Supermicro Computer’s 2U Ultra-E short-depth is the latest update to its NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) Level 3-certified server line-up.
“Increasingly, edge infrastructure is demanding the computational power found in Supermicro’s industry-standard server technologies,” said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “Our Ultra SuperServer is ideal for edge applications, and the short-depth 2U Ultra-E delivers enhanced features, including GPU and FPGA support, with faster performance and is optimised for a wide variety of workloads in 5G and telecommunications applications with lower power requirements, and now NEBS certification.”
The 2U Ultra-E server targets edge micro data centres and is fuelled by dual 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with up to 205-watt TDP. With front hot-swap drives and fan modules in a compact 22.6-inch depth, the server supports up to 6TB of DDR4 memory in 24 DIMM slots and features eight PCI-E 3.0 expansion slots for flexible networking, GPU, and FPGA selections. Ultra-E NEBS Level 3 versions will support either AC or DC power supplies.
Supermicro is working with open standards such as O-RAN based solutions, as operators are looking for commercial off the shelf (COTS) servers for their new infrastructure rollouts.
