Supermicro Demos Green Leadership at Computex 2008

    Award-Winning SuperBlade(TM) and 1U Twin(TM) Product Lines, Future Server
    Technology, 2.5" SAS/SATA and Universal I/O (UIO) Solutions

    TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 2 /CNW/ -- COMPUTEX -- Super Micro Computer, Inc.
(Nasdaq:   SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high performance server and
workstation solutions, is showcasing its earth-friendly servers, including the
industry's greenest blade solutions, at Computex 2008 in Taipei (booths
M619-M726).  In addition to four different live demos of award-winning
SuperBlade(TM) systems, Supermicro is highlighting its award-winning 1U
Twin(TM) servers, 2.5-inch SAS/SATA and UIO solutions based on the Intel(R)
5100 (San Clemente) and 5400 (Seaburg) chipsets.  A preview of future
Supermicro server technology solutions will also be on display.
    "With unprecedented performance-per-watt (290 GFLOPS/kW(*)), which is 6 to
30% better than any other solution available in the world, and superior power
efficiency (93%(*)), our SuperBlade(TM) won the Best Green Data Center Solution
award at BladeSystems Insight 2008," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of
Supermicro.  "Furthermore, because our SuperBlade(TM) is easy to deploy, easy
to use, and offers the best price-to-performance and profit potential
available, CRN recently ranked our SuperBlade(TM) number one in its latest
blade product review.  At Computex, we are showing four SuperBlade(TM) demos
along with our award-winning family of 1U Twin(TM) servers, 2.5-inch SAS/SATA
solutions, and our flexible UIO servers.  As the chair of the Climate Savers
Computing Initiative (CSCI) APAC region, Supermicro is strongly committed to
the CSCI mission to reduce worldwide computer power consumption 50%, for up to
$5.4 billion in energy-savings, by 2010."
    Supermicro offers an extensive selection of application-optimized
SuperBlade(TM) configurations.  For instance, the quiet (50dB) OfficeBlade(TM)
is ideal for office environments.  The DatacenterBlade(TM) packs 14 highly
energy-efficient blades into one 7U enclosure with industry-leading
performance/watt (290 GFLOPS/kW), making it perfect for datacenter and HPC
applications.  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.  Supermicro
also offers storage-optimized SuperBlade(TM) configurations with up to 10
two-socket server blades and 60 hot-plug SAS/SATA hard disk drives in a single
7U enclosure.
    Considered the best 1U data center solution, Supermicro's award-winning
1U Twin(TM) SuperServers feature two DP server nodes in a single chassis and a
high-efficiency power supply (90%+(*)).  This 0.5U density (84 server nodes in a
standard 42U rack) makes these platforms an excellent choice for
high-performance computing (HPC) clusters, server farms and other data centers
where space, cost, energy-efficiency and density are high priorities.
    For enterprise and energy-conscious customers that recognize the
cost-saving and performance advantages of migrating to 2.5" hard drives,
Supermicro offers high-end 1U and 2U SuperServers optimized for 2.5" SAS hard
disk drives.  The high-density SuperServer 1025C-UR and SuperServer 1025W-UR
both support eight hot-swappable 2.5" SAS hard disk drives and feature
Supermicro's flexible Universal I/O (UIO) architecture to support up to three
add-on cards in a standard 1U form factor.  With 16 hot-swap 2.5" SAS drive
trays, Supermicro's 2U SuperServer 2025W-UR+ supports up to 128GB FBD memory
including 1.5V low-voltage memory support.
    "The latest Intel and processor technology provides the foundation that
enables Supermicro to provide industry-leading choices for enterprise data
center environments and high-performance computing applications," said Kirk
Skaugen, vice president, Intel Digital Enterprise Group.  "Recognizing the
value of the Intel Cluster Ready program for products like their
SuperBlade(TM) and 1U Twin(TM) servers, many Supermicro data center and HPC
products are now part of this program."
