Super Servers Hit The Streets

Super Micro Computer announces that its 4-socket servers, which support 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel Optane DC persistent memory, are now shipping in volume. The SuperServer 2049U-TR4 is powering the most demanding and intensive enterprise workloads for the top cloud vendors in the industry. This system is optimized to fully leverage the 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors as well as paradigm-changing Intel Optane DC persistent memory, and this 2U server provides up to 112 processor cores at a very compelling price point.  In a recent study by Intel and SAP, Intel's persistent memory enabled SAP S/4 HANA to restart up to 12.5 times faster than DDR4 and SSDs alone. 

In addition to powering the cloud, the stability and scalability of Supermicro's SYS-2049-TR4 makes it a viable building block for enterprise customers who are looking to migrate from their current mainframe infrastructure.  In a recent internal test conducted by Neeve Research, Supermicro Multi-Processor (MP) servers were able to demonstrate better performance against typical mainframe workloads.   

The company’s multi-processor servers are designed for enterprise mission-critical workloads such as real-time OLTP + OLAP, in-memory analytics, virtualization and scale-up high-performance computing (HPC).  These servers are certified for a wide range of popular operating systems including RedHat, SUSE, Ubuntu, VMWare, and Windows. 

Supermicro is sampling a 4U server with four 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors for up to 112 compute cores and up to 18 terabytes of memory.  The SuperServer 8049U-E1CR4T supports 16 expansion slots, eight NVMe SSDs and up to six GPU cards. The best applications for this system include in-memory computing, real-time data analytics, AI inference, and virtualization. For more information, visit on Supermicro.
