Supermicro Workstation Brings Added Expandability to CAD Users

Supermicro WorkstationSupermicro’s latest series of high-performance Workstation Servers are based on Intel’s highly efficient E3-1200 V3 Processors. Supermicro X10 products represent Intel’s latest, single-processor high-performance computing architecture and are featured in a number of new workstations to take advantage of their many benefits. Today’s workstation users demand higher performance, efficiency, expandability and reliability than ever before. Users in the fields of CAD, CAM, Video Editing and Science Research are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to getting more from their workstations. When the initial investment is made in a workstation or server, the benefits in productivity and efficiency begin paying for itself within weeks, if not days. It would be literally impossible these days for a CAD user to shop for the latest computing technology without looking at and seriously considering the Supermicro Workstation product line. What separates the Supermicro X10 Workstation from the competition?

New Intel Silvermont Designed to Get More Out of Less

Intel SilvermontAdvancements of Intel CPU architecture continues to encourage Aspen Systems to offer data centers and crowded server environments more powerful, energy efficient solutions. Intel’s latest, 2nd-generation, Intel Silvermont processor series appears to be aimed towards the cloud as it packs an incredible amount of power and connectivity within an extremely, low-power processor environment. Atom processors no longer mean what they used to mean. This is what data centers are after, isn’t it?
 
The latest, Silvermont series is part of the Atom C2000 processor family and is built for CPU workload optimization. Intel had already designed and engineered cards using SoC (System on Chip) for high-volume customers like eBay, Facebook and other cloud companies in the past. The latest C2000 Atom family should make energy-efficient, high-computing power more readily customizable for other business consumers requiring highly efficient workload computing.

IDC Storage Predictions and What is Really Happening

IDC Storage PredictionsWith millions of dollars being invested in forecasting technology trends every year, IT departments must be dizzy from comparing the actual forecasts to what is really occurring in their data centers and server environments on a daily basis. IDC has an entire storage team built upon so-called, experts and analysts whose job is to tell us what is going to happen. If that seems as unsure as predicting the weather, you’re obviously one of those who work in a data center. Nonetheless, these forecasters can hopefully offset some of the unknown trends in the storage industry and share some of the burden of firms making storage investment decisions for the near and distant future. The truth, however, is that we are well into the 3rd quarter of 2013 and there have been no real surprises.

Samsung Advances Enterprise SSD Technology

Samsung-V-NAND-SSD-DriveBoth, the Desktop and Enterprise-Data Center SSD markets, continue to grow and evolve at an astonishing pace. Earlier this year, Intel launched a series of high-durability S3500 and S3700 extended, MLC Solid State drives. The, prior MLC technology was considered inadequate for most enterprise server and data center storage needs, due to its shorter write-life-spans. As the demand for storage took off earlier this, we, at Aspen Systems, couldn’t seem to get these new, Intel drives fast enough to complete the growing number of orders for enterprise storage and servers.

Supermicro Workstation Chassis Delivers Whisper-Quiet Operation

Supermicro Workstation ChassisLook at the Supermicro workstation chassis for a clear picture of how well technology has evolved. Until recently, Workstation chassis were most often considered power-hungry gluttons with enough fan noise to rival a jet taking off a runway. As Intel iCore and Xeon processors have advanced, noise and power draw no longer have to be what they used to be. Supermicro has continued to make new designs that take advantage of the latest, most power-efficient processors with efficient, high quality exhaust fans. Using superior engineering and innovation the Supermicro SC732 chassis is so quiet you might actually forget it is powered on. Read more…

ASUS 1U Server Delivers Extreme Efficiency

ASUS 1U Haswell ServerThere is no better technology company in the world when it comes to delivering more with less bulk. ASUS’s latest, E3-1200 series 1U Server is a remarkable combination of energy efficiency, innovation, engineering and good looks. If there is one feature of ASUS computing products that always stands above the competition, it is appearance. While great-looking innovation may seem important only for consumer products, enterprise business and data centers actually do pay a great deal of attention to form factor appearance when it comes to servers and storage. While you might not be able to judge a book by it’s cover, examining the outside appearance of the RS300-E8-RS4 1U server says a great deal about its capabilities, features and design. Read more…

ASUS Releases Super-Fast PCI Express RAID-Based SSD Drive

ASUS RAIDR ExpressMake no mistake about it, ROG (ASUS Republic of Gamers) latest announcement is more than just for gamers and PC enthusiast and most likely has some roots fully planted in the server and storage industry by one of the leaders in the industry; ASUS. Using high speed PCI Express technology, to boost read and write access times is imperative for high-speed, tiered storage solutions, where gaming and PC enthusiasts do share some similar technology demands. The performance industry has always enjoyed some overlap between the consumer and enterprise marketplace. Perhaps, until now, there has never been a better example of this than with video cards, particularly NVIDIA’s GTX GPU technology which is used by both gaming enthusiasts and scientific markets requiring high-performance 3D rendering. It’s always seemed a bit odd how some of the most expensive computer hardware technology in some cases is more often demanded by gamers than in enterprise business. The reality is that a highly detailed, fast and smooth gaming experience requires some of the same hardware demanded in server and storage rooms as well as scientific modeling environments. But, fast rendering is not the only technology requirement of PC enthusiasts, Modeling Scientists and Enterprise Storage managers. Read more…
