Super Micro, a global leader in green computing innovation and high-efficiency server technology, has developed an impressive product portfolio of high-performance, high-density systems for HPC, enterprise data center, and cloud environments. The Supermicro Twin2, Supermicro TwinPro, and other Supermicro Twin solutions offer IT managers the cost-effective server platforms and cutting-edge technologies they need to boost processing performance and data throughput speeds while reducing space and energy consumption in the data center.
In addition to their enhanced power efficiency and space-saving form factors, Supermicro Twin2 servers—and all of Thinkmate’s innovative Twin-architecture Super Micro servers—feature hot-pluggable nodes for easy maintenance as well as advanced thermal designs for more efficient cooling, helping further lower data center OPEX.
Realizing the demand for increased energy efficiency and server density in today’s HPC, web hosting, cloud computing, and enterprise application environments, Supermicro created and continues to improve its line of Supermicro Twin server solutions. Leveraging Supermicro’s patented Twin technology, the Supermicro Twin2 is one of a broad spectrum of resource-optimized Twin solutions offering superior reliability and the highest system-level efficiency in the industry.
Supermicro’s Twin architecture conserves energy and minimizes server footprint through the sharing of power and cooling resources, and it improves serviceability through the use of hot-swappable nodes and reduced cabling. The latest generation of Supermicro Twin solutions, including the Supermicro Twin Pro, provide powerful processing and storage capabilities and unparalleled memory capacity, supporting dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v2 or v3 processors, onboard 12 Gbps SAS 3.0 controllers, and up to 1 TB of DDR3 or DDR4 ECC memory in a 2U rackmount form factor.
Extending the benefits of the Supermicro Twin architecture, the Supermicro Twin2 achieves breakthrough x86 server performance-per-watt, maximizing energy efficiency through the integration of airflow-optimized motherboard and chassis designs, intelligent speed control fans, and titanium-level, high-efficiency power supplies.
Optimized for HPC clusters, web servers, and hyperscale data centers, the Supermicro Twin2 gives you four hot-swap dual-socket compute nodes in a 2U server configuration, redundant power supplies, and three 3.5-inch (or six 2.5-inch) SAS/SATA hot-swappable local storage drives per node. For data-intensive and high-transaction rate applications, the Supermicro Twin2 offers a number of high-performance networking and storage connectivity options including built-in 40 Gbps QDR or 56 Gbps FDR InfiniBand for maximum network bandwidth and integrated 6Gbps SAS host bus adapters and RAID controllers for improved storage performance.
