Supermicro Unveils Over 50 Application-optimized Upcoming Xeon Platforms and 2U

Twin2 (Twin Squared) Servers at CeBIT 2009

HANNOVER,  Mar. 3 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

          Breakthrough Performance-per-Watt (375 GFLOPS/kW) and Best

        Performance-per-Dollar Server, Blade and Workstation Platforms

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

application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, today unveiled its

comprehensive new line of server and workstation solutions optimized for

upcoming Intel(R) Xeon(R) processors along with its new 2U Twin2 (Twin

Squared) family of servers at CeBIT 2009 in Hannover, Germany, March 3-8,

Hall 21, Stand C72. Supermicro is putting its server technology leadership on

full display with a wide selection of SuperServer demos including its

innovative 2U Twin2 server with four hot-pluggable dual-processor (DP) nodes

as well as SuperBlade(R) and SuperWorkstation systems optimized with 93%+*

high-efficiency power supplies, LV DDR3 memory, SAS 2.0 and more features.


    "We are showcasing over 50 of our latest motherboards plus over 20

server, workstation and blade systems including an extensive selection of new

platforms optimized for Intel's upcoming Xeon processors codenamed Nehalem,"

said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "Building upon our

successful 1U Twin(TM) technology, our innovative 2U Twin2 system

architecture achieves breakthrough x86 server performance-per-watt (375

GFLOPS/kW*, up to 25% net gain over other top tiers' 1U servers) to further

satisfy the ever-increasing efficiency, density and low-TCO demands of

today's high performance computing (HPC) clusters and datacenters."

    2U Twin2 servers are compatible with existing and upcoming Supermicro

twin boards. They feature hot-swappable hard drives, power supplies and even

computing nodes to facilitate easy installation and maintenance. For high

availability, 2U Twin2 servers provide optional redundant power and three

3.5" hard drives per node for RAID 5 data protection.

    Based on the company's application-optimized Server Building Block

Solutions(R) strategy, Supermicro is offering customers the industry's

broadest selection of products based on Intel's upcoming chipset codenamed

Tylersburg. For maximum performance-per-watt, these platforms support both

1.5-volt and 1.35-volt DDR3 memory with up to 144GB in 18 DIMM slots. Several

new high-performance Supermicro platforms feature dual IOH-36D controller

chips to support up to 72 PCI-Express 2.0 links for unprecedented I/O

capacity and performance (like 4 x16 PCI-E Gen2 slots for high-end Nvidia/ATI

GPU applications) with optional SAS 2.0 for a 6 Gb/s per port transfer rate.

    Supermicro provides the ultimate in storage and networking flexibility

with its Universal I/O (UIO) interface that allows customers to choose from a

host of UIO cards for SAS 2.0, 10Gb Ethernet, FC 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 many of

these new platforms, as well as both cost-effective DDR and high-performance

QDR onboard InfiniBand versions for its award-winning 1U Twin(TM)/2U Twin2
