  • Application

    The SO302-SVM is designed to replace up to six different rugged workstations into a much smaller, lighter package using far less power. The Spider is the next generation of the SZC91x "Zeus" which is widely deployed in Army WIN-T vehicles, unmanned vehicles, and hazardous applications where the computer is exposed to the harshest possible environments and also where size, weight, and power are the main considerations. It is ideal for combat and surveillance vehicles where several computers are used for data collection, targeting/mapping, and data acquisition. The SO302-SVM supports the most popular Hypervisors offered by VMware®, WindRiver® and Microsoft® and may be shipped from the factory with operating systems such as Windows®, Linux® and/or VMware® pre-installed. The Spider is fully compliant to MIL-STD 810G, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD-461E and IP66.
  • General Description

    The SO302-SVM "Spider" is a second-generation, fully rugged server. 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 (-20°C to +75°C Standard).  The Spider is targeted for applications where an ultra-fast, multi-core CPU is needed with vast amounts of high-speed, ECC-protected RAM with six independent I/O modules to replace multiple workstations utilizing virtual machine technology. The SO302-SVM supports 10 physical CPU cores with Hyper-Threading for a total of 20 logical cores, each operating at up to 2.4GHz with ability to TurboBoost up to 3.0 GHz. To harvest this incredible CPU performance, the CPU is coupled with up to 128GB of DDR3 RAM organized in four banks. Each RAM bank consists of two DDR3 DIMM arrays with Error Correcting Code (ECC). The ECC RAM provides 2-bit error detection with 1-bit of correction and supports up to 1600 Mega Transfers per Second (MTS) between CPU and memory. 
    The I/O subsystem for the Spider is designed to support the widest array of high-speed I/O devices with modularity and security. The I/O consists of a host CPU I/O and six Virtual Machine I/Os (VMIO). The host CPU also supports one 4-lane XMC site (lose six SAM™ I/O sites on VMIO), dual 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 3.0 and two USB2.0 ports with power, two Serial ports with RS-232/422/485 buffers, full HD-Audio, and eight General Purpose I/O lines.  The SO302-SVM also provides a very flexible set of storage devices with highly secure options. The Spider supports up to four removable 2.5” SATA SSD drives up to 2TB each, with optional AES-256, and secure erase functions with tamper proof.  Additionally, the host supports one mSATA drive with write-protect for use as a local boot device up to 1TB. Other optional I/O devices included for the host CPU are two SAM™ Sites, which can be used to add I/O such as GPS for accurate positioning and time stamping of data packets, Wi-Fi/ Bluetooth and many other user I/O options. The Spider also supports an optional Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) for detailed system health monitoring and reporting using industry-standard IPMI 2.0 via a dedicated Ethernet port or Serial port. For applications requiring high-performance video output, the SO302-SVM provides an optional SAM™ Video module, utilizing the most powerful AMD GPU (768 GFLOPS; 10 compute units) with dual Display Port or HD Video ports and one VGA port.
    The Spider secure virtual machine architecture allows up to six VM I/O sites. Each VM I/O site is fully independent and is configured as a "Share Nothing Architecture”. In addition, each VM I/O site is connected to the host CPU via PCI-Express lanes only; thus all I/O transactions are fully monitored and supervised with the TPM/TXT/VT-x security engines to assure the host CPU authorizes all accesses.  Each VMIO site provides dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports (USB 3.0 Optional) with power, two Serial ports with RS-232/422/485 buffers, and two SAM™ I/O sites. Each SAM™ I/O supports a variety of different I/O modules, such as mSATA for a dedicated boot device for the VM sites, a separate Video output or capture, CANbus, MIL-STD 1553, or custom user I/O.
  • Technology Used

    The Spider utilizes the most powerful Xeon® processor from Intel®. The Ivy Bridge-EP CPU is a second-generation, 10-core Sandy Bridge microarchitecture processor with a fully integrated memory controller for the best possible memory performance. This CPU is the highest performance server-class CPU from Intel® with many added security functions, such as Intel’s second-generation Virtualization Technology VT-x, Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), and Converged Platform Power Management (CPPM) for thermal management and power saving. The graphics engine is based around the most powerful AMD full-size embedded MXM GPU module (768 GFLOPS; 10 compute units) for outstanding performance in 2D and 3D accelerations and can be fully virtualized. The I/O is provided via 40 lanes of PCIe 3.0 which are monitored via the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to assure full security and safe operation.
  • Cooling

    The Spider is equipped with GMS' patent pending RuggedCool™ technology, which is the most unique cooling system in the industry and is the only server that operates up to -40°C to +85°C at full load without throttling the CPU! This cooling approach provides the lowest thermal resistance to the case while providing the highest shock specifications known in the industry. The SO302-SVM is a stand-alone, fan-less system and should be mounted directly to a metal surface that provides a reliable conductive thermal path for dependable operation.
