Super Micro Computer, a supplier of computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, has launched the industry’s first family of server and storage systems that support EDSFF (Enterprise and Datacenter Storage Form Factor) NVMe drives.
Back in April we did a piece on digital storage used for the imaging of the black hole event horizon of a black hole in a neighboring galaxy (M87), 55 million light-years away, including the Western Digital helium sealed HDDs used to capture data at the 8 radio telescopes that were analyzed by astronomers at MIT and the Max Planck institute (MPI) in Germany. Since then we were contacted by Supermicro about their servers and storage used in the processing of the event horizon data to create the images. What follows is some information about what we found out.
Today Super Micro Computer launched the industry's first family of server and storage systems that support EDSFF (Enterprise and Datacenter Storage Form Factor) NVMe drives. Supermicro (Super Micro Computer Incorporated, SMCI) was founded in 1993 and is one of the fastest growing IT companies in the world. Supermicro provides a wide range of products and servers; most focused around cloud software and hardware.
Supermicro Introduces Industry’s First Server & Storage Systems Supporting EDSFF – First Compact Open Industry Standard for All-Flash NVMe Optimized Storage
Two months ago, the first-ever image of a black hole took the internet by storm. A team of scientists took years to produce and verify the striking image – and now, Tom Coughlin (on behalf of Supermicro) has provided a behind-the-scenes look at the hardware that helped make it possible.
The Supermciro AS-E301-9D-8CN4 is one of the more obtuse model names, but it is certainly one of the most exciting embedded servers we have seen in some time. It takes the same CSE-300 chassis footprint and adds extra space for more storage. By stretching the case from 1U to 1.5U, the expansion capabilities of the chassis increase dramatically. In our review, we are going to look at the Supermicro AS-E301-9D-8CN4’s key features. We will then test the performance and power consumption of the onboard AMD EPYC 3251 8-core, 16-thread SoC.
