Supermicro Launches 4-Socket Server Bringing Outstanding Performance to a Broad Set of Enterprise-Class Workloads
"As Supermicro's first X12 generation system, this new 4-socket server is our most robust enterprise-class platform featuring the most powerful Intel Xeon Scalable Processors, Intel Optane Persistent Memory, and a new silicon based Root-of-Trust implementation for enhanced security," said
This new Supermicro 2U 4-socket server is the newest generation of a long line of proven, enterprise class, 4-socket Supermicro platforms which have powered some of the most demanding workloads such as SAP HANA, Oracle Enterprise Applications & Database, in-memory computing, and emerging AI use cases for some of the top enterprises & hyperscalers in the world. This platform features the latest Intel CPU and storage technologies: up to 112 Xeon cores in its 4 CPU sockets and up to 18TB of system memory, when provisioned in a mix of DDR and Intel Optane Persistent Memory. CPU interconnects have been doubled from 3 UPI lanes to 6 UPI lanes for vastly improved system latency and throughput. Finally, this latest Intel Xeon Scalable platform adds support for the bfloat16 numeric format into Intel Deep Learning Boost, which accelerates AI training and inference, while retaining similar accuracy to larger FP32 formats.
Other new features supported by this new server include:
- Up to 24 NVMe drives connected through direct PCI-E lanes symmetrically to the four CPUs for faster access to storage
- Supports 100Gb/s networking along with OCP3.0 compliant Advanced IO Module form-factor
- Enhanced security features such as new silicon-based Root-of-Trust (RoT) implementation, signed and encrypted firmware delivery for a true, immutable chain-of-trust
"Platforms based on the new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor, such as the Supermicro X12 SuperServer, are ready to take on the biggest AI, analytics and mission-critical application challenges," said
In addition to the latest Intel technologies, this new Supermicro quad-socket SuperServer supports up-to ten PCI-E expansion slots capable of fitting two double width, or six single-width GPU cards. Power and thermal subsystems are capable of zero-down time maintenance with hot-swappable, redundant 2000-watt high-efficiency power supplies and four hot-swappable, heavy duty fans.
