"For the ultimate in energy efficiency (93%*) and performance-per-watt (0.27 GFlops/watt*), Supermicro is introducing the new SBI-7425C blade server optimized for its new 14-blade 7U DatacenterBlade(TM) enclosure (SBE-714D), which is ideal for data center environments," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "In addition, our new SBI-7125C blade server in the 10-blade 7U OfficeBlade(TM) enclosure (SBE-710Q) provides industry-leading energy efficiency and low-noise operation at less than 50dB, making it an excellent choice for office environments."

Both blade servers, the SBI-7125C and SBI-7425C, are based on the Intel San Clemente chipset and support up to 48GB of ECC registered DDR2 SDRAM. While the ultra-thin (1.2") SBI-7425C features three hot-plug 2.5" SAS/SATA drive trays, the SBI-7125C supports up to six hot-plug 2.5" SAS/SATA hard disk drives. Supermicro's Datacenter Blade, with 14 blade servers in 7U, provides up to 84 DP server nodes in a standard 42U rack.

Alternatively, for the best 1U data center solution, Supermicro's new 1U Twin(TM) 6015TC SuperServers feature two DP server nodes in a single chassis and a 780-watt (90%+*) high-efficiency power supply. This 0.5U density (84 server nodes in a standard 42U rack) makes these platforms an excellent choice for high-performance computing (HPC) clusters, server farms and other datacenters where space, cost, energy-efficiency and density are high priorities.

6015TC SuperServers support up to four hot-swap drives (two for each node) and up to 96GB memory (48GB per server node). Furthermore, each node features a full-bandwidth PCI-Express x16 slot for high-performance expansion card support. While the SuperServer 6015TC-T comes standard with twin sets of dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, the high-end SuperServer 6015TC-10G also includes twin 10Gb Ethernet ports for high-bandwidth connectivity.

These new Supermicro products, based on Intel's embedded roadmap technology, offer the benefit of a very long product lifecycle (up to seven years).
