"Intel delivers a broad set of technologies to serve a variety of workloads most efficiently.  From low-power Intel Atom SoCs to high-performance Intel Xeon processors, these technologies allow our customers to offer highly customized solutions for end-users," said Shannon Poulin, Intel vice-president and general manager of Data Center Group marketing. "Supermicro is taking maximum advantage of these innovations to offer their customers compelling solutions optimized for today's diverse set of application workloads, space and budgetary requirements."

The 6U 112-node MicroBlade is an extreme-density, ultra energy-efficient micro server system featuring ultra low power Intel® Atom™ C2000 series SoC processors (up to 8-cores). This modular Blade architecture maximizes rack utilization with 112 independent power-conserving nodes (as low as 10W each) enabling up to 784 servers per 42U rack. The MicroBlade enclosure incorporates dual Chassis Management Modules (CMM) and up to four Ethernet switch modules. The switch modules, Intel® Ethernet Microserver Switch Module FM5224, were co-developed by Intel and Supermicro and utilize the Intel Ethernet Switch FM5224 which offers advanced features such as 400nS cut-through latency, advanced load balancing and network overlay tunneling support. The FM5224 switch module features SDN functionality and includes an Intel Atom C2000 control plane processor and can support up to 2x 40Gb/s QSFP or 8x 10Gb/s SFP+ uplinks and 56x 2.5Gb/s downlinks per module, reducing cabling by 99%. Up to eight hot-swappable redundant (N+1 or N+N) 1600W Platinum-Level high-efficiency (95%) digital power supplies and heavy duty cooling fans are also integrated into the rear of the enclosure. This new innovative server targets Cloud, collocation, dedicated hosting, Web front end, video streaming, CDN, download service, and Social Networking applications. Performance oriented UP and DP configurations supporting Intel® Xeon® processors will be available in the next few months.
