A technology-leading Fortune 100 company has deployed over 30,000 Supermicro MicroBlade disaggregated servers, at its Silicon Valley data center facility with a Power Use Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.06, to support the company’s growing compute needs. Compared to a traditional data center running at 1.49 PUE, or more, the new datacenter achieves an 88% improvement in overall energy efficiency. When the build out is complete at a 35 megawatt IT load power, the company is targeting $13.18M in savings per year in total energy costs across the entire datacenter.
The Supermicro MicroBlade system represents an entirely new type of computing platform. It is a powerful and flexible extreme-density 3U or 6U all-in-one total system that features 14 or 28 hot-swappable MicroBlade Server blades. The system delivers 86% improvement in power/cooling efficiency with common shared infrastructure, 56 percent system density improvement and lowers initial investment versus 1U servers. The solution has 280 Intel Xeon processor-servers per rack and achieves 45 percent to 65 percent hardware CAPEX savings per refresh cycle with this rack scale design.
