When one thinks of Kubernetes (K8s), terms that often come to mind have to do with large-scale environments like “cloud-scale,” “unlimited expandability,” and even “ginormous.” However, the reality is that a significant portion of the IT world needs to start with much smaller K8s environments for development and production.
I first came to learn about Supermicro's E100-9W platform last year, which I had first written about here. The E100-9W is a fanless kit that is part of Supermicro's Embedded IoT family and targets similiar use cases to the Intel NUC such as Industrial Automation, Retail, Smart Medical Systems, Kiosks and Digital Signage.
In our Supermicro SYS-510T-MR review, we are going to see how this new Rocket Lake-E server fares. A few weeks ago we covered the Intel Xeon E-2300 series launch.
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.
Supermicro Ultra SuperServer SYS-120U-TNR does pack a lot of punch in to a 1U server. This unit supports dual 3rd gen Intel Xeon scalable CPUs, has 32 DIMM slots and can support up to 12TB of memory. System has 12 hot swappable drive bays that can be configured as SATA or NVMe and connected via PCIe 4.0.
It has taken years, but finally, Supermicro has “STH” series motherboards. As part of the latest Intel Xeon E-2300 series launch, the company has rolled out four standard 1U rack servers, a pedestal server, two MicroCloud offerings, and two MicroBlade nodes.
Supermicro is best known for server hardware, but the company does occasionally dabble in the consumer-focused space. Its latest offering on that front is the SuperO C9Z590-CGW, a board based around Intel’s flagship mainstream chipset.
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.
