Supermicro Launches 8-Way Enterprise Server and GPU SuperBlade® Systems at CeBIT
Super Micro Computer, a leader in application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, is releasing its 8-Way Enterprise Server solution with up to sixty-four Xeon processor cores in 5U, with the option for 80 processors on the way. The company has also released its SuperBlade® system that supports 20 GPUs in a single 7U blade enclosure.
All of these units, and more, were showcased by the company at the recent CeBIT 2011conference in Hannover, Germany. Let’s see what the company has to say for itself.
“Compared to other GPU-enabled blade solutions Supermicro’s GPU SuperBlade® provides more than double the number of GPUs per 1U of rack space, and our 8-Way SuperServer® is unique in the industry with support for eight next-generation ten-core Intel® Xeon® MP processors in a 5U form factor, up to 2TB of memory and 10 PCI-E 2.0 slots for high availability and virtualization support. Taken together with Supermicro’s broad line of 1U, 2U and 4U GPU supercomputing servers, we have established undisputed leadership in the new and rapidly evolving GPU computing business space,” said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. “These new products play well into our strategy to deliver the end-to-end IT hardware needs of data center, HPC and server farm customers. Our new Green Expansion in Asia-Pacific with Operations Center in Taiwan encompassing 1.6 million ft(2), and systems integration logistics center in Europe, represent our strong commitment to growth and will increasingly support a growing ecosystem of services partners. Our aim is to expand in this manner both vertically and horizontally to enable new customer opportunities and relationships for Supermicro.”
