Supermicro Demonstrates 2U Twin GPU Computing Solution at SuperComputing 2009

High Availability 2U Twin Features Two Hot-Plug DP Server Nodes with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and Six Hot-swap HDDs Each

Super Micro Computer, Inc. a leader in
application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, is
demonstrating the company’s new 2U Twin servers equipped with two
NVIDIA Tesla C1060 GPUs at SuperComputing 2009, Oregon Convention
Center, booth 2355. A powerful solution for compute-intensive HPC
applications, this new architecture increases the maximum storage
capacity per 1U server node 50% by supporting six hot-swap 3.5" hard
disk drives. Each 2U Twin system features two hot-plug dual-processor
(DP) server nodes and redundant power for high availability.

further extend our leadership position in GPU computing system
architectures, the new 2U Twin GPU architecture features two hot-plug
nodes with x16 non-blocking native Gen2 PCI-Express connectivity and
redundant 1400-watt Gold Level (93%+ efficiency) power supplies for
maximum availability," said Phidias Chou, vice president of worldwide
sales, Supermicro. "With Supermicro’s efficient thermal design, these
highly parallel, dual-GPU systems are optimized for a wide range of
graphics and computationally intensive applications in fields like
medical imaging, oil and gas exploration, quantum chemistry, financial
simulation, genomics and astrophysics."

latest addition to Supermicro’s family of GPU-based systems, this
versatile 2U Twin (6026TT-HD Series SuperServer) introduces an
innovative architecture with hot-swappable devices to facilitate easy
maintenance and eliminate downtime, while also saving power and space
by sharing the same chassis and power supplies. Each computing node
features onboard QDR InfiniBand for 40 Gb/second high-bandwidth
connectivity and supports six hot-swap 3.5" SATA drives to deliver
unprecedented I/O performance.

are now being broadly deployed for computing applications in data
centers," said Andy Keane, general manager, Tesla business at NVIDIA.
"This innovative 2U design from Supermicro puts industry-best GPU
compute density in a highly scalable and manageable product

support educational research projects, Supermicro and NVIDIA are
offering special discounted pricing to accredited two- and four-year
educational institutions on all Supermicro systems equipped with NVIDIA
Tesla GPUs.
