SAN JOSE, Calif., March 4, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a leader in application optimized, high-performance server and workstation solutions, is showcasing its latest SuperBlade(TM) server and high-performance whisper-quiet (28dB*) workstation technologies at CeBIT 2008 in Hannover, Germany, March 4-9 in hall 21, stand B46, booth A1. With 93%* peak power supply efficiency, Supermicro's SuperBlade(TM) is the industry's most energy-efficient and earth-friendly family of blade servers. In addition, the SuperWorkstation 7045A-C3, based on the new Intel(R) 5100 (San Clemente) chipset, is the quietest high-performance workstation in its class.


"We are showcasing over 40 of our latest server and workstation motherboards plus more than 20 server and workstation systems including our whisper-quiet (28dB) workstations. For the ultimate in energy efficiency (93%) and server technologies, we are showcasing two new SuperBlade(TM) server systems -- OfficeBlade(TM), optimized for office environments (< 50dB*), and DatacenterBlade(TM), optimized for data centers and HPC with support for 14 blades in a 7U enclosure," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "Leading the way in green technology, our earth-friendly servers and workstations feature innovative power supply and thermal subsystem designs to achieve exceptional system-level energy efficiency. Our customers benefit with substantial energy savings and lower TCO."

OfficeBlade(TM) (SBE-710Q-R42) is ideal for SMB (small-medium businesses) as well as personal supercomputing applications. With acoustically optimized thermal and cooling technologies it achieves <50dB with 10 DP server blades and features 100-240VAC, ultra high-efficiency (93%), N+1 redundant power supplies.

DatacenterBlade(TM) (SBE-714D-R42) is perfect for data center and HPC applications with performance & density optimization to achieve 672 processing cores and 4TB DDR2 memory per 42U standard rack. This powerful SuperBlade(TM) features 100-240VAC, ultra high-efficiency (93%), N+1 redundant power supplies, along with industry-leading density, performance/watt and price/performance.

Supermicro's latest SuperWorkstations feature innovative new whisper-quiet complete system designs, implementing acoustically optimized thermal technology to achieve 28dB, which is quieter than the sound level of a whisper-quiet library environment. These systems provide an impressive array of important customer benefits including a 30%* boost in performance and sharply increased energy savings with new high-efficiency power supplies featuring patented redundant cooling and energy-saving memory systems.
