Supermicro® Releases a new line of All-Flash NVMe and SSD-based Super Servers Solutions Optimized for Enterprise, Data Center and Cloud-Scale.
These solutions address the growing demands for consistent high IOPS, greater compute, memory and storage density for Tier one mission critical applications. Supermicro’s latest NVMe Virtual SAN Ready Node SuperServer® delivers the industry’s highest performance and density in a 1U Ultra 10x NVMe solution (SYS-1028U-VSNF Series) scalable for Enterprise, Data Center and Cloud-scale deployments. The 2U Ultra 24x NVMe SuperServer® (SYS-2028U-TN24RT+) increases hot-swap NVMe density and even higher density configurations up to 24x 2.5” hot-swap NVMe per 1U are available. In addition, two new 2U all-flash SSD based Virtual SAN Ready Node solutions in Ultra (SYS-2028U-VSNF series) and TwinPro™ (SYS-2028TP-VSNF series) architectures support up to 480 virtual machines in 4 nodes.
Large Bandwidth and Latency Improvements with True Hot-Swap Capability:
The primary benefits of Supermicro SuperServer® solutions with NVMe support include improved performance (throughput and latency), hot-swap capability, ability to support many true hot-swap NVMe drives per server, cost-effectiveness compared to add-on card based solutions, and availability of many cost-optimized models from which to choose. Supermicro is the first to market with true hot-swap support for NVMe SSD drives. This feature allows easy addition of storage capacity through the addition of SSDs, the replacement of existing SSDs with higher capacity units, or replacement of failed drives, while the server system is in operation. Additionally, the hot-swap feature protects against surprise removals, random device failures, or operator errors. Software hardening from Supermicro on its NVMe server product line provides an excellent protection against these all too-common data center issues.
The SuperServers are optimized for data intensive workloads and Virtual SAN Ready Node applications delivers extreme performance, density and scalability surpassing the demands of Tier one mission critical applications.
