General Micro Systems, Inc. (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) has introduced a conduction-cooled, fully ruggedized, Secure Virtual Machine (SVM) server with six hardware independent I/O modules. Designed to replace multiple workstations using virtual machine technology, Tarantula (SO302 4-in-1) incorporates an enterprise-level Layer 2 or Layer 3 intelligent switch for high-speed connectivity. Consisting of a host CPU module and 18-port intelligent Gigabit Ethernet switch module, both housed in one low-profile, lightweight package (smaller than a shoe box), Tarantula is appropriate for applications requiring ultra-efficient information sharing between several computers serving varied purposes. Intel’s most powerful Xeon processor, the Ivy-Bridge-EP, is the host CPU driver and features 10 physical cores each operating up to 2.4 GHz, with the ability to TurboBoost to 3.0 GHz. Support for hyperthreading expands its capability to 20 logical cores. In one small assembly, the server is said to:
- Optimize processing performance of each SVM.
- Speed data in and out of the box.
- Support the widest array of I/O devices
- Have the ability to overlay live video between different applications.
