- Company Showcases New Lineup of High Performance Computing Solutions
Optimized for the New 16 Core AMD Opteron Processor
SAN JOSE, California, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc.
(NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server
technology and green computing, has upgraded its line of A+ servers with the
just released AMD (NYSE: AMD) Opteron™ 6300 Series processors. The new A+
server and tower platforms deliver up to 24 percent higher performance over
prior generation solutions and maximize processor density and core counts to
support more VMs for public and private cloud deployments. Performance per
watt is up to 40 percent higher with intelligent thermal/power monitoring and
management, enabling datacenters running robust large-scale software systems
to maximize performance while lowering overall TCO. With dual-processor (DP)
and multi-processor (MP) architectures, Supermicro ups the performance bar for
data center and high-performance computing (HPC) cluster applications.

Supermicro's lineup of A+ servers supporting the Opteron 6300 series
processors include 1U DP ( AS-1022G-URF ) solutions supporting the company's
UIO architecture for flexible I/O expansion options, multiple expansion card
options including SAS/SATA RAID5, 10Gb Ethernet and InfiniBand for the most
demanding HPC applications. High density form-factors in 1U MP ( AS-1042G-TF )
and 2U MP ( AS2042G-6RF ) support quad processors with up to 64 cores and 1TB
of DDR3 memory and high-speed InfiniBand QDR interconnects for
high-performance database and SQL server applications. The 4-node, 2UTwin2® (
AS-2022TG-HLIBQRF ) supports dual 16-core AMD Opteron processors and 1866 DDR3
memory per node with onboard Mellanox InfiniBand and 1620W redundant Platinum
Level (94%+) high-efficiency power supplies. A 4U/Tower solution ( AS-4022G-6F
) in DP and ( AS-4042G-6RF ) in MP offer maximum storage capacities with
support for up to 8x hot-swap SAS/SATA HDD bays. For the best computing
performance, SuperBlade® maximizes Opteron 6300 series processor density with
up to 20 DP nodes ( SBA-7222G-T2 ) or 10 MP nodes ( SBA-7142G-T4 ) in 7U
enclosure, supporting up to 3,840 cores in a 42U rack with high speed, low
latency interconnect using FDR InfiniBand switches.
