Supermicro Announces 4 Socket, Optane Server

Intel Optane SSD

SuperMicro Computer Inc., a provider of advanced server building block solutions for data center, cloud computing, and enterprise IT systems worldwide, announced that its four-socket servers now support both next-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane DC persistent memory. The combination of the two Intel technologies in a Supermicro server can deliver a huge performance boost while still keeping costs in check.

Supermicro's SuperServer 2049U-TR4 is powering the most demanding and intensive enterprise workloads for the top cloud vendors in the industry. This powerful 2U server is optimized to fully leverage the next-generation Intel Xeon Scalable as well as Intel Optane DC persistent memory. According to a recent study performed by Intel and SAP, the use of persistent memory can cut system downtime from minutes to seconds, and for SAP S/4 HANA the system restart time with Optane persistent memory is 12.5 times faster than DDR4.

According to the company, the stability and power of Supermicro's SYS-2049-TR4 makes it an ideal building block for enterprise customers who are looking to migrate from their current mainframe infrastructure.

Supermicro's Multi-Processor servers are designed for enterprise mission-critical workloads such as real-time OLTP + OLAP, in-memory analytics, virtualization and scale-up high performance computing (HPC). These servers are certified for a wide range of popular Operating Systems including RedHat, SUSE, Ubuntu, VMWare, and Windows.

Supermicro also announced its 4U SuperServer, the 8049U-E1CR4T. This 4U server is said to support 4 CPUs, 112 cores, 18TB of memory, 16 expansion slots, 8 NVMe SDDs, and up to six GPU cards. The best applications for this system include in-memory computing, real-time data analytics, AI inference and virtualization.

Supermicro’s four-socket servers are proven reliable machines that power mission-critical workloads for large enterprises and top cloud service providers around the world but, unfortunately, they are vulnerable to data loss caused by a number of internal and external factors. Under such circumstances, businesses will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to get their irreplaceable data back.

ACE Data Recovery has been providing high-quality data recovery services for more than 35 years and has extensive experience in recovering data from all types of storage media. ACE Data Recovery experts can successfully recover data from nearly any server or system. ACEs will be glad to help businesses that use the Supermicro servers with their data recovery needs.
