RELEASE: Supermicro Expands Portfolio of Storage Solutions for I/O Intensive Workloads

(Information sent by the signatory company)

- Supermicro expands its portfolio of storage solutions for I/O-intensive workloads with industry-standard All-Flash servers using EDSFF E3.S and E1.S storage drives across multiple product lines

The new server addresses the critical need for a high-density, petascale storage system in a balanced NUMA architecture.

SAN JOSE, California, March 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Supermicro, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a total provider of IT solutions for cloud, AI/ML, storage and 5G/Edge, announces the latest addition to its revolutionary family of high-performance, high-density, petascale-class NVMe all-flash servers. Supermicro systems in this family of high-performance storage products will support the next-generation EDSFF form factor, including E3.S and E1.S devices, in form factors that accommodate 16 and 32 PCIe Gen5 drive bays. High performance NVMe.

The initial offering of the updated product line will support up to half a petabyte of storage space in a 16-bay 1U rackmount system, followed by a full petabyte of storage space in a 32-bay 2U rackmount system for Intel and AMD PCIe Gen5 platforms. All Supermicro systems supporting the E1.S or E3.s form factors allow customers to take advantage of multiple application-optimized servers.

EDSFF (Enterprise and Datacenter Standard Form Factor) is an industry standard developed and maintained by the SNIA. This group continues to develop standards for storage and data center specifications. EDSFF-specified storage devices are available in a range of capacities and performance and have increased scalability and serviceability compared to previous generations of storage devices. EDSFF form factor storage uses the NVMe protocol with the same PCIe interface and edge connectors.

"Supermicro continues to respond to the needs of our users with innovative solutions for the workloads of today and tomorrow," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "With up to a petabyte of storage in a standard rackmount system, users can quickly access huge amounts of data at their fingertips. The new storage system is compact and energy efficient and will offer our users the lowest latency and the highest bandwidth in the industry.The performance and capacity of these new systems enable customers to gain insights using advanced AI technologies.Thanks to our building block architecture, we are able to bring the latest technologies to market more quickly quickly, providing users with advanced systems as part of our total rack-scale computing solution offerings."

As the evolution of CPU, GPU, and memory technologies continue to increase the speed and amount of data processed by modern computing clusters, there is also a need to improve storage performance to feed data to applications without becoming a burden. bottleneck that slows down the entire system. Supermicro's Petascale All-Flash servers offer industry-leading performance and storage capacity, enabling customers to reduce the number of rack-mount systems required to meet their hot storage requirements, lowering total cost proprietary.

The new Intel-based systems are powered by dual 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with up to 270W TDP and contain up to 32 DIMMs of DDR5-4800 MHz memory, for a total of 8TB of memory. In addition, 4th generation AMD EPYC™ processors power AMD-based systems up to 350W TDP and 24 DIMMs of DDR5-4800MHz memory. These systems are designed for compute intensive applications with massive I/O requirements and large internal memory requirements.

Two full-height, half-length PCIe Gen5 x16 slots support advanced xPUs and smart NICs, allowing users to streamline operations using the emerging NVMe-Over-Fabric or GPU-accelerated storage that is now disrupting traditional IT. Two additional Supermicro PCIe Gen5 x16 AIOM (Advanced I/O Module) slots provide increased field serviceability and plug-in compatibility with a wide spectrum of commercially available OCP 3.0 network cards. The new NUMA symmetric balance architecture reduces latency by providing the shortest signal paths to drives, a balance of bandwidth to storage, and flexible networking options. The symmetrical design also facilitates even airflow throughout the system, allowing the use of more powerful processors.
