In this video, Jim Ison will do a quick walkthrough of the OSS 4U Pro Gen4 PCIe Expansion System. The 4U Pro is a rugged AI Transportable system that provides optimized, configurable PCIe Gen4 expansion for edge AI applications with up to 256 Gigabytes per second (GB/s) bi-directional host to expansion bandwidth and 768 GB/s aggregate system bandwidth.
This video will highlight some of the most important features of the 4U Pro Gen4 PCIe Expansion System and help you determine if this system is the right fit for your AI edge application.
As mentioned in the video, the 4U Pro supports up to 8 Gen4 double-wide GPUs, with four PCIe Gen4 x16 HBA/NIC slots for up to 256GB/s of sustained host to expansion data throughput. Alternatively, the 4U Pro can be configured to provide 16 single-width PCIe Gen4 x8 slots for scale out IO applications such FPGA data ingest or the latest NVMe storage add-in cards.
Additional features of the 4U Pro Gen4 PCIe Expansion System including dynamic fan speed control, IPMI based system monitoring and control, replaceable fan filters, and optional SmartNIC host configuration elevate the 4UP to the ideal expansion platform for the entire AI workflow. The 4U Pro combines the power of the latest PCIe Gen4 add-in cards with an optimized, feature-rich, and rugged design for the most demanding AI edge applications.
OSS has been a leading provider of PCIe technologies for many years – always one of the first to market with host interface boards and expansion backplanes for the latest PCIe generation. As Jim mentioned in the video, the 4U Pro is a Gen4 PCIe Expansion System, but will soon be available in PCIe Gen 5. The 4U Pro can help you bring the power of the datacenter to the rugged edge.

As the forefront of the development of artificial intelligence and a key application within One Stop Systems’ “AI Transportable” industry, autonomous vehicles present an opportunity for innovation in designing ruggedized servers and high-capacity storage products. While none of the vehicles on the road today are truly self-driving, progress is being steadily made towards systems that can successfully predict and navigate everyday traffic. Autonomous cars and trucks being currently deployed are capable of driving with limited operator input, it is predicted that fully autonomous vehicles will be widely available by the end of the decade. One Stop Systems has had the unique opportunity to support this progression by developing products catered to the extensive storage needs of the autonomous vehicles industry.
Out-of-Band (OOB) system management is a staple of the modern datacenter. The tools used by administrators have matured over the last 20 years to provide a variety of mission critical features for managing, monitoring, configuring, and updating computer systems independent of the host system’s resources. Intel led the way in the early days by defining a set of interface specifications for basic system management in 1998 called the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). Over the next 20 years, 200+ computer vendors joined support for the IPMI specifications. While IPMI has served us well over the years, it is showing its age with a myriad of security concerns and use of legacy standards that make managing modern hybrid infrastructures difficult and complicated.
The idea and dream of a fully autonomous car is almost 100 years old. It was first formulated in the US magazine Scientific American. The reason for this was presumably the "American Wonder", a remote-controlled car that drove through Manhattan in 1925. After almost a century, it seems that the automotive industry is on the verge of reaching its goal of having driverless and fully autonomous vehicles participate in everyday traffic. But when will it finally come? To answer this question, we need to examine the reasons why vehicles are not yet fully autonomous.
