Flash Arrays & GPU Compute Accelerators: Direct Attached vs. All-in-One
PCIe expansion technology is used to create high-end compute accelerators and flash storage arrays. We will highlight the major differences between direct attached and all-in-one flash arrays; and NVIDIA GPU accelerators and discuss the benefits and uses of each type – specifically for rugged and military applications.

All-flash Arrays for the Warfighter
How do you optimize the highest density and highest performance flash arrays for the warfighter? There is a wide range of all-flash storage arrays addressing the needs of the datacenter, ground station and military vehicle. These leading-edge COTS products are packaged in MIL-STD SWaP-optimized form factors. One Stop Systems provides such a solution with 50TB in a 6lb magazine.
These form factors operate as bulk storage, network storage and ultra-high-speed data recorders with all the features required for demanding applications such as advanced data integrity, bulk hot swap of multiple SSDs with one latch, Follow-Me™ flash portability between physical systems and read-only operating systems. We will walk you through the SB, FSAe and FSAn innovations in hardware and software that allow them to scale from 3TB to 1PB.

GPU Accelerators Accelerate the Battlespace
Many defense and security applications like geospatial imaging, video analytics, mission simulation / training, deep-learning, cyber-threat detection and data analytics, run most effectively on multi-GPU compute accelerator systems.
Multi-GPU platforms dramatically enhance response time and aggregate throughput, solving problems faster, more accurately and more cost effectively. We will highlight a cross-section of compute accelerator technology, specifically presenting the industry’s highest performance, most scalable and most dense solutions.
