One Stop Systems (OSS) designs and manufactures high speed computing systems for high performance computing (HPC) applications that require fast processing and storing large data sets of information. These applications include AI (artificial intelligence), machine learning, seismic exploration, and security and defense. OSS systems are built using the latest GPU (graphical processing unit) and solid-state flash (memory) technologies and draw upon years of expertise in designing and manufacturing custom systems for OEMs. OSS has a history of being first to market with many solutions for emerging technologies. With previous experience in designing custom industrial compute systems, OSS first began designing and manufacturing custom systems for defense, manufacturing, and telecommunications customers. When PCI Express (PCIe), the component-to component interconnect used in all computers today was first introduced by Intel Corporation in 2005, OSS was first to produce PCIe box-to-box components. PCIe is the fastest interconnect produced to date. Today OSS is one of the largest providers of PCIe adapters and expansion components used world-wide. When GPU technology and solid-state flash were first introduced, OSS began designing systems that maximized the effectiveness of these technologies. Today OSS produces compute systems with large numbers of GPUs and flash memory to allow faster processing. The more GPUs and flash devices available to a server the faster that system can process and store/recover data, thus saving time and money for those applications. A readily recognized example is video imaging in defense applications when knowing battlefield parameters quickly is paramount.

What Sets OSS Apart

Several factors differentiate OSS from other suppliers of HPC solutions.

  • Our expertise in PCIe expansion and building custom systems allows us to use a greater quantity of GPUs and flash devices than other suppliers.
  • We design systems that both attach to existing servers through PCIe and systems with the servers included.
  • OSS systems can be clustered together to build massive compute engines that occupy less space and power than conventional systems.
  • OSS produces the software required to operate large storage systems used exclusively by defense systems and commercial applications.

Our business model utilizes our products in two ways.

  • OSS sells systems to OEM customers who use them in their own data centers for their own applications.
  • OSS leases space on its own systems in its own data center for customers who don't want to make the infrastructure investment of owning their own systems.

One Stop Systems' niche is in providing custom, purpose-built platforms with the latest GPUs and flash devices that allow servers to access large numbers of these devices.
