La piattaforma FatTwin™ di Supermicro® offre il 16% di risparmio energetico e trasforma il panorama dell'High Performance Computing

-- Le nostre innovative ed ecologiche soluzioni di archiviazione e server, in mostra al Supercomputing 2012, aprono nuovi orizzonti all'Exascale Computing

SALT LAKE CITY, 13 novembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), leader globale nella tecnologia dei server ad alte prestazioni ed elevata efficienza e nelle soluzioni di green computing, presenterà la sua ampia gamma di  soluzioni SuperServer®, SuperStorage e di rete ottimizzate per l'high performance computing (HPC) presso il Supercomputing 2012 (SC12) che si terrà a Salt Lake City, Utah, dal 12 al 15 Novembre. Supermicro presenterà anche le sue ultime piattaforme FatTwin, che offrono la più alta densità di archiviazione del settore, con fino a 8 dischi rigidi da 3,5" in 1U, e 12 schede GPU/MIC a doppia larghezza e ad elaborazione altamente parallela in 4U.  La piattaforma FatTwin utilizza risorse condivise e consente un notevole risparmio grazie alle ventole di raffreddamento heavy duty da 8 cm ad alta efficienza energetica, al sistema di ventilazione ottimizzato e agli alimentatori di livello platino (94%+), per un risparmio energetico superiore del 16% rispetto alla concorrenza. L'azienda sta facendo grandi passi avanti nell'innovazione delle sue piattaforme: dai design di ventilazione ottimizzati che supportano temperature ambiente fino a 47° C,  all'impiego estensivo degli economici moduli Supermicro di alimentazione di backup a batteria (Battery Backup Power, BBP™), che sostituiscono i tradizionali sistemi UPS ed offrono fino al 99% di risparmio energetico per applicazioni ad alta disponibilità.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Cloud Computing is evolving into a Big Three of Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Cloud 360: Multi-Cloud Bootcamp, being held Nov 4–5, 2014, in conjunction with 15th Cloud Expo in Santa Clara, CA, delivers a real-world demonstration of how to deploy and configure a scalable and available web application on all three platforms. The Cloud 360 Bootcamp, led by Janakiram MSV, an analyst with Gigaom Research, is the first bootcamp that introduces the core concepts of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) based on the workings of the Big Three platforms – Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, and Azure VMs. Bootcamp attendees will get to see the big picture and also receive the knowledge needed to make the best cloud decisions for their business applications and entire enterprise IT organization.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that allow marketers to cut through the noise and design their campaigns around strong, predictive signals, rather than arbitrary statistics. SendGrid sends up to half a billion emails a day for customers such as Pinterest and GitHub. All this email adds up to more text than produced in the entire twitterverse. We track events like clicks, opens and deliveries to help improve deliverability for our customers – adding up to over 50 billion useful events every month. While SendGrid data covers only abo...

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mac Devine, Distinguished Engineer at IBM, will discuss bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover.
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at 15th Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, Vice President, Product Strategy of LogMeIn's Xively IoT Platform, will show you how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
All too many discussions about DevOps conclude that the solution is an all-purpose player: developer and operations guru, complete with pager for round-the-clock duty. For most organizations that is not the way forward. In his session at DevOps Summit, Bernard Golden, Vice President of Strategy at ActiveState, will discuss how to achieve the agility and speed of end-to-end automation without requiring an organization stocked with Supermen and Superwomen.
