Write an article about the data center server and Supermicro 

The latest generation X11 Supermicro Data Center Optimized SuperServer product line is intended to provide the greatest effectiveness and per-dollar to modern data center server, pierce the server market with astounding power and performance. Featuring all-new Intel X-Gene 3 processors, this product line is at an impressive 850-watt TDP. 

SuperServer packs a lot of punch in an easily manageable form factor. What makes it so great is that it uses all new components yet still stacks up against similar systems when optimizing for performance, power consumption, or any other key metric for data center servers today. This article will detail how Supermicro builds a flexible system that can mix and match different configurations to fit any need your data center may have.

Data center server from Supermicro at CeBIT; SuperServer’s flexibility and ease of use are what sets it apart from its competitors. This post will detail the various configurations we have available for this product line, and why this is a very attractive option for anyone looking for a powerful data center server. The main goal of Supermicro’s Data Center server is to provide customers with the best solutions for maximizing ROI on the current level of technology. 

The new lines of the X11 system from Supermicro include a standard form factor that can stack up against similar machines in terms of performance and power consumption, as well as another variant, which will provide unmatched density in terms of size. The data center server is available in the standard SYS-5028D-TN4T, SYS-7028D-TN4T, SYS-8028DTN4T, and SYS-3328D-TN4T models.

The various configurations of Supermicro’s SuperServer line come in either standard or compact form factors. The compact model comes in a 1U (1/1e) form factor that packs a tremendous amount of storage and power into an easily manageable package. When it comes to performance and power consumption, the compact variant can match or beat similar machines. It can also be configured with two 2.5″ HDDs to make it more space efficient. The standard form factor is more traditional and can be found in 1U (1/1) and 2U (2/2) form factors. The standard variant is probably the most common and cost-effective of the two. The 1U model will be described in more detail, but the 2U variant will use a method called stacked configurations, which allows Supermicro to provide even better density as well as performance when compared to similar machines.

Both variants feature Intel’s new generation of Intel Xeon® 5500 series processors that are based on Intel’s latest Skylake-SP architecture. Supermicro has specified the same processors that are found in the 1U variant, which is the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 series. This processor is one of the most powerful on the market and offers both top-to-bottom architecture as well as feature sets. The processor itself is a complete server core built on a 22nm process. This means it includes integrated 10 Gigabit Ethernet (Intel i350), 48 Execution Units (EUs), support for Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT), and Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (AES-NI). It also supports Intel VT-x and VT-d virtualization technologies.

The actual motherboard used in the standard configuration of the 1U variant is an Intel C621 chipset. In addition to the aforementioned features, it includes multiple PCIe slots and both 32 and 64-GB DDR3L RDIMMs. The memory used is also a real-time clock module (RTC), which has been a feature of previous-generation Supermicro servers.

In terms of storage, we have 1x 2.5″ HDD and 4x 3.5″ HDD that can be configured at any time during the server’s lifetime with multiple hard drives, as well as uniquely designed optical drives to support a wide variety of discs or media types.
