Supermicro Expands High-Performance Single-Processor System Portfolio

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, is announcing an expanded portfolio of single-processor systems based on the new Intel Xeon E-2300 and 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors. These new systems support a wide range of applications in growing vertical markets. As a result, customers can optimise the exact configuration needed for their applications spanning entry-level servers for the intelligent edge to data centre-class systems. 
 
The MicroBlade and MicroCloud use Intel Xeon E-2300 processors to support applications that require a high-density computing infrastructure, such as content streaming, EDA, interactive gaming, and bare-metal cloud instances. Rackmount systems based on this new processor family can also benefit enterprises, with increased I/O and security features making these systems ideal for appliances and security applications.
 
New single-socket 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor-based systems such as the 6U SuperBlade® are ideal for high-density multi-node applications. The Supermicro SuperServer E403 wall-mount edge server for telco environments leverages the higher core counts, greater memory capacity, and faster I/O required to deliver high performance at optimised price points.
 
"Our multi-node solutions and high-volume rackmount systems enable a new class of computing for enterprises and cloud providers, allowing for a new generation of applications that optimise business performance and TCO," stated Charles Liang, president, and CEO of Supermicro. "We are delivering an expanded portfolio of single-processor application-optimised systems that will provide exactly the best performance and efficiency for targeted workloads, including telco, edge, storage, security, AI inferencing, and bare-metal provisioning."
 
Supermicro's new single-socket systems deliver the performance and capabilities to power an expanded set of workloads in the data centre and bring data centre-class performance to the edge. These new systems feature PCI-E 4.0 I/O, which removes bottlenecks and speeds up applications compared to systems with earlier generations of processors. They also now include support for Intel's SGX security features. The new single-socket systems are available in various form factors, including multi-node servers, rackmount servers, and workstations.
 
Single-socket 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor-based systems support up to 16 DIMM slots, allowing for up to 4TB of DRAM or 6TB of DRAM + Intel Optane Persistent Memory (Pmem) – this memory capacity for a single-socket system is unprecedented. With up to 8 cores and 128 GB of DDR4 memory at 95 Watts TDP, Intel Xeon E-2300 processor-based systems provide essential server performance for small businesses.
 
Servers from Supermicro that are optimised for single-socket applications incorporating 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors include:

  • SuperBlade – Highest-density multi-node systems
  • 5G/Edge – Configurable mobile networks and data centre-class computing at the Intelligent Edge
  • Mainstream – Versatile rackmount servers for enterprise applications
  • WIO – I/O optimised rackmount servers
  • Storage – Enterprise-optimised storage systems

In addition, the new Supermicro servers that use the Intel Xeon E-2300 include:

  • MicroBlade – Versatile and scalable multi-node solutions
  • MicroCloud – High-density systems for dedicated or scalable cloud hosting
  • WIO – Cost-effective I/O optimised rackmount servers
  • Mainstream – Entry-level enterprise rackmount servers
