12Gbps SAS3, NVMe, 10GbE, 40GbE and 56Gbps FDR InfiniBand
31 January 2014
Supermicro has announced the next generation of 2U Twin architecture servers named TwinPro (2-node) and TwinPro² (4-node). New technologies integrated along with these new TwinPro servers are 12Gbs SAS 3.0 controllers (based on LSI 3108/3008) to maximized storage I/O, NVM Express (NVMe) for secure, accelerated PCI-E SSD performance and onboard 10GbE or InfiniBand 56Gbs FDR/40Gbs QDR options for maximum network bandwidth.
Additional features include greater memory capacity of up to 1TB ECC DDR3 1866MHz memory in 16x DIMMs, additional PCI-E 3.0 expansion slots, up to 12x 2.5” or 6x 3.5” hot-swap HDD/SSD trays per node and support for a full-length, double-width GPU (2x SXM GPU option available) or Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor per node in the 2U TwinPro models.

"Inherent to the innovative Twin architecture is the energy efficiency achieved with airflow optimized motherboard and chassis designs, shared 80mm fans with intelligent speed control and redundant, hot-swappable Platinum Level high-efficiency (95%) digital switching power supplies (Titanium Level >96% option). In addition, these systems are easily serviceable with hot-swap nodes, reduced cabling and secure, remote server management through IPMI. The resulting total advantage is lowest overall TCO for customers seeking the greatest competitive edge in challenging IT environments."
