NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana and ST ALBANS, England, November 15, 2010
/PRNewswire/ — Boston Limited, now in its 18th year as a distribution
partner for Silicon Valley-based Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI),
today has formally announced the launch of their next generation of blade
server solutions, the groundbreaking new Boston SuperFlex Blade(TM).

Designed in partnership with Supermicro, the SuperFlex Blade(TM) brings
to the industry a new dimension of energy efficient hybrid parallel compute
processing power for technical and enterprise computing. SuperFlex Blade(TM)
platforms have been optimised to offer a new dimension in flexibility for
Blade Servers by providing 2 x PCI-Express x 16 expansion slots per blade
with support for dual full-length and double-height expansion cards.

“Building off the success of the 1U GPU Superserver, the new SuperFlex
Blade delivers high density GPU computing in a highly flexible and scalable
solution,” said Sumit Gupta, Manager of Tesla products at NVIDIA. “Through
our collaboration with Boston and Supermicro, this solution takes full
advantage of the massive computational power of Tesla GPUs and provides
exceptional performance across a wide range of demanding applications.”

Optimised for hybrid computing, the SuperFlex Blade(TM) is suitable for
the most demanding applications requiring high-speed and high-density
processing with maximized GPU and CPU compute performance. High performance
networking has also been optimised with two independent, high-bandwidth,
low-latency onboard QDR InfiniBand controllers standard to ensure that this
platform is suitable for today’s most resource-hungry computing challenges.

“The Boston SuperFlex Blade has been jointly developed with Supermicro to
solve the key scalability and usability challenges that face customers in
high performance computing (HPC) environments. Using the standard Supermicro
10-bay blade enclosure, it offers unparalleled compute density when equipped
with two double-width GPU accelerators,” says Manoj Nayee, Managing Director
of Boston Limited.

Designed to meet the most demanding applications computing challenges,
the SuperFlex Blade(TM) provides phenomenal levels of hybrid computational
power by combining the latest technologies made available by Intel Xeon 5600
processors in conjunction with the latest generation of NVIDIA(R) Tesla(TM)
2050 and 2070 GPU compute processors for maximum computational performance.

“This new GPU-optimized blade design offers a much higher level of
computing performance, density and performance-per-watt,” said Wally Liaw,
Vice President of Sales-International at Supermicro. “By supporting up to
twenty GPU cards in one 7U blade enclosure, this solution easily delivers the
highest GPU density available today in a blade form factor.”
