"We have many cutting edge innovations launching simultaneously for HPC applications at SC12. From our expanding line of FatTwin SuperServers delivering 16% net power savings to energy-efficient free-air cooling support for new CPUs, GPUs, PCI-E based Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, SSD technology and wider deployment of high-speed 10GbE and low-latency IB-FDR network connectivity, Supermicro is raising the performance bar while reducing our impact on the planet across our entire product line," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro.
Highlights include Supermicro's new 4U FatTwin featuring 8/4 node front or rear I/O configurations and a new model supporting up to 12x GPU/MIC based cards in 4U for the most compute intensive applications. A wide range of X9 SuperServer and highest compute density SuperBlade solutions support the latest NVIDIA Kepler K20 GPU and new Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor technologies offering massive parallel processing power for scalable, clusterable supercomputing solutions. Supermicro's SuperBlade solutions feature high speed FDR InfiniBand, 10Gb Ethernet and FCoE switches. New Hyper-Speed server/4U Tower solutions targeting HFT and computational finance applications are optimized for enhanced speed of dual high-performance (150W TDP) CPUs while maintaining stability and reliability with intelligent monitoring, custom cooling and board-level failsafe technology. SuperWorkstations with NVIDIA Maximus certification combining the industry's highest quantity of GPUs (up to 5x) for simultaneous, real-time visualization and interactive design capability in a single workstation. Additional solutions include a new 3U 12x hot-plug node MicroCloud SuperServer for high density Cloud computing, Twin architecture based SuperServers featuring maximum power savings and efficiency with performance, high-density, high capacity SuperStorage with up to 88x 2.5" hot-swap HDDs in 4U Double-Sided Storage models and Supermicro's exclusive redundant Battery Backup Power (BBP) module technology that increases overall power efficiency and cost savings over traditional UPS systems.
Built on Supermicro's 4-way MP, 2-way DP and single processor UP X9 motherboard configurations, Supermicro's HPC servers support Intel Xeon processor E5-4600, E5-2600, E5-2400 product families. A+ motherboards in MP/DP/UP configurations support the latest AMD Opteron 6300 series processors. Up to 1TB of memory is supported with a variety of PCI-E 3.0 configurations, high speed I/O with 10GbE and InfiniBand FDR onboard and add-on cards options are also available. With 14U and 42U fully integrated SuperRack solutions, a lineup of 1Gb and 10Gb top-of-rack Ethernet switches and remote Data Center management software (SDCM) suite, Supermicro delivers total supercomputing clusters ready for the Exascale era.
