Computex 2014 - Supermicro's booth was buzzing with activity as they displayed its diverse line of products at Computex 2014. Perhaps most impressive were high density server designs that provide a ton of compute muscle in a small footprint.
The 6U 112-node MicroBlade Server is a good example of maximizing rack space for datacenter and hyperscale applications. This impressive box features 28 hot-swap micro blades. Each blade holds four nodes that house an 8-core processor.
Each blade holds four 8-core Intel C2000 processors, RAM, and storage. The beauty of the design lies in the shared power, networking, and cooling in the rear of the unit.
8 1600W power supplies provide power to the 112 CPU's. 10GbE and 40GbE network connections line the rear of the unit.
