Supermicro MicroBlade Powers One of the World’s Most Energy Efficient Data Centers

Fortube 100 Case Study

Published March 2017

Supermicro MicroBlade is a compact and flexible all-in-one system that supports 14 hot-swappable server blades in 3U and 280 Intel Xeon processor based servers in a 9 foot (60U) rack, the highest server density in the industry.

A Fortune 100 Company has deployed over 30,000 Supermicro MicroBlade disaggregated Intel Xeon processor based servers at its Silicon Valley data center, one of the world’s most energy efficient data centers with a PUE of 1.06, to support its growing compute needs.

With high-efficiency shared power and cooling for the entire enclosure, integrated network switches and a single out-of-band management Ethernet cable for all 14 blades, microblade system lowers overall IT operating costs and improves data center space utilisation by 56% compared to the incumbent solution.
