Supermicro Introduces Plug and Play Racked Cloud Infrastructure with Free Remote Access Testing and Validation
As more customers feel the burden of rising hosted cloud costs, many are looking to repatriate cloud workloads to in-house infrastructure at a lower cost. Nonetheless, they want to avoid the requirement to build a custom in-house solution. Supermicro, in collaboration with RedHat and Intel, has introduced a turnkey solution that will allow customers to set up a scalable cloud infrastructure in days instead of weeks or months. The basic configuration can be purchased directly or can be rented for approx. $ 3,000 per month1. The flat-rate model eliminates unforeseen user fees – the more you use it, the more you save.
“The Supermicro Rack Plug and Play Cloud Infrastructure program provides breakthrough cost and performance savings for today’s business,” said Charles liang, President and CEO, Supermicro. “Validated, fully assembled, ready-to-use rack systems, including hardware and software, are available, enabling rapid deployment and faster bringing systems online. This program can save customers time and design effort. Our latest JumpStart initiative leverages Intel processors, Intel Optane Persistent Memory, all-flash NVMe storage, and 100GbE networking for world-class performance With the RedHat OpenShift container platform and free setup for test and validation. With JumpStart remote access, customers can immediately begin the transition to the efficient and scalable on-premises cloud. “
The Supermicro JumpStart configuration is an entry-level option in the comprehensive Supermicro Rack Plug and Play Cloud Infrastructure solution portfolio that includes additional performance, scalability, high capacity and extreme designs. These turnkey solutions include rack, cabling, power and cooling infrastructure to simplify deployment of the solution at scale. It can support hundreds of instances and containers with up to 70% * higher total cost of ownership than hosted cloud offerings.
“Red Hat OpenShift is the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform and provides greater consistency across all infrastructures to better build, deploy and manage applications at scale,” said Joe Fernandes, vice president and director general cloud computing platforms, Red Hat. “By combining the power of OpenShift with processors from Intel and Supermicro’s cloud infrastructure solution, businesses can reduce costs and not only support immediate workload requirements, but also better meet the needs. future growth on more sophisticated systems. We are excited to work with Supermicro and Intel to help customers through the open hybrid cloud. “
“Intel is working with Supermicro to deliver a fully configured, ready-to-use cluster of systems with the latest Intel Xeon processors to test innovative software solutions,” said School Rose, Corporate Vice President, Global Data Center Sales at Intel. “Our 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with integrated AI accelerators enable a new class of applications to be developed, delivering exceptional performance.”
With the free Supermicro JumpStart remote access program, Supermicro customers can immediately begin validating and comparing their applications, enabling hands-on experience with the solution. Access to the program is quick and easy. Using Supermicro’s JumpStart portal, interested parties can Register now, then access the solution through a secure portal.
