Supermicro Rolls Out Xeon-Friendly Products

New line of server, workstation, and blade solutions support Xeon processors 5600/3600. New TwinBlade supports up to 20 dual-socket server blades per 7U enclosure.

Super Micro Computer Inc. has launched a line of server, workstation, and blade solutions to support the new generation† Intel Xeon processor 5600/3600 Series (formerly codenamed Westmere).

Supermicro’s TwinBlade is based on the SBI-7226T-T2 blade supports up to 20 dual-socket server blades per 7U enclosure. Combined with dual 40 Gb/s InfiniBand, FCoE, or 10GbE switches and dual 1/10 GbE switches in one 7U enclosure. The TwinBlade provides the high-performing I/O throughput and scalability in the industry and is a superb solution for high-performance computing (HPC), datacenter, enterprise, and cloud computing environments, especially when powered by the new generation six-core Xeon processors.

Supermicro says its new solutions boost performance 60 percent compared to predecessor models.” “Featuring power supplies with the highest efficiency in the industry and advanced tuned cooling subsystems and serverboard designs, Supermicro’s latest solutions offer the highest performance, density, performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar,” the company states in a recent press release to EH Publishing.

Supermicro president and CEO Charles Liang says his company’s new products sport “innovative architecture and resource sharing.”

“Our comprehensive selection of products optimized for the new generation six-core Xeon processors deliver not only the best performance-per-watt but also performance-per-dollar while offering the highest densities in the industry,” Liang says. “For example, our new TwinBlade doubles the number of dual-processor compute nodes to 20 per 7U, for an incredibly dense and cost-effective 0.35U per node. This breakthrough blade design leverages our successful Twin architecture to provide optimal performance, density and value.”

For Intel’s part, Supermicro’s innovation is “bringing customers around these new Intel technologies.”

Intel vice president, data center group, Kirk Skaugen says, “The new Intel Xeon Processor 5600/3600 series provides an exciting foundation for Supermicro to deliver unprecedented new levels of intelligent performance, energy efficiency, and security.”

Supermicro’s new server and workstation system and motherboard platforms support the entire range of new six-core Intel Xeon processor 5600/3600 Series, including the highest performance 130-watt SKUs. These new solutions support both standard 1.5V DDR3 memory modules and low-voltage
1.35V modules.

The new platforms offer onboard IPMI 2.0 with media and KVM-over-LAN support as well as 10 Gb Ethernet, high-performance 40 Gb/s QDR and cost-effective DDR onboard InfiniBand versions for many of its serverboards, such as the X8DTT series for its popular multi-node 1U Twin, 2U Twin, and 2U Twin servers.
