Supermicro Launches 10 in. -Depth 1U Server Solutions

SC502, 503 & 510 Series Chassis for SOHO, Appliance & Embedded Servers

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 4 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMCI), a leader in application optimized high performance server solutions, has launched its smallest and quietest 1U server chassis. These SC502, SC503 and SC510 series ultra-short depth 1U chassis operate at less than 35 decibels (dBA) making them ideal solutions for small office or home office (SOHO), appliance, and embedded servers.

"These new chassis are perfect for SOHO, appliance and embedded environments that demand smaller and quieter servers," said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. "Finding space for a 1U server that is only 11.3 inches deep is easy, and for those who want an even smaller solution, our SC502 and SC503 chassis are just 9.8 inches!"

Engineered to generate minimal noise, these chassis all feature a new 200-watt high-efficiency power supply with thermal fan speed control. Optimized for Supermicro's X7SBL, PDSBM and PDSML series motherboards, these solutions deliver super-quiet operation at less than 35dBA*.

With a depth of 9.8 inches, the SC502 and SC503 chassis are optimized for low-voltage processors up to 35 watts using Supermicro's optimally designed active heat sinks. Both chassis can support either one 3.5-inch hard drive or up to two 2.5-inch hard drives (optional) or even one full-height PCI add-on card (optional). The SC503 features front I/O port access, while the SC502 has rear I/O ports.

At 11.3 inches deep, the SC510 chassis supports Intel Core 2 Duo and Xeon 3000 series processors up to 65 watts using specially optimized Supermicro passive heat sinks. The SC510 chassis also includes optional support for up to four 2.5-inch hard drives, providing a small form factor solution for storage applications.
