General Micro Systems (GMS) Launches TITAN, the First Sealed, Conduction-Cooled, AI-Equipped, 1U/2U Rackmount Servers Offering Superior Ruggedness, Reliability, and Performance

October 14, 2019

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 14, 2019--

At the Association for the United States Army (AUSA) conference today, General Micro Systems (GMS) launched the industry’s first sealed, fanless, conduction-cooled rackmount servers with artificial intelligence (AI) and mil-circular (38999) connectors for superior ruggedness in the most demanding defense and aerospace applications. The American-designed, sourced, and manufactured TITAN, a fully configurable server, also uses up to four of Intel’s latest 2 nd gen Scalable Xeon ® processors, with all features coming together in a 1U or 2U chassis to provide the performance, mil-spec reliability, and complete silence required for extremely rugged battlefield environments.

“Many military designers continue to use commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) air-cooled, rackmount servers in buildings, command posts, ships and submarines, or even in the back of MRAPs and Strykers, but servers designed for data centers can’t handle the dirt, dust, chemicals, or extreme temperatures they will encounter in the field,” said Ben Sharfi, chief architect and CEO, General Micro Systems. “The sealed, fanless, expandable and dense TITAN offers everything these designers want in a deployable rackmount server: superior processing performance, American reliability and ruggedness, and more expandability options and secure data storage than found in any other 1U or 2U rackmount server. Even better, we’ve done it all—from design to manufacturing—here in America. We made no compromises at all when creating this server.”

Extreme Density, Expandability, and Conduction CoolingSets TITAN Apart

TITAN differs from other rackmount servers on the market in part for its extreme density and expandability. As a single 1U or 2U chassis, each TITAN combination includes more CPU cores, networking I/O, memory, PCIe card add-in options, removable encrypted storage, and reliably cooled Nvidia ® Tesla general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) AI co-processors than any other 1U or 2U rackmount server.

TITAN is available in both air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions. The latter offers the superior reliability conduction cooling has become known for in fighter aircraft and armored vehicles, with sealed systems that dramatically reduce radiated emissions and offer superior TEMPEST results and better security. Without fans, TITAN rackmount servers can be placed in close proximity to operators who no longer need to wear uncomfortable hearing protection for noise mitigation. In addition, available “keyed” 38999 military-style connectors ease installation and maintenance, and radically increase the mean time between failure (MTBF) as compared with flimsy COTS connectors.

In addition to boasting 96 total cores, the unique 4-way, quad-socket, Intel 2 nd gen Scalable Xeon ® processors are ideal for high-performance computing (HPC), symmetric multi-processing (SMP), NUMA architectures, AI, data mining, image processing, and more. The fully configurable TITAN can include the following capabilities:

“The TITAN family of rackmount servers also allows program-specific customization for any application or platform requirement, putting them—especially the fully equipped, conduction-cooled option—into a class of their own,” Sharfi added.
