Supermicro Introduces Rack Plug and Play Cloud Infrastructure with Free Remote Access Testing and Validation
SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

  -- The Total Rack Solution for Enterprise Kubernetes Containers, Based on
     RedHat OpenShift Delivers the Turn-Key Simplicity of Cloud Computing with
     On-Prem Infrastructure Cost Savings of up to 70%* 

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, 
storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, announced a free 
remote access testing and validation program ( 
) - JumpStart for the Supermicro Rack Plug and Play Cloud Infrastructure. The 
Supermicro Rack Plug and Play Cloud Infrastructure solution eliminates the 
burden of designing and deploying a custom in-house cloud solution with a 
preconfigured, pre-validated rack-level total configuration with the servers, 
software, storage, networking, and services for a world-class cloud 
infrastructure.  With the Supermicro JumpStart program, users can execute 
remote access testing and validation for their workloads on the cloud solution 
before deployment.

As more customers feel the burden of rising hosted cloud costs, many are 
looking to repatriate cloud workloads on lower-cost in-house infrastructure. 
Still, they want to avoid the requirement of building a custom in-house 
solution.  Supermicro, in collaboration with RedHat and Intel, has introduced a 
turn-key solution that will allow customers to bring up a scalable cloud 
infrastructure in days instead of weeks or months. The base configuration can 
be purchased outright or can be leased for approximately $3,000 per month(1). 
The flat fee model eliminates unforeseen usage charges - the more you use it, 
the more you save.

"The Supermicro Rack Plug and Play Cloud Infrastructure program provides 
game-changing cost and performance efficiencies for today's enterprise," said 
Charles Liang, president, and CEO, Supermicro. "On-the-shelf, fully assembled, 
validated rack systems including hardware and software are available, enabling 
rapid deployment and getting systems online faster. This program can save 
customers time and design effort. Our latest JumpStart initiative leverages 
Intel CPUs, Intel Optane Persistent Memory, All-Flash NVMe Storage, and 100GbE 
Networking for world-class performance.  With the RedHat OpenShift Container 
Platform and the JumpStart free remote access testing and validation 
configuration, customers can start the transition to the efficient, scalable 
on-prem cloud immediately."

The Supermicro JumpStart configuration is an entry-level option from the 
complete portfolio of Supermicro Rack Plug and Play Cloud Infrastructure 
solutions that include additional performance, modularity, high capacity, and 
extreme designs. These turn-key solutions include the rack, cabling, power, and 
cooling infrastructure to simplify solution deployment at scale.  It can 
support hundreds of instances and containers with up to a 70%* better TCO than 
hosted cloud offerings.  

"Red Hat OpenShift is the industry's leading enterprise Kubernetes platform and 
provides greater consistency across any infrastructure to better build, deploy 
and manage applications at scale," said Joe Fernandes, vice president, and 
general manager Core Cloud Platforms, Red Hat. "By combining the power of 
OpenShift with Intel's processors and Supermicro's cloud infrastructure 
solution, organizations can reduce costs and not only support immediate 
workload requirements but also better address future growth requirements as 
needed on more sophisticated systems. We are pleased to collaborate with 
Supermicro and Intel to help support customers across the open hybrid cloud."

"Intel is collaborating with Supermicro to make available a fully configured 
and ready to go cluster of systems with the latest Intel Xeon processors for 
testing of innovative software solutions," said Rose Schooler, Corporate Vice 
President, Global Data Center Sales at Intel. "Our 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable 
processors with built-in AI accelerators enable a new class of applications to 
be developed, delivering outstanding performance."

With the Supermicro JumpStart free remote access program, Supermicro customers 
can start immediately to validate and benchmark their applications, enabling 
hands-on experience with the solution. Accessing the program is easy and fast. 
Using Supermicro's JumpStart portal ( 
), interested parties can register ( 
), then access the solution through a secure portal.
