Supermicro (SMCI) to Develop AI Datacenter in Asia

Supermicro (NASDAQ:SMCI) is partnering with Datasection, KDDI, Foxconn, and Sharp to establish a large artificial intelligence (AI) data center in Asia. As part of this initiative, SMCI will develop comprehensive IT rack-scale liquid-cooled solutions powered by advanced Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) GPUs.

It’s worth noting that SMCI has made substantial investments in high-quality, optimized direct liquid cooling (DLC) solutions. This positions it well to capitalize on AI demand. For instance, AI systems are becoming increasingly powerful and require effective heat management. Supermicro’s advancements in DLC technology and its expanded production capacity for liquid cooling racks strategically position the company to meet the rising demand.

Innovation and Product Development

Supermicro is renowned for its high-performance server and storage solutions. The company is experiencing significant demand for its AI offerings. Beyond the development of the Asian data center, the company is also focusing on new product launches and diversifying its product portfolio. These efforts are likely to grow its market share and attract new customers.

Recently, Supermicro introduced new servers equipped with AMD’s (NASDAQ:AMD) latest EPYC 4004 processors. These servers are designed for companies seeking cost-effective and compact solutions. Additionally, Supermicro is developing generative AI and inference-optimized systems based on the latest Nvidia and AMD GPUs.

SMCI Set to Maintain Business Momentum

Thanks to the growing demand for its products, SMCI’s revenue soared by about 201% in the third quarter of Fiscal 2024. Moreover, the company’s bottom line registered a year-over-year increase of 308%. Further, SMCI’s leadership said during the Q3 conference call that the company’s backlogs are at a record high, which implies that the momentum in its business will likely be sustained in the upcoming quarters.

According to the TipRanks Stock Analysis tool, “Bulls Say, Bears Say,” analysts bullish on SMCI believe that the demand for AI-related products remains strong, which should benefit Supermicro going forward.

Is SMCI a Good Stock to Buy?
