    Supermicro 1U Twin(TM) and SuperBlade(TM) Servers with 20Gb InfiniBand,
    Superior Computational Power, Performance-per-Watt and Energy Efficiency
    

    DRESDEN, Germany, June 17 /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:  
SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high performance server and
workstation solutions, is showcasing its industry-leading HPC server solutions
at ISC '08 in Dresden, Germany (booths B25-B28). With superior computing
density and energy efficiency, Supermicro 1U Twin(TM) and SuperBlade(TM)
servers deliver exceptional performance and energy savings.

    "CRN recently ranked our SuperBlade(TM) number one in its latest blade
product review, recognizing that SuperBlade(TM) is easy to deploy, easy to
use, and offers the best price-to-performance and profit potential available,"
said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro.  "This excellent
endorsement came right after SuperBlade won the Best Green Data Center
Solution award at BladeSystems Insight 2008. Leading power efficiency (up to
93%(*)), compute density (up to 960 processing cores per 42U rack),
performance-per-watt (290GFLOPS/kW(*)), and 20Gb InfiniBand switch & HCA, make
our SuperBlade(TM) the perfect choice for HPC applications."
    As the industry's most optimized 1U HPC solutions, Supermicro 1U Twin(TM)
servers support up to 4 processor sockets via two DP nodes in 1U of rack
space. This 0.5U density (84 server nodes in a standard 42U rack) combined
with optional onboard InfiniBand or 10GbE makes these platforms an excellent
choice for high-performance computing (HPC) clusters where space, cost,
energy-efficiency and density are high priorities.  Supermicro now offers a
wide selection of 1U Twin(TM) solutions that includes the following server
models:

    
    1U Twin(TM) SuperServers:

    1021TM-INF+: DP nVidia MCP55V-Pro chipset-based, four 3.5" HD, 980W and
                  onboard IB
    
    Supermicro also offers an extensive selection of application-optimized
SuperBlade(TM) configurations.  Supermicro's enterprise-class SuperBlade(TM)
features both dual and quad-processor blades for performance, scalability and
flexibility.  For maximum computational performance and density,
SuperBlade(TM) supports up to 10 four-socket server blades (160 CPU cores) in
one 7U enclosure.  With 960 processing cores per 42U rack and Mellanox 4X DDR
InfiniBand, SuperBlade is one of the densest and fastest blade server
solutions in the industry. Additional cost savings associated with less IT
space required as well as easier maintenance and management make these
solutions a very attractive option for enterprise and high performance
computing applications.
    "We are working with Supermicro to deliver a large breadth of optimized
multi-core computing and storage servers," said Thad Omura, vice president of
product marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "With outstanding InfiniBand and
10 Gigabit Ethernet performance, I/O flexibility, and power efficiency,
Mellanox ConnectX Virtual Protocol Interconnect accelerated, Supermicro
servers and blade servers are ideal for high-performance computing and
enterprise applications."
