The Importance of High-performance Servers
In the digital age, people pursue better computing performance with more stability. While demands continue to increase, so does computing performance. As server sizes become smaller, centralized data centers have evolved into edge computing and B2C products. Servers are widely used in vehicles, whether by sea, by land, or by air, servers can handle various tasks on these vehicles. For example, vehicle-mounted servers provide traffic detection, notifications of traffic conditions, obstacle avoidance, and emergency braking. These tasks all require fast processing done with a high-performance server.
The Three Major Threats and How We Can Evaluate and Implement Safety Measures
There could be serious consequences when a server on a vehicle fails to operate. Sometimes the lives of the passengers can be put at risk. There are several main risks for servers in a vehicle, namely long-term high or low temperatures, drastic temperature changes, and continuous vibration.
1. Servers that are exposed to high or low temperatures for prolonged periods can cause them to shut down.
2. Drastic temperature changes may cause components in the server to malfunction due to thermal expansion and contraction.
3. Continuous vibration can cause components in the server to loosen or fall off, leading to server failure.
For an aircraft, drastic temperature changes occur during takeoff and landing. Planes will also be in a low-temperature environment when flying at a fixed altitude, not to mention the vibrations that occur during the entire flight. Cars can also run into the same issue when driving in polar climates or deserts. Vibrations will always occur during driving, especially if road conditions are bad.
For the three major threats mentioned above, Allion can provide a series of comprehensive evaluations and tests:
1. Evaluate the limits of the highest temperature, lowest temperature, and degree of vibration during usage.
2. Evaluate the value of the highest temperature, lowest temperature, and degree of vibration which cannot be recovered.
3. Run tests with high temperature, low temperature, and vibrations similar to actual usage scenarios to ensure proper operation.
After servers undergo the evaluations mentioned above, clients can understand the limits, risks, and probabilities of accidents with the simulation test results. This allows clients to avoid product malfunctions after the products are transported onto the vehicles.
