RES AI XR6 4U, 8 drive Rugged HPC Server

Compact 22.5 Inch Deep, Rear I/O Supercomputing Server

Leveraging the latest data center processing and co-processing technologies to accelerate the most demanding workloads, Mercury’s RES AI 4U supercomputing server packs up to two Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, eight double-wide NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, 2TB DDR4 ECC memory, and 120TB of storage in a compact 49.5lb server form-factor. 

Configurable to your HPC Field Application

Equipped with 9 PCIe 3.0 slots that accommodate a mix of GPUs, FPGA accelerators and other expansion cards, RES AI 4U maximizes scalability and minimizes the overall computing footprint to accelerate an array of High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads in the field. Eight hot-pluggable, front-access drives support the latest 2.5", 15mm high and 7mm high SAS3, SATA and NVME drives and can be configured for redundancy. 

To ensure sustained optimal performance in almost any environment, our 4U server minimizes airborne and structural noise and is certified to multiple International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and military standard specifications including MIL-STD 810G, 901D, 167-1, 1474D, 740-2, and 461F.  Patented memory stabilization technology prevents disconnect during system shock and vibration while 2+1 redundant AC power supplies enhance availability. 

Maximize Throughput with Parallel Computing

Powered by eight of the latest NVIDIA® Volta architecture GPUs, RES AI 4U harnesses parallel processing to maximize throughput, boost productivity and push the boundaries of compute-heavy mission-critical applications such as signal intelligence (SIGINT), cryptography, deep learning, artificial intelligence (AI), surveillance, sensor fusion, visualization, image processing, tracking and big data analytics. Other GPU options are available. 

Scale Supercomputing Applications from the Cloud to the Edge

Compatible with multiple operating systems, applications and software, RES AI adheres to open standards and integrates the latest commercial technologies to support supercomputing from the Cloud to the Edge. 

The RES AI 4U is designed in the U.S. and manufactured in AS5553 compliant, AS9100D and ISO9001 facilities to maintain stringent quality standards.
