Supermicro high-performance systems support exploration to distant galaxies

19 Jun 2019

Super Micro Computer (SMCI) announced major breakthroughs in a wide range of HPC applications including scientific research and space exploration.

“Empowering scientists, like those at NASA, with the latest in advanced computing and data analytics solutions is a key component of Supermicro’s mission to make the world a better place not only for us but also for future generations,” said Supermicro CEO Charles Liang.

“As a hardware solution company, we are investing heavily in our Resource-Saving server, GPU and storage solutions, including the development of 12-year lifecycle chassis, power supplies, fans and other subsystems, to help end-customers save both energy cost and hardware acquisition costs while reducing IT waste.”

“Also, continuing Supermicro’s technology innovation and time-to-market leadership, our Petascale 1U NVMe solutions are shipping in volume to provide customers with a significant competitive advantage.”

ISC 2019 participants can get a firsthand look at many of Supermicro’s broad selection of HPC systems at Messe Frankfurt Tor Ost (East Gate) in Hall 3, Booth #G731 through Wednesday, June 19th.

As a leader in NVMe all-flash server and storage systems, Supermicro’s Petascale line of all-flash NVMe 1U storage servers support next-generation flash technology with the highest storage bandwidth, best IOPS performance, NVMe over Fabrics support and ease of maintenance. 

With these 1U systems supporting up to 1PB of fast low-latency storage with 32 front hot-swap U.2, EDSFF and NF1 form factor SSDs, Supermicro supposedly offers flexibility and choice for high-capacity networked storage applications that require the best latency performance. 

These systems provide a real time-to-value advantage for data centres running data-intensive workloads.

Leveraging its system engineering expertise to design the most advanced server systems, Supermicro offers the industry a comprehensive portfolio of NVIDIA GPU systems.

This portfolio of systems optimised for NVIDIA GPUs continues to grow stronger as Supermicro produces innovative GPU servers to address the accelerating market demand for a wide range of AI solutions.

These GPU servers not only maximise system-level performance and efficiency but also offer the most flexible selection of features including the most advanced networking and storage options. For example, Supermicro’s NVIDIA HGX-2 based SuperServer, 9029GP-TNVRT, delivers up to 2 PetaFLOPS of performance in a single enclosure.

Supermicro’s unique Resource-Saving architecture supposedly disaggregates the CPU and memory from the other subsystems, so each resource can be refreshed independently allowing data centres to reduce refresh cycle costs and their impact to the environment by reducing e-waste.
