MicroBlade™ – Power Supplies and Cooling

One of the biggest benefits of moving to a blade environment is the relocation of power supplies and fans into a single chassis versus an individual set in each server. This greatly helps reduce the power requirements on a per server basis.

Underlining Supermicro's high-efficiency power philosophy into the MicroBlade server technology, Supermicro engineers have mastered the power supply design challenge to produce high-quality, high-performance solutions with peak efficiency ratings of 96%. Supermicro solutions continue to outperform and outlast the competition and providing the best technology investment available to customers.

Key Advantages of Supermicro High-efficiency Blade Power Supplies

  • Availability – Non-stop power with N+1 or N+N up to 8 redundant power supply modules
  • Cost Saving – At 96% peak efficiency, power consumption is significantly reduced, providing a planet-friendly, real-world advantage for our environment.
  • Investment Protection – Power capacity headroom for future generation processors
  • Easy Installation – Snap-in installation from the back of the chassis; hot-swappable in operation
  • Intelligent Power Infrastructure – Each power enclosure includes a power management module that monitors the power supplies and the power enclosure that connects to the blade management.
