Supermicro 2U Twin²® Solutions
The 2U Twin²® extends Supermicro's innovative Twin architecture with hot-swappable compute nodes in space-efficient form factors to facilitate ease of maintenance, reduce/eliminate down time, while saving power and space by sharing the same chassis and power supplies. The 2U Twin² model is optimized for space efficiency and performance-per-watt, featuring four hot-swappable 1U compute nodes in a 2U form factor, each with up to six hot-swap 2.5" SAS2/SATA3 drive bays for exceptional storage capacity. The 2U Twin² also offers one x16 native PCI-Express 3.0 slot for highest non-blocking I/O bandwidth, 8 DIMM slots per node for up to 2TB DDR4-2933MHz memory, onboard Gigabit Ethernet or Mellanox® ConnectX3 single-port 56Gbps InfiniBand to provide greatest networking connectivity, and redundant 1600-watt Titanium Level (96%+) power supplies for greatest efficiency.
The 2U Twin² is designed to further satisfy the ever-increasing efficiency, density, and low-TCO demands of today's High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters, Data Center Web Server and Virtualization, Cloud, and Hyperscale environments.
