ESCONDIDO, Calif. — One Stop Systems (OSS) is introducing a server for vehicle, maritime, and aerospace applications in the edge computing market.
OSS released its flagship artificial intelligence (AI) transportable compute server, the Rigel Edge Supercomputer, according to the company this month.
With a dense form factor, the Rigel is designed for deployments in “tight spaces” at the edge, such as an equipment bay of autonomous vehicles, within mobile command centers, under seats of helicopters, or in an aircraft equipment bay.
The compact, air-cooled compute server is 25.6 inches deep and fits in one half of 4U rack space, roughly half the size of most air-cooled quad-GPU solutions.
In place of traditional PCI Express GPUs, the server uses the high-performance NVIDIA HGX A100 4-GPU platform and latest NVIDIA NVLink GPU interconnect.
The Rigel Edge Supercomputer contains several other features: 800 Gbps networking by using up to four NVIDIA ConnectX-6 200 Gb/s InfiniBand adapters; 64 TB of NVMe flash storage; 24 core AMD EPYC 7002 processors; and an advanced OSS PCIe Gen 4 switched direct interconnection between critical components.
Users can manage the server with an interface, supporting Redfish industry-standard specifications, for system resources and externally attached OSS expansion options, such as additional GPUs, networking, I/O, and NVMe storage.
The edge server supports a flexible power subsystem, including single and three phase AC and DC inputs, which enable a range of ground station and vehicle-supplied power.
“Virtually all AI edge compute platforms on the market today do not integrate and optimize data center-class computing with compact, rugged form factors,” said David Raun, president and CEO, OSS.
