"We are excited to see Supermicro give qualified customers full use of advanced Supermicro servers using the 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors to test and validate their innovative applications."
NDA Validated customers can soon receive remote access to X13-based Supermicro systems to develop, validate, tune and benchmark their advanced workloads before the general release of the products. This early access period will enable performance and efficiency-minded datacenters a first-mover advantage to deploy their pre-validated solutions at or around the public release of the products.
The JumpStart Program will support Supermicro’s extensive portfolio of upcoming X13 Systems. The Supermicro Hyper 1U and 2U rackmount servers will be initially available for validation with additional models of rackmount, multi-node twin, SuperBlade®, and storage systems added over time and based on customer demand. The program will be hosted at Supermicro’s Rack Plug and Play Solution Center, providing users access to Supermicro’s leading datacenter engineering and architecture team to help customers rapidly go from testing and validation to full total IT solution deployment
Accessing the program is easy and fast. Using Supermicro’s JumpStart portal, interested Supermicro customers can register to qualify. Soon after, they will be given a bare metal instance with a choice of operating systems and flexible scheduling.
Product Portfolio for Supermicro X13 Jumpstart
Initially, Supermicro will be making available several of the Hyper rack-mounted systems that will have the capability to run next-generation workloads. In addition, other systems, including Multi-node and Blades, could be added to the program.
