Supermicro Showcases OfficeBlade(TM), DatacenterBlade(TM) Server and Whisper-Quiet 28dB Workstation at CeBIT 2008

    Green Solutions with Industry-Leading Energy Efficiency

    SAN JOSE, Calif., March 4 /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:  
SMCI), a leader in application optimized, high-performance server and
workstation solutions, is showcasing its latest SuperBlade(TM) server and
high-performance whisper-quiet (28dB(*)) workstation technologies at CeBIT 2008
in Hannover, Germany, March 4-9 in hall 21, stand B46, booth A1. With 93%(*)
peak power supply efficiency, Supermicro's SuperBlade(TM) is the industry's
most energy-efficient and earth-friendly family of blade servers. In addition,
the SuperWorkstation 7045A-C3, based on the new Intel(R) 5100 (San Clemente)
chipset, is the quietest high-performance workstation in its class.
    "We are showcasing over 40 of our latest server and workstation
motherboards plus more than 20 server and workstation systems including our
whisper-quiet (28dB) workstations. For the ultimate in energy efficiency (93%)
and server technologies, we are showcasing two new SuperBlade(TM) server
systems -- OfficeBlade(TM), optimized for office environments (< 50dB(*)), and
DatacenterBlade(TM), optimized for data centers and HPC with support for 14
blades in a 7U enclosure," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of
Supermicro.  "Leading the way in green technology, our earth-friendly servers
and workstations feature innovative power supply and thermal subsystem designs
to achieve exceptional system-level energy efficiency. Our customers benefit
with substantial energy savings and lower TCO."
    OfficeBlade(TM) (SBE-710Q-R42) is ideal for SMB (small-medium businesses)
as well as personal supercomputing applications. With acoustically optimized
thermal and cooling technologies it achieves <50dB with 10 DP server blades
and features 100-240VAC, ultra high-efficiency (93%), N+1 redundant power
    DatacenterBlade(TM) (SBE-714D-R42) is perfect for data center and HPC
applications with performance & density optimization to achieve 672 processing
cores and 4TB DDR2 memory per 42U standard rack. This powerful SuperBlade(TM)
features 100-240VAC, ultra high-efficiency (93%), N+1 redundant power
supplies, along with industry-leading density, performance/watt and
    Supermicro's latest SuperWorkstations feature innovative new
whisper-quiet complete system designs, implementing acoustically optimized
thermal technology to achieve 28dB, which is quieter than the sound level of a
whisper-quiet library environment. These systems provide an impressive array
of important customer benefits including a 30%(*) boost in performance and
sharply increased energy savings with new high-efficiency power supplies
featuring patented redundant cooling and energy-saving memory systems.
