MicroCloud, Multi-GPU servers and 2U Twin3
30 June 2011

Prominently displayed at the Supermicro booth within Computex Taipei 2011 were some of the latest state-of-the-art innovations recently developed by Super Micro Computer, Inc. Of special note are 3 solutions designed for distinctly different purposes or applications.

The Supermicro MicroCloud is a 3U system offering 8 x System Nodes, with each node powered by an Intel Xeon E3-1200 processor, up to 32GB UDIMM ECC memory, PCI-E x8 low profile expansion slot, 2 x 3.5" HDD, Dual GbE and dedicated IPMI remote management. All 8 x UP Xeon nodes are protected by a Redundant PSU offering 80PLUS Platinum level of power efficiency and are cable-free, hot-pluggable server nodes that can opperate independently of one another.


In terms of GPU-Solutions we now offer the ability to install up to 3 and 6 x Double-Width NVIDIA Fermi GPU cards in a 1U or 2U system respectively, both of which offers an unprecedented level of high-density HPC (High Performance Computing) power. Both servers offer dual GbE, dedicated IPMI and high-efficiency redundant power supplies.


Continuing the development of high density 2U Twin systems spawns the new 8-node 2U Twin3. The 2U Twin3 is unique in that it offers a high density of low-power systems (8) in the space of a 2U rack unit. Each of the 8 nodes utilises an Intel Atom D525 that draws a power consumption of only 13W. Coupled with SO-DIMM memory and dual 2.5" HDDs per node the systems are optimised for cost-effective data centres, industrial process control, small offices, web proxy servers or cache servers. The 8 nodes are installed in a 2x4 arrangement of 4 x hot-swappable trays (two nodes per tray) with dual GbE and shared IPMI per node. All nodes are protected by redundant PSU.

Supermicro New Zealand recommends Fitness for Purpose and Total Cost of Ownership as the criteria for purchasing decisions.
