Super Micro Computer, Inc. exhibited a selection of high-performance computing (HPC) solutions at the Supercomputing 2010 (SC10) conference, including a first peek at the SuperServer 5086B-TRF that supports eight next-generation Intel Xeon MP processors in a 5U form factor, and a SuperBlade that supports 20 GPUs in a single 7U blade enclosure.
“As the first-to-market pioneer of new server technology, Supermicro continues to provide customers with server solutions featuring the most advanced performance, density and efficiency,” says Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. “For example, our next-generation 8-way SuperServer packs 64 DIMMs, up to 10 PCI 2.0 x8 expansion slots and 24 hard drives into 5U to deliver exceptional density making it ideal for robust Super HPC applications.”
Also on display was Supermicro’s new SuperBlade system, which enables up to 120 Fermi GPUs plus 120 of the latest Intel Xeon 5600 series processors to be deployed in a standard 42U rack. Equipped with dual IOH chips and dual 40Gb/s QDR IB HCA per blade, this GPU SuperBlade solution delivers a CPU to GPU balance and optimized I/O.
Supermicro’s GPU supercomputing servers are optimized for the latest NVIDIA M2070 and C2070 Fermi GPU cards with double the onboard memory of the M2050 and C2050 cards. The 1U SuperServer 6016GT-TF-FM207 provides up to 1 TeraFLOPS performance, and the SuperServer 7046GT-TRF-FC407 comes loaded with four double-width NVIDIA Fermi C2070 GPU cards and supports three additional PCI-E add-on cards for high-bandwidth I/O. The company’s 2U Twin system supports two hot-pluggable dual-processor (DP) compute nodes, two GPU cards, 24 hot-swap SAS2/SATA drives, onboard 40Gb/s InfiniBand, and redundant power.
Supermicro also showcased its capability to deliver other IT hardware needs by demonstrating new InfiniBand and 10G Ethernet switches along with its latest SuperServers, SuperWorkstations, Double-Sided Storage systems, TwinBlade and new 42U SuperRack.
