Supermicro’s X13 systems with 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (formerly codenamed Sapphire Rapids) will enable new performance levels utilizing the state-of-the-art technology including DDR5, PCI-E 5.0, Compute Express Link™ 1.1, and Intel® Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX).
Our JumpStart program offers remote access to one of our top-end X13 systems for qualified customers to validate, test, and benchmark their own workloads with a few simple steps.
- How do I access the JumpStart server?
Go to https://www.supermicro.com/sso/jumpstart and refer to the provided document and instruction that comes with server credentials.
- How many sessions can I have open at once?
Currently, we are limiting the sessions to one VNC, one SSH, and one IPMI session per server.
- What happens to the server after I am done with my demo?
The server is manually secure erased; the BIOS and firmware are reflashed; and the OS is re-installed with new credentials.
- Is the X13 server on a public IP address?
No. The server can reach out to the Internet to get files, but it is not directly addressable to the Internet. We are using the jump server as a proxy so you can get access to the server you are authorized on.
- Should I do sensitive data processing on the demo server?
Please use only anonymized data since this server may have different security policies than are required within your organization.
- If we leave data on the server, will it be backed up?
No. We are completely erasing and resetting servers for each demo and are not making backups. Please do not store important/sensitive data on the demo platforms because they will be erased.
If the standard JumpStart configuration does not meet your testing needs, please contact your Supermicro representative or the send us an email at FastTrack2SMC@supermicro.com to discuss your requirements and consider other options for providing you the required solution.
