8-Way 5U Server and 20-GPU SuperBlade® with Two QDR IB Switches in 7U
HANNOVER, Germany, March 1, 2011 - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, is releasing its Eight-Way Enterprise Server solution with up to sixty-four Xeon processor cores in 5U (80 cores coming soon), and its SuperBlade® system that supports 20 GPUs in a single 7U blade enclosure, at CeBIT 2011 in Hannover, Germany (Hall 2, Stand F38). Other offerings showcased by Supermicro include the 2U Twin3 (2U Twin Cubed) with eight low-power nodes in 2U, a 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch for top-of-rack or standalone use, the SuperServer 6046T-TUF 4U Embedded / IPC Server, new SC732 and redundant power SC813MTQ chassis, next generation UP servers, and software and services partnerships.
"Compared to other GPU-enabled blade solutions Supermicro's GPU SuperBlade® provides more than double the number of GPUs per 1U of rack space, and our eight-way SuperServer® is unique in the industry with support for eight next-generation ten-core Intel® Xeon® MP processors in a 5U form factor, up to 2TB of memory and 10 PCI-E 2.0 slots for high availability and virtualization support. Taken together with Supermicro's broad line of 1U, 2U and 4U GPU supercomputing servers, we have established undisputed leadership in the new and rapidly evolving GPU computing business space," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "These new products play well into our strategy to deliver the end-to-end IT hardware needs of data center, HPC and server farm customers. Our new Green Expansion in Asia-Pacific with Operations Center in Taiwan encompassing 1.6 million ft2, and systems integration logistics center in Europe, represent our strong commitment to growth and will increasingly support a growing ecosystem of services partners. Our aim is to expand in this manner both vertically and horizontally to enable new customer opportunities and relationships for Supermicro."
The Supermicro SuperServer® 5086B-TRF next-generation 8-way SuperServer® provides up to 2TB of DDR3 memory in 64 DIMMs, 10 PCI-E 2.0 expansion slots, Gold / Platinum Level power supplies, and up to 24 2.5" hard drives into 5U to deliver exceptional density. In addition users can integrate up to 4 GPUs to take advantage of the exceptionally large memory footprint to address heretofore unmanageable large scale computing projects.
