Press release
Friday 7 June 2013

Super Micro Computer, a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing is exhibiting its latest energy efficient server and storage solutions this week at Computex 2013. The showcase will focus on maximizing performance and capacity per watt with innovations in power saving, higher density server and storage systems.

At the show, Supermicro will launch a full line of Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 V3 family based desktop and server motherboards along with its new high-density, power-efficient 3U MicroCloud featuring 12x independent hot-swappable nodes, each supporting 13W-80W CPUs. Exhibits will also feature versatile and power saving FatTwin and Twin Architecture based systems, 4U SuperStorage featuring 72x 3.5-inch external hot-swap HDDs and an exclusive look at Supermicro's new Mid-Tower Hyper-Speed Gaming System. HPC optimized GPU server solutions, high performance workstations for HFT and digital media, SuperBlade for the enterprise, embedded systems and over 50 single, dual and quad motherboards to match any specific application will also be on display. Additional products include 10/1GbE networking solutions, Battery Backup Power (BBP) modules, SuperRack and System Management Software Suite for complete integrated solutions.

"With energy and expansion costs rising worldwide, data centers and cloud service providers need server, storage and networking solutions that offer greater savings in terms of operating efficiency and capacity," said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. "Our new MicroCloud delivers on all fronts with improved performance, support for 13W low power processors and higher density with 12 independent hot-swap nodes in a 3U form factor. Alongside our new line of Intel Xeon E3-1200 V3 based products, power saving FatTwin architecture and full range of energy efficient server and storage solutions, Supermicro is leading the market with server-building block solutions that save energy, cost and in the long run, our Mother Earth."

Intel creates energy-conscious technologies for tomorrow and our Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 V3 launch embodies this pursuit, according to Intel. With this processor launch, Intel delivers to market lower power consumption with higher performance and new feature sets. Supermicro is one of the leaders in server innovation and its launch readiness with products from X10 motherboards to its new 3U 12/8 node MicroCloud server supporting Intel's latest processors emphasize Intel's combined commitment to expanding green computing.
