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.”
