  • System Overview

    The S422-LC/SW/RT/AI is fan-less fully rugged, low cost Intel® Xeon® E5 server family available in four variants. It is designed to provide the highest level of server-class performance possible in a fully ruggedized, conduction-cooled system, operating up to -40 °C to +85 °C. “Thunder” simplifies local data processing tasks that require an ultra-fast, Xeon®-class server with vast amounts of high-speed, ECC-protected RAM and storage in one ultra-rugged chassis.

     

    Thunder is ideal for the application that requires the horsepower of a high-performance server, enterprise-class multi-port LAN or a NAS subsystem appliance, while deployed into a rugged platform with no fans required. When equipped with the router or intelligent Layer 2/3/4 Ethernet switch, Thunder becomes a rugged compact server, with a dedicated switch or router capabilities to offer maximum network flexibility.

     

    Networking capability starts with three 1 GbE and two 40 GbE fiber ports on the Low Cost (LC) variant and expands to an additional 40 GbE port and twenty 10 GbE ports (in variants SW, RT and AI). The 10 GbE ports can be configured with a Broadcom® Layer 2/3/4 enterprise class switch (SW) or as segregated and secure port connections each with their own subnet mask to avoid data crossover (RT). In the RT every Ethernet port is directly coupled to the CPU(s), an architecture that is ideal for secure communications or dedicated hypervisor/virtual environments.

     

    Network routing technology includes software-defined networking (SDN) on various operating systems and virtual machine (VM) hypervisor environments. Each of the 10 GbE ports support power-over-Ethernet (POE+) to directly power remote nodes while simplifying wiring requirements, up to 100 W maximum total power sourced.

     

    Integrated support is available for a lower power commercial General-Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU), full size and height, for applications where large data processing tasks are required. The integrated GPGPU can “link” with other external GPGPUs, such as the GMS’s companion X422 Co-Processor, via the PCIe 3.0 FlexIO™ bus expansion feature. This bus expansion provides flexibility to upscale computing resources to match application computing requirements.

  • Applications

    “Thunder” is an Intel® Xeon® E5 server, up to 22 cores per CPU, intended for military/defense/aerospace with the greatest SWaP-Efficiency (SWaP-E) on the market due to its compact size and robust computing and I/O performance.

     

    Thunder is an ideal forwardly-deployed vehicle-mounted battlefield/airborne/shipboard server/ switch/router/NAS/artificial intelligence computer that offers the greatest reliability in the smallest packaging. Thunder can also be used in industrial and commercial platforms since it has server-class performance, significant networking options when used with the router or switch, powerful computing capabilities, exceptional I/O and removable storage.

     

    Thunder is fully compliant to MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD-461F and has ingress protection up to IP67. This system may also be ordered from the factory with pre-installed operating systems such as Windows® or Linux®.
