Server distributor Boston has used the SuperComputing conference in Reno, Nevada to launch a SuperMicro liquid-cooled SuperCool 1U Twin server utilising Intelís 5400 (Seaburg) based Chipset.
The SuperServer 6015TW-TS features 2 DP nodes in a 1U form factor and supports the latest Quad Core (Harpertown) and Dual Core (Wolfdale) series processors from Intel (Xeon 5400 / 5300LV/ 5200/ 5100LV).
The SuperServer utilised a single high efficiency power supply and achieves highly dense computing efficiencies by placing two nodes in a 1U space. Boston has engineered further efficiency savings by applying liquid cooling technology, thereby lowering CPU core temperatures, removing air cooled fans where no longer required and lowering power consumption.
"Our tests show that Boston Ltd's SuperServer 6015TW-TS reduces power consumption by over 30 per cent compared to rival server solutions and doubles the rack installation density by removing much of the heat dissipation issues arising from dense computing installations," said Manoj Nayee, Director of Boston Limited.
"Our new Intel 5400 (Seaburg) chipset-based motherboards and systems support 1600Mhz system bus speed and Gen 2 PCI-Express for superior performance", said Dev Tyagi, General Manager of Supermicro UK. "Supermicro also is the first in the industry to fully support both 1.8v and 1.5v FBD memory on its entire line of Seaburg solutions."
