Supermicro’s latest H13 server is powered by the AMD EPYC 4004 series processors introduced last month. Designated the Supermicro MicroCloud AS -3015MR-H10TNR, this server is designed to run cloud-native workloads for small and midsized businesses (SMBs), corporate departments and branch offices, and hosted IT service providers.

Intended workloads for the new server include web hosting, cloud gaming and content-delivery networks.

10 nodes, 3U form

This new Supermicro MicroCloud server supports up to 10 nodes in a 3U form factor. In addition, as many as 16 enclosures can be loaded into a single track, providing a total of 160 individual nodes.

Supermicro says customers using the new MicroCloud server can increase their computing density by 3.3X compared with industry-standard 1U rackmount servers at rack scale.

The new server also supports high-performance peripherals with either two PCIe 4.0 x8 add-on cards or one x16 full-height, full-width GPU accelerator. System memory maxes out at 192GB. And the unit gets air-cooled by five heavy-duty fans.

4004 for SMBs

The AMD EPYC 4004 series processors bring an entry-level family of CPUs to AMD’s EPYC line. They’re designed for use in entry-level servers used by organizations that typically don’t require either hosting on the public cloud or more powerful server processors.

The new AMD EPYC 4004 series is initially offered as eight SKUs, all designed for use in single-processor systems. They offer from 8 to 16 ‘Zen 4’ cores with up to 32 threads; 128MB of L3 cache; 2 DDR channels with a memory capacity of up to 192GB; and 28 lanes of PCIe 5 connectivity.

More than one

Supermicro is also using the new AMD EPYC 4004 series processors to power three other server lines.

That includes a 1U server designed for web hosting and SMB applications. A 2U server aimed specifically at companies in financial services. And towers intended for content creation, entry-level servers, workstations and even desktops.

All are designed to be high-density, efficient and affordable. Isn’t that what your SMB customers are looking for?
