Dual 40Gb/s InfiniBand, 10GbE switches and dual 1/10GbE switches in one 7U enclosure
Super Micro Computer (Supermicro), a provider of server technology and green computing, has launched two new AMD Opteron 6100 Series processor-based SuperBlade modules.
The new TwinBlade and a new 4-way blade, and both modules are optimised to support the latest 12-core AMD Opteron 6100 Series (Socket G34) processors for up to 2,880 CPU cores in a standard 42U rack.
The new TwinBlade doubles the number of dual-processor compute nodes per 7U enclosure to 20 and based on the SBA-7222G-T2 blade supporting the latest AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors it delivers performance-per-dollar and performance-per-square-foot.
The company said that when powered by new 12-core AMD Opteron 6100 Series (Socket G34) processors, the TwinBlade enables up to 2,880 processing cores, 240 SATA drives and 15TB of DDR3 memory per 42U rack.
The TwinBlade features dual 40Gb/s InfiniBand, FCoE or 10GbE switches and dual 1/10GbE switches in one 7U enclosure, that provides the highest performing I/O throughput and scalability.
The SuperBlade features quad-processor blades for maximum density, performance, scalability and flexibility and with up to 10 four-socket server blades within a single 7U enclosure, this new 4-way SuperBlade SBA-7142G-T4 also supports up to 2,880 AMD Opteron processor cores, 240 SATA drives and 15TB of DDR3 memory per 42U rack.
Supermicro president and CEO Charles Liang said the company’s twin architecture not only doubles the number of nodes in a single blade enclosure but also improves the performance-per-watt, providing an excellent offering for datacentre, cloud computing and HPC applications.
