Supermicro– Global leader in high performance, high efficiency server technology and innovation


In the real-world, virtual environments fit a very specific niche, and in no way should dominate the datacenter. Security is implemented at the machine level and kept quite simple. The network is usually relatively easy to administer; it's a part-time job for a member of the group. There are no complex interactions between servers, so it is easy to identify failures they're either on the client or on the local server.

Supermicro is the leading innovator in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology is a premier provider of advanced Server Building Block Solutions for Data Center, Cloud Computing, Enterprise IT, Hadoop/Big Data, HPC and Embedded Systems worldwide. Supermicro is committed to protecting the environment through its "We Keep IT Green®" initiative and provides customers with the most energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly solutions available on the market. As a global leader in high performance, high-efficiency server technology, and innovation the firm develops and provides end-to-end green computing solutions to the data center, cloud computing, enterprise IT, big data, HPC, and embedded markets.

Supermicro's Resource-Saving Architecture

IT managers are increasingly seeking out suppliers of high performance, cost-effective, and energy-efficient Green IT products. Their primary objective is to reduce skyrocketing data center operational costs, a large proportion of which are energy-related costs. As these energy costs continue to escalate, users will need to spend significantly more to power and cool their server hardware than they require purchasing it.

Supermicro's Resource-Saving Architecture continues the tradition of leading the market with Green IT innovation that helps the environment as well as provides TCO savings for its customers. To maximize the impact, the firm has introduced an overall architecture that optimizes data center power, cooling, and shared resources and refreshes cycles. This innovative approach focuses on reusing system enclosures, enabling the modular refresh of subsystems and using optimized extended life subsystems, including networking, storage, cooling, fans, and power supplies. By disaggregating CPU and memory, each resource can be refreshed independently allowing data centers to reduce refresh cycle costs.
