Tylersburg / Nehalem SolutionsSupermicro Ultra / UIO (Universal I/O) / WIO Solutions

Supermicro Ultra/WIO/UIO servers allow users to select from a wide range of I/O options to provide the ultimate in storage and networking flexibility. When installed, a Supermicro UIO card becomes part of the serverboard, and the system still retains all of its PCI-Express and PCI-X slots for expansion cards. In addition to enabling customizable configurations and optimization for a wide range of application requirements, Supermicro WIO/UIO servers also provide cost advantages and investment protection.

Future upgrades can be achieved by replacing the WIO/UIO card and/or expansion cards instead of replacing entire systems. Without any WIO/UIO or expansion cards, a WIO/UIO system functions as a cost-effective server. With a WIO/UIO card installed, one WIO/UIO server supports SAS/SATA RAID5, 4Gbit Ethernet, 10Gbit Ethernet, or Infiniband. This versatility minimizes the number of servers customers require to operate their business.
