“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.
