Supermicro sets new STAC world record for low latency

Supermicro has announced world-record setting performance in the STAC-N1 and STAC-A2 benchmarks. Supermicro's 3rd generation Hyper-Speed platform, in tandem with the Intel Xeon Phi co-processor, delivered the record-setting results from an incredibly slim 1U server. The results indicate a propensity for superior performance in HFT (high Frequency Trading) applications, which crave low latency and high performance. Performance consistency is a big key to delivering predictable and sustainable QoS for HFT applications. The Hyper-Speed platform nailed key requirements with the lowest mean latency, max latency, and jitter. The slim 1U platforms can be deployed with up to 3 Intel Xeon Phi co-processors, expanding the use-case for even more demanding workloads.




The Hyper-Speed Ultra provides an impressive stable of connectivity with 10 2.5" drive bays, 8 12Gb/s SAS 3 ports, 2 SATA 6Gb/s ports, and a range of PCIe connections. The platform also accepts 2 NVMe drives via the AOC-URN2-i2XT. The system is powered by dual E5-2643 v3 Haswell processors. Supermicro has several high-performance systems available, and the pending release of their ULLtraDIMM-enabled platforms may increase performance beyond their own world record. 3

We recently had a chance to take a Supermicro development system for a spin in our SanDisk ULLtraDIMM DDR3 400GB SSD Enterprise Review. We also feature full evaluations of a number of Supermicro and competing platforms in the Motherboard and Server categories of our IT/Datacenter section.
