GMS Announces Revolutionary Concept in Rugged Server Design: “Total Rack” in Only 2U

Radically better design of S2U “King Cobra” 2U short rack server, with 12 patents awarded and pending, replaces up to 15U of equivalent rackmount components

SAN DIEGO, CA AFCEA West 2017 – February 21, 2017 – General Micro Systems, Inc. (GMS) today announced that the S2U “King Cobra” 2U short rack server can replace up to 15U of equivalent server rack functions. This ‘total rack’ server system is made possible by King Cobra’s revolutionary modular and scalable architecture that is a breakthrough in electro-mechanical design. Everything about King Cobra represents a different way of thinking about rackmount server design: each sub-system is optimized for maximum performance, lowest power, highest efficiency thermal profile and modular replacement in the field. Additionally, each subsystem is scalable and upgradable to lower TCO over the installation life.

U.S. Navy Selects GMS SD19 for Modernization

General Micro Systems Receives Multi-Year, Multi-Million Dollar Award for Smart, Rugged All-in-One Displays for Navy’s Modernization

Rugged SD19 smart displays with 19-inch LCD and embedded Intel-based PC selected for multiple Navy upgrades, replacing legacy systems while adding capabilities.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA: February 16, 2017 – General Micro Systems, Inc. (GMS) today announced that its SD19 rugged smart display is being deployed for use in modernizing select U.S. Navy ships. This smart, all-in-one display will be distributed throughout the Navy’s fleet to replace an existing “dumb” display that had been facing end-of-life challenges. The award comes from a customer that turned to General Micro Systems (GMS) to combine two functions into one: a rugged, 19-inch LCD with special electrical, mechanical and environmental characteristics; and a rugged Intel®-based single-board computer running Microsoft® Windows. GMS met the specification requirements in all cases and units passed rigorous qualification testing.

VICTORY Might Not Be a Win for Everybody

Open standards are easy to love. With a common, defined computing system, anybody can port their applications to them and the software syncs beautifully, simplifying upgrades and providing flexibility in customers’ choice of supplier. One U.S. Army crack at open standards provides a good example of the expectation, which was to correct the problems created by the bolted-on approach of field equipment on vehicles. Unfortunately, like far too many of such standards, the Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability, or VICTORY, falls flat on implementation.

Retrofit or Start From Scratch? It's Not a Simple Choice

The U.S. Army is upgrading, recapitalizing and redeploying materiel, with electronics a key part of the process.

It seems like a simple choice. You need to upgrade a platform’s computing capabilities—whether on a ground vehicle, a fast-delivery ship, a signal’s intelligence airplane or in a server room—but some of the existing hardware still is salvageable. Rather than do a complete upgrade from scratch, it is possible to leverage much of the existing technology and retain existing racks, power supplies and mass storage in the retrofit.
