Supermicro’s Edge Servers with Intel Xeon D now Available Worldwide


With the recently unveiled SuperEdge servers and a variety of Intel Xeon D processor-based server systems, which have up to 20 cores, built-in 25 GbE networking, and an operational temperature range of -40° C to 85° C, Supermicro is now announcing these servers’ global availability.

These technologies are designed for the ‘intelligent edge’, which calls for responsive systems with low latency. Furthermore, putting robust AI systems close to the source of data would decrease network traffic and speed up response time.

Updated versions of the IP65 Outdoor Edge server system and the Supermicro Hyper-E product lines are among the new systems that Supermicro is offering. All of these server systems have a variety of form factors and the optimal Intel Xeon CPU. All of these systems, which are accessible everywhere, are applications that have been optimized for computing and inferencing at the edge.

“We are pleased to be able to deliver our high-volume optimized edge systems worldwide due to our expanded factories and capacity,” said Charles Liang, president, and CEO of Supermicro. “Our latest server systems are designed for harsh conditions with the highest performing CPUs and GPUs that are available. Supermicro has the unique ability to quickly deliver industry-optimized solutions from the edge to the data center by using our Building Block Solution approach. We are also committed to lessening our servers’ carbon footprint, resulting in fewer emissions and a greener planet.”

“Our collaboration with Supermicro extends the reach of systems needed to meet demand in ruggedized environments,” said Jeni Panhorst, VP and GM of Network and Edge Compute Division at Intel.

The most recent Intel Xeon CPUs, including those from the Intel Xeon D series and the third generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, are used in Supermicro’s edge server systems. As a result, Supermicro servers equipped with these CPUs would perform better than previous generations of server systems. Additionally, these servers would be capable of accomplishing more work with the same amount of electricity.

“As data continues to be processed outside the traditional data center, customers are looking for solutions to address the most demanding use cases to create a better overall experience for key network and edge usages and workloads,” said Jeni Panhorst, Vice President and General Manager of Network and Edge Compute Division at Intel. “Our collaboration with Supermicro extends the reach of systems needed to meet demand in ruggedized environments and allows new solutions to be delivered to help increase innovation and decrease costs for many organizations.”

For edge contexts where physical space may be limited, the short depth and front I/O devices are crucial. These server systems could need to run continuously and in locations remote from climate-controlled data centers. With servers that can be deployed outside, such as the pole-mounted IP65 server platform for 5G and the intelligent edge, Supermicro continues to innovate. Faster judgments can be made by moving AI inferencing to the edge of the network instead of utilizing precious network bandwidth to communicate back to a remote data center.
