LAS VEGAS, Nev., April 8 — Super Micro Computer, Inc., a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing is exhibiting its latest SuperWorkstation, SuperServer and SuperStorage platforms at the NAB Show this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. With computing and data management demands exploding behind the scenes of broadcast media, content creation, management and distribution are key areas where Supermicro's solutions have a major impact. At the show, Supermicro will showcase a variety of high performance computing and storage solutions addressing end-to-end processes within the digital production workflow. The centerpiece of the show is Supermicro's new high capacity Double-Sided Storage server (SSG-6047R-E1R72L) featuring 72x 3.5" hot-swappable HDDs, supporting up to 288TB in 4U. With 10GB/sec throughput, this mass storage server has the enormous capacity and bandwidth to support extreme levels of concurrent streaming and other high storage bandwidth dependent applications. Show highlights also include Supermicro's flexible, high performance, power saving 4U FatTwin architecture in a 4-node 8x 3.5" hot-swap HDD per U configuration for distribution along with a range of high performance GPU workstations, servers and a 12x GPU FatTwin VDI configuration for content development. Specialized embedded solutions for distribution and digital signage applications will also be on display at the show.
"Supermicro focuses on maximizing performance, density and power savings across our computing and storage product lines," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "For example, our new 72 HDD Double-Sided Storage server is unrivaled in density and the throughput performance of 10GB/sec enabling broadcasters to deliver content using the latest high resolution formats. Our FatTwin platform provides the highest computing and efficiency in 4U and with its optimized cooling and power saving architecture can save IT operations up to $500 per node over 4 years. When scaled out to serve HD and UHD digital content over thousands of channels, performance, density and power savings become crucial business considerations for broadcast IT operations."
