Supermicro Upgrades Its A+ Line with AMD Opteron 6300 Series Processors

With intelligent thermal/power monitoring and management, the performance per watt of the new A+ platforms is up to 40 percent higher than predecessor models.

Server technology innovator Super Micro Computer Inc. has upgraded its line of servers with AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors. According to Supermicro, the new A+ server and tower platforms deliver “up to 24 percent higher performance” over prior models and maximize processor density and core counts to support more VMs for public and private cloud deployments.

The performance per watt of the new A+ platforms is up to 40 percent higher with intelligent thermal/power monitoring and management, according to Supermicro, “enabling datacenters running robust large-scale software systems to maximize performance while lowering overall TCO.”

“With dual-processor and multi-processor architectures, Supermicro ups the performance bar for data center and high-performance computing cluster applications,” states Supermicro in a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB.

“Supermicro and AMD have a great history of delivering the best price/performance ratio for high performance server solutions,” says Don Clegg, Supermicro’s vice president of marketing and business development. “With the addition of AMD’s new Opteron 6300 Series processors across our A+ platforms, we help customers maximize IT budgets by enabling higher levels of virtualization with the most cost effective, scalable computing platforms.”

For AMD, the partnership promises to address an expanding big data market. “We are excited to bring our new AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors to market at a time when cloud computing and big data markets are rapidly expanding,” says John Williams, AMD’s vice president of server marketing and business development. ” The Supermicro platform portfolio coupled with the performance, scalability, and cost-effectiveness of AMD’s latest offerings enable us to jointly deliver powerful computing solutions to meet the increasing demands of our fast paced data driven society.

The A+ Lineup

Supermicro’s lineup of A+ servers supporting the Opteron 6300 series processors include 1U DP (AS-1022G-URF) solutions (supporting the company’s UIO architecture for flexible I/O expansion options) and multiple expansion card options, including SAS/SATA RAID5, 10Gb Ethernet and InfiniBand for the most demanding HPC applications.

High density form-factors in 1U MP (AS-1042G-TF) and 2U MP (AS2042G-6RF) support quad processors with up to 64 cores and 1TB of DDR3 memory and high-speed InfiniBand QDR interconnects for high-performance database and SQL server applications. The 4-node, 2UTwin2 (AS-2022TG-HLIBQRF) supports dual 16-core AMD Opteron processors and 1866 DDR3 memory per node with onboard Mellanox InfiniBand and 1620W redundant Platinum Level high-efficiency power supplies.

A 4U/Tower solution (AS-4022G-6F) in DP and (AS-4042G-6RF) in MP offers maximum storage capacities with support for up to 8x hot-swap SAS/SATA HDD bays. In addition, SuperBlade is designed to maximize Opteron 6300 series processor density with up to 20 DP nodes (SBA-7222G-T2) or 10 MP nodes (SBA-7142G-T4) in 7U enclosure, supporting up to 3,840 cores in a 42U rack with high speed, low latency interconnect using FDR InfiniBand switches.
