Supermicro Introduces High-End 2.5" HDD Server Chassis

    8, 16 or 24 Drives in 1U/2U for Higher Density, Performance and

    SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 14 /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:  
SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high performance server solutions,
today unveiled new high-end 1U and 2U chassis optimized for 2.5" SAS and SATA
hard disk drives.  The SC113, SC213 and SC216 series chassis support 8, 16 or
24 hot-swappable 2.5" SAS/SATA hard disk drives respectively, which
effectively doubles the number of available drives per system.  All chassis
feature Supermicro's new advanced design high-efficiency (up to 90%(*)) power
    "These new optimized chassis solutions combine our high-efficiency power
supply technology with the energy-saving advantages of 2.5" disk drives;
customers can save as much as $400(xx) from Supermicro system efficiency over
the life of the product plus hundreds of dollars more from the additional 50%
power savings per drive," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro.
"Besides these power savings, the smaller size and corresponding lower latency
of the drives enables these chassis to deliver 130 to 150 percent greater
system performance in the same footprint."
    Supermicro's versatile SC113TQ series 1U chassis are optimized for
high-end, high performance server applications and support eight hot-swap 2.5"
SAS/SATA hard drive bays.  Advanced features include Universal I/O (UIO)
options that support up to three add-on cards and a choice of high-efficiency
700-watt or redundant 650-watt power supplies (710-watt DC 48V and AC 900-watt
also available).  Meanwhile, the short-depth (20") SC113MTQ-360CB featuring an
advanced 360W high-efficiency power supply is ideal for space constrained
servers and appliances.
    The SC213 and SC216 series 2U chassis support 16 and 24 hot-swap 2.5"
SAS/SATA hard drive bays, respectively.  These 2U chassis feature redundant
900-watt high-efficiency power supplies as well as iPass cables that minimize
the number of internal cables and improve system airflow, cooling and
reliability.  The low-profile versions support up to seven low-profile add-on
cards, while the UIO versions support four full-height and three low-profile
add-on cards.  Similar to the full-size 1U SC113 series, the SC213 and SC216
2U chassis support serverboards up to 13.68" x 13" across all CPU speeds.
Supermicro also offers optional 710-watt DC power supplies, making these
chassis an excellent choice for telecommunications applications.
