Supermicro Exhibits Lineup of Power Saving Server and Storage Solutions

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 4 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing is exhibiting its latest energy efficient server and storage solutions this week at Computex, Taiwan. The showcase will focus on maximizing performance per watt, per square foot with innovations in power saving and cooling architectures, increased compute and storage density and the widest selection of application optimized server/storage solutions. Taiwan is also the location of Supermicro's new state-of-the-art integration and logistics facility which provides customers in Asia and worldwide a time-to-market advantage with accelerated fulfillment, support and service for high-volume demands.

"With energy costs and environmental impact rising worldwide, Data Centers and Cloud service providers deserve the best server and storage architectures that offer greatest savings in terms of performance per watt, per dollar, per square foot," saidCharles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "Our new power saving FatTwin delivers on all fronts with up to 16% better energy efficiency and $500 per node savings over the life of the system. Alongside our higher density 3U MicroCloud supporting twenty-four Intel Xeon hot-swap nodes and expanding range of energy efficient server and storage solutions, Supermicro is leading the industry with server-building block solutions that save energy, cost and in the long run, our one and only Mother Earth."

FatTwin headlines the show with the $500 savings per node system featuring superior architecture, high efficiency power supplies and an advanced thermal solution. The 4U, 4-node FatTwin, with each hot-swappable node supporting 8x 3.5" hot-swap HDDs per 1U, offers the industry's highest I/O performance and storage capacity. The 4U 4x hot-swap node HPC FatTwin features 3x GPU/MIC per node for an unrivaled 12x GPU/MIC in 4U. The new high-density, power-efficient 3U 8-node MicroCloud supporting high performance Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 family or new Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 V3 family will also be on display with a higher density 12x hot-swap node for the new processors available. Exhibits also include the new 4U high-density SuperStorage featuring 72x 3.5" external hot-swap HDDs, HPC optimized GPU/MIC server solutions, new high performance workstations, SuperBlade for the Enterprise and Embedded building block solutions. Over 50 single, dual and quad processor motherboards to match any specific application will also be on display. At the show, Supermicro will launch a new line of X10 servers, workstations and motherboards ( based on Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 V3 and 4th Generation Intel Core processor families, a new Intel microarchitecture with 22nm process technology. Additional product highlights include 10/1GbE networking solutions, Battery Backup Power (BBP) modules, SuperRack and Supermicro's System Management Software Suite for complete integrated solutions.

"With each new generation of processors Intel delivers new features and more performance while increasing the energy efficiency. Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 V3 based on new Haswell microarchitecture and 22nm manufacturing process embodies this commitment," said Lisa Graff, Vice President and General Manager, Datacenter Marketing Group at Intel. "Supermicro is one of the leading companies to take advantage of these new technologies and delivers innovative designs from X10 motherboards to their new 3U 12- and 8-node MicroCloud servers."
