Supermicro Begins Shipping its New 6-Gb/s SAS 2.0 Solutions

CEO says comprehensive SAS 2.0 server, workstation, and blade product lines “raise the bar in enterprise storage.”

Supermicro Computer Inc., manufacturer of application-optimized server, blade, and workstation solutions, has made available its new Server Building Block products.

The Server Building Block products deliver 6-Gb/s SAS 2.0 performance. The product launch includes eight systems plus five serverboard platforms, two SuperBlade servers, and three Universal I/O (UIO) cards.

These new product lines incorporate the latest LSI 6Gb/s SAS controller IC (SAS2008), 6Gb/s SAS RAID-on-Chip (SAS2108), and MegaRAID software stack.

Supermicro’s CEO and president Charles Liang believes the new 6Gb/s SAS2 solutions “raise the bar in enterprise storage” by doubling the bandwidth and offering superior scalability, reliability and enhanced features. He says, “Our innovative Server Building Block Solutions, incorporating proven LSI SAS and RAID technology, enable customers to improve their storage performance and power efficiency without having to pay a price premium.”

Supermicro’s initial launch of eight new Intel Xeon 5500 (Nehalem) processor-based systems with onboard 6Gb/s SAS technology includes 1U, 2U, 3U, and 4U rackmount or tower servers and workstations with both 2.5″ and 3.5″ hard drive support.

Based on the X8DT6-F, X8DA6, X8DTW-6?, X8DTH-6F, and X8DTL-6F serverboards, Supermicro SAS 2.0 systems feature the advanced thermal and power designs to deliver optimal performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar.

Supermicro also introduced the industry’s first blade servers based on 6Gb/s SAS technology, the SBI-7126T-S6 and SBI-7426T-S3, for 10-blade and 14-blade enclosures respectively.†

For flexible storage applications, Supermicro’s new Universal I/O (UIO) add-on controller cards support eight internal 6 Gb/s SAS ports and RAID functionalities.

With a PCI Express 2.0 host interface and intelligent architecture, these controllers double the data transfer rates of their 3 Gb/s predecessors and are designed to easily integrate with existing 3Gb/s SATA and SAS infrastructures for improved performance and scalability.
