Supermicro NVMesh Solutions

The Supermicro NVMesh Reference Architecture implements the next-generation of intelligent infrastructure platforms designed to provide applications with all of the raw performance you can expect from local storage — and all of the flexibility, manageability and scalability typically experienced with traditional storage area network-based solutions. Leveraging the latest NVMe and PCIe standards, this reference architecture uses a low-latency, high-bandwidth networking to connect compute and storage together in a flexible way that will fit almost any application’s architecture requirements.

 Solution Key Benefits

  • Maximize the utilization of your NVMe SSD’s
  • Predictable application performance
  • Supports standard hardware & protocols
  • Use as block storage or with any file system
  • Easy to manage & monitor

NVMesh is a Software-Defined Block Storage solution that features Elastic NVMe, a distributed block layer that allows unmodified applications to utilize pooled NVMe storage devices across a network at local speeds and latencies.

Distributed NVMe storage resources are pooled with the ability to create arbitrary, dynamic block volumes that can be utilized by any host running the NVMesh block client. These virtual volumes can be striped, mirrored or both while enjoying centralized management, monitoring and administration.

Supermicro BigTwin

 Big Twin Details

The Supermicro BigTwin is the first and only 2U multi-node system supporting the highest performance processor, memory, storage, I/O and an incredible 30% better thermal capacity, leveraging the Titanium Level 96% efficient PowerStick power supplies (2200W/2600W). The 5th generation of Supermicro’s Twin architecture is fully optimized for today’s diverse workloads and architected for further technology breakthroughs.

The system delivers the highest performance and efficiency in a 2U 4-node platform. It supports the widest TDP range of CPUs (up to 205W), fully exploits all memory channels with 24 DIMMS per node and 24 All-Flash NVMe drives. Finally, the SuperMicro BigTwin provides
100% more I/O capacity and added flexibility with more than10 networking options including 1GbE, 10G, 25G, 100G, IB and industry-leading SIOM modular interconnect.

 Big Twin Benefits

  • A Full Range of Processors Up to the highest performing 205W CPUs
  • Maximum Memory Full 24 DIMMs of memory per node
  • All-Flash NVMe 24 All-Flash NVMe or Hybrid Drives
  • Double the I/O Capacity Three PCI-E 3.0 x16 options per node
