Economical Power Efficiency and Thermal Management Systems
Supermicro's server solutions include many design innovations to
optimize power consumption and manage heat dissipation. The company
designs flexible power management systems which customize or eliminate
components to reduce overall power consumption. Supermicro's proprietary
power supplies can significantly enhance power efficiency. Supermicro
has mastered the power supply design challenge to produce high-quality,
high-performance solutions with peak efficiency ratings of 94% and
higher. This makes Supermicro systems the leading Green standard for
server chassis solutions. Supermicro has also developed technologies
that reduce the effects of heat dissipation from its servers, allowing
them to achieve a superior price-to-performance ratio while minimizing
energy and reducing the risk of server malfunction caused by
Advanced Storage Technology
Supermicro's innovative Double-Sided Storage™ provides extra
high-density storage to maximize space and power efficiency. With
support for up to 88x 2.5" HDDs in server mode and 72x 2.5" HDDs in JBOD
mode, the systems provide direct hot-swap access to all storage drives.
Additional high value features include high-efficiency redundant,
hot-swappable Power Supplies and integrated 6Gb/s SAS 2.0 that doubles
the storage data transfer rate to 6.0 Gbps for the most advanced
Hybrid CPU + GPU Supercomputing Systems
With supercomputer-level performance scaling to 2 TFLOPS in 1U and 4
TFLOPS in 4U, these hybrid CPU + GPU supercomputing solutions are ideal
for scientific computing, CAD/CAM, oil and gas exploration, medical
imaging, and other computationally-intensive applications.
Through its proprietary technology, Supermicro can offer significantly
more memory and expansion slots than traditional server systems with a
comparable server form factor. Called Universal I/O or UIO, this
technology allows users to add up to 3 add-on cards to a 1U server
system or 6 add-on cards to a 2U system. Supermicro UIO servers, in
combination with a riser card and UIO card, can provide over 20
different networking choices efficiently and economically.
Quality and Reliability
Supermicro adheres to rigorous design implementation, manufacturing
standards and ISO standards to ensure that its products are produced
