Supermicro Exhibits New 4U 72x 3.5" HDD Storage Platform with 10GB/sec
Throughput for Broadcast Media Applications at NAB 2013
Additional Systems Feature Increased Performance, Capacity and Power Savings
Optimized for Next Generation Digital Content Creation, Management and
LAS VEGAS, April 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a
global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology
and green computing is exhibiting its latest SuperWorkstation, SuperServer®
and SuperStorage platforms at the NAB Show® this week in Las Vegas, Nevada.
With computing and data management demands exploding behind the scenes of
broadcast media, content creation, management and distribution are key areas
where Supermicro's solutions have a major impact. At the show, Supermicro will
showcase a variety of high performance computing and storage solutions
addressing end-to-end processes within the digital production workflow. The
centerpiece of the show is Supermicro's new high capacity Double-Sided
Storage® server (SSG-6047R-E1R72L) featuring 72x 3.5" hot-swappable HDDs,
supporting up to 288TB in 4U. With 10GB/sec throughput, this mass storage
server has the enormous capacity and bandwidth to support extreme levels of
concurrent streaming and other high storage bandwidth dependent applications.
Show highlights also include Supermicro's flexible, high performance, power
saving 4U FatTwin™ architecture in a 4-node 8x 3.5" hot-swap HDD per U
configuration for distribution along with a range of high performance GPU
workstations, servers and a 12x GPU FatTwin VDI configuration for content
development. Specialized embedded solutions for distribution and digital
signage applications will also be on display at the show.
"Supermicro focuses on maximizing performance, density and power savings
across our computing and storage product lines," said Charles Liang, President
and CEO of Supermicro. "For example, our new 72 HDD Double-Sided Storage
server is unrivaled in density and the throughput performance of 10GB/sec
enabling broadcasters to deliver content using the latest high resolution
formats. Our FatTwin platform provides the highest computing and efficiency in
4U and with its optimized cooling and power saving architecture can save IT
operations up to $500 per node over 4 years. When scaled out to serve HD and
UHD digital content over thousands of channels, performance, density and power
savings become crucial business considerations for broadcast IT operations."
