Featuring the Supermicro TwinBlade

The Supermicro TwinBlade is the most technologically advanced blade server system in the industry. Supporting up to 120 DP servers with 240 Intel® Xeon® 5600/5500 series processors per 42U rack, the TwinBlade achieves an unmatched 0.35U per DP node. With N+1 redundant, high efficiency (94%) 2500W power supplies, the TwinBlade is the Greenest, most energy-efficient blade server in the industry. Networking options include up to two 4x QDR(40 Gbps) InfiniBand switches, up to two 1/10GbE or 10GbE switches, and/or a 1GbE pass-through mdoule. They give the TwinBlade the bandwidth to support the most demanding applications. Onboard IPMI 2.0 with KVM over IP and remote Virtual Media over LAN enables ease of management and control.
