A 1U rack server represents the smallest unit that can be mounted in a standard 42U rack. It is the smallest building block in the rack and can be used to scale up or down incrementally to accommodate computing and storage requirements. One of the most versatile 1U servers in the market is the Supermicro 1U server. It can be configured with a wide range of components and features to meet most application requirements at excellent price points.
Thinkmate offers a full range of 1U servers from Supermicro, from very cost effective short depth Supermicro 1U servers running low power CPUs to full 1U size high density servers running multi-core CPUs and parallel multi-processors.
At the lower cost end of the range, the low power Intel® Atom™ CPU is used to power short depth and full depth Supermicro 1U servers. These servers can be configured with up to 64GB of DDR3 memory and four SATA drives. Options to upgrade to SAS 12Gb/s controller and drives are also available.
A step up from Intel Atom CPU configurations are the Supermicro 1U servers with dual-core Intel Core™ i3, i5, and i7 CPUs. These configurations are available in short and full depth 1U chassis with up to eight SAS/SATA drives (6.0Gb/s and 12Gb/s). A maximum of 32GB or DDR3 memory can be installed. Several of the full depth configurations come with high efficiency redundant power supplies.
If CPUs with greater than two cores are required, Supermicro 1U server configurations with Intel Xeon® and AMD Opteron™ CPUs are available. These Supermicro 1U short and full depth configurations allow up to four Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron CPUs, 1TB of DDR3 or DDR4 memory, and twelve SAS/SATA drives (6.0Gb/s and 12Gb/s). Several PCIe NVMe 3.0 drives can also be included in configurations. Most of the full depth chassis come with high efficiency redundant power supplies.
For supercomputing-level processing power, Supermicro 1U servers include options for GPU co-processors. With Intel Xeon main CPUs, up to four Nvidia® Tesla™, Nvidia GRID™, AMD FirePro™, or Intel Xeon Phi™ co-processors can be configured yielding supercomputer performance in a 1U chassis.
All Supermicro 1U servers can be configured with high throughput network interconnects. Options range from 1-Gigabit ethernet to 40/56-Gigabit ethernet to 56-Gigabit FDR InfiniBand and Fibre Channel.
