HAMBURG, Germany, June 23 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a leader in application-optimized, high performance server, blade, and workstation solutions, is demonstrating its 2U Twin2 server with four hot-pluggable, dual-processor (DP) nodes and record x86 server performance-per-watt (375 GFLOPS/kW) this week at ISC '09 (booth 310). In addition to the 2U Twin2, Supermicro's award-winning 1U Twin and SuperBlade servers, SAS2 storage systems as well as a new 1U server supporting up to five add-on cards are also on display. Featuring the most efficient power supplies (93 percent+), cooling subsystems and motherboard designs in the industry, Supermicro solutions deliver the industry's best performance-per-watt, performance-per-dollar and performance-per-square-foot.
"Our 2U Twin2 SuperServers with 93 percent+ energy-saving technologies deliver extra performance-per-watt, TCO savings and computing density, especially when powered by the latest Intel Xeon Nehalem processors," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "Our solutions deliver the highest system-level efficiency in the industry. This increases the maximum computing power per rack and lowers the total cost of ownership, while also reducing energy consumption and protecting the environment."
"The new Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series provides a foundation for Supermicro to deliver its customers new levels of system intelligence, with the processor's ability to dynamically optimize itself to meet the performance and energy efficiency requirements of a given workload and customer environment," said Kirk Skaugen, vice president and general manager of Intel's Server Platforms Group. "Intel is thrilled with the collaboration and innovation we've seen from Supermicro around this new breakthrough in intelligent processing."
Supermicro's 2U Twin2 servers are fully compatible with existing and upcoming Supermicro Twin serverboards. The hard drives, power supplies and computing nodes are all hot-swappable to facilitate easy installation and minimize system downtime. For high availability, 2U Twin2 servers provide optional redundant power and three or four 3.5" drives per node for RAID 5 data protection.
For high-performance computing, Supermicro also offers a flexible range of SuperBlade configurations that support either 10 or 14 dual-Xeon 5500 (Nehalem) server blades in one 7U enclosure. Ideal for large-scale datacenters and HPC applications, SuperBlade is both VMware certified and Intel Cluster Ready (ICR) certified. Best for personal supercomputing, Supermicro's OfficeBlade operates at a quiet 50dB, making it suitable for office environments. Supermicro also offers the world's first 6Gbps SAS-2 blades available for its StorageBlade systems, which feature six SAS-2 drives per blade and optional RAID5.
Delivering 93 percent+ power efficiency, 80 PLUS Gold Level power supplies with PM-Bus come standard with nearly all new Supermicro systems, including its latest Nehalem SuperBlade servers. Supermicro provides the ultimate in system customization with its Universal I/O (UIO) interface that allows customers to choose from a host of I/O cards including SAS-2, 10Gb Ethernet, Fiber Channel or InfiniBand subsystems. For optimum performance-per-dollar and best remote management, Supermicro also offers onboard IPMI 2.0 with media and KVM-over-LAN support on its new platforms, as well as 10Gb Ethernet, cost-effective DDR and high-performance QDR onboard InfiniBand versions for its Twin serverboards.
