an ideal forwardly-deployed, vehicle-mounted, high performance GPGPU co-processing system. Applications include computing clusters and parallel computing, digital signal processing, digital image processing, video processing, neural networks, data mining, cryptography, and intrusion detection.

     

    The X422 system is fully compliant to MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD-461E and has ingress protection up to IP64.
