As the market demands more bandwidth and real-time online services, the challenge to support new technology such as 5G, IoT, and real-time applications has dramatically changed data center infrastructure requirements. Cloud IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) providers constantly optimize caching services to reduce the “Last Mile” latency at strategically located Edge Data Centers.
Real-time applications are prevalent in various markets, especially in advertising, media & entertainment, online gaming, e-commerce, mobile apps, healthcare, higher education, and government. Supermicro has partnered with Intel, Red Hat, and Redis to create a high-availability cache cluster in a compact 2U 4-Node system for easy deployment and scalability with hybrid cloud capabilities. With its award-winning multinode design, in-memory performance, low-latency NVMe storage, and redundant Titanium level power supplies, one Supermicro X12 BigTwin system can reliably deploy and support real-time applications with the power of Red Hat® OpenShift and Redis Enterprise.
The solution was inspired by the growing demand for cloud-native applications that stream static and dynamic content, including rich media. These applications must be optimized for viewing on mobile devices, AR/VR glasses, televisions, and web browsers on tablets and laptops of all shapes & sizes.
