Supermicro provides flexible and customizable server solutions to address the application needs of its customers. Flexibility and modularity allows Supermicro to design industry standard materials into proprietary components such as serverboards, chassis and power supplies. This design principle delivers high-efficiency, cost-effective solutions with superior features that fit even the most demanding and constrained applications. This Server Building Block Solutions® approach allows Supermicro to provide a broad range of SKUs offering the most choices for customers.
Supermicro's server solutions include many design innovations to optimize power consumption and manage heat dissipation. The company designs flexible power management systems which customize or eliminate components to reduce overall power consumption. Supermicro's proprietary power supplies can significantly enhance power efficiency. Supermicro has mastered the power supply design challenge to produce high-quality, high-performance solutions with peak efficiency ratings of 94% and higher. This makes Supermicro systems the leading Green standard for server chassis solutions. Supermicro has also developed technologies that reduce the effects of heat dissipation from its servers, allowing them to achieve a superior price-to-performance ratio while minimizing energy and reducing the risk of server malfunction caused by overheating.
Supermicro's innovative Double-Sided Storage™ provides extra high-density storage to maximize space and power efficiency. With support for up to 88x 2.5" HDDs in server mode and 72x 2.5" HDDs in JBOD mode, the systems provide direct hot-swap access to all storage drives. Additional high value features include high-efficiency redundant, hot-swappable Power Supplies and integrated 6Gb/s SAS 2.0 that doubles the storage data transfer rate to 6.0 Gbps for the most advanced applications.
With supercomputer-level performance scaling to 2 TFLOPS in 1U and 4 TFLOPS in 4U, these hybrid CPU + GPU supercomputing solutions are ideal for scientific computing, CAD/CAM, oil and gas exploration, medical imaging, and other computationally-intensive applications.
Through its proprietary technology, Supermicro can offer significantly more memory and expansion slots than traditional server systems with a comparable server form factor. Called Universal I/O or UIO, this technology allows users to add up to 3 add-on cards to a 1U server system or 6 add-on cards to a 2U system. Supermicro UIO servers, in combination with a riser card and UIO card, can provide over 20 different networking choices efficiently and economically.
Supermicro adheres to rigorous design implementation, manufacturing standards and ISO standards to ensure that its products are produced with the highest quality and reliability. The company integrates only the best quality parts and components into its system boards, servers, and chassis. To ensure excellent performance even under extreme operating conditions, Supermicro products undergo rigorous environmental and intense computational testing. These quality efforts optimize system performance and minimize system downtime.
