This review is from: SUPERMICRO AS-2022TG-HiBQRF 2U Rackmount Server Barebone (Four nodes) Dual Socket G34 AMD SR5670 DDR3 1333/1066/800
Pros: Great idea, better granularity than standard blades with regard to power, and can run on a single 110V/15 AMP circuit at full load (as opposed to the dual 220 single phase 30+ amp circuits required by the standard 7U blade units. Good network connectivity, built in management module. Redundant power supplies (1400W).
Haven't had hands on with this one yet though.
Cons: Not for the new builder. Would like to see an additional ethernet NIC per node (so iSCSI SANs can employ MPIO). and put general network access on a 3rd general purpose NIC.
Other Thoughts: Just a note that per the supermicro website, use processors with max acp <=80W. The HE series would be optimal as they adjust power consumption automatically depending on load.
Like most rackmount servers, do not use heat sinks with built in fans as these will usually not provide adequate cooling.
The supermicro site states that these come with an infiniband controller for those who like a fiber mesh SAN arrays.
