SAN FRANCISCO - Oct. 10, 2019 - PRLog -- Rugged computer and server supplier General Micro Systems (GMS) today challenged competitors and partners attending the Association for the United States Army (AUSA) conference next week to join its battle cry encouraging the Department of Defense to only buy servers from U.S. suppliers whose products are supplied, designed and built in America. This "Buy American Servers Again" initiative from GMS attempts to raise awareness of the risks associated with computer servers and electronics made outside of the U.S., especially in China.

Every server and rugged computing product GMS has on display at AUSA 2019 is designed and made in America. Servers like these are used in myriad military equipment and installations, from the Pentagon to naval vessels to deployed ground vehicles and forward-operating base command posts. Each server includes sensitive data from potentially millions of operators and sensors.

In June 2019, President Trump put five Chinese tech entities on a trade blacklist, and earlier this year, he signed an executive order barring the government from doing business with Chinese supplier Huawei (https://www.politico.com/story/2019/05/15/trump-ban-huawe...), citing security concerns. President Trump's "Executive Order on Securing the Information and Communications Technology and Services Supply Chain (https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive...)" calls the security situation a "national threat."

At AUSA, GMS is showcasing the following American-made and -manufactured products:

·       TITAN: the world's only conduction-cooled, MIL-SPEC 1U and 2U rackmount servers using up to four (4) Intel's latest second generation Scalable Xeon® processors

·       SHS Secure High-Speed Storage: removable, encryptable, high-density storage cartridge for GMS server-based data recorders and image processors with up to 64 TB of removable media

·       S1202-XVE: small form factor self-contained workstation mission computer driving up to three displays with optional artificial intelligence (AI) GPGPU

·       S422-SW: "shoebox-sized" fanless, rugged sensor-processing network server with enterprise-class 20x 10 Gigabit and 2x 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet ports, artificial intelligence (AI) GPGPU coprocessor, and secure removable drives

Where: Booth #7664 at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) annual meeting in Washington D.C., Oct. 14-16, 2019.
