Our Supermicro SYS-5019C-MR review is a 1U Intel Xeon E-2100 series powerhouse that allows you to maximize your investment in the platform
At Xilinx XDF we saw a Supermicro Power9 based server behind the IBM LC922 2U dual IBM Power9 solution. This demo system paired the Supermicro P9DSU-C platform with a Xilinx Alveo FPGA card to show off what the two can accomplish together.
We thoroughly evaluate the claims made by Bloomberg in their Supermicro China tampering stories and found them likely impossible or implausible at best. We take stock of sources and discuss the next steps calling for formal SEC and shareholder investigations of Bloomberg.
Today Bloomberg cited security researcher Yossi Appleboum, CEO of Sepio Systems, as supporting Supermicro hardware supply chain issues. We interviewed Mr. Appleboum and he is angry with how Bloomberg is presenting his research saying it impacts many more vendors and impacts networking equipment as well
We take a look at the hardware behind the AMD EPYC and Xilinx Alveo demo system. The server is a BOXX GX8-M, designed to harness up to 1.6Tbps of network bandwidth instead of focusing on PCIe bandwidth.
We look at some of the technical and somewhat strange aspects to the Bloomberg report on Chinese insertion of hacking chips on some Supermicro motherboards.
We investigate a recent Supermicro SYS-6049GP-TRT announcement where the company claims support for up to 20x NVIDIA Tesla T4 inferencing GPUs. We found that the image provided seems to depict the correct system, however with 16x NVIDIA Tesla V100 150W GPUs
Our Supermicro X11SCA-F review finds an adept workstation and server crossover motherboard that is equally adept at both roles. We can see this platform running in branch offices either with Intel Xeon E-2100 or Intel Core i3-8300 CPUs and making a great workstation and server platform.
Recently eBay announced that it builds its own servers and is pushing to open source parts of its next-generation stack servicing one of the world's largest applications. We share our quick analysis of the announcement.
