Supermicro Expands Oracle Relationship with Best in Class Server Solutions

January 17, 2020

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 17, 2020 — Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), has expanded its relationship by testing and certifying an extensive range of servers with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM Server for x86 (Oracle VM), addressing customer requirements for cloud and virtualization and enterprise database applications. Supermicro has immediate availability of multiple servers, including 1U/2U Ultra, BigTwin, 2U TwinPro, FatTwin, and 4-way and 8-way MP servers. They are available in various configurations, including 1U, 2U blades, and are qualified to run Oracle Linux 7.6, Oracle Linux 7.7, and Oracle VM 3.4.

“The work we performed with the Oracle software stack helps ensure that Oracle and Supermicro customers can extract the best performance and best TCO value from our pre-tested and validated servers across all their Oracle workloads,” says Raju Penumatcha, senior vice president and chief product officer, Supermicro. “We look forward to furthering collaboration with Oracle, as we expect to roll out additional, leading-edge servers and solutions designed and optimized for Oracle in the coming months.”

These certified systems take advantage of Supermicro’s superior system designs and high-performance 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Also, by leveraging Intel Optane DC persistent memory users can support larger datasets and higher availability with database restarts. The systems enable users to derive outstanding performance and value from their Oracle database and applications with up to 28 cores and 2933MHz memory speed. New and existing customers are taking full advantage of Supermicro’s enterprise-class servers, leveraging their resource-saving architecture to power their mission-critical Oracle software-based solutions for the most demanding cloud and hybrid Oracle workloads.

“Supermicro’s launch of certified solutions with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM across their server lines highlights the value and demand that mutual customers are experiencing from the combined solutions,” said Robert Shimp, product management group vice president, Oracle Linux and Virtualization at Oracle. “Oracle and Supermicro’s collaboration focuses on helping customers to achieve great performance for their data center, cloud, and enterprise deployments.”

Certification testing on Supermicro hardware was completed using Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel and Oracle VM. All certified servers have completed rigorous testing guidelines as part of Oracle’s Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) program for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM.
