Super Micro Computer, Inc. introduced a full suite of all-in-one solutions optimized for the growing Embedded Appliance, Intelligent Datacenter and Network Edge markets. Supermicro’s compact systems and motherboards optimized with the new Intel Atom C3000 (Denverton) SoC feature lower thermal and power requirements and can improve performance by 2.5X compared to the previous generation.
Supermicro’s new A2 series motherboards feature 2 to 16 Atom cores, up to 128GB ECC memory, quad 10G SFP+ or RJ45 ports and up to 7 years long life. Supermicro A2SDi series motherboards are optimized for low-power servers, storage appliances, or web hosting applications and are integrated with Intel QuickAssist technology (QAT) for network security appliances. These new low power full-featured motherboards extend the foundation of Supermicro’s embedded Server Building Block Solutions and expand its growing line of products targeting transportation and communications infrastructure, retail applications, digital signage, industrial automation, digital security and surveillance, cloud and cold storage, medical imaging and network/security appliances.
“Our new Atom C3000 solutions can deliver 2.5X more performance to the Edge, which helps increase overall enterprise efficiency and drives improved competitiveness and productivity,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “As the embedded server market continues to evolve, Supermicro has become the solution provider of choice with enterprise-class engineering, manufacturing and support expertise in this area.”
Supermicro offers a COTS (commodity off the shelf) model with standard form factors, namely Flex and mini-ITX motherboards, to provide customers with flexible access to the industry’s most extensive selection of building blocks optimized for a wide range of applications including vCPE, NFV, SDN and SD-WAN. For system form factors, solutions range from 1U box and compact 1U rackmount to mini-tower and even a 3U MicroCloud system designed for entry-level dedicated hosting and memory caching applications.
In addition to the full suite of compact systems with lower thermal and power requirements, Supermicro customers can choose between AC or DC power supplies and fan-less options. Networking and storage expansion capabilities with mini-PCIE and M.2 sockets make it easy to scale application hosting and storage.
