Supermicro is a global innovator and provider of standard and custom IT solutions for data center, enterprise and cloud customers. Founded in 1993 to provide the industry-leading motherboard, server, and storage technology to the emerging micro-server platform.
Supermicro has steadily increased its R&D investments over time. For every dollar spent on a motherboard controller Supermicro invests nearly two dollars more in software, tools, and other development-related efforts.HPC server technology, such as the Supermicro X9SCM-F motherboard connectable with Intel Xeon E5-2600 and E5-2600 v3 processors, has been specifically designed for HPC applications. The Supermicro X10SDV motherboard is a standard motherboard that can be upgraded to HPC server technology.
Supermicro’s customers include data centers, enterprises, cloud providers, and OEMs offering this technology for their products. The 64-bit Supermicro X10SDV Server Board combines enhanced connectivity for scalable storage and support for multiple CPUs/nodes using Intel Xeon D processors or compatible processors that provide additional I/O ports, PCI-Express slots, local SAS ports, and 10 gigabit Ethernet controllers.
HPC cluster and HPC application hardware manufacturers, including HP, Dell, SGI, and Cray, can use Supermicro’s motherboards and server solutions to build HPC architecture.

The company also announced that it had begun mass production of its new 12-core Intel Xeon processor-based server board. The Supermicro X10DAi is an entry-level motherboard that can be used to build multi-CPU, multi-node HPC cluster servers. It features an Intel C612 chipset and supports a maximum of two Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 v3 with up to 12 cores each. It also includes DDR4 memory channels supporting up to 1TB of memory per socket.
High-density server boards and motherboards are a crucial element of Supermicro’s product strategy. The company introduced the X9DAi HPC motherboard in October 2013, before the release of v 4.0 of Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 specifications, which is lower than the previous generation of processors.
Super Micro Computer Limited announced it had completed its Series B financing round with participation from existing investors Accel Partners and Sutter Hill Ventures. As part of the funding round, Accel Partners’ investment arm Accel Venture Partners will manage Super Micro’s existing US$60 million in seed funding and provide additional capital to support ongoing growth opportunities in Super Micro’s target markets.
The data center server industry is booming, and the increased demand for high-end servers has created a tremendous opportunity for Super Micro to continue to expand its presence in this marketplace. The company’s strong customer base, including tier one original design manufacturers (OEMs) and value-added resellers (VARs), coupled with its reputation for product innovation and development, positions Super Micro well to capitalize on projected growth in the area.
The funding will augment the company’s R&D investments and expand into new product lines such as network processing units, storage arrays, and high-performance computing systems.
