You and your customers can now try out systems based on 4th Gen AMD EPYC 9004 Series processors at no cost with the Supermicro remote access program.
Called H13 JumpStart, the free program offers remote access to Supermicro’s top-end H13 systems.
Supermicro’s H13 systems are designed for today’s advanced data-center workloads. They feature 4th Gen AMD EPYC 9004 Series processors with up to 96 Zen 4 cores per socket, DDR5 memory, PCIe 5.0, and support for Compute Express Link (CXL) 1.1+ peripherals.
The H13 JumpStart program lets you and your customers validate, test and benchmark workloads on either of two Supermicro systems:
● Hyper AS-2025HS-TNR: Features dual AMD EPYC processors, 24 DIMMS, up to 3 accelerator cards, AIOM network adapter, and 12 hot-swap NVMe/SAS/SATA drive bays.
● CloudDC AS-2015CS-TNR: Features a single AMD processor, 12 DIMMS, 4 accelerator cards, dual AIOM network adapters, and a 240GB solid state drive.
Getting started with Supermicro’s H13 JumpStart program is simple. Just sign up with your name, email and a brief description of what you plan to do with the system.
Next, Supermicro will verify your information and your request. Assuming you qualify, you’ll receive a welcome email from Supermicro, and you’ll be scheduled to gain access to the JumpStart server.
Next, you’ll be given a unique username, password and URL to access your JumpStart account.
Run your test. Once you’re done, Supermicro will also ask you to complete a quick survey for your feedback on the program.
The JumpStart program does have a few limitations. One is the number of sessions you can have open at once. Currently, it’s limited to 1 VNC (virtual network computing), 1 SSH (secure shell), and 1 IPMI (intelligent platform management interface) session per user.
Also, the JumpStart test server is not directly addressable to the internet. However, the servers can reach out to the internet to get files.
You should test with JumpStart using anonymized data only. That’s because the Supermicro server’s security policies may differ from those of your organization.
But rest assured, once you’re done with your JumpStart demo, the server storage is manually erased, the BIOS and firmware are reflashed, and the OS is re-installed with new credentials. So your data and personal information are completely removed.
