Global enterprise computing, storage, and networking solutions vendor Supermicro is adding a new facility to its multi-location U.S. headquarters campus in San Jose, California. It will have a Command Center with an Autoconfigurator to support new and creative solutions that cater to the diverse demands of consumers all around the world.
The new building has a floor area of approximately 200,000 square feet and is part of Supermicro’s Green Computing Park expansion. Clients may engage with Supermicro experts at this consolidated campus, utilizing an onsite data center to design, test and implement the proper blend of on-premises, colocation and public cloud workload scenarios tailored for tomorrow’s business challenges.
“We are excited to add B23 with its Command Center and Autoconfigurator in the heart of Silicon Valley to support our cloud and enterprise partners,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “Founded 28 years ago in the U.S., Supermicro is one of the world’s top-tier server and storage companies. We deliver exactly the best products and services to our customers and continue to expand our solution offerings to meet the infrastructure requirements for a wide range of customers. The new site will focus on total IT solutions including software, advanced liquid cooling, rack-level plug and play (PnP) systems leveraging our market-proven server and storage solutions.”
New technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML), 5G Edge and On-Prem Cloud software and hardware may be swiftly included and evaluated for the most demanding applications. The Silicon Valley headquarters of Supermicro has over 12 buildings – over 1.5 million square feet – supporting engineering, production, and customer service.
Supermicro Rack Plug and Play Program
In addition, the new facility will employ Bloom Energy servers to create two MW of clean fuel-cell-based energy from natural gas, which will be added to Supermicro’s current utilization of Bloom Energy servers. A resource-efficient LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) facility, it consumes less water and energy.
As the need for Supermicro products grew, a new facility was required to ensure that big orders containing the most cutting-edge technology were delivered on schedule. Water cooling for server systems may be a required in the new facility’s large-scale cluster and rack assembly.
Additionally, the new Supermicro Rack Plug and Play program will necessitate quick delivery of specified systems that must be evaluated as a whole unit, necessitating a large staging space. L12 is the greatest degree of server integration and testing achieved by these systems. The Rack Integration Services team can work on many multi-rack clients’ systems at once thanks to the dedicated floor space. Clients would benefit from faster delivery since all R&D, production, and solution engineering functions are located under one roof.
