Supermicro SYS-5019C-MR Power Consumption
Our Supermicro SYS-5019C-MR test server, we wanted to get some comparable power figures from. As a result, we pulled the 3.5″ Seagate hard drives, the Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx NIC and NVMe SSDs to get comparable figures at idle and still show off something we can compare using the Intel Xeon E-2186G.
- Idle: 34.2W
- STH 70% Load: 97.3W
- 100% Load: 137W
- Maximum Recorded: 162W
Often these servers will sit at idle for long periods of time. If you are sizing servers for web hosting style deployments, servers typically sit on the lower end of the spectrum, closer to the idle numbers versus the STH 70% load figures.
One number that we wanted to draw attention to is the idle power consumption. The Syupermicro SYS-5019C-MR 80Plus Platinum power supply choice is paying off with lower power consumption.
STH Server Spider: Supermicro SYS-5019C-MR
In the second half of 2018, we introduced the STH Server Spider as a quick reference to where a server system’s aptitude lies. Our goal is to start giving a quick visual depiction of the types of parameters that a server is targeted at.
With substantial features like a redundant power supply, 4x LFF 3.5″ hard drives, and a full set of M.2 and PCIe slots, the Supermicro SYS-5019C-MR has features that other Intel Xeon E-2100 series servers cannot match.
Overall, this system performed admirably as well it should. We have a top of the line Intel Xeon E-2186G 6 core/ 12 thread CPU, up to four hot-swap 3.5″ hard drives, dual SATA DOMs for OS storage, dual M.2 NVMe drive slots, and a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. This is absolutely a high-end Intel Xeon E-2100 series platform with a maximum amount of flexibility.
There is room for further cost optimization. Not every Intel Xeon E-2100 series server will need all of these features. Supermicro makes a wide range of servers if that is your deployment scenario. At the same time, the Supermicro SYS-5019C-MR maximizes your investment in the platform by providing expandability along with high efficiency for better TCO.
