SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing announces it is shipping a new multi-processor (MP) 4-Way X10 SuperServer (SYS-4048B-TRFT) optimized for extreme data intensive applications in the Enterprise. This high-performance, high-capacity server takes full advantage of the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800 v2 advances and provides architecture innovations such as dual-zone cooling to support the highest performance (155 watt TDP) processors. This system features 96x DIMM slots supporting up to 6TB DDR3 1600MHz Reg. ECC R/LRDIMMs, up to 48x 2.5" hot-swap HDD/SSDs, 12Gb/s SAS3 backplane, 11x PCI-E 3.0 slots, dual 10GBase-T ports plus 1x dedicated LAN port for IPMI 2.0 remote monitoring and redundant (2+2) 1620W hot-swappable Platinum Level high-efficiency power supplies. With high memory capacity and flexible I/O expansion, this platform is ideal for deployment in Data Center, virtualization and mission critical Enterprise applications. To ensure customers the fastest deployment time, these servers will be sold as complete solutions with testing and validation of CPUs, memory and additional components prior to ship.
