"Supermicro's Twin architecture that not only doubles the number of nodes in a single blade enclosure but also improves the performance-per-watt, providing an excellent solution for datacenter, cloud computing and HPC applications," said
"AMD has a long history of working closely with Supermicro to deliver HPC solutions designed to address customers' demands, specifically the balance of performance and power efficiency," said
As the latest addition to Supermicro's SuperBlade® family, the innovative TwinBlade™ doubles the number of dual-processor (DP) compute nodes per 7U enclosure to 20. Based on the SBA-7222G-T2 blade supporting the latest AMD Opteron™ 6100 Series processors this system delivers incredible performance-per-dollar and performance-per-square-foot. Available with dual 40Gb/s QDR InfiniBand switches, this optimized blade solution combines industry-leading 94% power supply efficiency with Supermicro's innovative and highly efficient thermal and cooling system designs to deliver exceptional system performance-per-watt, making it an exceptionally green, and power-efficient server solution for customers.
When powered by new 12-core AMD Opteron 6100 Series (Socket G34) processors, the TwinBlade™ enables up to 2,880 processing cores, 240 SATA drives and 15TB of DDR3 memory per 42U rack. Featuring dual 40Gb/s InfiniBand, FCoE or 10GbE switches and dual 1/10GbE switches in one 7U enclosure, TwinBlade™ provides the highest performing I/O throughput and scalability in the industry and is a superb solution for high-performance computing (HPC), datacenter, enterprise and cloud computing deployments. With successful installations at CERN, PRACE, and other Fortune 100 organizations, the SuperBlade® has already become the preferred solution for a wide range of mission-critical applications.
Supermicro's enterprise-class SuperBlade® features quad-processor blades for maximum density, performance, scalability and flexibility. With up to 10 four-socket server blades within a single 7U enclosure, this new 4-way SuperBlade® SBA-7142G-T4 also supports up to 2,880 AMD Opteron™ processor cores, 240 SATA drives and 15TB of DDR3 memory per 42U rack.
