Why Atlantis HyperScale is Better

Traditional Storage + Compute

With traditional storage and compute, enterprises buy either SAN or NAS storage arrays and servers separately. This approach is both complex and costly as the IT organization is responsible for integrating, managing and maintaining disparate systems to deliver IT services. Atlantis HyperScale integrates servers, storage and virtualization into a single appliance that delivers orders of magnitude better storage performance at 50-90% lower cost.

Converged Systems

With converged systems, enterprises buy SAN or NAS storage arrays and servers that are integrated by a third-party and delivered to the customer in a single rack. Converged systems are simply packaged storage, networking and compute components that add little value over traditional systems. While this approach simplifies integration of the components, it is complex to maintain, provides limited performance with diskbased storage and is costly. Atlantis HyperScale integrates servers, storage and virtualization into a single appliance that delivers orders of magnitude better storage performance at 50–90% lower cost.

Hyper-Converged Systems

With hyper-converged appliances, local storage, servers and virtualzation are integrated into a single system, simplifying deployment and management. However, hybrid hyper-converged appliances remain costly and deliver poor storage performance compared to all-flash storage systems. Atlantis HyperScale is the first economically viable all-flash hyper-converged system that integrates servers, storage and virtualization into a single appliance that delivers order of magnitude better storage performance at 50–90% lower cost. Unlike other hyper-converged appliances, Atlantis HyperScale avoids vendor lock-in by supporting multiple hypervisors, eliminating dependence on proprietary hardware, and supporting four of the leading server platforms (Cisco, HP, Lenovo, SuperMicro).

Super Micro Computer a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing, is shipping the new extreme-density server platform in high volume, targeting hyper-scale data center, cloud, web hosting environments and video streaming, VDI, high performance video/graphics applications. MicroBlade is a revolutionary, converged architecture that helps data centers around the world save money, space, and time. Unlike other architecture that requires costly investment in proprietary rack and facility infrastructure, Supermicro MicroBlade is a truly open and flexible architecture that fits in the industry standard 19″ rack form factor at the best possible costs. It is a 6U, standard 19” rack-based, converged computing platform that combines the density, ease of use, manageability, high availability, serviceability, efficiency of blade servers with the cost advantage of rack-mount servers. Supermicro has increased node density and maximized energy efficiency and cooling by enabling VLP DDR4 16/32GB RDIMM. Enabling this technology with Industry leading memory vendors, Supermicro is able to offer this technology at regular DIMM cost.

Supermicro 6U MicroBlade

The modular MicroBlade architecture, supporting Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3, E3-1200 v3, Xeon® D-1500, and Atom™ C2000 series processors, maximizes rack space with full-featured power-conserving servers in easily serviceable front access hot-swap blade modules. Compute and storage are integrated in these 28 blades and shared networking, power and cooling are located at the rear of the system. The 6U MicroBlade enclosure incorporates redundant Titanium-Level high-efficiency (96%+) Digital Switching power supplies, optimized airflow with redundant energy-efficient cooling fans, redundant chassis management modules (CMM), and redundant  high-speed, low-latency SDN switches. The 1Gb/2.5Gb Ethernet switches (MBM-GEM-001/003s/003i) and 10Gb Ethernet switch (MBM-XEM-001), based on Intel Ethernet switch FM5224 and FM6348, respectively, support enhanced features critical for today’s high performance switching environments: low latency, scalability, Priority Flow Control, and DCBX. These integrated switches simplify cable management and reduce cables up to 95% for Xeon processor-based solutions.

“Supermicro MicroBlade solutions deliver extreme high density, energy efficiency, optimized cooling and cost effectiveness by enabling VLP DDR4 16/32GB RDIMM without a price premium over existing memory technologies,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “Our advanced power saving, modular architecture leads the industry by dramatically increasing compute density to maximize performance per watt, per dollar, per square foot all while offering the best quality and ease of serviceability. With up to 112 full featured energy efficient compute nodes per 6U, MicroBlade delivers the most cost-effective, earth friendly server solution available for rapidly expanding data centers and cloud computing environments.”

Supermicro® New 1U/2U Ultra SuperServers

“Supermicro’s Ultra Series SuperServers offer the most flexible, high bandwidth I/O solutions on the market and incorporate the most advanced computing and networking technologies into a single architecture,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “The Ultra SuperServer advantage enables customers to address a wide range of applications across Enterprise, virtualized and hyper-scale environments with rapid deployment of exactly the best balance of configurability, efficiency, performance and reliability.”

Supermicro Ultra Series SuperServers offer flexible, high-speed networking with options of 1G, 10G base-T/SFP+, up to 2x 40GbE, 4x 1GbE, or 2x 10GbE networking available standard.

The new Supermicro Ultra servers feature improved energy efficiency with redundant 1000W Titanium-level digital power supplies and a new airflow optimized cooling architecture. Supermicro’s new Ultra servers currently include support for dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 CPUs up to 36 cores. In the future, 1.6KW and 2KW digital power supplies will provide support for Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors and NVIDIA Tesla GPUs for high-level compute workloads. Supermicro Ultra servers support upwards of 1.5TB of DDR4-2133MHz RAM in 24 DIMMs.

NVMe support allows the Supermicro Ultra server line to take advantage of the superior performance of SSDs. A direct PCI-E to processor connection delivers 6x the performance over SATA with reduced overhead and 70 percent better latency. The Supermicro Ultra hot-swap NVMe feature enables administrators to replace NVME drives without system interruption.

Supermicro Ultra Series 1U servers support up to ten hot-swappable 2.5-inch, or up to four hot-swappable 3.5-inch HDDs. The 2U configuration can support up to 24 hot-swap 2.5-inch and up to 12 hot-swap 3.5-inch HDDs.

Supermicro will feature its Ultra server optimized for virtualized environments at the VMware Partner Exchange 2015 in San Francisco, February 24-26.
