Supermicro® Launches FatTwin™ Architecture

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, launches the FatTwin™, a high-capacity powerful new server platform based on Supermicro's highly successful Twin Architecture. This landmark product offers a new, flexible, high-density computing solution for Data Center, Cloud Computing, Enterprise IT, Big Data and HPC applications delivering the highest performance with the most energy efficient technologies and cooling designs available on the market.


"Energy consumption is one of the greatest challenges facing Data Centers as computing demands increase exponentially around the world," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "Supermicro is addressing this growing challenge by developing new generation server technologies such as FatTwin which maximizes performance with support of up to 135W processors while eliminating costly air-conditioning and cooling methods. The innovation of FatTwin is in its high-density, airflow optimized design that integrates up to eight dual-processor nodes in a standard 4U rackmount server and operates at temperatures up to 47 degrees C. Our FatTwin platform will set new industry standards for performance and efficiency while offering lowered TCO and an accelerated return on investment."

Supermicro's patented Twin architecture revolutionizes server computing by integrating independent systems side-by-side in a single chassis, multiplying compute density while reducing solution costs through shared resources such as the chassis, fans, power supplies, cabling and rack mount hardware. This innovative architecture incorporates airflow optimized designs, air-shrouds and streamlined cabling which reduces fan speeds and power consumption resulting in improved power utilization and overall energy efficiency. The 4U FatTwin is the latest addition to the evolving Twin architecture line and is available in 8/4/2 DP node configurations with high-capacity storage (8 hot-swap 3.5" HDDs per 1U or 6 hot-swap 2.5" HDDs per 1/2U). FatTwin achieves the highest performance-per-watt/per-dollar with Supermicro's X9 DP (dual-processor) serverboards and redundant Platinum Level high-efficiency (95%+) digital switching power supplies. With free-air cooling designs and an extreme operational temperature range (0 degrees C - 47 degrees C) that does not require air conditioning, the FatTwin helps Data Centers achieve the best power usage effectiveness (PUE < 1.1).
