General Micro Systems launches upgradeable secure server under

General Micro Systems, Inc. (GMS) has launched Apex, the “Forever Server” system that is compact, secure, exceptionally powerful, rugged and modular, the company said.

Designed for harsh use but able to evolve and upgrade as system needs change over many years, Apex is so densely packed that it can reduce an entire rack´s worth of functionality into a single product–also saving size, weight, power (SWaP) and total cost of ownership (TCO).

For these rugged environments, GMS designed Apex from the metal up to be not only ruggedly mil-ready, but to save money by consolidating many separate system boxes and functions into one server; and by making it easily upgradeable through modular subsystems that evolve as program, platform and technology needs change.

Based upon the GMS S2U server, Apex is a standard width 19-inch “total rack” compact dual Intel® Xeon® server system that replaces up to 17U worth of equivalent equipment in only 2U of shelf space. Using a “system of systems,” Apex contains six super-dense hot swappable modules that can each be upgraded and evolved over time–providing years of life evolution to DoD platforms and systems.

General Micro Systems (GMS) is the industry expert in highest-density, modular, compute-intensive, and rugged small form-factor embedded computing systems, servers, switches and smart displays. For more information, visit
