SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, announces a new high-performance, high-capacity storage appliance developed in collaboration with Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) built on Supermicro's 3U 11x PCI-E SuperServer (SYS-6037R-TXRF).
This dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 based platform features up to ten 2.4TB Fusion ioDrive2 Duo (F01-001-2T41-CS-0001) ioMemory products with up to 3GB/s and 935K IOPs leaving an additional PCI-E 2.0 x4 (in x8) slot available for a high-bandwidth network expansion card such as Supermicro's 10GbE or FDR/QDR InfiniBand add-on cards.
For an optimal compute-storage-network architecture where storage density and connectivity is of importance, solutions scale up to eight ioDrive2 Duos and have a minimum 2x 40GbE or FDR/QDR IB ports. This Fusion powered SuperServer also supports 130W CPUs, up to 512GB DDR 1600MHz of memory in 16x DIMMs, 8x hot-swap 3.5" HDD bays, dual GbE LAN (Intel® i350) ports, redundant 980W Platinum Level high-efficiency (94%) power supplies and remote server management via IPMI 2.0.
While the maximum density per RU is unrivaled in the industry for a PCI-E flash-based design, the most impressive characteristics are the flexibility of the architecture – balance between sheer throughput and IOPS – while providing the most energy efficient platform on a watts/performance basis. This joint solution is ideal for a wide array of HPC applications ranging from Financials (HFT, Derivatives trading, Black Scholes model, BGM/LIBOR market model), Government/Military (Search, Risk Analysis, Code/Decode-CODEC) to Oil and Gas exploration (Modeling, Seismic Data Interpretation, 3D Imaging Processing) and BioSciences.
"Supermicro designs solutions such as our 11x PCI-E slot SuperServer for maximum performance, efficiency and expandability and our open platforms create groundbreaking opportunities like this collaboration with Fusion-io," said Wally Liaw, Vice President of Sales, International at Supermicro. "This new ultra high performance 24TB storage solution is the foundation for new products in our pipeline and we are looking forward to incorporate upcoming Fusion-io technologies into select HPC servers for even greater storage density at higher IOPs for the most demanding, cutting edge applications."
"Supermicro's new Fusion powered appliance delivers massive throughput and capacity in a very small footprint for highly efficient application acceleration," said Will Hall, Fusion-io Vice President of OEM Sales. "Fusion-io is pleased to collaborate with Supermicro to deliver this breakthrough in powerful HPC."
For applications that have different compute, networking, storage and form factor requirements, Supermicro has a wide range of 1U, 2U, 4U and 5U SuperServers supporting 1/2/4/8 processor configurations with up to 2TB of main memory and validated Fusion-io products with capacities ranging from 365GB to 5.12TB. This is the widest product offering from any supplier on the market today.

IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
