Supermicro® NVMe Platforms

NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is a scalable, high performance CPU PCI-E Gen3 direct connect to NVMe devices, designed for Client and Enterprise server systems using SSDs technology. The technology was developed to reduce latency and provide faster CPU to data storage device performance for advanced computing.

By deploying Supermicro NVMe, customers can benefit from reduced latency, increased Input/Output operations per second (IOPS), and lower power consumption. The ROI benefits from NVMe deployments is immediate and substantial. Supermicro solutions will perform more work in less time which translates into lower costs and increased revenues.

The new generation X11 NVMe systems take this exceptional technology to the next level, offering even higher performance and first-to-market technologies. Supermicro NVMe SuperServers offer up to: 3TB ECC 3DS LRDIMM or RDIMM DDR4-2666MHz memory in 24 DIMMs, 7 PCI-E slots SAS 3.0/SATA 3.0/NVMe hot-swap HDD/SSD support, 10GBase-T/10G SFP+/56Gbps FDR InfiniBand networking options, redundant Titanium Level (96%+) Digital power supplies, IPMI 2.0 plus KVM with dedicated LAN and support the latest generation Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family CPUs for up to 205W TDP.

The Supermicro server solutions with NVMe support are targeted at HPC, Oil and Gas, 3D modeling and Graphical design workstation, HFT, SQL Database, Search Engine, High Security Encryption datacenter, VDI, Aerospace and Automobile design center, Cluster and Supercomputer applications; in Cloud, Virtualization, and Enterprise environments.

NVMe Benefits

  • Large throughput gains (6x)
  • Substantial latency improvements (7x)
  • Shared common backplane improves flexibility of drive choice
  • 2.5" U.2 (SFF-8639) form factor for improved serviceability vs. PCI-E Flash cards (hot-swap)
  • Improved power efficiency
  • Ultra-fast performance for demanding workloads
