Market-base expansion with Supermicro servers

Digicor hopes the local release of blade servers from vendor Supermicro, will help resellers reach a slightly broader range of end-users than those traditionally buying blades.

Craig Willis, Auckland-based sales manager of the recently-established distributor, says he has looked at Supermicro’s offering and it appears “well spec-ed” in terms of processors per rack and power supply efficiency, compared to blades by large vendors such as HP and IBM.

He says the blades could help resellers target some medium-size businesses not previously able to afford the servers.

“Those that don’t have that relationship with Dell or IBM can go to those end-users themselves,” he says. “Some blade servers may have been out of their [end users’] reach, but this could open it up to some smaller businesses having that requirement.”

Supermicro blades could suit the education and graphics/animation markets, sectors Digicor is aiming at because they need high processing power.

The servers will initially launch on an Intel platform in a 10-blade configuration, but next quarter there will be AMD and 14-blade versions.

They are expected to ship later in July.
