A global leader in high-performance and high-efficiency server and storage technology, Supermicro is releasing its most extensive line of X10 Server Building Block Solutions this week in San Francisco at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2014. This line features the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600/1600 v3 family. Supermicro's new 1U/2U Ultra SuperServer® solutions will be one of the main highlights at the show. Combined with the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3, this server provides outstanding performance up to and impressive 1.5TB of DDR4 2133MHz Reg ECC memory in 24x DIMMs and Intel® Xeon® Phi' coprocessor support. The new adaptable Ultra architecture easily supports dual or quad port 1G, 10GBASE-T, 10G SFP+, 40G Ethernet InfiniBand options, 12Gb/s SAS3 with hardware RAID, hot-swappable NVMe storage, and up to either eight PCI-E 3.0 Add-on-Cards (AoC) in 1U or four AoCs in 2U. To top it off with, each customizable solution is equipped with Supermicro’s new Titanium level high-efficiency Digital power supplies that help cut power consumption while boosting performance per and giving you more bang for your buck. The vast X10 line consists of dual and uni-processor solutions which are available in a wide range of DP/UP motherboards on many different platforms such as TwinPro', MicroBlade, FatTwin', SuperBlade®, Intel® Xeon® Phi' coprocessor, SuperStorage, SuperWorkstation, Data Center Optimized (DCO) and Data Center Optimized (DCO).
Out of all storage platforms on the market today, Supermicro’s X10 Green Computing Solutions provide one of the most enhanced uni and dual processor servers which support the new Intel Xeon E5-2600/1600 v3 processors. According to Supermicro’s President and CEO, Charles Liang, "Leading the wave is our new 1U/2U Ultra SuperServers which integrate hot-swap NVMe SSDs and SAS3 storage with high bandwidth 10G/40G networking in a new thermal optimized architecture that minimizes fan count and fan power consumption to provide exactly the best platform for enterprise-class virtualization and hyper-scale computing applications. Combined with our new X10 TwinPro, MicroBlade and FatTwin systems as well as the industry's widest range of server building blocks with Titanium level high efficiency power supplies, Supermicro is delivering total solutions to address the critical power, space and cost challenges facing today's data driven businesses.
For Solution partners such as Supermicro, new Intel Xeon E5-2600/1600 v3 processors provide better power efficiency and increased performance which is necessary as we approach the new era of data centers and cloud environments as well as solutions to the challenges that lie ahead. "Together with Supermicro's diverse range of green server and storage solutions, we're helping customers to re-architect the data center for the digital services era," claimed Shannon Poulin, vice president of Data Center Group, Intel.
In addition to the new line of X10 servers, Supermicro will also be introducing the new compact Internet-of-Things (IoT) Gateway (SYS-E100-8Q). This features an Intel® Quark X1021 (2.2W TDP) SoC supported by a 4.1"x4" ultra-low power motherboard (MBD-A1SQN), 1x Micro SDHC up to 32GB, 2x Mini-PCI-E slots, 1x ZigBee module socket, TPM 1.2, 2x 10/100Mbps RJ45, onboard 512MB DDR3 ECC memory, 2x USB 2.0 (device & host), 1x RS485 via screw terminal interface, 1x RS-232 via DB9, 1x Analog Input 8 channel 12-bit and 1x DIO. This low-powered, compact system is perfect for such embedded applications as Retail store or Warehouse Hub, Smart Building/Home Gateway and and Smart Factory IoT Gateways.
