Supermicro® Real Time Computing and Visualization Solutions for Broadcast Media and UHD 4K/8K on Exhibit at NAB 2014

Press release date: April 7, 2014

Highlights include Extreme Performance 4U 8x GPU SuperServer for NVIDIA® Iray VCA, 4U 4-Way 6TB SuperServer® and High Bandwidth 12Gb/s SAS3 SuperStorage Solutions

LAS VEGAS - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing brings its latest extreme computing and storage solutions to the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the spotlight will be Supermicro's latest Visual Computing Appliance, the NVIDIA® Iray VCA, an 4U 8x GPU SuperServer® (SYS-4027GR-TR) that delivers unprecedented rendering speed and performance using eight of NVIDIA's most powerful GPUs for extremely interactive photo-realistic pre-visualization of computer models and final frame rendering of the highest fidelity. For large memory-intensive editing projects, Supermicro's new multi-processor (MP) 4U 4-Way SuperServer® (SYS-4048B-TRFT) takes full advantage of quad Intel® Xeon® E7-8800/4800 v2 (155 watt TDP) processors and supports up to 6TB in 96x DIMM slots, up to 48x 2.5" hot-swap HDD/SSDs, 12Gb/s SAS3, 11x PCI-E 3.0 slots and dual 10GBase-T ports for unleashed productivity. 4U 12x GPU FatTwin(TM) and 7U SuperBlade® 30x GPU platforms offer maximum compute performance for high density, highly scalable render farm clusters and applications. In addition, the new 2U Cluster-in-a-Box (CiB) SuperStorage server (SSG-2027B-CIB020H) offers 20TB raw storage capacity in 24x hot-swap 2.5" SAS1/SAS2 drive bays populated with 4x SSDs and 20x 1TB nearline SAS HDDs. This solution is Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Standard certification for easy deployment and can cascade up to four Supermicro JBODs (16x 3.5" hot-swap bays) to support over 400TB of performance tiered high availability storage for the most demanding, mission critical media production applications.  For extreme storage requirements Supermicro will also exhibit its ultra high density/capacity 4U 90x hot-swap 3.5" HDD/SSD bay (SC847DE26-R2K02JBOD) Double-Sided Storage® JBOD solution. With the explosive demand for HD and UHD 4K/8K digital media rising Supermicro has the widest range of complete server and storage solutions optimized for end to end acquisition, production and global distribution applications.

"Supermicro is the leading source for complete server and storage solutions optimized to meet critical infrastructure needs across the broadcast and entertainment media ecosystem," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "Our extreme performance systems are unrivaled in the industry featuring up to 12x GPUs in the 2 node 4U FatTwin and full range of 1U rack mount to 7U Blade form factors for ultra high definition media, CG and VFX production. Our high capacity, wide bandwidth storage solutions are always first to market with the most advanced performance and data protection technologies available such as 12Gb/s SAS3, NVMe and CiB fail-safe redundancy for maximum workflow productivity. As compute and storage needs rapidly increase in the media broadcast industry, Supermicro has the latest most cost effective solutions ready to scale on demand."
