Your customers already have plenty of data. What they need now are insights.

Data just sits there, taking up costly storage and real estate. But actionable insights can help your customers strengthen their overall business, improve their business processes, and create new products and services.

Increasingly, these insights are based on data captured at the edge. For example, a retailer might collect customer and sales data using the point-of-sale terminals in its stores.

Supermicro is here to help. Its edge systems, including the latest WIO and short-depth servers powered by AMD processors, have been designed to collect data at the business edge.

These servers are powered by AMD’s EPYC 8004 Series processors. Introduced in September, these CPUs extend the company’s ‘Zen4c’ architecture into lower-core-count processors designed for edge servers and form factors.

GrandTwin too

For more insights, tell your customers to check out Supermicro’s GrandTwin servers. They’re powered by AMD EPYC 9004 processors and can run Cloudera Data Flow (CDF), a scalable, real-time streaming analytics platform.

The Supermicro GrandTwin systems provide a multi-node rackmount platform for cloud data centers. They come in 2U with 4 nodes for optimal deployment.

These systems offer AMD’s 4th Gen EPYC 9004 Series of general-purpose processors, which support DDR-5 4800 memory and PCI Express Gen 5 I/O.

Distributed yet united

If you’re unfamiliar with Cloudera, the company’s approach is based on a simple idea: single clouds are passé. Instead, Cloudera supports a hybrid data platform, one that can be used with any cloud, any analytics and any data.

The company’s idea is that data-management components should be physically distributed, but treated as a cohesive whole with AI and automation.

Cloudera’s CDF solution ingests, curates and analyzes data for key insights and immediate actionable information. That can include issues or defects that need remediating. And AI and machine learning systems can use the data to suggest real-time improvements.

More specifically, CDF delivers flow management, edge management, streams processing, streams management, and streaming analytics.

The upshot: Your customers need actionable insights, not more data. And to get those insights, they can check out the powerful combination of Supermicro servers, AMD processors and Cloudera solutions.
