        Gateway and Firewall Server.

Supermicro's 1U 5017P-TLN4F []/5017P-TF [] in a short-depth 9.8" SC504-203B [] chassis features 1x 3.5" or 2x 2.5" SATA3 drive bays, a 200W high-efficiency Supermicro power supply and PCI Express 3.0 x16 expansion capability on riser. These servers can be configured for a variety of embedded applications ranging from content servers, SMB storage/network/security appliances and IPC systems to standalone kiosk and digital signage solutions. Supermicro's new embedded server solutions support Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 Mobile processors with ECC support. These servers come in two configurations - i7 4C/35W and i5/2C 35W models.

"Supermicro is rapidly leveraging our server design expertise to expand our solutions for the embedded market," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "Our new embedded motherboards and server solutions take maximum advantage of the new features available in Intel's latest mobile processors. Our designs focus on quality, flexibility and ease of deployment offering customers a growing range of solutions that adapt to their particular applications."

On display is Supermicro's 5017P-TLN4F [] (i7) embedded server running Wind River Hypervisor for embedded devices. The Wind River Hypervisor delivers a safe and secure partitioning solution that consolidates real-time and general purpose workloads running on multiple operating systems (such as VxWorks combined with Windows 7 or Wind River Linux). The virtualization layer delivers deterministic, real-time performance to the factory floor applications, while simultaneously running business applications in a safe and secure environment.

"By delivering virtualization, Wind River Hypervisor helps embedded developers achieve greater levels of device functionality on a wide variety of form factors," said Mark Hermeling, product line manager for virtualization at Wind River. "Wind River Hypervisor running on Supermicro's 5017P-TLN4F embedded server can consolidate real-time and general purpose workloads on operating systems such as VxWorks, Linux and Windows, while guarding safety and security. Together with Supermicro, we can provide our customers with the capability to reduce cost, save space, weight and power and deliver innovative new solutions that combine real-time control and business applications in a single box."

Also on display is Supermicro's next generation server 5017P-TF [] (i5) running Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials. This embedded solution demo is ideal for SMB and branch offices, allowing data to be secured and readily available to a number of remote and desk users avoiding network bandwidth or access delays.
