How to Choose the Right Ultra Server
The Supermicro Ultra SuperServer is extremely versatile and can be customized to fit your unique needs. It comes in both the 1U and 2U form factors and includes hyper performance designs like the Supermicro All-flash Ultra Server. The Ultra server can be optimized for data centers, applications, I/O as well as many different product segments.
Choosing the right server means that you need to closely examine components like form factor, memory, power management, processors, and drive technology. Ultra servers provide maximum performance with specs that include 6TB DDR4-2933MHz memory in 24 DIMMs, SATA3, SAS3, and NVMe support for increased storage bandwidth. They also provide a variety of Ultra Riser options, including built-in 1G, 10GBASE-T, 10G SFP+, and 25G Ethernet options.
Factors that will affect your decision include your data center or location requirements, latency needs, and scale. For example, a large-scale operation may need to adhere to strict power requirements to manage costs while balancing those needs with customer expectations regarding latency.
Servers Direct adds the critical elements that ensure you get the most from your Ultra Server investment, including collaborative design, quality customization, and uncompromising support.

The 1U server is the standard for the 19-inch server rack and is the most portable and arguably easiest to maintain of the form factors. Its versatile, small form factor packs a lot of power with capacity for 2 CPUs, 10 drives, and redundant power supplies.
The 2U server is 3.5 inches in height and is double the height of the 1U server, which gives you more space for computing power and storage capacity in one box. The 2U server has excellent performance density and is commonplace in data centers and enterprise applications.
