Supermicro® 3U SuperServer® Leveraging 24TB Fusion ioMemory Achieves Over 
10GB/s Throughput 
Supermicro 11x PCI-E SuperServer Powered by Ten 2.4TB Fusion ioDrive2 Duos 
Delivers Mass Storage Appliance with Unrivaled Levels of Performance and 
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: 
SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology 
and green computing, announces a new high-performance, high-capacity storage 
appliance developed in collaboration with Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) built on 
Supermicro's 3U 11x PCI-E SuperServer (SYS-6037R-TXRF). 
This dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 based platform features up to ten 
2.4TB Fusion ioDrive2 Duo (F01-001-2T41-CS-0001) ioMemory products with up to 
3GB/s and 935K IOPs leaving an additional PCI-E 2.0 x4 (in x8) slot available 
for a high-bandwidth network expansion card such as Supermicro's 10GbE or 
FDR/QDR InfiniBand add-on cards. 
For an optimal compute-storage-network architecture where storage density and 
connectivity is of importance, solutions scale up to eight ioDrive2 Duos and 
have a minimum 2x 40GbE or FDR/QDR IB ports. This Fusion powered SuperServer 
also supports 130W CPUs, up to 512GB DDR 1600MHz of memory in 16x DIMMs, 8x 
hot-swap 3.5" HDD bays, dual GbE LAN (Intel® i350) ports, redundant 980W 
Platinum Level high-efficiency (94%) power supplies and remote server 
management via IPMI 2.0. 
While the maximum density per RU is unrivaled in the industry for a PCI-E 
flash-based design, the most impressive characteristics are the flexibility of 
the architecture – balance between sheer throughput and IOPS – while 
providing the most energy efficient platform on a watts/performance basis. 
This joint solution is ideal for a wide array of HPC applications ranging from 
Financials (HFT, Derivatives trading, Black Scholes model, BGM/LIBOR market 
model), Government/Military (Search, Risk Analysis, Code/Decode-CODEC) to Oil 
and Gas exploration (Modeling, Seismic Data Interpretation, 3D Imaging 
Processing) and BioSciences. 
"Supermicro designs solutions such as our 11x PCI-E slot SuperServer for 
maximum performance, efficiency and expandability and our open platforms 
create groundbreaking opportunities like this collaboration with Fusion-io," 
said Wally Liaw, Vice President of Sales, International at Supermicro. "This 
new ultra high performance 24TB storage solution is the foundation for new 
products in our pipeline and we are looking forward to incorporate upcoming 
Fusion-io technologies into select HPC servers for even greater storage 
density at higher IOPs for the most demanding, cutting edge applications." 
"Supermicro's new Fusion powered appliance delivers massive throughput and 
capacity in a very small footprint for highly efficient application 
acceleration," said Will Hall, Fusion-io Vice President of OEM Sales.  
"Fusion-io is pleased to collaborate with Supermicro to deliver this 
breakthrough in powerful HPC." 
For applications that have different compute, networking, storage and form 
factor requirements, Supermicro has a wide range of 1U, 2U, 4U and 5U 
SuperServers supporting 1/2/4/8 processor configurations with up to 2TB of 
main memory and validated Fusion-io products with capacities ranging from 
365GB to 5.12TB. This is the widest product offering from any supplier on the 
market today.

About Fusion-io 
Fusion-io has pioneered a next generation storage memory platform for shared 
data decentralization that significantly improves the processing capabilities 
within a datacenter by relocating process-critical, or "active", data from 
centralized storage to the server where it is being processed, a methodology 
referred to as data decentralization. Fusion's integrated hardware and 
software solutions leverage non-volatile memory to significantly increase 
datacenter efficiency and offers enterprise grade performance, reliability, 
availability and manageability. Fusion's data decentralization platform can 
transform legacy architectures into next generation datacenters and allows 
enterprises to consolidate or significantly reduce complex and expensive high 
performance storage, high performance networking and memory-rich servers. 
Fusion's platform enables enterprises to increase the utilization, performance 
and efficiency of their datacenter resources and extract greater value from 
their information assets.
