Accelerators support up to 8 PCIe x16 Gen 2 I/O cards.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring 21 in. chassis, 2U Accelerator Platforms include host cable adapters, 1 m cables, and dual 850 W power supplies. Internal system monitor reports parameter status through Ethernet port on rear of enclosure. Model OSS-PCIe-2U-ENCL-EXP-4-1 supports 4 double-wide cards with single PCIe x16 interface, while Model OSS-PCIe-2U-ENCL-EXP-4-2 supports 4 double-wide cards with 2 PCIe x16 interfaces, and Model OSS-PCIe-2U-ENCLEXP-8-2 supports 8 single-wide cards with 2 PCIe x16 interfaces.

Original Press Release:

One Stop Systems' 2U Acceleration Platform Supports Eight PCIe x16 Gen 2 I/O Cards in 21" Deep Chassis

o Three versions support both single-wide and doublewide I/O cards

o Includes one or two PCIe x16 Gen 2 host adapters and cables

ESCONDIDO, Calif., August 3, 2009 - One Stop Systems (OSS), a pioneer in PCI Express-over-cable (Direct AttachedTM) adapters and expansion products, introduces its 2U acceleration platform, supporting up to eight PCIe x16 Gen 2 I/O cards. The three versions of acceleration platforms include either one or two PCIe x16 Gen 2 interfaces, allowing more than one host computer to access cards. Host cable adapters and one-meter cables are included with the platforms. The 2U platform supports both single wide and doublewide boards. Dual 850-watt power supplies provide redundant
power for GPU's (graphics processing units) or other high-speed I/O cards requiring high power output. The platform is equipped with superior cooling and an internal system monitor that reports parameter status through an Ethernet port on the rear of the enclosure.

Outstanding features

The 21" chassis is 8" shorter than other conventional chassis currently available. In addition, all boards are accessed through the rear of the chassis, allowing cables to be connected to I/O ports. Removable trays allow easy installation of any full-length PCIe x16 add-in boards. The enclosure top is held by a single thumbscrew in the rear of the chassis, making it easy to remove. With the trays removed, boards can be installed in the slots and the tray re-inserted in the chassis.

"The 2U accelerator adds to the growing number of the OSS Direct Attached expansion systems," said Steve Cooper, CEO. "Supporting up to eight high-speed I/O cards with dual interfaces, each supporting 80Gb/s throughput, makes this accelerator the first of its kind on the market today. We are extremely pleased with reports that current customers are seeing actual throughputs of 7GB/s. One Stop Systems has continued to set the pace for the PCIe over cable market, having been first to market with many of the cable adapters and downstream devices on the market today. Today we have the
largest selection of these products available. Therefore, it's no surprise that we are first again with this powerful compute platform."

Platform versions

The three versions of the 2U accelerator are the "4-1" (OSS-PCIe-2U-ENCL-EXP-4-1) which supports four doublewide cards with a single PCIe x16 interface, the "-4-2" (OSS-PCIe-2U-ENCL-EXP-4-2) supporting four doublewide cards with two PCIe x16 interfaces, and the "8-2" (OSS-PCIe-2U-ENCLEXP-8-2) supporting eight singlewide cards with two PCIe x16 interfaces. OEM volume pricing starts at $2,395. All models are available now.
