Supermicro Showcases Enterprise, Datacenter Solutions at CeBIT 2017

March 20, 2017

HANNOVER, Germany, March 20, 2017 — Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a leader in compute, storage and networking technologies including green computing, announces participation in the annual CeBIT exhibition being held in Hannover, Germany from March 20 to 24. Supermicro will showcase enterprise and data center solutions in Booth B-66.

This year Supermicro’s showcased products include the new SuperBlade and BigTwin high density computing solutions. The 8U SuperBlade is the newest in Supermicro’s blade systems. The new 8U SuperBlade supports both current and next generation Intel Xeon processor-based blade servers with the fastest 100G EDR InfiniBand and Omni-Path switches for mission critical, enterprise and data center applications. It also leverages the same Ethernet switches, chassis management modules, and software as the successful MicroBlade for improved reliability, serviceability, and affordability. It maximizes the performance and power efficiency with DP and MP processors in half-height and full-height blades, respectively. The new smaller form factor 4U SuperBlade maximizes density and power efficiency while enabling up to 140 dual-processor servers or 280 single-processor servers per 42U rack.

The Supermicro BigTwin is a breakthrough multi-node server system with a multitude of innovations and industry firsts. BigTwin supports maximum system performance and efficiency by delivering 30% better thermal capacity in a compact 2U form-factor enabling solutions with the highest performance processor, memory, storage and I/O. Continuing Supermicro’s NVMe leadership, the BigTwin is the first All-Flash NVMe multi-node system. BigTwin doubles the I/O capacity with three PCI-e 3.0 x16 slots and provides added flexibility with more than 10 networking options including 1GbE, 10G, 25G, 100G Ethernet and InfiniBand with its industry leading SIOM modular interconnect.

Supermicro will also be featuring the newest edition to the company’s NVMe Flash portfolio supporting Intel’s new Optane SSDs.  Supermicro’s industry leading portfolio of 60+ NVMe Flash based solutions with Intel Optane SSDs can deliver up to 11 million Write IOPs and 30TB of high performance Optane storage in a 1U form factor.

“We look forward to our participation on CeBIT each year as an opportunity to showcase our industry leading NVMe storage and enterprise computing solutions,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro.  “Both our BigTwin and SuperBlade systems are achieving market traction in high-density, energy-conscious data centers.”

Supermicro offers the industry’s most extensive selection of motherboards, servers and storage to support a wide range of markets including DS, DSS, Industrial and Machine Automation, Retail, Transport, Communication and Networking (Security), as well as Warm and Cold Storage.
