Exploring Supermicro’s X14 Family: Unleashing Power and Efficiency

Posted on 04 June, 2024

As a trusted partner of Supermicro, Boston Limited can now introduce the leading edge X14 server portfolio. These servers, powered by the newly presented Intel Xeon 6 processors, redefine performance and scalability for data centres worldwide.

The X14 Advantage

Building Block Architecture: Modular flexibility 

Supermicro’s X14 systems adopt the proven Building Block Architecture, providing modular flexibility for diverse workloads. Whether you’re running AI models, managing cloud services or handling edge deployments, the X14 platform adapts seamlessly. The modular design allows for easy customisation, ensuring that your data centre infrastructure aligns precisely with your business needs.

Socket Compatibility with Intel Xeon 6 Processors

The heart of the X14 Family lies in its compatibility with Intel’s latest Xeon 6 processors. These chips deliver exceptional performance-per-core, making them ideal for HPC, storage and AI workloads. With up to 576 cores per node, the X14 servers allow data centres to tackle complex tasks efficiently.

Efficient-Core (E-Core) and Performance-Core (P-Core) SKUs 

Choose from E-Core SKUs for energy-efficient cloud and analytics tasks or opt for P-Core SKUs to boost performance in AI and edge applications. Supermicro’s X14 systems cater to your specific needs. The E-Core SKUs prioritise power efficiency, while the P-Core SKUs provide raw computational power for demanding workloads. This flexibility ensures that your data centre can handle diverse tasks without compromise.

Intel Accelerator Engines: Enhancing AI Workloads 

Supermicro integrates Intel Accelerator Engines, including support for FP16 on Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions. These engines enhance AI workloads, accelerating neural network training and inferencing. Whether you’re deploying machine learning models or running AI simulations, the X14 Family delivers the performance needed for data-driven insights.

Next-Gen Connectivity: PCIe 5.0, CXL 2.0 and NVMe Storage

Supermicro’s X14 servers support PCIe 5.0, CXL 2.0 and NVMe storage. Faster data transfer and reduced application execution times are within reach. The X14 Family ensures seamless connectivity, allowing data centres to keep up with the demands of modern applications. Whether you’re handling large datasets or real-time analytics, these servers provide the necessary bandwidth.

Early Access Programs: Accelerating Time-to-Solution 

Boston offers early access to the X14 systems through Supermicro’s Early Ship program. Qualified customers can participate and gain free remote access for testing and validation via the JumpStart Program. This early access allows data centre administrators to evaluate the X14 servers firsthand, ensuring a smooth transition to the new platform.
