Supermicro Launches Big Data Solutions with Intel® Distribution for Apache 
Hadoop Software 
New Hadoop-optimized 1U, 2U Twin and FatTwin plus High-Capacity 4U 72+2 HDD 
Datacenter Configurations Consume up to 20% Less Power 
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: 
SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage 
technology and green computing is expanding its Hadoop Big Data initiatives 
with support for the new Intel® Distribution for Apache(TM) Hadoop® Software 
(Intel Distribution). Supermicro's Hadoop-optimized server and storage systems 
have undergone rigorous testing and validation to support today's announcement 
at the Strata Conference in Santa Clara, California. 
Supermicro is introducing its latest Hadoop-optimized systems at the Strata 
Conference, February 26-28, including the ultra-efficient, 4U FatTwin 
SuperServer F617H6-FTL+ systems which achieve up to 20% less power consumption 
compared to industry standard 1U Hadoop systems.  Similar to the Supermicro 1U 
standalone version that supports 12+2 drives (SKU# SYS-6017R-73HDP+), this 4U 
supports four nodes with twelve 3.5-inch hard drives plus two 2.5-inch drives 
each.  Featuring front-side I/O and redundant Platinum level (94%+) power 
supplies, this latest FatTwin system delivers unsurpassed system power 
efficiency and the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) available. 
"Supermicro develops enterprise-class server and storage solutions based on 
Intel's processor and chipset technologies, and this alliance addresses the 
growing Big Data challenge," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of 
Supermicro.  "We simplify the deployment of Big Data solutions by offering 
turn-key compute and storage clusters designed and optimized specifically for 
the Hadoop framework.  Our latest Hadoop-optimized system designs 
significantly reduce overall power consumption to help protect the environment 
and save customers money on their energy bills." 
"Enterprises looking to deploy big data applications quickly need a platform 
that delivers performance, reliability, and ease of deployment," said Boyd 
Davis, VP and General Manager of the Datacenter Software Division of Intel.  
"The Supermicro solutions for big data optimized with the Intel Distribution 
for Apache Hadoop software deliver hardware-enhanced performance and security 
along with the simplicity of an integrated solution." 
Perfect for high-capacity backend storage, Supermicro's new SuperChassis 847D 
(Server SKU# SSG-6047R-E1R72L) supports an industry-leading 72 external, 
hot-swappable 3.5-inch SAS2 or SATA3 hard drives in 4U. The SC847D supports 
well over 200TB of storage capacity and also features two 2.5-inch internal 
drive trays for convenient operating system (OS) installation on either 
solid-state drive (SSD) or hard disk drive (HDD) devices.  This incredible new 
storage server chassis doubles the hot-swap storage density and still 
maintains high serviceability with all of the hot-swap drives being easily 
accessible from the front or back side without having to move the system.  The 
SC847D comes standard with redundant Platinum level power supplies to provide 
the best reliability and power efficiency available.
