Super Micro Computer, Inc. makes available a complete server lineup supporting the AMD EPYC 7003 Series Processors. Supermicro’s SuperBlade on the SPECjbb 2015-Distributed achieved world record benchmarks on the critical-jOPS and max-jOPS tests, according to the company. The SuperBlade delivered up to a 36% improvement from the 2nd Gen to 3rd Gen of AMD EPYC CPUs, the company adds.
The Supermicro A+ line includes servers that incorporate single- and dual-socket system solutions. For example, the recently announced new 2U 2-node multi-GPU server is a platform built for video streaming, high-end cloud gaming and more.
“Supermicro has always led the industry in designing and manufacturing the largest application-optimized portfolio of servers that meet the demands of our customers,” says Charles Liang, president and CEO, Supermicro. “Our building block architecture allows us to deliver a versatile portfolio of systems that maximize the benefits of the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC Processors for specific workloads be it our 2U 2 Node GPU System with PCIe 4.0 for cloud gaming our 2U CloudDC single processor high core count system for storage applications.
“These systems reduce TCO and the Total Cost to the Environment (TCE), which is an essential metric as we all have the responsibility to minimize a data centers effect on the environment,” Liang adds.
The new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC 7003 Series Processors are designed with the “Zen3” core that delivers up to 19% more instructions per cycle than the previous generation and contains up to 64 cores per socket for performance on benchmarks and real-world workloads. The new systems from Supermicro include a range of compute and storage systems designed for many of the most demanding applications, for AI, HPC, Enterprise and Cloud deployments.
“We designed the EPYC 7003 Series processors to give our customers exactly what they said they needed, performance across all workloads and the ability to drive more time to value, right out of the box,” says Ram Peddibhotla, corporate vice president, EPYC product management, AMD.
The new A+ product lineup with AMD EPYC Series 7003 Processors helps enterprises reduce time to solution for a wide range of applications, add enhanced security features and allow all workloads to be run in the cloud, on-prem or a private cloud. Supermicro has certified many solutions and reference architectures that enable organizations to gain insight from their data faster. These solutions include: AI/ML/DL training inference workload-optimized, certified servers, HCI/SDI, or software-defined storage such as VMWare vSAN, RedHat CEPH and Weka.IO.
