Supermicro® SuperBlade® and MicroBlade™ product lines are advanced high-performance, density-optimized and energy-efficient solutions for scalable resource-saving datacenter applications. Both lines offer industry-leading performance, density and energy efficiency. They support the option of BBP® (Battery Backup Power modules), thus supporting extra system protection to datacenters in the case of power outage or UPS failure. This feature is ideal for critical workloads, ensuring sustained machine uptime in demanding situations.
Supermicro’s 8U SuperBlade includes the highest density x86-based servers that can support up to 205W Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. One leading semiconductor equipment company is using 8U SuperBlade systems with 120 dual-socket blade servers per rack to save space and investment dollars in its datacenter.
To address space limitations and power consumption challenges, a Fortune 50 company uses over 75,000 Supermicro MicroBlade and Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers at its Silicon Valley datacenter. Both the SuperBlade and MicroBlade are equipped with advanced airflow and thermal design that support free air-cooling. As a result, this datacenter is one of the world’s most energy-efficient with a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.06.
Compared to a traditional datacenter running at 1.49 PUE, this new Silicon Valley datacenter powered by Supermicro blade servers achieves an 88 percent improvement in overall energy efficiency. When the build-out is complete at a 35 megawatt IT load power, the company is targeting US$13.18M in savings per year in total energy costs across the entire datacenter.
