1. Unparalleled Parallel Computing 

 - this is how it works 
 

In fact, C4ISR incorporates every army function and operation. It determines faster speed, better resolutions and decisive actions- making it the key to mission success.
We want to synergize tactical, operational, and strategic performance. Information and data flowing through multiple systems  must be received and disseminated by the commander timely and accurately. 
Harnessing information and data as new source of powerful weapon has become crucial nowadays. And real-time reaction is vital. That's why 7StarLake's Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions emphasize on ultra-high performance system integration. We focus on the capabilities to control - because control lead to dominance.
 

C4ISR system

SR800 & HORUS200 are equipped with Ultra-High Performance Intel® Xeon® D-1587 CPU. In a scenario where virtual machine is integrated with C4ISR system, the 16-core processor allows the CPU resources be reallocated to one or more virtual machines. For instance, four cores are assigned to one virtual machine would mean the user now has maximum four different operating systems running on the same physical computer at the same time. 

In this way, IT operators will no longer be disturbed by numerous interfaces, monitors and humongous servers. Various and complex system connecting one another should work coordinately, interpreting the received data and representing the commander's order.

All data and assets can be managed from one location. Ideal hardware utilization, expansion potentials and high efficiency operation are further guaranteed. In battlefield reality, where one second difference defines success and failure, the application of virtualization machine has become indispensable.
 

We want to synergize tactical, operational, and strategic performance.  Therefore, information and data flowing through multiple systems must be received by the commander timely and accurately; same as those to be disseminated.

2. Virtual Machine Application 


Less physical hardware and more expansion potentials, they are not the only reason why organizations and enterprises are turning more to Virtual Machine. 

In fact, authorities and private sectors are using virtual machines because it grants users multiple available fields for running operation system under a limited situation. That is to say, the utilization of virtual machine effectively save cost and achieves ultra-high efficiency.

Take SR800 & HORUS200  for example, the CPU resources of their 16-core Ultra-High Performance Intel® Xeon® D-1587 processor can be allocated to one or more virtual machines. Various operating systems can thus run at the same time, without having to adopt extra physical hardware and server. Meanwhile, all data and assets can be managed from one location. It achieves an ideal hardware utilization and lead to unlimited expansion potentials, which undoubtedly are the keys to mission success.

 

Virtual machine not only helps saving money on hardware and energy costs. Nowadays enterprises are also taking advantage of its safe virtual environment. Damage to the virtual machine would not cause damage to the physical server. Disaster recovery is quick. In addition, when running operating system in virtual environment, license key required by the virtual OS would be the same as that of the hard drive ID.

3. Hardware Secure Erase - AES Encryption

 

Hardware Secure Erase

 

Under emergency situation, when written data needs to be erased immediately, a Secure Erase Button is indispensable. Instant Erase is a particular feature for SED (Self Encryption Drive). It is faster than Quick Erase to make all written data invalid. The encryption and decryption is controlled by an AES key on the path; once the AES key is replaced by a new one, the data becomes unrecognizable.

The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is one of the block cipher specification adopted by U.S. government. AES is enhanced and approved by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), and is now used worldwide.

The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is one of the block cipher specification adopted by U.S. government. AES is enhanced and approved by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), and is now used worldwide. 
 

 High speed and low RAM 
 requirements  

The kind of cryptographic module can encrypt and decrypt rapidly on software and hardware with relatively less memory, thus is easier to practice and implement.

 Unbreakable Encryption
 Algorithms 

The larger size of key adopted, the more possible keys there are. Take 256-bit encryption for instance, it generates 2^256 possible keys, taking more years than the age of the universe (13.8 billion years) for hackers to break through.

 Perfectly Secure Environment 
 

AES Key is generated randomly through various rounds of algorithms. Each round consists of several processing steps, even the supplier and the user cannot access to the cypher. To date, AES encryption has never been broken in a way its predecessor DES (Data Encryption Standard) was way back in 1999.

 

Taking into consideration the strength, versatility, and speed of the cipher, AES Encryption is undoubtedly the best encryption program out there. To guard top-secret information, given the current state of technology, governments and the military select, and only use the AES Encryption.

To ensure stability, an aluminum heat spreader is placed directly on the EMI Filter/MIL-STD-461 compliance power module to absorb and transfer heat to the external cooling medium. Through the mechanism, the operating temperature can decrease up to 15~20%.

2. Exclusive Aluminum Heat Spreader for 128GB RDIMM
Copper heat pipes absorb heat efficiently from the RDIMM, then spread the collected heat to the aluminum cover as well as upper aluminum heat sink to dissipate.

3. Copper Heat Spreader
99.9 % purity copper Nickel plated to prevent corrosion and rust after long-term use.

4. High Efficiency Copper Heat Pipe
Placed directly on the CPU, the copper heat pipes evaporates the inside liquid while absorbing heat from the unit. The vapor then flows from the heat source (evaporator) to the cold interface (condenser) through heat pipes, and condenses back into a liquid – releasing the latent heat. The cycle of the liquid-vapor repeats by capillary forces, and the temperature of the device can be dropped significantly due to high heat transfer coefficients for boiling and condensation.
