Supermicro® 3U SuperServer® Leveraging 24TB Fusion ioMemory Achieves Over
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

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.
