SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Super Micro Computer, Inc.(NASDAQ:SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high performance server solutions, today unveiled new high-end 1U and 2U chassis optimized for 2.5" SAS and SATA hard disk drives. The SC113, SC213 and SC216 series chassis support 8, 16 or 24 hot-swappable 2.5" SAS/SATA hard disk drives respectively, which effectively doubles the number of available drives per system. All chassis feature Supermicro's new advanced design high-efficiency (up to 90%*) power supplies.

"These new optimized chassis solutions combine our high-efficiency power supply technology with the energy-saving advantages of 2.5" disk drives; customers can save as much as $400** from Supermicro system efficiency over the life of the product plus hundreds of dollars more from the additional 50% power savings per drive," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "Besides these power savings, the smaller size and corresponding lower latency of the drives enables these chassis to deliver 130 to 150 percent greater system performance in the same footprint."
