OSS: 4U value expansion system provides high-density PCIe expansions

One Stop Systems introduces the 4U Value Expansion System (4UV). The 4UV is a flexible 18-slot rackmount expansion platform that provides thousands of expansion possibilities at a value price. The two standard configurations support up to eight GPUs or up to sixteen PCIe NVMe SSDs with almost any x86 or Power server on the market today.

The first configuration allows any server to add up to 16 PCIe NVMe add-in card SSDs to any node by utilizing 16 PCIe 3.0 slots, two host connections and 2000W of redundant, load-sharing, hot-swap power supplies.  By using AIC NVMe SSDs in an expansion system like the 4UV, servers are not limited to only a few SSDs due to lack of available slots. AIC NVMe SSDs outperform 2.5” NVMe SSDs in throughput, available PCIe lanes and capacities. The 4UV allows any server to scale AIC SSDs into large all-flash arrays for the best performance possible. The second configuration favors high powered compute accelerators such as GPUs and FPGAs by combining ten PCIe 3.0 slots with two PCIe 3.0 host connections and 4000W of load sharing power. This configuration provides support for the highest powered, two slot wide GPUs on the market today allowing for the most TFLOPS of compute power per node. In addition, two fan choices allow for both high-capacity GPU systems or manual speed control PWM capability in the same 4UV platform.
