Small, rugged rack server combines Xeon and GPGPU AI

The General Micro Systems (GMS) “Goliath” 1U and 2U short rack servers are compact and rugged, only 16-inches deep, designed for shipboard and sub-surface high-performance applications that are space-constrained.

Using the latest Intel Scalable Xeon server and Nvidia GPGPU AI co-processors, “Goliath” packs over 4U worth of server and AI functions in only 1U or 2U. This saves size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) for NAS, recorder, data mining and sensor fusion applications, or naval afloat system upgrades. Despite their small size, the dual-socket, twin Scalable Xeon servers use Intel’s latest server processors: Gold/Platinum up to 24 cores (embedded SKUs) or 28 cores (server SKUs) with each CPU addressing up to 1 TB of ECC DDR4 memory. They also accommodate one or two Nvidia V100 200+ TFLOPS GPGPU AI co-processors.

Unique to Goliath servers are the five (in 2U) secure, removable storage cartridges designed for sensor data recording or network-attached storage (NAS) applications. Each cartridge holds four SAS/SATA/NVMe Gen 3 SSDs, for a total of 20 drives plus two internal M.2 fixed SSDs. A 2U Goliath has 22 SSDs and 168 TB of storage using 8 TB media (denser SSDs will dramatically increase Goliath’s total storage). Hardware and software RAID plus dual gigabit Ethernet or optional 10/40 GbE networks stream data to/from the array at full sensor speeds—making Goliath a decisive real-time sensor data processor and recorder. The servers can operate over a wider -20 °C to +55 °C temperature range while offering the security and long-life expected for DoD applications.
