Supermicro's new H12 A+ servers with the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors are expected to deliver up to two times the performance with double the core count compared to 1st Gen AMD EPYC processor-based systems. With these new A+ Servers, customers can also expect improved GPU accelerator performance as well as up to four times the peak FLOPS per socket.
Supermicro delivered world-record performance benchmarks on its new H12 A+ Servers for both TPCx-IoT, and TPC-DS categories. For TPCx-IoT, performance of 472200.88 IoTps was established on Supermicro's H12 TwinPro 2U 4-node server where faster IoT gateway data analytics are critical for the coming explosion of IoT device numbers. This is especially with the massive bandwidth increase enabled by 5G networks. A new world record for TPC-DS was achieved using a Supermicro H12 A+ BigTwin system. This server delivers the highest performance and lowest performance per dollar for a 10TB database with 64% higher QphDS throughput (Composite Query per Hour Metric) and $0.05 savings per QphDS over the previous world record holders.
"Supermicro's industry-leading H12 A+ servers leveraging AMD's EPYC 7002 series processors provide an ideal combination of features for modern data centres including robust virtualization performance, up to 64 high-performance cores per socket, a maximum of 128 threads per socket, and onboard disk controllers to mitigate memory access bottlenecks", stated Ismail Sayeeduddin, Corporate Vice President, Sales and Business Operations. "Supermicro's H12 A+ servers are available in multiple optimized configurations and storage densities to address customer requirements."
"We're excited and thankful to have our partners supporting the launch of AMD EPYC 7002 series processors", stated Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Datacenter Solutions Group, AMD. "Their EPYC based solutions are poised to deliver a new standard for modern data centre customers. With twice the cores, breakthrough performance and embedded security features, all delivered by a leadership architecture, customers can transform their datacenter operations at the pace of their business."
Furthermore, these new Supermicro A+ Servers offer increased data centre agility and responsiveness with a comprehensive and balanced feature set of I/O, memory, and security capabilities. As the first generation of systems with PCI-E 4.0 support, these A+ Servers feature a large memory footprint of up to four terabytes (4TB) per socket running fast DDR4 memory up to 3200MHz.
Supermicro offers an industry-leading portfolio of AMD EPYC based systems and Server Building Block Solutions. From single-socket mainstream and WIO servers to high-end Ultra server systems and multi-node systems, including BigTwin and TwinPro, Supermicro enables customers to build application-optimized solutions with a multitude of configuration possibilities.
These new 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors are also socket compatible with Supermicro H11 generation systems (drop-in support for board rev 2.x). This provides new and existing customers on the H11 gen systems a fast upgrade track when PCI-E® 4.0 support is not a necessity. Existing Supermicro H11 solutions are still uniquely competitive in the market as they can support up to DDR4-3200MHz memory.
