How to Choose The Right Supermicro Twin Server
The Supermicro Twin server solution’s modular design provides excellent customization while its multiple node design provides performance density that can’t be beat. Whether you’re looking for the slim 1U Twin form factor or the robust 4U FatTwin™ design, every server comes with hot-swappable technology and is built for redundancy.
Supermicro Twin servers are optimized for applications in Hyperscale, hyper-converged infrastructure, HPC, data centers, enterprise, big data, and more. Each server provides different upper limits on CPUs, nodes, power supply technology, and drive types.
For example, the BigTwin™ server supports all NVMe storage systems as well as a number of hybrid options, while the Twin only supports up to SAS2 and SATA3 storage options. Additionally, the FatTwin™ server has electronically isolated nodes and power supplies unique to the model.
Whether you have a need for extremely low latency or are looking for reliable high-density systems, the Supermicro Twin servers can support your needs. Our team can help you find the right system for your application. And if it doesn’t exist, we can help you build it. Talk to one of our experts today.
The Twin comes in both the 1U and 2U server form factors, which both support hot-swappable storage. In the 1U server model, two nodes share a power supply, and each of these nodes supports two CPUs. The 2U Twin server increases capacity by providing more space for drives, memory, and redundant power supplies.
The TwinPro™ server also comes in the 1U and 2U form factors and supports hot-swappable storage. The TwinPro™ stands out from its Twin counterpart with improved storage options like NVMe, SAS3, and hybrid storage options, as well as SIOM networking options.
The BigTwin™ server is Supermicro’s most powerful 2U Twin architecture. It allows for flexible storage options, including the coveted all-NVMe setup or hybrid storage options allowing for extremely low latency. Additionally, the Supermicro BigTwin™ PowerStick design leverages a power supply with integrated system cooling fans for extremely dense infrastructure.
The FatTwin™ server offers unparalleled flexibility and customization. With a 4U build that supports up to 8 hot-pluggable nodes, 16 DIMM slots, and 48 2.5-inch drives, the sky’s the limit. The FatTwin™ server is one of Supermicro’s most cost-effective servers for extreme I/O efficiency and build flexibility.
