G34 Motherboards and server solutions

Supermicro, a provider of servers, storage technology and green computing, is shipping new single, dual and quad socket G34 motherboards and server solutions with the latest AMD Opteron 6300 series processors.

Supermicro A+ motherboards, server and SuperBlade solutions are designed to maximise energy efficiency with airflow-optimised designs for best thermal operation and high-efficiency power supplies. These solutions have now been combined with new low power (99W TDP) Opteron 6338P (12-Core) and 6370P (16-Core) processors. The company claims that its A+ G34 platforms deliver up to 27 per cent better performance compared to higher end 6300 series solutions the company claim.

These new server solutions complement existing high-performance Opteron-based product lines with a new range of G34 server platforms designed to be cost-effective and energy efficient.

Features of the new G34 server solutions include 1U single processor servers for the SMB and Enterprise (AS-1012G-MTF), 1U/2U/Twin architecture, dual processor servers (AS-1122G-URF4+, AS-2022G-URF4+, 2U Twin² Series AS-2022TG/2122TG) for high-density, scalable data center, cloud and virtualisation applications and quad processor 1U/2U/4U/Tower/Blade systems (AS-1042G-TF, AS-2042G-TRF/-72RF4, AS-4042G-72RF4, SBA-7222G-T2) for high performance computing (HPC) clusters.
