Supermicro® 2U TwinPro™/TwinPro²™ Unleash I/O and Network Performance with 12Gbs SAS3, NVMe, 10GbE/40GbE and 56Gbs FDR InfiniBand

-- Industry First 12Gbs SAS3, PCI-E SSD Enabled Servers Offers Best Performance per Watt with New Power Efficient Technology

SAN JOSE, California, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing, builds on its award winning Twin architecture with new 2U TwinPro™ and TwinPro²™. These next generation 2U Twin architecture servers are available 2-node (TwinPro) and 4-node (TwinPro²) configurations optimized for high-end, high-density Data Center, Cloud Computing, Enterprise, HPC and Big Data applications. The TwinPro series servers are performance enhanced with LSI 3108/3008 12Gbs SAS 3.0 controllers to maximized storage I/O, NVM Express (NVMe) for secure, accelerated PCI-E SSD performance and onboard 10GbE or InfiniBand 56Gbs FDR/40Gbs QDR options for maximum network bandwidth. Additional features of the TwinPro servers include support for dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v2 processors (up to 130W TDP), greater memory capacity up to 1TB ECC DDR3 1866MHz memory in 16x DIMMs, additional PCI-E 3.0 expansion slots, up to 12x 2.5" or 6x 3.5" hot-swap HDD/SSD trays per node and support for a full-length, double-width GPU (2x SXM GPU option available) or Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor per node in the 2U TwinPro models. Inherent to the innovative Twin architecture is the energy efficiency achieved with airflow optimized motherboard and chassis designs, shared 80mm fans with intelligent speed control and redundant, hot-swappable Platinum Level high-efficiency (95%) digital switching power supplies (Titanium Level >96% option). In addition, these systems are easily serviceable with hot-swap nodes, reduced cabling and secure, remote server management through IPMI. The resulting total advantage is lowest overall TCO for customers seeking the greatest competitive edge in challenging IT environments.
