All-Flash 1U Server with 256TB of Hot-swap NVMe Optimized Intel “Ruler” Drives
In order to maximize data center storage density, Supermicro announced in early May of 2018 that it is introducing a new look all-flash NVMe™ (Non-Volatile Memory Express) 1U SuperServer and 1U JBOF (Just a Bunch Of Flash) to support 32 front loading hot-swap Intel® “Ruler” form factor NVMe SSDs.
The ruler form factor Intel SSD DC P4500, resembling a 12-inch ruler and hence its name, supports cloud storage and software-defined infrastructures as well as allows for scaling higher capacity per SSD and fitting more SSDs per server to deliver increased storage density (TB per rack unit).
Leveraging this new ruler form factor, Supermicro’s new 1U NVMe systems provide a more thermally optimized high-density, high-performance all-flash storage solution compared to previous all-flash storage technologies. The systems support front hot-swap accessibility to 32 ruler drives for up to 256TB of fast low-latency NVMe storage in 1U.
Supermicro’s NVMe 1U system supports not only the ruler form factor Intel SSDs, but also standard U.2 SSDs to offer customers greater storage flexibility.
Supermicro’s GPU Server Platforms Supporting the NVIDIA Tesla GPU Portfolio
At GTC18, Supermicro showcased the industry’s most extensive selection of GPU server platforms that support NVIDIA® Tesla® V100 PCI-E and V100 SXM2 GPUs.
For ultimate acceleration of highly parallel applications like artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, self-driving cars, smart cities, health care, big data, HPC, and virtual reality among others, Supermicro’s new 4U system with next-generation NVIDIA NVLink™ interconnect technology is optimized for peak performance. SuperServer 4029GP-TVRT supports eight NVIDIA Tesla V100 32GB SXM2 GPU accelerators with maximum GPU-to-GPU bandwidth for cluster and hyper-scale applications. Incorporating the latest NVIDIA NVLink technology with over five times the bandwidth of PCI-E 3.0, this system features independent GPU and CPU thermal zones to ensure uncompromised performance and stability under the most demanding workloads.
The 4U SuperServer 4029GR-TRT2 system can support up to 10 PCI-E NVIDIA Tesla V100 accelerators with Supermicro’s innovative and GPU-optimized single root complex PCI-E design, dramatically improving GPU peer-to-peer communication performance. Supermicro’s single-root GPU system allows multiple NVIDIA GPUs to communicate efficiently to minimize latency and maximize throughput as measured by the NCCL P2PBandwidthTest.
For even greater density, the SuperServer 1029GQ-TRT supports up to four NVIDIA Tesla V100 PCI-E GPU accelerators in only 1U of rack space and the new SuperServer 1029GQ-TVRT supports four NVIDIA Tesla V100 SXM2 32GB GPU accelerators in 1U.
