Super Micro Computer announced immediate availability of a wide array of single processor (UP) systems and motherboards supporting Intel Xeon E3-1200 v2 (Ivy Bridge) processor family. Supermicro's new platforms boost system performance with upgraded PCI-E 3.0 bus speed and DDR3-1600MHz memory bandwidth. Server solutions include the high-density 3U, 8x node, MicroCloud(TM) (5037MC-H8TRF) providing cost-effective performance for cloud computing, data center and web hosting. A wide variety of other systems include server appliances for networking/embedded applications (5017C-LF, 5017C-MF, 5017C-TF); mainstream server systems with optional Supermicro Battery Backup Power (BBP(TM)) modules (PWS206B-1R) for mission-critical reliability; and gateway/security/DVR/media transcoding and broadcast solutions (5017C-MTF, 5017C-MTRF, 1017C-TF), plus server towers for small/mid-size business applications, file/storage serving, and remote desktop applications (5037C-i, 5037C-T).
"Supermicro offers the advantage of diverse product lines with the most earth-friendly, 'future-proof' designs," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "Strong engineering expertise allows us to consistently deliver the latest energy efficient computing technologies first to market across the widest selection of platforms. Our Ivy Bridge solutions are optimized and ready for the new 22nm, Tri-Gate microarchitecture delivering higher performance and energy efficiency with lower TDP compared to previous generation solutions. Supermicro's current UP Sandy Bridge systems and boards only need a BIOS upgrade without any hardware changes to make these systems capable of supporting the new Intel Xeon E3-1200 v2 series processors."
"Customers today are looking for computing solutions that offer better energy efficiency and more flexibility without compromising performance," said Boyd Davis, VP and GM of Intel's Datacenter Infrastructure Group. "Intel welcomes Supermicro's new generation of server platforms, which have been built on the Intel Xeon processor family's leadership performance and breakthrough I/O capabilities. Supermicro is able to offer optimized solutions for customers across a broad spectrum of workloads and segments, including Green Computing."
Along with complete systems, Supermicro has a full line of Ivy Bridge based motherboards which provide the foundation of its Server Building Block Solutions. A wide range of motherboards featuring the H2 socket (X9SCD-F (for MicroCloud), X9SCM/-F, X9SCL/-F/+-F, X9SCA/-F, X9SCM-IIF, X9SCi-LN4/-LN4F, X9SPU-F, X9SAE/-V, C7P67) are available for server, workstation, desktop and embedded applications. This diverse lineup of products allows systems integrators and resellers to build application optimized solutions that address the widest variety of business, commercial and industrial needs.
