New 4-Way SuperBlade(TM) Enables 960 Processor Cores per 42U Rack
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 6 /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:
SMCI), a leader in application optimized high performance server solutions,
today introduced a new addition to the SuperBlade(TM) family. With 16 cores
and 64GB of DDR2 memory, the SuperBlade SBA-7141M-T enables 160 processor
cores and 640GB of DDR2 memory in ten blades per 7U enclosure, which also
supports up to four networking switches. This industry-leading density makes
the SuperBlade, optimized for Quad-Core AMD Opteron(TM) 8300 Series
processors, not only the best platform for performance, energy efficiency and
low total cost of ownership (TCO), but also an ideal virtualization platform
to consolidate hundreds of applications into a small package.
"By expanding the SuperBlade product line with these high-density
quad-processor blades, we empower Supermicro customers to service the needs of
enterprise virtualization with our centralized management," said Alex Hsu,
chief sales and marketing officer of Supermicro. "These SuperBlade servers
deliver outstanding performance and energy efficiency, and help reduce TCO and
preserve our environment for future generations."
"By combining the strength of AMD Virtualization(TM) technology with
Supermicro's server design expertise, these 4P quad-core solutions indeed
exemplify truly optimal server virtualization," said Randy Allen, corporate
vice president and general manager, Server/Workstation Division, AMD (NYSE:
AMD). "AMD's industry-defining native quad-core technology and Direct Connect
Architecture enable superior overall system performance and efficiency, making
Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors the smarter choice to address the
compute-intensive demands of today's datacenter."
The SuperBlade SBA-7141M-T supports both Quad-Core AMD Opteron 8300
Series and Dual-Core AMD Opteron 8200 Series processors at all speeds. With
AMD's new Dual Dynamic Power Management technology, SuperBlade SBA-7141M-T
delivers breakthrough performance-per-watt.
In addition to the incredible density of up to 960 processor cores and
3.84TB of memory per 42U rack, the SuperBlade also features high-efficiency
(up to 93%) power supplies and a flexible selection of hot-swap and redundant
modules. For networking, the choices include Gigabit Ethernet switch modules,
Gibabit Ethernet pass-thru modules and 4x DDR (20Gbps) InfiniBand switch
modules. The SuperBlade also features a high bandwidth backplane with no
active components for maximum reliability. For the optimal redundant power
configuration, customers can select up to four high-efficiency (90%+)
1400-watt, 2000-watt or 2500-watt power supply modules. While one chassis
management module (CMM) comes standard, the SuperBlade also supports a second
CMM for redundancy.
