RELEASE: Supermicro Launches Industry-Leading vSAN HCI Solution

- Supermicro launches industry-leading vSAN HCI solution, delivering up to 4.7x performance at 3x lower cost*

Supermicro BigTwin® Multi-Node HCI system with 4th Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors provides 2x the I/O bandwidth with PCIe 5.0 and up to 1.5x the memory bandwidth with DDR5 and supports built-in CPU throttles for workload-specific performance gains.

SAN JOSE, California, Aug. 22, 2023/PRNewswire/ -- Supermicro, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a total provider of IT solutions for cloud, AI/ML, storage, and 5G/Edge, today announced a new VMware vSAN solution optimized for running enterprise-class hyperconverged virtualized workloads. As virtualized workloads become more advanced, storage performance and processing power requirements increase, requiring increased capacity to meet application SLAs and maximize virtual machine density. This solution also uses the latest Intel AMX accelerator for AI workloads.

Compared to the Supermicro X11 BigTwin, Supermicro's benchmark tests showed up to 4.7x higher I/O performance and 8.2x lower latency on the HCIBench benchmark, image classification inference performance up to 4.9 times faster on the ResNet50 model and up to 4 times faster natural performance. Language processing performance in the BERT-Large model. In addition, the superior power and efficiency of the Supermicro X13 BigTwin architecture can deliver up to 3x cost and performance improvement within the same node footprint compared to a similar implementation based on previous generation Supermicro systems, creating an argument compelling for organizations to upgrade their aging infrastructure.

"Supermicro continues to lead the HCI industry with the first Gen5 vSAN solution based on 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors," said Charles Liang, Supermicro's president and CEO. "Our industry-leading Supermicro BigTwin platform supports the next generation of flash storage media in dense, multi-node form factors optimized for HCI to run vSAN out of the box. Supermicro's X13 BigTwin and vSAN customers can benefit from a 4.7x and 8.2x performance Lower latency in HCIBench benchmark with generation-over-generation performance improvements This solution allows customers to run more instances on the same hardware and rack space, improving performance and utilization while reducing costs.
