Supermicro extends vSAN system portfolio for hyper-converged infrastructure and launches new high-performance vSAN solution


26 Aug 2019 San Francisco - Super Micro Computer Inc., a global expert in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, extended its vSAN system portfolio and introduced a new enterprise-class vSAN solution - Ultra SuperServer - to its broad portfolio of fully configured, ready to deploy server systems. Supermicro solutions, coupled with industry-proven vSAN, provides turn-key solutions for the hyper-converged infrastructure marketplace.

"The Supermicro Ultra vSAN hyper-converged solution achieves double-digit (24%) infrastructure performance improvements over prior platforms for virtualized networks", stated Charles Liang, President, and CEO of Supermicro. "The Supermicro 2U/1U Ultra SuperServers are configurable with support of 20, 10, 4, or 2 hot-swappable NVMe drives and leverage 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane DC SSDs. The BigTwin, a high-density multi-node (2U-4 node) system, is optimized for mission-critical applications supporting up to 6TB memory per node and configured for hyper-converged infrastructure. Both systems are ideal for specific workloads offering operational simplicity, scalability, low total cost of ownership (TCO), and resource-savings for intelligent enterprise deployments."

The Ultra SuperServer and the BigTwin server turn-key systems, along with Supermicro's full line of vSAN ready nodes, accelerate the software-defined transition, optimize data centre infrastructure, and fast-track selecting and deploying data center hardware and software.

Supermicro 2U/1U Ultra SuperServers are highly configurable for different types of deployments. Ultra SuperServer platforms support a large number of NVMe drives and ample PCI-E lanes to accommodate network interface cards (NICs) that provide sufficient bandwidth for external access over fabrics.

The BigTwin with 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors features a flexible, resource-saving Supermicro I/O networking module (SIOM) and supports All-Flash NVMe. Configured with Intel Optane DC SSDs and NVMe as caching for high-performance SDS, this solution accelerates storage performance up to 3x. There is improved endurance, up to 30 drive writes per day (DWPD), to extend the lifecycle of deployments.
