Global compute, storage and networking technology vendor, Supermicro, has announced the availability of new all-flash Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) 1U and 2U Ultra SuperServers. With support for 20 hot-swap NVMe SSDs, Supermicro’s new all-flash 2U Ultra server would deliver “a groundbreaking” 18 million IOPS of storage performance.
“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.”
With double the number of directly attached hot-swap NVMe SSDs compared to the previous generation, Supermicro’s new all-flash 1U Ultra server supports 20 hot-swap NVMe SSDs. In addition, the performance-optimized new all-flash 2U Ultra would unleash up to 18 million IOPS of storage performance.
Supermicro X11 Ultra servers fully support the highest end Intel Xeon Scalable processors up to 205 watts and 24 DIMMs. This would make these servers a good choice for high-performance analytics and in-memory application acceleration. The system architecture is balanced to make optimal use of system resources with each processor supporting 10 NVMe drives and dual 25G ports or a 100G port.
For customers looking for even greater increases in the NVMe storage capacity per rack unit, Supermicro’s new 32 hot-swap NVMe SSDs in 1U JBOF (just a bunch of flash) would provide maximum high-performance storage density.
Supermicro currently has over 100 NVMe based platforms available in its X11 server and storage portfolio. For more information on Supermicro’s all-flash NVMe server solutions, please visit https://www.supermicro.com/products/nfo/NVMe.cfm.
