The Supermicro Twin Family represents a revolution in Green Computing designed to support customers' critical applications and also reduce Data Center TCO to help preserve the environment.
Habana Labs, an Intel-owned AI company, has partnered with server maker Supermicro to provide high-performance, high-efficiency AI computing in the form of new training and inference servers that will power the upcoming NSF-funded Voyager supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center(SDSC).
The Supermicro MicroBlade enclosures provide power, cooling, management and network functions for multiple blade servers. The 6U models can house up to 28 blades; the 3U models can house up to 14 blades. In this manual, “blade” or “blade unit” refers to a single blade server. “Blade system” refers to the enclosure, blades units, and various management and networking modules. "Modules" refer to management, switch, network, or other specialized components.
Intel made its official launch of its 3rd generation Xeon Scalable processor based upon its 10nm process for enterprise and data center applications. The product line can provide up to 40 cores per processer and up to 2.65 times higher performance gain over a 5-year-old system.
Like clockwork, the major data center original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) announced a torrent of new server chassis built around Intel’s Ice Lake Xeon Scalable processors. The new processors, announced this morning, deliver a 20% uplift in instructions per clock over the previous generation, but for OEMs, Intel’s new third-gen Xeons deliver more than a performance boost.
Intel launched a new batch of third-generation Xeon server processors today. Significantly, these are Ice Lake processors—meaning Intel's 10 nm process, not the increasingly outdated 14 nm process that the majority of Intel's lineup has been stuck on for many years now.
