Today, Supermicro launched five new X11 appliances that it says were designed exclusively for Hyperscale Datacenters. This launch comes hot on the heels of their announcement of a pole-mounted server earlier this month. The company (Super Micro Computer Incorporated, SMCI) was founded in 1993 and is one of the fastest-growing IT companies in the world. Supermicro provides a wide range of products and servers, most focused around cloud software and hardware.

The five Hyperscale-focused appliances are split as evenly as possible between two different form factors. Supermicro is introducing two 1U appliances and three larger 2U appliances. All of these new rack units have sockets for two second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and an impressive sixteen slots for memory.

Networking comes in the form of dual 25G Ethernet ports. Going with a high-bandwidth ethernet option like 25G underlines that these devices are intended to be used in Hyperscale datacenters. The units also boast an AIOM (advanced I/O module) slot and OpenBMC support. The AIOM slot can support OCP V3.0 SFF cards.
