Supermicro Launches High-End 2.5" HDD SuperServers


SAN JOSE, Calif., April 30, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high performance server solutions, today unveiled its high-end 1U and 2U SuperServers optimized for 2.5" SAS hard disk drives. The high-density SuperServer 1025C-UR and SuperServer 1025W-UR both support eight hot-swappable 2.5" SAS hard disk drives and feature Supermicro's flexible Universal I/O (UIO) architecture to support up to three add-on cards in a standard 1U form factor. With 16 hot-swap 2.5" SAS drive trays, Supermicro's 2U SuperServer 2025W-UR+ supports up to 128GB FBD memory including 1.5V low-voltage memory support.


"Enterprise and energy-conscious customers recognize the cost-saving and performance advantages of migrating to 2.5" hard drives. These new DP Xeon SuperServers offer superior flexibility and performance-per-watt, making them the best choice available," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "By combining our high-efficiency power supply, motherboard and thermal design technology with the energy-saving advantages of 2.5" disk drives, customers typically save $225 to $360* over three years. In addition to lower latency, 2.5" drives enable higher aggregate I/O bandwidth, empowering these servers to deliver up to 50 percent greater system performance in the same footprint."

Supermicro's versatile SuperServer 1025C-UR and SuperServer 1025W-UR are optimized for high-end, high performance server applications and support eight hot-swap 2.5" drive bays. Advanced features include Universal I/O (UIO) support for up to three add-on cards and high-efficiency, redundant power supplies for high availability. Based on the low-power Intel 5100 (San Clemente) chipset, the 1025C-UR maximizes energy and cost savings with native DDR2 memory support and offers the benefit of a very long product lifecycle (up to seven years). For maximum performance, the SuperServer 1025W-UR, based on the Intel 5400 (Seaburg) chipset, supports 1600MHz CPU bus and 800MHz memory along with two PCI-Express 2.0 expansion slots, doubling the I/O bandwidth.

Also based on the Seaburg chipset, the 2U SuperServer 2025W-UR+ supports up to 128GB of memory in 16 FB-DIMM slots. Other high-performance features include four PCI-Express 2.0 expansion slots (including one UIO slot), support for 16 2.5" drives, and high-efficiency redundant power supplies to deliver maximum availability and energy savings.
