Unique New Multi-Node System Provides Cost Optimized Performance at Scale for eCommerce, Software Development, Cloud Gaming, Content Creation, and Private Server Instances
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Supermicro, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a Total IT Solution Provider for Cloud, AI/ML, Storage, and 5G/Edge, is introducing a new server that gives IT and data center owners a high performance and scalable solution to meet the needs for E-commerce, cloud gaming, code development, content creation, and virtual private servers. The new systems are designed to use AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors optimized for server usage, based on the latest “Zen 4” core architecture, which has a max boost speed of up to 5.7 GHzi, including PCIe 5.0 support, DDR5-5200 MHz, and up to 16 cores…
Many of our readers are already familiar with the Supermicro MicroCloud. The MicroCloud is popular in web and dedicated hosting markets where sharing the chassis, power, and cooling are desired while still maintaining physical nodes. At Computex 2023, the STH team saw the new AMD AM5 version of the MicroCloud designed to fit 8x AMD Ryzen nodes into a single chassis.
The system itself is the upcoming Supermicro AS-3015MR-H8TNR. This is a 3U chassis (CSE-938NH-R2K20BP2) with sixteen 3.5″ front bays.
Each node gets two of these 3.5″ bays.
AMD Ryzen-based web hosting services are now commonplace, so it is perhaps not too surprising therefore that given ECC support and high core count, another manufacturer has decided to go all in and launched entry-level Ryzen servers.
Of the quartet, the R133-C11 is the one which is most appealing because it can handle up to eight SATA drives (a mix of 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch ones) and has four LAN ports (two 10GbE and two 1GbE). It can accommodate Ryzen “Zen 4” CPUs with a TDP of up to 170W which includes the top of the range AMD Ryzen 9 7950X with its 16-cores, 32-threads and integrated graphics.
