“The fourth quarter was a record high for Supermicro with growth at 16.8% higher year over year and which again outpaced the industry's growth rate. Virtually all market segments delivered strong growth from our rackmount servers and especially our FatTwin line of servers to our storage, blade, GPU, MicroCloud and switches,” said Charles Liang, CEO and Chairman. “We start a new fiscal year with the strongest product lines in our history and with our global operations ready for growth. We believe that with this strong foundation we will continue our growth trend in fiscal 2014.”
