OSS Ships New Gen 5 AI Edge Compute Accelerator
ESCONDIDO, Calif., Feb. 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One Stop Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSS), a leader in AI Transportable solutions at the edge, has begun shipping its latest Gen 5 4U Pro Accelerator System to a large composable infrastructure provider. OSS expects shipments of this compute accelerator to the customer to total between $4 million and $6 million over the next three years.
For AI workflows at the edge, this latest Gen 5 4U Pro Accelerator delivers twice the interconnect bandwidth performance over Gen 4. The accelerator also includes upgraded power and cooling to support multiple NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs with PCIe Gen 5, resulting in 4.8x the AI inference performance using FP8 precision compared to the previous generation.
“Our customer’s adoption of this product for their leading-edge composable infrastructure platform represents a strong validation of our superior capabilities in PCI Express expansion and AI accelerator technology,” stated OSS president and CEO, Mike Knowles. “Our customers are able to stay at the forefront of the latest high-performance computing technology with our highly scalable, interoperable solutions.”
This customer has used the previous generation OSS 4U Pro to rapidly scale GPU power and NVMe storage. Now with this latest version, OSS anticipates its flexibility, advanced features and pure acceleration will unleash the capability of the customer’s software-defined composable infrastructure solutions for both its commercial and defense end customers.
The compute accelerator is expected to be deployed at the customer’s locations worldwide, which include commercial cloud data centers and military command posts that demand ‘performance without compromise.’
High-performance computing and resource-intensive AI workloads are on the rise in the edge computing market. Demand for edge solutions is projected to grow at a 37.9% CAGR to reach $155.9 billion by 2030, with the mobile edge segment expected to grow even faster at a 49.7% CAGR to reach $58.4 billion by 2032.
This growth is driving increased demand for expansion platforms like the OSS 4U Professional Accelerator, which is capable of processing, analyzing and acting upon vast amounts of sensor and other data in real time using the fastest and most rugged interconnect technology that OSS uniquely provides.
The system supports up to eight NVIDIA H100 GPUs that deliver 2.6x the FP64 performance compared to the previous generation. It also supports four PCIe Gen 5 x16 HIB/NIC slots for up to 256GB/s of sustained data throughput.
The 4U Pro can be configured to provide 16 single-width PCIe Gen 5 x8 slots for FPGA data ingest or the latest storage add-in cards. The Gen 5 4U Pro also includes proprietary OSS Unified Baseboard Management Controller (U-BMC) software that enables dynamic fan speed control and an Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) for system monitoring that integrates seamlessly with the host server system management.
U-BMC manages, monitors and controls the telemetry of OSS products with advanced features that set OSS systems apart. It securely enables OSS customers to unify their systems management and enjoy unique benefits when using several OSS products simultaneously, such as for data acquisition, data storage, AI acceleration and autonomous vehicle compute.
The rugged chassis design makes it suitable for use outside the datacenter environment. All together, these features make the Gen 5 4UP the ideal accelerator expansion platform for the entire AI workflow at the edge.
