One Stop Systems, a provider of specialized computing solutions for mission critical edge applications, announced the release of SCA8000 compute acceleration expansion platform for use with Marvell ThunderX2 Arm based servers, in a press release.
The SCA8000 includes eight NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core GPUs interconnected with NVIDIA NVLink providing 300GB/s of peer-to-peer GPU bandwidth. The platform allows up to 64GB/s of uplink bandwidth between the GPUs and Arm based servers using up to four payment card industry (PCI) Express Gen3x16 host interconnects.
You can view a demonstration of SCA8000 at SuperComputing 2019 in Denver.

A long-haul truck cruises by you on Interstate 10 in west Texas. You get a brief wave from the driver who seems unfocused on the road ahead. It’s hot and the road is bumpy. You didn’t realize it but you just encountered an autonomous driving truck in development, testing out the latest version of its Artificial Intelligence algorithms. The truck is loaded with unseen video cameras, lidar, radar and infer-red sensors. As it travels along it is seeing its environment and its on-board computers are making the thousands of little decisions that keep it moving safely to its prescribed destination. The driver is a safety layer that will be removed in future iterations of the design.
Adoption of the latest HPC and AI technologies in autonomous vehicles is creating a surge in vehicle real-time data processing capabilities. The growth in number, speed and resolution of vehicle sensors and related compute performance in autonomous vehicles has in turn led to increased demand for high-capacity, high-throughput storage. Effective storage within autonomous vehicles must meet three primary criteria: throughput to match the capture and processing rates, a rapid data transfer workflow for offloading the captured data, and a rugged environmental design to operate in any autonomous vehicle conditions.
