Supermicro Introduces Open Private Cloud Solutions Based on New Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise compute, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, has introduced open private cloud solutions on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, and Supermicro cloud-optimized server and storage systems.

Supermicro and Red Hat have collaborated to develop powerful open private cloud solutions based on Supermicro’s industry-leading SuperServer and SuperStorage systems as well as Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. With fully integrated hardware, software and support packages, these new solutions built with enterprise Kubernetes provide the ability to deploy and manage containers in an on-premises, private and hybrid cloud environment.

Supermicro open private cloud solutions based on Red Hat OpenShift utilize advanced features from Supermicro’s 2U BigTwin™ systems with four dual-processor server nodes and Simply Double SuperStorage systems supporting 24 hot-swap 3.5-inch hard drives in 2U. The cloud-optimized design enhances infrastructure efficiency by leveraging 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, high-performance NVMe and 25G Ethernet. These optimized solutions are designed for modern datacenters with easier deployment to improve OPEX. For demanding and complex applications such as AI (artificial intelligence) and Big Data, performance accelerated options are available to include Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory, GPU accelerators and 100GbE networking.
