Supermicro SuperStorage Solutions offer hot, warm and cold storage tiers on a single best-in-class product family

San Jose, California, May 23, 2017 – Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in compute, storage and networking technologies including green computing, wins the Computex Best Choice Award for its capacity maximized, top loading 60-Bay, 4U SuperStorage offerings.

The award, presented by the Taipei Computer Association, focuses on Functionality, Innovation and Market Potential. The Supermicro top loading, 60-Bay 4U SuperStorage represents all three well. It’s the only 60-bay storage server supporting NVMe SSDs (6 x U.2) for I/O intensive meta-data operations, highest performance CPU, largest memory with 24 DIMMs, on-board M.2 SSDs, HA boot drives, and wide range networking choices with Supermicro Super I/O Module (SIOM) cards. Deploying and servicing the 60-bay SuperStorage products are extremely easy with tool-less chassis design, tool-less drive carriers, out-of-band management through IPMI 2.0 with dedicated LAN port, Supermicro RSD support, and a built-in front panel LCD display for fast system and disk diagnostics. As a mainstay in Supermicro capacity maximized, top loading storage product family, 60-Bay storage offerings are optimized for the most demanding software-defined storage applications and especially popular among cloud service providers and large internet data center customers.

“Winning the Best Choice award confirms our ability to anticipate market demands. Our family of 45, 60 and 90 bay capacity optimized, top loading storage product family offer the broadest range of solutions for Software Defined Storage,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “One 42U rack of 60-Bay top loading storage products would support more than 7PB of storage capacity providing a powerful, multi-tiered high density storage platform for today’s data hungry web scale applications.”
