Bohs Hansen / 6 months ago
Supermicro announced the availability of new all-flash NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) 1U and 2U Ultra Servers. The new all-flash 2U Ultra servers don’t just offer 20 hot-swap NVMe SSDs, they can deliver a groundbreaking 18 million IOPS of storage performance in a very compact size.
“To achieve the lowest possible latency, Supermicro’s new all-flash 1U and 2U Ultra servers are designed to support 20 directly attached hot-swap NVMe SSDs,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “These new X11 servers feature a non-blocking design, allocating 80 PCI-E lanes to the 20 NVMe SSDs for uncompromised Gen 3 PCI-E x4 direct connections that achieve maximum storage performance.”
Supermicro continues to expand their lineup and they now have over 100 NVMe based platforms in their X11 server and storage portfolio.
Supermicro Ultra Server
These new systems are far from Supermicro’s first step into the high-performance storage market, but they are a leap forward. When compared to the previous generation, the new all-flash 1U Ultra server support double the amount of directly attached hot-swap NVMe SSDs. Up from 10 to 20 hot-swap NVMe drives.
The new 2U Ultra server has additionally been performance optimized for the impressive 18 million IOPS of storage performance.
Supermicro X11 Ultra servers fully support the highest end Intel Xeon Scalable processors up to 205 watts. They also support 24 DIMMs, making these servers an excellent choice for high-performance analytics and in-memory application acceleration. The system architecture is balanced to make optimal use of system resources. Each processor supports 10 NVMe drives and dual 25G ports or a single 100G port.
Just a Bunch Of Flash (JBOF)
You have heard of JBOD, but what about JBOF. If you just need a lot of extra storage, then the new NVMe JBOF unit might be for you. Supermicro’s new 32 hot-swap NVMe SSDs in 1U JBOF (just a bunch of flash) device. It is for customers looking for even greater increases in the NVMe storage capacity per rack unit. Truly a maximum high-performance storage density.
