Cloud bills were starting to get very expensive for the CI pipeline. Power availability onsite prevented the use of man large footprint servers. The project then looked to EbizPC for expertise in creating a solution with Supermicro MicroCloud where the price point for compute and memory were similar to the costs of running a full rack of gear in 6U.
Solution was to create our CI pipeline around the MicroCloud offering from Supermicro. This allowed the CI to take up less rack space and power than the 2U solutions as well as being cheaper to implement than continuing to run the CI on cloud.
Less power usage, less rack space consumption and easier manageability due to having consolidated access to power, switch and KVM functions. The design was so useful we began to offer the solution as a reference design to external customers where they were successful in displacing recent white-box 2U servers in their design for a private cloud. .
