Supermicro Launches SuperBlade(TM) at Computex 2007

    Leading Density, Performance, and Efficiency

    TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 5 /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:  
SMCI), a worldwide leader in application optimized, high performance server
solutions, today announced the launch of its new SuperBlade(TM) product line
at Computex Taipei 2007, Hall 1, booths C901-C906. Supermicro's Server
Building Block Solutions(R) provide versatile configuration flexibility for
the enterprise, datacenter, high performance computing (HPC), and office
computing markets. The SuperBlade architecture supports current and next
generation processors at all speeds. The first Supermicro dual-processor (2P)
blade servers support both quad-core and dual-core Intel Xeon(TM) processors.

    Compute Density: The SuperBlade 7U enclosure holds ten 2P or 4P compute
blades in any combination and the architecture supports both quad-core and
dual-core CPUs across all speed grades.  Six SuperBlade enclosures fit into a
42U rack. This allows incredible scaling to 160 CPU cores per 7U enclosure or
960 CPU cores per rack. A 14-blade configuration is coming soon.

    Performance: In addition to outstanding CPU performance-per-watt
benefits, the SuperBlade features multiple integrated switch fabrics to
optimize I/O performance and connectivity.  High-speed, low-latency infiniband
switching (20Gb/s per port) is ideal for clustering applications while two
10-external-port GbE LAN switches provide optimum network connectivity.

    High Efficiency: Earth-friendly, high-efficiency (90%+) power supplies
and superior cooling significantly lower the total cost of ownership (TCO).
2,800W to 7,500W redundant (n+1) configurations provide high availability and

    Ease of Use: Up to 90% cable reduction and 50% rack-space savings greatly
simplify installation while saving cost and increasing reliability.  The
integrated chassis management module (CMM) with IPMI 2.0, KVM-over-IP, and
Virtual-Media-over-LAN provides remote access to all compute blades, switches,
power supplies, and cooling fans.

    "Our SuperBlade(TM) designs implement the very latest advancements in
server technology, making them not only perfect for enterprise applications,
but also ideal for HPC, data centers and office computing environments,"
asserts Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "Taking modular
computing to another level, our high-density blades can be optimized for a
wide range of applications with exceptional scalabililty."
    When equipped with Quad-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor 5300 series,
Supermicro's SuperBlade can provide its customers with unprecedented new
levels of performance and flexibility. "The breakthrough performance per watt
of the Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors helps enable Supermicro's innovative
SuperBlade server to deliver outstanding energy efficiency," said Diane
Bryant, Intel vice president and general manager of Intel's Server Platforms
    The Supermicro 2P blades support two/six SATA/SAS hot-plug hard drives.
Customers have the option to choose either 2.5" or 3.5" hard drives. Up to
640GB of memory is supported in a 7U enclosure using cost-effective 4GB DIMM
