Supermicro Adds ARM-based Servers using Ampere(R) Altra(R) and Ampere Altra(R) Max Processors targeting Cloud-Native Applications
SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Performance Optimized Servers in the Supermicro MegaDC family, paired with 
Ampere(R) Altra(R) and Altra(R) Max CPUs, help Lower Operational Costs through 
Innovative Architecture 

Supermicro (NASDAQ: SMCI), a Total IT Solution Provider for Cloud, AI/ML, 
Storage, and 5G/Edge, is announcing an expanded product line with exciting new 
ARM-based series of servers as part of the MegaDC ( 
) family. Using Ampere Altra(R) and Ampere Altra(R) Max processors, the Mt. 
Hamilton platform leverages a single unified motherboard design, targeting 
cloud-native applications, such as Cloud Gaming, Video-on-Demand, CDN, IaaS, 
Database, Object-Storage, dense VDI, and Telco Edge (Distributed Unit and 
Centralized Unit) solutions. In addition, the new servers address several 
objectives for cloud-native workloads, specifically delivering high performance 
per watt while executing scalable workloads and those that require very low 
latency responses.

"Supermicro continues to bolster our product line by introducing ARM-based 
servers, using the Ampere Altra and Altra Max CPUs," said Ivan Tay, SVP of 
Product Management, Supermicro. "Expanding our already broad server product 
line gives customers even more choices for their specific workloads. We can 
quickly offer optimized application servers for customers worldwide using our 
Building Block Solutions approach."

Supermicro's MegaDC ARM-based product lines use a Building Block design which 
features a single socket motherboard paired with an Ampere Altra or Altra Max 
CPU with up to 128 cores per server (currently the highest core count in the 
server industry), up to 4TB of DDR4 memory, and a modular design supporting 
unparalleled options for max I/O, PCIe, and storage.

The Supermicro MegaDC product line includes a range of servers with a single 
Ampere Altra or Altra Max CPU, in a 1U or 2U form factor, with up to four 
double-width GPUs or up to 24x 2.5" U.2 NVMe hot-swappable drives. In addition, 
the systems include an onboard redundant 25GbE SFP28 Ethernet networking using 
NVIDIA Mellanox CX4. Designed with highly efficient air cooling, the Supermicro 
ARM-based line of servers has been certified up to 35degreesC (95degreesF) 
ambient temperature for Enterprise and 55degreesC (131degreesF) for Edge 

"In collaboration with Supermicro, Mt. Hamilton brings Ampere's dense, 
efficient compute to a broad set of use cases from the central cloud to the 
distributed edge," said Jeff Wittich, Chief Product Officer, Ampere. 
"Leveraging Ampere's Cloud Native processors, Mt. Hamilton enables 2-3X more 
performance per rack on common cloud native workloads, helping customers better 
meet the scalability demands of the cloud now and in the future."
