Supermicro BigTwin - The Industry's Highest Performing Twin Mult-Node System
The Supermicro BigTwin is the first and only 2U multi-node system supporting the highest performance processor, memory, storage, I/O and an incredible 30% better thermal capacity. The 5th generation of Supermicro's Twin architecture is fully optimized for today's diverse workloads and architected for further technology breakthroughs.
- No-compromise 5th Generation Twin architecture delivers the highest performance and efficiency in a 2U 4-node platform.
- The first and only multi-node system that supports the widest TDP range of CPUs (up to 205 watts), fully exploits all memory channels with 24 DIMMs per node and 24 AllFlash NVMe drives.
- 30% better thermal capacity in a compact 2U form factor enables configurations with the highest performance processor, memory, storage and I/O leveraging the Titanium level 96% efficient PowerStick power supplies (2200W/2600W)
- 100% more I/O capacity and added flexibility with more than 10 networking options including 1GbE, 10G, 25G, 100G, IB and industry leading SIOM modular interconnect.
- Each node can support current and next generation dual Intel Xeon processors with up to 3TB of memory, 24 drives of All-Flash NVMe, Hybrid NVMe/SATA/SAS, SSD and HDD, plus 2 m.2 NVMe/SATA per node.
The 5th Generation Twin Architecture
The Supermicro BigTwin is a breakthrough modular multi-node server system that eliminates traditional modular vs rack computing design trade-offs. BigTwin is the 5th generation in the patented Supermicro Twin Family with a multitude of innovations and engineering breakthroughs. The no-compromise architecture delivers the efficiency of multi-node density optimized systems with the full features and power of traditional 1U and 2U rack mount systems.

A No-Compromise Design
The key benefit of BigTwin is the no-compromise design. Historically multi-node systems traded off features and capacity for higher density. They were deployed for workloads that did not require the highest performance or the highest memory density on a single node. The new 2U BigTwin design is a breakthrough multi-node system that supports the highest performing CPUs, full 24 DIMMs of memory and up to 24 all-flash NVMe SSD drives.

All-Flash NVME and 24 DIMMs Per Node
Supermicro has been a leader in introducing NVMe support and advanced NVMe features in our product portfolio and BigTwin continues that tradition. BigTwin supports 24 hotswappable 2.5” U.2 NVMe drives, or mixed configurations with SAS3 and SATA3 drives (varies by different BigTwin models).
Leveraging Supermicro’s building block architecture BigTwin is a shared design with common components where most multi-node systems are one-off designs with limited leverage and integration to the rest of the product family creating sub-optimal service, sparing and training. The building block design also allows the system to be optimized to the specific requirements of the intended workload.
The 24 DIMMs can be used to deliver better performance and responsiveness for database and cloud infrastructure workloads, as well as providing the flexibility to customers looking to invest in lower capacity DIMMs for lowered dollar per GB solutions.
Maximum Memory Support Per Node on 3 Different 2U Twin Architecture Generations
Each BigTwin Server Supports up to
- 4 hot-swappable DP nodes in 2U
- 24 DIMMs per node
- 6 NVMe / SAS / SATA drives per node
- 1 SIOM card support per node
- 2 low-profile PCI-E x16 slots per node
- Redundant 2200W Titanium Level (96%) Power Supplies
A hyper-converged solution of 3 nodes plus a hot spare can be hosted by just one BigTwin server. Each node can support dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4/v3 processors with up to 3TB of memory, 2 NVMe SSD drives for caching and 4 SAS drives for datastore.
The Supermicro BigTwin is a breakthrough modular multi-node server system, an ultradense and energy efficient powerhouse that provides industry leading performance perwatt, per-dollar, and per-squarefoot.

SIOM: Supermicro Optimized Flexible Networking for 1GB/s to 100GB/s
Supermicro Super I/O Module (SIOM), common across both Rack and Modular platforms, delivers up to 50% I/O cost savings and freedom to select networking options from 1Gb/s to 100Gb/s. The SIOM enables a tighter system integration and leaves a total of two PCI-E 3.0 x16 LP slots for storage or networking add-on-cards on each node.
