  1. It was great to see Supermicro’s continued, impressive array of new servers and storage which continue to help with Big Data applications. This one is impressive:

    • I’m excited to see them gain market share and further infiltrate the top 500 – we use a number of Supermicro servers in house, and are very pleased with their performance.
