SuperBlade Revolutionizes Market, Delivering Lower Initial Acquisition Cost and TCO

SAN JOSE, CA --- Super Micro Computer, Inc. introduces its new SuperBlade server that delivers a better initial acquisition cost structure than traditional blades, rack mount and OCP designs with the density and operational efficiency of blades in an open Rack Scale Design enabled architecture.

The new 8U SuperBlade supports both current and new generation Intel® Xeon® processor-based blade servers with the fastest 100G EDR InfiniBand and Omni-Path switches for mission critical enterprise as well as data center applications. It also leverages the same Ethernet switches, chassis management modules, and software as the successful MicroBlade® for improved reliability, serviceability, and affordability. It maximizes the performance and power efficiency with DP and MP processors up to 205 watts in half-height and full-height blades, respectively. The new smaller form factor 4U SuperBlade maximizes density and power efficiency while enabling up to 140 dual-processor servers or 280 single-processor servers per 42U rack.

The shared infrastructure design of the new SuperBlade enables maximum power efficiency by lowering power consumption up to 20 percent, industry leading density up to 7x of 1U rack systems and reduces cabling by up to 96 percent. The SuperBlade leverages open Redfish based management and Supermicro Rack Scale Design to empower open systems management at scale.
