GMS Introduces Rugged, Multi-Domain Xeon D Server with Removable Drives
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA, September 20, 2016 – General Micro Systems, Inc. (GMS) today announced the availability of the “Golden-Eyes II” SB2002-MD multi-domain server, the latest in the “Golden-Eyes” family of ultra-rugged, small, and extremely lightweight computer systems.
The Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD features two fully isolated and separate Red (non-secure) and Black (classified) network and server domains, and separate power supplies. The unit is ideal for isolated processing, virtual machines, MILS-targeted red/black separated networks, redundant host processors, or any system requiring separated or dual-class CPU configurations.
The Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD fully supports multi-domain, NSA-secure architecture, and features two completely independent Intel® Xeon® D-based servers each with up to 16 cores, and up to 64GB of DDR4 memory with Error Correcting Code (ECC). Designed to withstand harsh outdoor environments where it may be fully exposed to rain, sun, dirt, and in the case of military applications battlefield shock and vibration, the Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD is the next generation of the Golden-Eyes SB1002-MD, currently widely deployed in Army MUM-T2 vehicles, robots, and UAVs.
Independent Power Supplies, High Speed I/O & SSD Enhancements
The Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD offers truly independent, electrically isolated power supplies as each domain is equipped with its own MIL-STD-1275 power conditioning module (PCM). The high speed connector allows for reliable high-speed I/O access and supports two channels of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0, enabling product modification for future high-speed technology requirements. Each domain’s removable 2.5” SATA or NVMe SSD features an enhanced door design and sealed drive bay, offering users the ability to easily access, open and pull the drive in seconds, while system internals remain protected. An optional fixed M.2 SSD for the operating system is also available.
“Building on our unprecedented modular approach with our computing engines, Golden-Eyes II packs an incredible amount of processing, networking, storage, and more in an incredibly small package,” said GMS CEO Benjamin Sharfi. “In my 35 years in the defense electronics industry, I have never been more proud of a product than this one, as we were able to move from concept to deployable project within one year.”
Smallest Footprint, RuggedCoolSM Technology
At 133 cubic inches, and only 10 pounds, the Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD offers the industry’s greatest computing density in one footprint with multiple independent computers, multiple cores, and dual RAM banks. Equipped with the industry’s most unique conduction-cooling technique, GMS’s patent-pending RuggedCoolSM technology, the SB2002-MD is the only system that operates from -40°C to +75°C, or +85°C with the use of a thermal accessory. By providing the lowest thermal resistance to the case, RuggedCoolSM keeps the CPU within temperature limits at full load, while still providing the highest shock specifications known in the industry. The Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD is a stand-alone, fan-less system and is mounted directly to a metal cold plate surface, providing a reliable conductive thermal path.
Pricing & Availability
Designed for military, defense and aerospace, industrial, and medical applications, the Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD is available in quantity starting at $27,000.
GMS will be demonstrating the SB2002-MD, along with its additional computing systems, smart panel PCs and displays, servers, and network/routing/switch equipment at booth #7549 at the upcoming Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Conference October 3-5, 2016 in Washington, D.C.
