Supermicro Shows Off Its FatTwin Server Architecture

The new 4U platform from Super Micro Computer Inc. is designed for versatile configurations with multi-node models that support dual 135-Watt Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors and up to 8 hot-swap 3.5-inch HDDs in 1U.

Server technology innovator Super Micro Computer Inc. used the ISC 2012 forum in Hamburg, Germany to tout its FatTwin architecture.

Supermicro Shows Off Its FatTwin Server ArchitectureThe FatTwin server solution is a new 4U high-performance, high-capacity platform that offers versatile configurations for high-performance computing (HPC) with multi-node models that support dual 135W Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors, up to 8 hot-swap 3.5-inch HDDs in 1U, and up to 8 GPUs in 2U. The new architecture is also designed to operate in high ambient temperatures.

“Many factors affect the successful implementation of scalable supercomputing solutions, and obtaining maximum performance within budget and power constraints is the most challenging task,” says Supermicro president and CEO Charles Liang. “Supermicro’s new architectures such as FatTwin integrate the latest CPU, GPU, and storage technologies with advanced high-efficiency digital switching power supplies and free-air cooling designs for maximum performance and increased operational temperature ranges up to 47 degrees C that eliminate costly air conditioning.”

Supermicro’s FatTwin expands on the 1U and 2U Twin SuperServer lines and adds a new series of 4U systems that offers a standard 19-inch rack-ready solution. The FatTwin is now shipping in high-compute density 4U 8 and 4 node configurations, supporting dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors, up to 512 GB of 1600 MHz memory, and up to 12 hot-swap 2.5-inch SAS/SATA HDDs per U in the 8 node or up to 8 hot-swap 3.5-inch SAS/SATA HDDs per U in the 4 node configuration.

These systems also offer PCI-E 3.0 expandability and optional 56 Gbps ConnectX-3 FDR InfiniBand or 10 GbE connectivity.

The Twin architecture-based multi-node solutions feature shared power and cooling resources, designed to reduce component and cabling costs and resulting in optimized air-flow that maximizes energy utilization.
