Supermicro expands edge computing and network appliance portfolio with new high density SOC products

Super Micro, a provider of enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, has announced several new additions to its edge computing and network appliance portfolio based on the new Intel Xeon D-2100 SoC (System-on-a-Chip) processor.

Leveraging its expertise in server technology, Supermicro is bringing customers some of the first Intel Xeon D-2100 System-on-a-Chip (SoC) processor-based solutions. The company’s X11SDV series motherboards offer infrastructure optimisation by combining the performance and advanced intelligence of Intel Xeon processors into a dense, lower-power system-on-a-chip.

Supermicro is introducing a wide range of new systems to the market including compact embedded systems, rackmount embedded systems, as well as multi-node MicroCloud and SuperBlade systems.

With server-class reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features now available in an ultra-dense, low-power device, Supermicro X11SDV platforms deliver balanced compute and storage for intelligent edge computing and network appliances. These advanced technology building blocks offer the best workload optimised solutions and long life availability with the Intel® Xeon® D-2100 processor family, available with up to 18 processor cores, up to 512GB DDR4 four-channel memory operating at 2666MHz, up to four 10GbE LAN ports with RDMA support, and available with integrated Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT) crypto/encrypt/decrypt acceleration engine and internal storage expansion options including mini-PCIe, M.2 and NVMe support.

‘These compact new Supermicro Embedded Building Block solutions bring advanced technologies and performance into a dense, low-power system-on-a-chip architecture, extending intelligence to the data center and network edge,’ said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. ‘With the vast growth of data driven workloads across embedded applications worldwide, Supermicro remains dedicated to developing powerful, agile, and scalable IoT gateway and compact server, storage and networking solutions that deliver the best end to end ecosystems for ease of deployment and open scalability.’

Supermicro's new SYS-E300-9D is a compact box embedded system that is designed for the following applications:  network security appliance, SD-WAN, vCPE controller box, and NFV edge computing server. Based on Supermicro’s X11SDV-4C-TLN2F mini-ITX motherboard with four-core, 60-watt Intel Xeon D-2123IT SoC this system supports up to 512GB memory, dual 10GbE RJ45 ports, quad USB ports, and one SATA/SAS hard drive, SSD or NVMe SSD.

The new SYS-5019D-FN8TP is a compact (less than 10-inch depth) 1U rackmount embedded system that is ideal for cloud and virtualisation, network appliance and embedded applications. Featuring Supermicro’s X11SDV-8C-TP8F flex-ATX motherboard supporting the eight-core, 80-watt Intel Xeon D-2146NT SoC, this power and space efficient system with built-in Intel QAT crypto and compression supports up to 512GB memory, four GbE RJ45 ports, dual 10GbE SFP+ and dual 10GbE RJ45 ports, dual USB 3.0 ports, four 2.5” internal SATA/SAS hard drives or SSDs, and internal storage expansion options including mini-PCIe, M.2 and NVMe support.
