FatTwin is designed based on the company’s patented Twin Architecture
Server technology and green computing firm Super Micro Computer has launched FatTwin, a new server platform based on its Twin Architecture.
The new platform offers a new computing application for Data Center, Cloud Computing, Enterprise IT, Big Data and HPC applications delivering enhanced performance and technologies.
Twin architecture integrates independent systems side-by-side in a single chassis, multiplies compute density while reducing application costs through shared resources such as the chassis, fans, power supplies, cabling and rack mount hardware.
Super Micro’s Twin architecture incorporates airflow optimised designs, air-shrouds and streamlined cabling which reduces fan speeds and power consumption resulting in improved power utilisation and overall energy efficiency.
The platform is optimised for process intensive database driven applications including Big Data and Hadoop analytics, gas and oil exploration, computational finance, search engines, design and modeling, simulation and many other applications.
FatTwin is available in 8 DP node and 4 DP node SKUs with dual Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 series support.
Supermicro president and CEO Charles Liang said energy consumption is one of the greatest challenges facing Data Centers as computing demands increase around the world.
"Supermicro is addressing this growing challenge by developing new generation server technologies such as FatTwin which maximizes performance with support of up to 135W processors while eliminating costly air-conditioning and cooling methods,"Liang said.
"The innovation of FatTwin is in its high-density, airflow optimized design that integrates up to eight dual-processor nodes in a standard 4U rackmount server and operates at temperatures up to 47 degrees C."
