New Powerful Server Graphics Will Enable Supermicro MicroBlades to Become Workstations in the Cloud.

In the video above, Raphael Wong of Supermicro explains how MicroBlade architecture and rackmount server and storage solutions deliver both performance and value.

At Computex in Taiwan, Supermicro announced some awesome new technology.

Implementing the new Intel® Xeon® processors, Supermicro continues to make strides with the latest MicroBlade servers. By combining the latest Intel processors with high density server platforms, the following family of servers deliver optimized performance for scale-out workloads such as hosting, web front-end and social media/content delivery.

Supermicro’s new MicroBlade servers (MBI-6118D-T2H, MBI-6118D-T4H) feature the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v4 product family with Intel® Iris™ Pro graphics P6300. These new systems are optimized for running graphic-rich applications from any remote device as well as applications in Virtual Hosted Desktops, Cloud Gaming, Workstation in the Cloud, Video Search Indexing and Automated Ad Insertion. An upcoming 3U MicroBlade system will also feature 25/10/1GbE SDN switches for high performance data center and cloud applications.

The 1U mainstream SuperServer® (SYS-6018R-MTR) supports dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processors, up to 512GB ECC DDR4, up to 2133MHz; 8x DIMMs, 1x PCI-E 3.0 x8 FHHL Expansion slot, dual port Gigabit Ethernet, IPMI 2.0 + KVM with Dedicated LAN, 4x 3.5" Hot-swap SATA3 HDD Bays, 2x SuperDOM, 1x VGA, 1x COM, 2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 and 400W Redundant Power Supplies.

The 6U MicroBlade, the latest addition, is a powerful, flexible and extreme-density, all-in-one system that features 112/56/28 hot-swappable MicroBlade server nodes in a 6U form factor. The MicroBlade supports DP/UP Intel® Xeon® or Atom™ processors, up to 4 HDDs/SSDs and a SATADOM per server. The versatility of its enclosure means it can incorporate up to 2 Chassis Management Modules and up to 4/2 Switches for efficient, high-bandwidth communications. It can also incorporate up to 8 redundant (N+1 or N+N) 2000W/1600W Titanium/Platinum Level high-efficiency (96%/95%) power supplies with cooling fans. This innovative new generation architecture includes servers, networking, storage, and unified remote management for cloud computing, dedicated hosting, web front end, content delivery, social networking, enterprises, and high performance computing applications.

Supermicro’s MBI-6128R-T2/-T2X is a performance-oriented solution with highest density up to 196 Intel® Xeon® DP nodes (5488) cores) per 42U rack with 95% cable reduction – supports dual Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v3 (up to 14 cores) up to 28x DP servers with 1GbE and 10GbE options. It is perfect for enterprise as well as cloud computing applications.

The MBI-6218G-T41X, MBI-6118G-T41X is a high density, low power solution featuring 56 Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 (Broadwell-DE) based servers in 6U (up to 392 computing nodes per 42U rack) with 10GbE. It is a cost effective solution for scale-out cloud workloads with 10GbE.

The NEW MBI-6118D-T2H/-T4H MicroBlade server supports an Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v4 and features Power Efficiency with 14nm technology, improved performance, coherency and balance of CPU and GPU Graphics via package interconnect shared L3 Cache and 128MB Graphic embedded cache. A simpler CPU subset and Intel® Iris™ Pro graphics P6300 in an interconnect package enable key technologies for the best server performance per watt per flop with an emphasis on graphics.

Featuring ultra-low power and cost-effective solution using 8-Core Intel® Atom™ Processor C2000, the MBI-6418A-T7H/-T5H has up to 112 nodes in 6U (up to 784 computing nodes per 42U rack) enclosure. It is a perfect solution for such cloud applications as dedicated hosting, web serving, memory caching, content delivery, etc.
