Super Micro Computer, Inc., a leader in application-optimized server solutions, is
demonstrating its new Twin architecture server solutions optimized for cloud
computing and HPC at IDF Beijing, China National
Convention Center, booth G8. In addition, Supermicro will present an IDF gold
sponsor session entitled, "Twin Architecture and Cloud Computing," today at
1pm in room 306A.
"Featuring our Platinum Level (94%+ efficiency) power supplies, advanced
cooling subsystems and serverboard designs, these latest SuperServers deliver
the best performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "With
Supermicro’s innovative architecture and resource sharing, our TwinBlade™
doubles the number of dual-processor (DP) compute nodes to 20 per 7U, for an
incredibly dense and cost-effective 0.35U per node. This breakthrough blade
design leverages our successful Twin architecture to provide optimal
performance, density and value."
Based on the SBI-7226T-T2 blade, Supermicro’s TwinBlade™ server supports up
to 20 dual-socket server blades per 7U enclosure. Combined with dual 40Gb/s
InfiniBand, FCoE or 10GbE switches and dual 1/10GbE switches in one 7U
enclosure, the TwinBlade™ provides the highest performing I/O throughput and
scalability in the industry and is a superb solution for high-performance
computing (HPC), datacenter, enterprise and cloud computing environments,
especially when powered by the new generation six-core or eight-core Xeon
Supermicro’s new DP and UP server and workstation systems support the entire
range of new six-core Intel® Xeon® Processor 5600/3600 Series, including the
highest performance 130-watt SKUs. Consistent with the company’s commitment to
green computing, these new solutions support low-voltage 1.35V DDR3 memory
modules as well as standard 1.5V modules.
Supermicro’s own 94%+ Supermicro Platinum-level power supplies with PM-Bus
come standard on most of these new systems. In addition, Supermicro provides
the ultimate in storage and networking flexibility with its Universal I/O (UIO)
interface, which allows customers to choose from a host of I/O cards including
SAS 2.0, 10 Gb Ethernet, Fiber Channel and QDR/DDR InfiniBand subsystems.
Supermicro’s industry-leading serverboards deliver optimum
performance-per-dollar and robust remote management. These new platforms offer
onboard IPMI 2.0 with media and KVM-over-LAN support as well as 10Gb Ethernet,
high-performance 40Gb/s QDR and cost-effective DDR onboard InfiniBand versions
for many of its serverboards, including the X8DTT series for its popular
multi-node 1U Twin™, 2U Twin and 2U Twin2 servers.
