For Hadoop/Big Data, Supermicro's new 4x dual processor (DP) node front I/O
SYS-F617H6-FT+ /FTL+ features up to 12x 3.5" SAS/SATA HDDs per U with
hardware/software RAID support. Optimized for Data Center and Cloud Computing,
the SYS-F627R3-F73 / -FT features 4x hot-plug DP nodes with 4x hot-swap 3.5"
SAS/SATA HDD bays per node or 8x hot-swap 2.5" SAS HDD bays per node in the
SYS-F627R2-F73 with front I/O for ease of maintenance in hot /cold aisle
environments. For HPC applications in engineering and scientific research, the
4x node GPU FatTwin SYS-F627G3-FT+ / F73+ / F73PT+ supports up to 12x NVIDIA®
(Kepler) K10, K20M, K20X GPUs or Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors and 2x 3.5"
hot-swap HDD bays per node with 10GBase-T. 6x 2.5" hot-swap HDD bay models are
also available ( SYS-F627G2-FT+ / F73+ / F73PT+ ). Supermicro's optimized air
channel FatTwin architecture incorporates highly power efficient motherboard
designs and heavy duty 8cm fans for optimal cooling. Combined with Platinum
level, high efficiency (95%) digital switching power supplies and reduced
cabling these platforms enable operation at higher ambient temperatures (up to
47°C) lowering overall power consumption by up to 16% and dramatically
improving overall energy efficiency.
"This year at CeBIT our FatTwin shows its power savings and performance
improvement capability with the greatest cost savings of $500 per node and 33%
data bandwidth and storage capacity increase over competitive solutions on the
market," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "We can all grow
our business while embracing the earth with the industry's highest density and
energy efficient computing solutions featuring eight 3.5" hot-swap hard disc
drives per U. Our extensive FatTwin platform alongside our full range of
motherboards, servers, storage and networking solutions exemplifies
Supermicro's leadership position as the world's premiere server building block
Supermicro also has a vast array of standard and proprietary form factor
motherboards at the show providing the foundation of its server Building Block
Solutions®. Available in multi (MP), dual (DP) and single, uni (UP) processor
configurations for both Intel® and AMD CPUs, these boards cover the spectrum
from low-power, compact embedded applications to workstations and mission
critical enterprise-class rack mount server and high-capacity storage systems.
Highlights include the UP X9SBAA-F Mini-ITX embedded motherboard featuring a
low-power Intel® Atom™ processor, 8GB of DDR3 ECC memory and remote management
via IPMI ideal for use in Supermicro's new ultra-compact CSE-101i Box PC. The
UP X9SRA ATX motherboard supports an Intel® Xeon® E5-2600/1600 processor, up
to 256GB DDR3 memory and 4x PCI-E expansion slots, ideal for a cost effective
entry level workstation ( SYS-5037A-i ). The DP X9DRX+-F is Supermicro's
proprietary 15.2" x 13.2" motherboard supporting dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600
processors, up to 135W TDP and the world's only 11x PCI-E expansion slot
solution. For maximum performance per dollar, Supermicro's MP H8QG7-LN4F
supports up to 4x 16-core AMD Opteron™ 6000 series processors, 1TB DDR3 1600
MHz ECC memory, full hardware RAID and 4x PCI-E 2.0 expansion slots. These are
just a brief sampling of the more than 65 motherboards Supermicro will have on
display at CeBIT.
