Supermicro Unveiled New 2U Ultra SuperServer for 5G

Server Data Recovery Supermicro

Super Micro Computer, Inc. introduced new Supermicro 2U Ultra SuperServer for 5G and telecommunication environments. The new compact 2U systems are optimized for Edge Micro Data Centers where the bulk of the 5G action seems to be happening. The new SuperServer supports second generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, up to 205W TDP, and up to eight add-on cards.

As the telecom industry gradually adopts open standards such as O-RAN based solutions, operators are increasingly interested in using commercial off the shelf (COTS) servers for their infrastructure. But many of the existing IT server solutions are facing challenges such as bandwidth congestion, lack of scalability, processing delays and data security and integrity concerns including compliance and privacy issues. By delivering industry-standard servers optimized for 5G applications, Supermicro is transforming the telecommunications industry with powerful, feature-rich systems that provide intelligent and seamless connectivity from the Edge to the Cloud.

Their new short-depth 2U Ultra SuperServer comes with high reliability, availability and serviceability features. Supermicro's new 2U Ultra SuperServer supports two new 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with up to 205-watt TDP each and delivers high-performance compute, storage and networking for Edge micro data centers. This new 2U Edge server supports up to 6TB of DDR4 memory in 24 slots and features eight PCI-E 3.0 expansion slots for flexible networking configurations. Convenient front hot-swap drives and fan modules combined with a compact 22.6-inch depth and NEBS 3 certification make this server a valuable asset for organizations looking to modernize their data centers and Edge infrastructure.

Supermicro's new server comes with support for the Intel FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card N3000 (Intel FPGA PAC N3000), a highly customizable platform which enables high-throughput, lower latency, and high-bandwidth applications. This platform can help accelerate 5G and network functions virtualization (NFV) adoption for telecommunications equipment manufacturers (TEMs), virtual network functions (VNF) vendors, system integrators, and telcos, to bring scalable and high-performance solutions to market.

The new Supermicro 2U Ultra SuperServer will be a reliable solution for Edge Micro Data Centers that not only provides better features, faster performance, and greener power-efficiency, but also includes NEBS certification and redundant DC or AC power supplies. But like all storage media, such devices are vulnerable to logical and physical HDD failures that may result in lost data and mean downtime for businesses that will need to contact a reliable data recovery services provider. Ace Data Recovery team can successfully recover data from all types of storage devices and is ready to help owners of the new Supermicro 2U Ultra SuperServer with their data recovery needs.
