Supermicro UK – Ready To Go – ‘The Cloud Server’

Sentral IT is pleased to announce the launch of the Supermicro ‘Ready To Go’ Range of servers and workstations.

– Available Next Business Day

– Come with 3 years NBD Parts/Engineer onsite warranty as standard

– Have Clear Power Usage Figures

Please see below for an introduction to the first of the five new systems –

• Includes 4 x 3.5” Hot-Swap Hard Drive SATA/SAS Bays for customizable storage.

• The RX-1240i supports significantly more memory Up to 512GB, in 16 DIMMS compared to earlier generations.

• The Wide IO technology enables the end customer to add up to 2x PCI-E 3.0 x16 Full-height, Half length add on cards in the 1U form factor.

• 700w 1+1 Redundant Gold Level High-Efficiency Power Supply designed to run at significantly higher efficiencies of up to 92%+, thus greatly reducing energy losses and the total cost of ownership (TCO).

• Optimized system architecture designed to take advantage of Supermicro’s power saving technology to produce optimal cooling at all application levels.


With the current push towards cloud computing there are a lot of design considerations and choices one has to make when implementing the platform of which hardware makes up a significant portion of the solution. The RX-1240i is a solid choice providing local expandable storage, excellent memory capabilities and greener power supplies. This means you will run a cost-efficient platform from the beginning. Whilst cloud environments don’t require a high level of fault tolerance, since your cloud software should provide self healing capabilities, we do provide the RX-1240i with redundant power units. We think this is a sensible option to
help maximise your data-center personnel time which saves cost in the long term.

Running on the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 the RX-1240i yields a performance boost of up to 80%* over previous generation platforms.

Powered by Supermicro, the Ready To Go server range are complete systems that incorporate the latest advancements in technology to meet the demands of today’s data-driven world.

Just add software.

Did You Know..?

Worldwide usage of Supermicro high-efficiency solutions could save up to $5.7 billion per year in electricity cost, or the equivalent of 9 billion trees compared to the servers in use in today’s data centres.
