Super Micro Computer, Inc. has announced a selection of server solutions supporting the new generation of 10-Core Intel Xeon Processor E7-8800 / 4800 product families.
The servers include the SuperServer 5086B-TRF (5U) for 8-Way, and 8016B-6F/TF (1U), 8026B-6RF/TRF (2U), 8046B-6RF/TRF (4U) for 4-Way server systems.
“Supermicro’s 8-way SuperServer systems with new 10-core CPU support up to 2TB of ECC DDR3 memory, 10 PCI-E 2.0 expansion slots, up to 24 2.5-in. hard drives, and offer energy efficient designs,” says Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “These solutions deliver improved computing speed, I/O performance, expandability, security, and power efficiency over previous SuperServer generations. Our ability to deliver solutions for customers requiring large databases, heavy transaction processing, and complex technical computing formulations is significantly enhanced with these new systems.”
Supermicro’s new SuperServer 5086B-TRF system provides up to 2TB of registered ECC DDR3 memory in 64 DIMMs, 10 PCI-E Gen 2.0 expansion slots, (2+2) redundant Gold Level power supplies, and up to 24 2.5-in. hard drives in 5U. With the new 10-Core Intel Xeon processor E7 family-based platform, this system offers 80 CPU cores in 5U. The SuperServer 5086B-TRF offers SAS and hardware RAID through many HBA card options. Users can integrate up to four GPUs to take advantage of the large memory footprint. These new platforms also provide onboard IPMI 2.0 with remote media and KVM-over-LAN support for optimal management.
The SuperServer 8016B-6F/TF (1U), 8026B-6RF/TRF (2U), and 8046B-6RF/TRF (4U) all support up to 1TB of registered ECC DDR3 memory via 32 DIMM slots. The full range of Intel Xeon Processor E7 family-based platform SKUs are supported, from performance 130-watt SKUs to high-density rack-optimized 95-watt SKUs.
