Employ advanced cooling subsystems for enhanced performance

By CBR Staff Writer

Super Micro Computer (Supermicro), a provider of application-optimised server offerings, has announced that its new line of 94%+ Platinum Level power efficiency server offerings that feature 920-watt power supply are in volume production. These new SuperServers and SuperChassis also employ the company’s cooling subsystems for enhanced performance.

The new SuperServers, available in 2U, 3U and 4U convertible tower form factors, features Universal I/O (UIO) interface on the 2U SuperServers 6026T-URF4+ and 2026T-URF4+. UIO empowers customers to choose from selection of I/O cards including 6Gbps SAS, 10GbE, FibreChannel and QDR/DDR InfiniBand subsystems, the company said.

According to Supermicro, the 2U servers also feature redundant power, four GbE ports, and 18 DIMMs for up to 192GB of ECC registered DDR3 memory. The 6026T-URF4+ supports eight 3.5 inches hot-swap SAS/SATA hard drives, while the 2026T-URF4+ supports sixteen 2.5inches hot-swap drives.

In addition, the company is also offering 3U SuperServer 6036T-6RF and 4U/tower SuperServer 7046T-6F that support up to 192GB of memory and onboard IPMI 2.0 management with remote media and KVM-over-LAN. Both these servers feature onboard 6Gbps SAS controllers to support up to eight 3.5 inches hot-swap SAS2 hard drives.

Supermicro said that its new server offerings support the entire range of new six-core Intel Xeon Processor 5600/3600 Series, including the 30-watt SKUs; and support low-voltage 1.35V DDR3 memory modules as well as standard 1.5V modules.

The company also has launched ten new SuperChassis powered by 920-watt power supply, out of which eight are 2U chassis. The SC219 and SC216 series support 2.5-inch hot-swap hard drives, and the SC829 series support up to eight 3.5-inch hot-swap drives. The new SC835TQ-R920B chassis supports up to seven full-height, full-length add-on cards and features 100% cooling redundancy.

Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro, said: Addressing the primary challenges facing datacentres today, these servers also help IT managers reduce data centre cooling costs, improve the cost-effectiveness of server deployments, and reduce the typical TCO up to $300 per system during its lifetime.
