Supermicro is First-to-Market with NEBS Level 3 Certified 1U Server -- Delivers 2,560 NVIDIA GPU Cores for 5G Edge AI & VR Innovation
SAN JOSE, California, Sept. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- 1U System Is Ideal for 5G Workloads, AI, AR/VR, and Offers Industry's
   Broadest Portfolio of GPU Servers for Optimized Compute Workloads   

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a global leader in enterprise 
computing, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, today 
announced an industry-first 1U NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) Level 3 
certified system with up to four (4) NVIDIA V100 or V100S Tensor Core GPUs. The 
new server system enables the latest AI, AR/VR, transcoding, gaming, and other 
high-compute workloads with low latency requirements in the telecom

The new 1U system is available with either redundant AC or DC Power Supply 
(1+1) options and has nine (9) 4cm fans to provide a robust cooling system that 
supports the extended temperature range.  Also included are 2x 2.5" hot-swap 
SAS/SATA drive bays and 2x 2.5" internal drive bays. The system provides for 
secure SNMP v3, IPv6, and IPMI for management.

"Supermicro is first-to-market with a 1U NEBS Level 3 V100 GPU accelerated 
server,  a key enabler for the transition to 5G, with industry adoption of the 
most advanced applications and workloads found in AI/AR, and IoT," said Charles 
Liang, president, and CEO of Supermicro. "We have already received strong 
market interest in this system, which complements our extensive GPU portfolio, 
including 2U, 4U, and 10U multi-GPU servers leveraging our and resource-saving 

"The AI, HPC, data science, graphics, and 5G/telecommunications markets-from 
edge to core -- continue to grow and present unprecedented computational 
challenges," said  Paresh Kharya Senior Director of Product Management for 
accelerated computing at NVIDIA. "The NVIDIA V100 GPU in the Supermicro NEBS 
Level 3 compliant system will enable more customers to leverage the performance 
and scalability required for these markets."

The criticality of NEBS Level 3 cannot be overstated for the growing market 
conversion from 4G to 5G, along with ever more complex and demanding 
applications coming to the edge. This new system extends the operating 
temperature to 55 (degrees) C and meets the shock and vibration, flame 
resistance, and other stringent testing to complete the GR-1089 and GR-63 suite 
of tests required for full NEBS Level 3 compliance. The server's foundation of 
2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with built-in AI acceleration and 
Intel Optane persistent memory to utilize the NVIDIA GPUs to their fullest 
potential. This design allows mobile operators to upgrade their systems with 
higher-performance GPUs to accelerate voice and data traffic, as well as 
provide new edge applications and services, using servers that meet their 
rigorous reliability standards.

This industry-first Supermicro 1U NEBS L3 system joins an extensive portfolio 
of GPU systems that support demanding workloads, requiring GPU acceleration 
capabilities. In addition to the 1U system, Supermicro offers multiple GPU 
options, including 2, 4, 6, 10, 16, and 20 GPUs in 2U, 4U, and 10U form 
factors. The product line supports up to 56 CPU processor cores per server, 
205W TDP CPUs, and 6TB DDR4-2933 MHz memory in 24 DIMMs. These servers give 
customers multiple options for NVMe, SAS, or SATA drives, providing maximum
