“Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking and green IT solutions, is adding a new facility to its headquarters campus in San Jose, California, USA. In this integrated campus, customers have access to an on-premises data center to develop, test, and create, in collaboration with Supermicro engineers, the optimal balance of on-premises, disposition, and public cloud workload scenarios; all optimized for the business challenges of the future. The new facility covers an area of over 18,500 square meters and is the latest addition to Supermicro’s green IT park. The site will provide a command center to support new and innovative solutions that meet the diverse needs of customers around the world.
New technologies, like artificial intelligence and machine learning (IA/AM), 5G Edge and on-premises cloud software and hardware, can be quickly incorporated and tested for the most demanding workloads. Supermicro’s headquarters in Silicon Valley comprises more than 12 buildings, in an area of more than 140,000 square meters, dedicated to engineering, manufacturing and customer service.We are excited to add the B23 with its command center and auto-configurator at the heart of Silicon Valley to support our partners in the enterprise and in the cloud,” said President and CEO Charles Liang.
“Founded 28 years ago in the United States, Supermicro is one of the world’s leading server and storage companies. We offer exactly the best products and services to our customers and we continue to expand our solution offerings to meet infrastructure requirements for a wide range of The new facility will focus on total IT solutions, including software, advanced liquid cooling system, test systems, plug and play (PnP) equipment assembly and programming, leveraging our proven server and storage solutions. Marketplace.”
In addition, the new facility will generate clean fuel cell-based electricity with two MW being supplied entirely from natural gas through the use of Bloom Energy servers, adding these to Supermicro’s current use of Bloom Energy servers. The unit is designated a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) facility for efficient use of resources by using less water and energy.
“I’m excited that Supermicro will continue to expand its green IT park in Silicon Valley with the addition of a new manufacturing facility,” said Sam Liccardo , Mayor of San Jose. “For 28 years, Supermicro’s jobs, innovation and advanced technologies have contributed tremendously to our economy in Silicon Valley and enabled the success of thousands of global customers.”
The new facility is dedicated to mounting large volumes of clusters and racks, where water cooling for server systems may be required as part of the solution. With the growing demand for Supermicro products, a new facility was required to ensure timely delivery of large orders containing the most advanced technology. In addition, the new Rack Plug and Play programSupermicro will require the rapid delivery of defined solutions that need to be tested as an entire unit, requiring a large preparation area. These systems achieve the highest level of integration and server manufacturing testing, the L12. With dedicated physical space, the Rack Integration Services team (testing, assembly and programming of equipment) can work on different systems from several customers simultaneously, increasing the productivity of service provision. By combining R&D, manufacturing and engineering solutions in one location, service delivery to customers is accelerated by providing them with advanced technology early to solve complex IT challenges.
