Super Micro Computer announced the debut of its new Ultra Architecture SuperServer series, the 2U 2-Node UltraTwin.
The 2U SuperServer features two hot-swappable 1U nodes each supporting dual Intel Xeon E7-2880 v2 processors, up to 1TB in 32x DIMM slots, 2x 2.5" NMVe SSDs, 8x 12Gb/s SAS 3.0 2.5" HDD/SSDs, PCI-E 3.0 expansion in 2x full height, half length and 1x MicroLP cards and onboard support for 2x 10GBase-T ports.
The device supports redundant 1280W (1+1) Platinum Level High-Efficiency (95%) Digital Switching power supplies powering new proprietary serverboards designed to maximize compute/memory density and eliminate CPU pre-heat.
The system is suited for virtualization applications and high memory bandwidth in Data Centers, Cloud Computing and HPC clusters, thanks to its high core counts, memory capacity and accelerated storage technologies combined with wide I/O bandwidth.
"Supermicro's new 2U UltraTwin features two DP nodes each supporting up to 1TB in 32 DIMMs for data intensive in-memory applications and dual Intel Xeon E7-2880 v2 15 core processors for maximum performance per node," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "This new server is part of our innovative Ultra Architecture featuring high-density, performance and cooling optimized serverboards supporting Intel's highest core-count processors, massive memory footprints and the latest high-performance storage, expansion and network technologies."
