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.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
