Supermicro expands single-processor systems portfolio
Super Micro Computer (SMCI) has expanded its portfolio of single-processor systems that are based on the Intel Xeon E-2300 and 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
These systems are able to support a wide range of applications in growing vertical markets and, as a result, customers are able to optimise the exact configuration needed for their applications spanning entry-level servers for the intelligent edge to data centre-class systems.
Using the Xeon E-2300 processors, both the MicroBlade and MicroCloud are able to support applications that require a high-density computing infrastructure, including content streaming, EDA, interactive gaming, and bare-metal cloud instances.
Businesses will also be able to benefit from rackmount systems based on this processor family, with increased I/O and security features making these systems suitable for appliances and for security applications.
“Our multi-node solutions and high-volume rackmount systems enable a new class of computing for enterprises and cloud providers, allowing for a new generation of applications that optimise business performance and TCO,” sid Charles Liang, president, and CEO of Supermicro. “Our expanded portfolio of single-processor application-optimised systems will provide improved performance and efficiency for targeted workloads, including telco, edge, storage, security, AI inferencing, and bare-metal provisioning.”
These new systems feature PCI-E 4.0 I/O, which removes bottlenecks and speeds up applications compared to systems with earlier generations of processors. They also now include support for Intel’s SGX security features. The new single-socket systems are available in various form factors, including multi-node servers, rackmount servers, and workstations.
These single-socket 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor-based systems are able to support up to 16 DIMM slots, enabling up to 4TB of DRAM or 6TB of DRAM + Intel Optane Persistent Memory (Pmem). The Intel Xeon E-2300 processor-based systems deliver essential server performance for small businesses with up to 8 cores and 128 GB of DDR4 memory at 95W TDP.
