Supermicro Shows New Twin Server Solutions at HPC Asia in Taiwan

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

     1U Twin, 2U Twin(2) (Twin Squared) and SuperBlade Solutions With

     Industry-Leading Performance-per-Watt and Performance-per-Dollar

    Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a leader in

application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, today showcased the

latest additions to its Twin Server family of products at HPC Asia 2009 in

Kaohsiung, Taiwan. These solutions are optimized for high-performance

computing (HPC) with industry-leading performance-per-watt (375 GFLOPS/kW*)

and performance-per-dollar. Supermicro is displaying its award-winning 1U

Twin(TM) SuperServer that has been optimized for next-generation Intel Xeon

processors, a 2U Twin(2) SuperServer with four hot-pluggable dual-processor

(DP) Xeon computing nodes in a 2U chassis, and a high-density SuperBlade(R)

system with 14 DP Xeon computing blades in a 7U chassis.

    "Building upon our innovative 1U Twin(TM) server technology, Supermicro's

high-density 2U Twin2 architecture achieves breakthrough x86 server

performance-per-watt (375 GFLOPS/kW*) and performance-per-dollar while

facilitating easy maintenance," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of

Supermicro. "With optimized 93%+* high-efficiency power supplies, newly

designed CPU cooling components and air channels, and the most updated

motherboard voltage regulator module (VRM) designs, Supermicro 2U Twin(2)

servers deliver the best performance-per-watt of any server solution

available in today's x86 server market."

    Supermicro was chosen for a number of prestigious HPC projects with

optimized 1U Twin and SuperBlade servers in 2008, including the CERN Large

Hadron Collider (LHC) Project in Geneva and the Hyperion Project at the

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). For the Hyperion Project, LLNL

teamed with Supermicro and nine other computing industry leaders to

accelerate the development of powerful next-generation Linux clusters by

developing an advanced technology cluster testbed.

    According to LLNL project leader, Mark Seager, "Hyperion represents a new

way of doing business. Collectively, we have built a system none of us could

have built individually. The project advances the state-of-the-art in a

cost-effective manner, benefiting both end users, such as the national labs,

and the computing industry, which can expand the market with proven,

easy-to-deploy large and small scale Linux clusters." Mr. Seager is attending

HPC Asia 2009 and will be a featured speaker during the keynote address at

11am on March 4th.
