Overview

Highlights

  • Powerful and flexible extreme-density 3U or 6U all-in-one blade architecture
  • Density optimized designs for up to 4 independent UP nodes per blade server
  • Up to 86% in power efficiency and 56% in density improvements*
    * When compared standard 1U rackmount servers

Innovations

  • Resource Saving Architecture
    A shared cooling, power and networking infrastructure is key to the extraordinary density and efficiency offered by blade servers. MicroBlade takes our resource saving vision even further with Supermicro's innovative Disaggregated Server Design that enables the independent upgrades of the compute modules without replacing the rest of the server infrastructure for optimal TCO.
  • Extremely High Density
    The MicroBlade family offers the best server density for up to 112x 1-socket Atom nodes, up to 56x 1-socket Xeon processor nodes, and up to 28 2-socket Xeon processor nodes in 6U. It can be effortlessly deployed at scale and provisioned in volume with its data center friendly features and designs, including free-air cooling, Battery Backup Power (BBP®), Supermicro RSD with Redfish RESTful APIs, redundant AC or DC power supply options, and more.
  • Blade Network Manager
    The Supermicro Blade Network Manager (BNM) is a part of Supermicro’s blade management software suite designed to reduce IT management overhead and manual networking configuration errors within a MicroBlade or SuperBlade enclosure. BNM offers a single-pane-of-glass to monitor and manage the networking configurations across multiple SuperBlade and MicroBlade enclosures in a data center environment. It provides an overview of the networking topology from each blade server’s perspective and helps to easily manage the Ethernet Blade switches and to diagnose networking configuration issues.
