SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 2 /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:
SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high performance server solutions,
today announced that its SuperServer 6015W-NTR earned the top honor from GCN
(Government Computer News) over competitive product offerings from HP, Dell
and Fujitsu based on GCN Lab test results. Supermicro's SuperServer 6015W-NTR
was the only server to earn straight A's and proved superior to the others on
both performance and value.
"GCN has recognized our SuperServer 6015W-NTR as the best Web server
solution, because it delivers superior performance, is easy to deploy and use,
and offers the best value available," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of
Supermicro. "Our advanced server designs continue to win more and more
recognition and awards. Previously, we earned the Best Server Innovation
award from Intel for our 1U Twin(TM) product which features two dual-processor
(DP) nodes in a standard 1U form factor, and earlier this year, our
SuperBlade(R) earned both a CRN Test Center Recommended award and later the #1
ranking in a head-to-head CRN Tech blade review over IBM and Dell."
"The Supermicro SuperServer SYS-6015W-NTRB is a powerful 1U
rack-mountable server that comes at a great price. Its overall performance
and features make this a great value." GCN concluded that, "With its great
Web-loading performance, easily accessible peripheral expansion slots, four
drive bays and low price, the SuperServer earns our Reviewer's Choice award."
Powered by Supermicro's X7DWU serverboard, the 6015W-NTR supports two
quad-core Intel Xeon processors with a bus speed up to 1600MHz. This
optimized Web server also features Supermicro's flexible Universal I/O (UIO)
architecture as an option to support up to three add-on cards in a standard 1U
form factor. With eight memory slots it supports up to 64GB of either
standard 1.8-volt or energy-efficient 1.5-volt fully buffered DDR2 memory (up
to 800MHz). Other outstanding features include four 3.5" hot-swap disk drive
trays, high-efficiency 650-watt redundant power supplies, dual Gigabit
Ethernet ports and an optional front-side USB/COM port tray.
In addition to the 6015W-NTR, Supermicro also offers the SuperServer
1025C-URB, which supports eight hot-swap 2.5" hard disk drives to deliver even
higher storage performance and lower overall system power consumption. The
1025C-URB also features Supermicro's innovative UIO technology to provide
flexible I/O configuration choices including InfiniBand, SAS RAID 5 and 10Gb
Ethernet cards, while supporting up to three add-on cards in 1U.
