SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Supermicro, a leading server-storage provider, launches the latest Supermicro Rack Scale Design (RSD) with the latest advancement in technologies such as CPUs, GPUs, NVMe, M.2 and the new factor flash storage to enhance the product for cloud, storage and IoT customers.

 Supermicro RSD includes all-flash high-availability-in-a-box Super Storage 2U 40-Bay dual-port NVMe system with dual node "Simply Double" based storage exhibiting up to 5Tb/s throughput and over 1.28PB storage capacity in a 42U rack; highest density and efficiency 3U and 6U Micro Blade; and a 7U 8-Way Super Server with 24TB memory capacity supporting the new Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800 v4/v3 product families and up to 16 U.2 NVMe drives. Supermicro is also exhibiting a 48 NVMe "Simply Double" Super Storage server and a 4U/tower development workstation supporting the new Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors (formerly code named Knights Landing) with integrated or external Intel® Omni-Path fabric option.

The Supermicro RSD is architected to enhance the storage rates, agility and efficiency in the datacenter.

Features of Supermicro RSD

The Supermicro RSD enhances the efficiency and utility of data centres enabling dynamic management of memory, computer and PCIe expansion. It also exhibits a 7U 8-way (MP) Super Server which features up to 192 cores and 192 DDR4 memory DIMM slots. The 3U/6U Micro Blades are used to improve the architect with high density, low-power consumption.

The Supermicro RSD also compromises of a 2U 40 Dual-port NVMe All-Flash SuperStorage Solutions and SuperWorkstation supporting Intel Xeon Phi processor. The 2U 40 dual-port, dual-controller, all-NVMe system supports up to 30GB/s per system throughput via Intel 100G Omni-Path networking. It increases the throughput and latency speeds. The 2U Simply Double SuperStorage increases the storage capacity and IOPS at the same amount of space compared to the traditional 2U load storage systems.

"Supermicro adoption of Intel Rack Scale Design across a wide range of their product lines offers a variety of solutions to meet the diverse needs of end users," says Charles Wuischpard, vice president, Data Center Group, general manager Scalable Datacenter Solutions Group at Intel.
