Supermicro® Debuts New 720TB 4U 90x 3.5” Top-Load Hot-Swap, SAS3 12Gb/s HDD SuperStorage® JBOD PlatformWide Array of Server, Blade, Storage, and Networking Solutions Offer Increased Performance, Density, and Energy Efficiency Optimized for Production and Distribution of HD, 4K/8K UHD Digital Media

Las Vegas, NV—April 13, 2015 – Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology, and green computing debuts its new extreme density 4U 90x hot-swap bay SuperStorage platform alongside a wide range of high performance server, storage and networking solutions for the Broadcast Media Industry this week at NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new 4U JBOD storage chassis supports up to 90x 3.5” 8TB HDDs for 720TB of SAS3, 12Gb/s performance in an easily serviceable top-load hot-swap architecture. Dual hot-swap expander modules featuring 4x Mini-SAS HD ports maximize throughput and failover redundancy for media streaming, nearline and archive storage applications. With 4K 60p Ultra High-Definition hitting mainstream and 8K 120p UHD on the horizon, all aspects of broadcast media production, from capture, editing, and CG/VFX, to encoding/transcoding, streaming and archiving will drive demand for the most extreme levels of compute, storage and network performance.

“Supermicro Green Computing solutions address the most extreme digital workload challenges facing the Broadcast industry with maximum performance, density, and energy efficiency,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “Solutions such as our new 4U 90 top-load hot-swap 3.5” HDD SuperStorage or 1U 12x 3.5” direct attached 10GbE storage are unrivaled in density, performance and scalability for uncompressed media. And our 1U 4x GPU systems deliver the raw compute power for visual effects, rendering and transcoding. As the entertainment industry shifts to UHD media, Supermicro has exactly the best compute, storage, and network solutions available for studios to achieve lowest TCO through optimum performance per watt, per square foot, per dollar.”

Supermicro NAB Show 2015 highlights include Blackmagic Design, DaVinci Resolve running on the Blackmagic Design certified, GPU accelerated SYS-7048GR-TR, and full range of server, blade, storage and networking solutions optimized for digital content creation, production, management, and distribution.
