The Supermicro SuperBlade systems have been around for quite some time. The popular blade chassis come in a variety of form factors, including 4U, 6U, and 8U. Each size gives customers a different set of choices when ultimately selecting the blades that go inside.
Many readers at STH will know that we have been running a series around the future of data center technologies. Today, we are going to take a look at the impact of liquid cooling in the data center.
The Supermicro SYS-120U-TNR is a dual-socket Intel Xeon “Ice Lake” generation server. In this generation, Intel adds more cores, new instructions, and more platform capabilities.
The Supermicro 1124US-TNRP is a 1U server that leverages the new AMD EPYC 7003 processors. The server is part of Supermicro’s A+ Ultra family. If the name and the picture below are causing déjà vu, it is because we already review the near-identical Supermicro 1024US-TRT Server.
The Supermicro SYS-510P-WTR is a single-socket Intel Xeon “Ice Lake” generation server. In this generation, Intel’s newest processors offer a lot more for single-socket systems and Supermicro is taking advantage of the advancement.
The Supermicro AS-1024US-TRT is profound in that it is designed for a very competitive market. This dual-socket server is designed in Supermicro’s “Ultra” design language. Practically, that means that the layout and many of the features and design choices largely mirror those found on the company’s Ice Lake Xeon X12 servers.
Supermicro's 1023US-TR4 is a slim 1U dual-socket server designed for high-density compute environments in high-end cloud computing, virtualization, and enterprise applications. With support for AMD's EPYC 7001 and 7002 processors, this high-end server packs up to two 64-core Eypc Rome processors, allowing it to cram 128 cores and 256 threads into one slim chassis.
The Supermicro 1023US-TR4 is a 1U server designed for organizations looking for a high-end solution in environments that can benefit from dense compute power like virtualization and cloud computing. The 1024US-TR4 comes equipped with an H11DSU-iN motherboard, which features dual-socket support for AMD EPYC series processors and up to 8TB Registered ECC DDR4 3200MHz SDRAM via its 32 DIMM slots.
The Supermicro AOC-S100GC-i2C is perhaps one of the most interesting NICs that is on the market today. This is a dual 100GbE solution designed for Supermicro servers. What is somewhat different is that this NIC uses the Intel 800 series or Columbiaville networking first announced in 2019. Intel went into production in the summer of 2020 so this is one of the first NICs out there with Intel’s new “foundational” NIC stack. There are some major benefits and changes to Intel’s networking offering here.
