The company plans to showcase a wide variety of energy-efficient servers and other storage appliances at the Computex convention in Taiwan.
Supermicro announced plans to showcase its
computing solutions, which are optimized for large-scale IT deployments, at the
Computex conference in Taiwan this week. The companys range of X9 Server
Solutions, Serverboards, SuperBlade, SuperWorkstations and SuperStorage systems
sport Intel Xeon processors.
Supermicro will also demonstrate integrated
solutions in a SuperRack with their 10 Gigabit Ethernet top-of-rack network
switch and Server Management Software. The company will also showcase its
cloud-based MicroCloud platform and battery backup power (BBP) modules, which
are designed to reduce power consumption.
The company's next-generation Twin
architecture, called FatTwin, is scheduled to be shown in Computex to partners,
while the general public can expect to have access to the platform within the
next few weeks, a company release noted. Additional exhibits include the
recently announced SYS-7047GR-TRF SuperWorkstation with Nvidia Maximus
Certification and a variety of Advanced Micro Devices Opteron 6000 series
Also on display will be two of the companys
latest energy-efficient green server solutions designed to reduce air
conditioning costs by operating at extended temperature ranges. The servers will
be interconnected through Supermicro's new 52-port SSE-G2252P 1G, Layer 2
Top-of-Rack Ethernet switch, which features Energy Efficient Ethernet along
with Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, and the demo will be house in a 42U
SuperRack, managed via Supermicro Data Center Management software.
Supermicro plans to showcase high-performance
computing (HPC) appliances, as well, including its high-compute density
SuperBlade featuring the TwinBlade with two processors per node for up to 40
central processing units (CPUs), along with an early look at Super SBB High
Availability Storage server and the 2U SuperStorage server supporting 768GB of
At Computex, we highlight our X9 generation
solutions, the largest development endeavor in Supermicro's history,"
Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro said in a prepared statement.
"Our latest products deliver highly scalable computing and storage solutions
to our customers with 30 to 40 percent performance and efficiency gains across
the board when compared to prior-generation products. Our innovations in
free-air-cooling system designs that withstand extreme 47Â°C operating
conditions, high-efficiency (95 percent) digital switching power supplies and
battery backup power modules, data center server management software and
integration of the industry's latest processor technologies combine to drive
energy costs down and provide the fastest ROI without compromise in
