Edge Server System for Superior Graphics Processing | SGS 2018-02-23T02:14:27+00:00


A mobile edge server appliance



The SGS mobile edge server is a 2U, 2-node device designed specifically for GPU-intensive operations at the network edge, such as streaming video and distributed computing applications such as blockchain. Requiring no specialized facilities or expensive and bulky data center equipment such as fans, CRAC units, and chillers, the SGS has substantial benefits over air-cooled equivalents:


  • Fanless operation

  • Reduces floorspace up to 75%.

  • Reduces total energy usage up to 40%

  • Uses no water
  • Eliminates air handling units

  • No air filters

  • Eliminates mechanical refrigeration

  • Eliminates evaporation and water treatment

  • No need for humidity control

  • Improves reliability and server lifetime

  • Nearly silent operation
