Supermicro® Expands Range of Energy Efficient VDI Server Solutions for NVIDIA GRID

- New Enterprise-Class GRID K1/K2 SuperServers Offer Customers More Configurations for Optimized Performance, Scalability and TCO

SAN JOSE, California, Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing offers the industry's widest range of enterprise-class VDI server solutions optimized for NVIDIA GRID™ graphics-accelerated virtual desktops and applications. With high-performance virtual GPU technology enabling a new era in server-side computing, it is increasingly important to select platforms that provide optimal cooling alongside power-efficiency to maximize compute density and overall reliability. Supermicro's years of design and engineering expertise have yielded high-density GPU server platforms that offer the widest variety of flexible configurations in 1U, 2U, 4U/Tower, FatTwin™ and SuperBlade® computing solutions. The company's new NVIDIA GRID based server solutions take advantage of this to maximize user density and provide an uncompromised user experience in large scale virtualized environments. These application optimized systems deliver maximum productivity for Knowledge Workers and Power Users (GRID K1) or accelerated compute performance for Engineers and Designers (GRID K2). For a limited time (through January 31, 2014) and while supplies last*, Supermicro is offering a trial system discount on select NVIDIA GRID based VDI server solutions at www.supermicro.com/GRID_VDI. Additional systems supporting NVIDIA GRID K1/K2 include the new 4U 8x GPU SuperServer® (SYS-4027GR-TR) and 2x GPU SuperBlade® (SBI-7127RG-E) supporting 20x GPUs + 20x CPUs per 7U.

"Supermicro provides Enterprise and Cloud Data Center customers with the best and widest range of energy efficient, performance optimized server solutions to help lower overall TCO and increase profit margins," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "As computing resources and applications shift from office environments to the Data Center, IT experts that employ Supermicro systems like our high-density 1U 4x GPU SuperServer or cooling and resource optimized 4U FatTwin will win big. Our extensive selection of NVIDIA GRID certified platforms are exactly optimized for any scale application or virtualized workload, ensuring companies receive maximum performance per watt, per dollar, per square foot from their investment."
