SAN JOSE, CA: Super Micro Computer, an advanced server building block solutions provider, announces the unveiling of its Supermicro Rack Scale Design (Supermicro RSD). It is a pre-packaged and pre-validated rack solution which uses existing Supermicro hardware and open standards-based application programming interface (API)-driven Redfish management.
Supermicro RSD is considered to be the superset of the Intel Rack Scale Design (RSD), which enables active management of compute, memory, PCI-e expansion and storage resources for more proficient and higher utilization of data centre assets. Charles Wuischpard, Vice President, Data Center Group, general manager Scalable Datacenter Solutions Group at Intel says the adoption of RSD in a wide range of their product lines offers a variety of solutions to meet the diverse needs of end users. This brings industry standards-based, hyper scale-inspired capabilities such as resource discovery, compose-ability and telemetry to the broad market, enabling improved customer TCO (Total cost of ownership) and flexibility through dynamic deployment and manageability of datacenter infrastructure.
The compute, storage, network, and software building blocks are optimized for the most rigorous data centre requirements with the highest density, scalability, and power-and-cost efficiency. Company's Ultra NVMe, TwinPro, FatTwin, and SuperStorage servers along with Supermicro 1G and 10G Ethernet switches and SuperRack technologies are some of the Supermicro RSDs implemented by some leading product lines.
The Supermicro Rack Management Module (SRMM) simplifies the management of hardware assets in a rack depending on Redfish APIs and work according to Supermicro's POD Manager for a rapid deployment. It requires less manpower for datacenter management and provides a foundation to build the future infrastructure for both datacenter and cloud environments.
"Supermicro RSD is architected to dramatically improve CPU and storage utilization rates, agility and efficiency in the datacenter," says Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "When combined with our leadership position in the newest technologies such as U.2 NVMe, and in upcoming fabric technologies like Red Rock Canyon and PCI-E switches, Supermicro RSD will provide data centres with unparalleled competitive advantages, especially when implemented with the new Ruler form factor high capacity flash storage."
