Which media server should you use when you absolutely can’t lose data?


Are your customers looking for a top-performing media server? And are you looking for a surprisingly entertaining video review of the best one? You’ll find both in the latest Linus Tech Tip video. This episode, sponsored by Supermicro, is entitled “This Server CANNOT Lose Data.” The primary focus: high reliability. And that reliability is delivered courtesy of a sophisticated server/storage cluster featuring Supermicro GrandTwin A+ multinode servers. The GrandTwin’s nodes can handle up to 3TB of DDR5 ECC server memory. They also have dual M.2 slots for boot drives and 6 PCIe Gen 5 x16 slots for networking, graphics and other expansion cards. GrandTwin’s high-availability design extends all the way down to its dual power supplies. To ensure the system always has a reliable flow of power to all its vital components, Supermicro added two redundant 2200-watt titanium-level PSUs. Handling the heat generated by this monster machine is paramount. The GrandTwin takes care of all that hot air via 4 high-speed fans. Your customers may have to contend with thousands of hours of high-resolution videos. Or they may develop AI-enabled applications, provide cloud gaming, or host mission-critical web applications. Whatever the use case, they can benefit from high-reliability servers designed with built-in redundancies. That means helping your customers deploy Supermicro GrandTwin A+ servers powered by AMD EPYC processors.
