Supermicro Servers Featuring Intel E5-2600 v4 Xeon® Processors

Built on 14 nm process technology, the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 family offers up to 22 cores/44 threads per socket and 55 MB last-level cache (LLC) per socket for increased performance, as well as Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions (Intel® TSX) for increased parallel workload performance. You can dynamically manage shared resources efficiently and increase resource utilization with Intel® Resource Director Technology (Intel® RDT) offering cache monitoring and allocation technology, code and data prioritization, and memory bandwidth monitoring. Accelerated cryptographic performance enables encrypted data to move fast over secure connections, plus improved security keys help safeguard network access and deepen platform protection.

“Supermicro’s total Infrastructure solutions maximize performance, density and efficiency with architecture innovations optimized for the latest Intel Xeon processor technology, high performance NVMe, and SIOM flexible networking up to 100G. Our expanding range of server and storage platforms including the new Simply Double SuperStorage, FatTwin, TwinPro, Ultra, MicroCloud, MicroBlade and SuperBlade provide the ultimate range of complete infrastructure building blocks.”  

Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro

Server Systems Management

Supermicro Server Manager (SSM) provides capabilities to monitor the health of server components including memory, hard drives and RAID controllers. It enables the datacenter administrator to monitor and manage power usage across all Supermicro servers allowing users to maximize their CPU payload while mitigating the risk of tripped circuit. Firmware upgrades on Supermicro servers became easier now with a couple of clicks. Administrators can now mount an ISO image on multiple servers and reboot the servers with those images. The tool also provides pre-defined reports and many more features that will make managing Supermicro servers simpler. Download the SSM_brochure for more info or download Supermicro SuperDoctor® device monitoring and management software.
