Supermicro Hyper-Speed Servers Accelerate Low-Latency Applications

The company says its new HFT-optimized server solutions provide up to a 30 percent gain in performance.

Super Micro Computer Inc., a provider of high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, debuts a new line of “ultra-high-performance hyper-speed” servers. Supermicro says the new 2U and 4U/tower platforms for HFT applications maximize processing power and precisely tune hardware and firmware to attain up to 30 percent lower latency over competitive solutions, while still maintaining high reliability as a primary design focus.

Built on Supermicro’s X9DAX series dual-processor (DP) motherboards and SC829BTQ chassis, hyper-speed systems allow the Intel Xeon E5-2600 series processors (up to 150W TDP) to be tuned for even higher performance and run at peak performance in a dense 2U form factor for colocation installations. Systems architecture is designed for maximum airflow and custom heatsinks provide thermal distribution for reliability. Additional performance tuning features include adjustable onboard frequencies, voltages, and memory latencies as well as firmware optimizations to further lower latency.

“Advanced trading firms looking to reduce latency and maximize transaction flow can gain an advantage with the extreme processing power and enterprise-class server optimizations designed into Supermicro’s Hyper-Speed systems,” says Wally Liaw, vice president of sales, international, at Supermicro. “Our latest HFT-optimized platforms boost performance of the fastest-rated x86 dual processors with board-level control and circuitry enhancements and custom tailored cooling systems for the highest sustained performance.”

Supermicro’s HFT-optimized hyper-speed platforms feature pre-installed CPUs and memory. Storage and I/O components are validated with a burn-in process to help ensure maximum performance and reliability on deployment. HFT-optimized hyper-speed systems are available in the following 2U rackmount server SKUs:
