- L'azienda presenta la nuova linea di soluzioni High Performance Computing ottimizzate per il nuovo processore AMD Opteron a 16 core
SAN JOSE, California, 5 novembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), leader mondiale nell'innovazione della tecnologia per server ad alte prestazioni ed elevata efficienza e nelle soluzioni di green computing, ha aggiornato la propria linea di server A+ con i nuovissimi processori AMD (NYSE: AMD) Opteron™ serie 6300. Le nuove piattaforme server e tower A+ offrono prestazioni superiori di oltre il 24% rispetto alle soluzioni della generazione precedente e permettono di massimizzare la densità di elaborazione del processore e il core count, supportando un maggior numero di memorie virtuali per le applicazioni cloud pubbliche e private. La performance per watt è fino al 40% superiore, con una gestione e un monitoraggio termico/elettrico intelligente, e consente ai centri di elaborazione dati di gestire efficaci sistemi di software su larga scala per massimizzare le prestazioni e ridurre il costo del possesso (TCO) totale dei clienti. Con architetture biprocessore (DP) e multiprocessore (MP), Supermicro aumenta la produttività e la performance dei centri di elaborazione dati e delle applicazioni per computer cluster di alte prestazioni.
La linea di server A+ di Supermicro che supporta i processori Opteron serie 6300 include soluzioni DP 1U (AS-1022G-URF) che supportano l'architettura UIO per opzioni di espansione I/O flessibili, opzioni multiple di schede di espansione, tra cui SAS/SATA RAID5, Ethernet a 10Gb e Infiniband per le applicazioni HPC più impegnative. Fattori di forma ad alta densità di elaborazione nei sistemi MP 1U (AS-1042G-TF) e MP 2U (AS2042G-6RF) supportano processori quad con fino a 64 core e 1TB di memoria DDR3 e interconnessione InfiniBand QDR ad alta velocità per database ad alte prestazioni e applicazioni SQL server. Il 2UTwin2® a quattro nodi (AS-2022TG-HLIBQRF) supporta due processori AMD Opteron a 16 core e memoria DDR3-1866 per nodo, con Mellanox InfiniBand onboard e alimentatori ad alta efficienza livello platino (94%+) da 1620 watt ridondanti. Una soluzione 4U/Tower (AS-4022G-6F) nei sistemi DP e (AS-4042G-6RF) nei sistemi MP offre la massima capacità di memoria, supportando fino a 8 alloggiamenti hot-swap per hard disk SAS/SATA. Per una performance di elaborazione ottimale, SuperBlade® massimizza la densità di elaborazione del processore Opteron serie 6300 con 20 nodi DP (SBA-7222G-T2) o 10 nodi MP (SBA-7142G-T4) in un solo blade enclosure 7U, che supporta fino a 3.840 core in un rack 42U, con interconnessione ad alta velocità e bassa latenza che utilizza switch FDR InfiniBand.
"Supermicro e AMD offrono da sempre il miglior rapporto prezzo/performance per le soluzioni di server ad alte prestazioni," afferma Don Clegg, Vice Presidente del settore Marketing and Business Development di Supermicro. "Con l'aggiunta dei nuovi processori AMD Opteron serie 6300 a tutte le nostre piattaforme A+, eleviamo i nostri standard offrendo prestazioni migliori, maggiore efficienza energetica e nuove funzioni di gestione del consumo di energia. Insieme, aiutiamo i clienti a ottimizzare il loro budget IT e raggiungere livelli più alti di virtualizzazione con piattaforme di elaborazione più economiche e scalabili."
"Siamo entusiasti del lancio dei nostri nuovi processori AMD Opteron serie 6300, in un momento in cui il mercato del cloud computing e dei big data è in rapida espansione," ha dichiarato John Williams, vicepresidente, Server Marketing and Business Development, AMD. "Supermicro, player globale con molta esperienza in questi settori e fornitore di lunga data di soluzioni insieme ad AMD, dispone di un'ampia linea di piattaforme 2P/4P pronte e ottimizzate per i nostri processori di ultima generazione.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
