Super Micro Computer, Inc., the world leader in computer, storage and networking technologies, including green computing, announces participation at World Hosting Days, the global event for cloud services and internet infrastructure providers being held in Europa-Park, Germany from March 25 to 31. Supermicro will showcase enterprise and data center solutions in the Arena exhibitor space, Booth #F09. 

Supermicro will feature the 3U MicroBlade™, a high-density compute solution developed to provide optimized performance for scale-out workloads such as dedicated hosting, web front-end, social media/content delivery, or highly parallel workloads demanded by non-relational databases and business intelligence reporting. MicroBlade is designed from the ground up to provide easy remote management, industry-leading energy efficiency, and superior cable reduction vs. 1U rack servers.

Supermicro will be showcasing the latest GPU-optimized platforms featuring the highly scalable 1U 4 CPU 1028GQ-TXR(T) and the 4U 4028GR-TXR(T) with 8 GPU support. The Supermicro GPU portfolio enables cloud service providers to host rendering/modeling-as-a-service, delivering rich user experience and high-performance to multiple clients from a single server.

Additional exhibits include a proof of concept solution, based on the 1U Ultra SuperServer and supporting 10 all hot-swappable U.2 NVMe drives with software-defined memory technology licensed from ScaleMP to accelerate in-memory applications, and a Supermicro BigTwin™ 2U 4 DP node server system, supporting both current and next generation (codename Skylake) Intel® Xeon® processor product families. Supermicro also announces a wide range of server, workstation and embedded motherboards and systems supporting new generation Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 product family (codename Kaby Lake).

At Intel Booth #D02, Supermicro will showcase Supermicro RSD, a rack-scale total solution built on industry standard Redfish APIs and open source Rack Scale Design software framework from Intel, that maximizes data center utilization through disaggregating compute, networking and storage resources distributed within a rack or across multiple racks, enabling companies of any size to build and manage cloud-scale infrastructures easily and efficiently.
