[VIDEO] Features and Benefits of the Short Depth Server (SDS)

Features and Benefits of the Short Depth Server (SDS)

In this video, Braden Cooper, Product Marketing Manager at OSS, does a quick walkthrough of the OSS PCIe Gen 4 3U Short Depth Server (both AMD and Intel versions). The SDS has configurable motherboard options in a feature packed rugged server platform for GPU or FPGA accelerated computing, U.2/U.3 NVMe storage, and PCIe Gen 4 expansion. This functionality is delivered in a size efficient, edge-ready rugged chassis with 3U height and 20” depth. This edge optimized server can operate stand-alone as a hyperconverged PCIe Gen 4 rugged server or form the core CPU and memory resources for a scale-out, rack level, expandable and composable solution in the shallowest available racks. 

This video will highlight some of the most important features of the SDS and help you determine if this system is the right fit for your AI edge application.



As described in the video, the AMD version of the rugged server can accommodate a motherboard with Dual or Single-Socket AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series Processors. This configuration features up to 7 PCIe Gen 4 x16 slots, and 16 SATA/NVMe drives and supports up to 4TB of memory.

With the Intel version, the motherboard features two Intel Scalable Processors as well as six PCIe Gen 4 x16 full-height slots (four of which are double-width), one PCIe Gen 4 x8 full-height slot and options for 8 or 16 SATA/NVMe drives. This configuration supports up to 4TB of memory. Both versions of the rugged server have a resource expanded BIOS for scale-out device enumeration and large memory mapped I/O used for GPUs and accelerators. 

The two 8-drive canisters are part of what makes the SDS a unique rugged server platform for edge applications. As the video mentions, the SDS is currently being used in autonomous truck applications both in the truck and in the hub depot. The truck will pull into the depot and the canisters will be removed quickly and inserted into another SDS to quickly offload the data. New canisters can be put into the truck to get it back on the road quickly.

OSS also has customers on the military side using the SDS in mobile command shelters. The server is MIL-STD-810G tested and has many features to withstand the shock and vibration of rugged edge environments.

The Challenges of Designing with PCIe Gen 5 for AI Transportables
The Challenges of Designing with PCIe Gen 5 for AI Transportables

November 22, 2022

In the world of digital computing, the fundamental determinant of performance is the ability to distinguish between an electrical signal representing a 1 or a 0.  The speed at which these transitions can be recognized on a system’s internal PCI Express (PCIe) interconnect determines the bandwidth of data that can be transmitted and acted upon. With PCIe Gen5, transitions from 1’s to 0’s must be recognized 32 billion times per second.

[VIDEO] Features and Benefits of the Rigel Edge Supercomputer

November 08, 2022

In this video, Tom Fries, Government Sales Manager at OSS, does a quick walkthrough of the Rigel Edge Supercomputer. The Rigel Edge Supercomputer brings the power of NVIDIA® HGX™ A100 SXM GPUs to the rugged edge. The HGX A100 4-GPU backplane delivers 78 teraFLOPS of FP64 HPC performance using third generation NVIDIA NVLink™ technology. The GPUs are integrated with OSS PCIe Gen 4.0 expansion technology to take advantage of the latest AMD 3rd Gen EPYC processors while offering four PCIe Gen 4.0 x16 expansion slots for high-speed network interconnect, NVMe storage, or FPGA sensor capture.
