Supermicro Reveals NVMe Servers Supporting New Intel SSD PCIe Family

June 3, 2014

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 3 — Super Micro Computer, Inc., a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing announces NVMe servers supporting the new Intel Solid-State Drive PCIe Family at Computex this week in Taipei, Taiwan. Supermicro has early qualification and optimization of Intel’s SSD PCIe family on its 1U WIO, 2U Data Center Optimized (DCO), 2U EX DP 32 DIMM, 2U TwinPro, 3U 11x PCI-E slot and 4U FatTwin SuperServers providing a range of NVMe solutions to meet the demands of the most data intensive applications for VDI, Very Large Database (VLDB) and Hyperscale Computing applications. These new solutions deliver up to 6x IOPS throughput improvement over existing SATA 6Gb/s SSDs. Many more application specific NVMe optimized platforms featuring the new Intel SSD DC P3700 Series, SSD DC P3600 Series and SSD DC P3500 Series are coming soon.

“Supermicro embraced NVMe technology at an early stage, positioning us with a strong suite of application optimized NVMe platforms that deliver extreme throughput with greater energy efficiency and reliability for performance critical markets,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “We are currently in the process of extending NVMe across an even wider range of solutions to drive economies of scale and offer this technology as a new standard feature. Our close collaboration with Intel to support the launch of their new SSD PCIe family delivers customers an extensive selection of highly optimized NVMe solutions that will radically accelerate business as well as overall ROI.”

“Intel is investing in this new generation of Solid-State storage technology to enable the next revolution in computing,” said Rob Crooke, Intel vice president and general manager of the Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group. “Pairing the new Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe with Intel Xeon processors eliminates critical constraints on data throughput, ensuring maximized utilization of resources. With partners such as Supermicro developing a wide range of platforms optimized for our most advanced technologies, we will make a considerable impact on research, engineering, business and arts.”

Is Liquid Cooling Ready to Go Mainstream?

February 13, 2017

Lost in the frenzy of SC16 was a substantial rise in the number of vendors showing server oriented liquid cooling technologies. Three decades ago liquid cooling was pretty much the exclusive realm of the Cray-2 and IBM mainframe class products. That’s changing. We are now seeing an emergence of x86 class server products with exotic plumbing technology ranging from Direct-to-Chip to servers and storage completely immersed in a dielectric fluid. Read more…

D-Wave SC16 Update: What’s Bo Ewald Saying These Days

November 18, 2016

Tucked in a back section of the SC16 exhibit hall, quantum computing pioneer D-Wave has been talking up its new 2000-qubit processor announced in September. Forget for a moment the criticism sometimes aimed at D-Wave. This small Canadian company has sold several machines including, for example, ones to Lockheed and NASA, and has worked with Google on mapping machine learning problems to quantum computing. In July Los Alamos National Laboratory took possession of a 1000-quibit D-Wave 2X system that LANL ordered a year ago around the time of SC15. Read more…

BioTeam’s Berman Charts 2017 HPC Trends in Life Sciences

January 4, 2017

Twenty years ago high performance computing was nearly absent from life sciences. Today it’s used throughout life sciences and biomedical research. Genomics and the data deluge from modern lab instruments are the main drivers, but so is the longer-term desire to perform predictive simulation in support of Precision Medicine (PM). There’s even a specialized life sciences supercomputer, ‘Anton’ from D.E. Shaw Research, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is standing up its second Anton 2 and actively soliciting project proposals. There’s a lot going on. Read more…
