Supermicro Delivers Application-Optimized Servers for Intel Xeon Processor 5600/3600 Series

By DE Editors

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

According to the company, the products boost performance 60% compared to the previous generation of Nehalem solutions.  The products feature high-efficiency power supplies and tuned cooling subsystems and server board designs.

“With Supermicro’s 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,” said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. 

Supermicro’s TwinBlade, based on the SBI-7226T-T2 blade, supports up to 20 dual-socket server blades per 7U enclosure.

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

Supermicro Platinum-level power supplies with PM-Bus come standard on most of the new systems.  In addition, Supermicro provides a Universal I/O (UIO) interface that allows customers to choose from a host of I/O cards, including SAS 2.0, 10 Gb Ethernet, Fiber Channel, and QDR/DDR InfiniBand subsystems.

Supermicro’s server boards offer onboard IPMI 2.0 with media and KVM-over-LAN support as well as 10Gb Ethernet, 40Gb/s QDR, and DDR onboard InfiniBand versions for many of its server boards, such as the X8DTT series for its multi-node 1U Twin, 2U Twin, and 2U Twin2 servers.
