OSS to supply U.S. Intelligence AI project with liquid-cooled storage server at the edge

Rugged high-performance compute provider One Stop Systems (OSS) will be providing a liquid immersion-cooled data storage system for use on a deployable ground station. Procured through a global defense prime contractor, the company says the pilot project represents the first liquid immersion-cooled high-performance compute solution for a U.S. intelligence agency mobile ground station application and a new intelligence community end user for OSS.

The initiative will leverage OSS’s rugged mobile edge technology, centered around the company’s Gen 4 PCIe 3U-SDS configured as a high-speed NVMe data recording system, capable of delivering 52GB/s of sustained storage bandwidth.

OSS plans to integrate two 3U-SDS units into a liquid immersion-cooled system, which will be a component of a deployable ground station situated at the edge. Engineered to withstand the harshest of environments, the custom storage accelerator system promises ruggedized performance, according to the company.

“This project, for a major government intelligence agency contracted through a prime contractor partner, represents expansion of our mission applications into the intelligence community, consistent with our growth strategies,” says OSS VP of sales, Robert Kalebaugh.

“It also demonstrates our commitment to provide high throughput, ruggedized storage capabilities and solutions that are directly impacting the AI/ML mission objectives of emerging Department of Defense platforms. We anticipate that this initial design win will lead to other deployments that require high speed, low latency compute accelerators and data acquisition solutions.”

The immersion-cooled technology harnesses non-conductive, chemically inert fluids, akin to water, to dissipate heat from electronics. The company notes that the design facilitates compact, rugged platforms boasting high performance and minimal noise, crucial attributes for edge computing solutions.

Powered by two Intel processors and 16 NVMe storage drives, the 3U-SDS system is configured for high-speed data acquisition, recording, and analysis. It boasts the capacity to ingest, record, and store up to 960 terabytes of raw RF data signals onto high-speed NVMe SSDs.

The project follows the company’s recently announced direct to chip liquid cooled solution for a foreign navy submarine application expanding OSS’ cooling solution approaches for rugged high performance computing at the edge.
