Super Micro Computer, Inc.
(NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, will showcase its expansive lineup of SuperServer®, SuperStorage and networking solutions geared for high performance computing (HPC) at
Salt Lake City, Utah
. Supermicro is also showing its latest FatTwin platforms which provide the industry's highest density in storage of 8x 3.5" HDDs in 1U, and 12x highly parallel processing, double-width GPU/MIC cards in 4U. The FatTwin platform utilizes a shared resource power saving architecture with high-efficiency 8cm heavy-duty cooling fans, optimized airflow and Platinum Level (94%+) power supplies, which combine to deliver 16% higher energy efficiency than the competition. The company is making innovative strides across all areas of its platforms from free-air cooling designs able to operate at up to 47°C ambient temperatures to expanded deployment of cost-effective Battery Backup Power (BBP™) modules which can replace traditional UPS systems offering up to 99% energy efficiency for high-availability applications.
"Forces have aligned this year to deliver a successive wave of computing advances leading up to Supercomputing 2012," said
, President and CEO of Supermicro. "We have many cutting edge innovations launching simultaneously for HPC applications at SC12. From our expanding line of FatTwin SuperServers delivering 16% net power savings to energy-efficient free-air cooling support for new CPUs, GPUs, PCI-E based Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, SSD technology and wider deployment of high-speed 10GbE and low-latency IB-FDR network connectivity, Supermicro is raising the performance bar while reducing our impact on the planet across our entire product line. Our commitment to deliver the most advanced, energy efficient, green computing technologies to HPC communities is creating a new path to exascale supercomputing and truly transforms today's High Performance Computing landscape."
