SeaMicro Named a Most Promising Private Green Tech Company by AlwaysOn GoingGreen

Company to Participate in GoingGreen 2011 Conference in San Francisco

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - SeaMicro™, the Silicon Valley pioneer of low power server technology, today announced its inclusion on the AlwaysOn GoingGreen Global 200 list of promising private green tech companies, and its participation in GoingGreen 2011 on September 27 in San Francisco. SeaMicro was selected from thousands of domestic and international green technology companies by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. The competing companies were nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and green tech industry insiders.

"That the world's financial leaders and industry experts would name SeaMicro as a top green tech company is a tremendous vote of confidence for our game changing technology," said Andrew Feldman, CEO, SeaMicro. "The SM-10000 family of energy efficient servers is designed to reduce the power consumed by servers by 75 percent. We are proud to be honored for our innovations in the field of green IT, and are looking forward to participating in conversations with leaders in the field."

"Picking this year's GoingGreen Global 200 was a very competitive process, as literally dozens of great green tech companies are emerging out of the pack, raising big money, and gaining significant market traction," says Tony Perkins, Founder and Editor, AlwaysOn. "This year's winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we've seen in the private company marketplace and underscore that many of the green tech sectors VCs have been betting on are booming."

SeaMicro's low power server technology is revolutionizing the data center with its SM10000™ server family -- which uses a quarter of the power and a sixth of the space of traditional servers without requiring any change to existing software. The new SM10000-64HD integrates 768 64-bit x86 Intel Atom cores, top of rack Ethernet switching, server management, and application load balancing in a single 10 RU "plug and play" standards-based server.

In the US, servers consume 2.25 percent of the total energy. And, this number is doubling every seven years. SeaMicro's energy efficient servers can dramatically reduce power consumption nationwide. In the US alone, SeaMicro servers could reduce power consumption by 29.3 billion kilowatt hours per year and reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses by 12.8 million metric tons of Co2 per year.

SeaMicro and the GoingGreen Global 200 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's GoingGreen Silicon Valley event on September 27, 2011, at San Francisco City Hall. At the conference, SeaMicro Founder and Vice President of Product Management and Product Marketing Anil Rao will be speaking on a panel titled "Saving Our Resources & Energy," which will take place at 2:30 p.m. that day.
