Supermicro BigTwin™ Solutions
The Supermicro BigTwin™ is the first and only 2U multi-node system supporting the highest performance processor, memory, storage, I/O and an incredible 30% better thermal capacity. The 5th generation of Supermicro's Twin architecture is fully optimized for today's diverse workloads and architected for further technology breakthroughs.
Performance: Supporting the 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors up to 205W, the BigTwin achieves incredible performance in a 2U multi-node platform. Each node of the BigTwin supports up to 6TB DDR4-2933MHz in 24 DIMM slots for dramatically faster and increased memory capacity compared to previous generations of Twin systems, as well as support for Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory. With up to 12 hot-swappable 2.5" drive bays per node, storage performance is accelerated with options for All-Flash NVMe, SAS or SATA drives.
Density: BigTwin systems boast incredibly high density with up to 4 hot swappable nodes in a 2U form factor, and double the I/O capacity of competitive 2U solutions. Support for Supermicro I/O Module (SIOM) enables flexible networking options of 1G, 10G, 25G, or 100G Ethernet or 100G InfiniBand/Omni-Path and frees up 2 low-profile PCI-E 3.0 x16 expansion slots per node.
Efficiency: Supermicro's Twin architecture is designed with power and cost efficiency in mind. The BigTwin reduces power consumption with shared cooling and power design, leveraging redundant 2200W high efficiency (96%) power supplies. Maximum compute in a 2U system enables data center footprints to be reduced by 50% compared to standard 2U servers with equivalent performance.
