Supermicro Unleashes Its SuperBlade(TM) at CEBIT 2007

    High-Performance, High-Efficiency SuperBlade Product Line Features
    Supermicro Server Building Block Architecture for Easy Customization

    HANNOVER, Germany, March 15 /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a leader
in application-optimized, high performance server solutions, today unveiled
its SuperBlade product at CEBIT 2007 in Hannover, Germany, Hall 21, Stand A34,
Booth A1.  Implementing Supermicro's Server Building Block Solutions(TM)
architecture, SuperBlades provide versatile configuration options that enable
enterprises to optimize for specific applications. Supermicro blade servers
utilize high-efficiency, redundant power supplies to ensure energy-efficient
operation and reliability.
    "Our SuperBlade(TM) designs implement the very latest advancements in
server technology, making them not only suitable for HPC applications but also
ideal for enterprise solutions," 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
    SuperBlades support quad-core or dual-core processors and feature earth-
friendly, high-efficiency power supplies to maximize performance-per-watt and
reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).  For leading reliability and
availability, four high-efficiency, redundant power supplies power each
SuperBlade system. Supermicro offers customers the flexibility to choose
between 3000W and 7500W high-efficiency power supply depending upon system
    The Supermicro 7U blade enclosure on display holds ten blades.  It can
support up to 40 processors and up to 640GB of memory.  Supermicro DP blades
support dual hot-plug SAS or SATA hard drives. Customers have the option to
choose either 2.5" or 3.5" hard drives.
    For management and communication, the SuperBlade system comes standard
with a chassis management module for IPMI 2.0 remote server management that
provides virtual media over LAN and KVM over LAN capabilities.  SuperBlade
provides high-speed interconnect capability -- Gigabit Ethernet switch or
pass-thru module, and 20 Gbps DDR InfiniBand switches. 10 Gigabit Ethernet
switch modules are coming soon. SuperBlade is capable of extremely high-
bandwidth communication (up to 40Gbps per blade). These solutions can be
selected based on specific application requirements to provide seamless
networking between systems.
    In addition to its live SuperBlade demo, Supermicro is also demonstrating
a host of other innovative servers at CEBIT.  Three different SuperServer
demos feature the newly defined Universal I/O(TM) (UIO) architecture for
optimized storage and networking flexibility. Another new innovation is a live
1U Twin(TM) server with two DP nodes in a 1U chassis. And for those who want
four or five add-on cards, Supermicro's 2U in 1U(TM) server is the ideal
