Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has utilized the non-GAAP information set forth below as an additional device to aid in understanding and analyzing its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures will allow for an evaluation of the operating performance of the Company’s business and facilitate meaningful comparison of the results in the current period to those in prior and future periods. Reference to these non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for results that are presented in a manner consistent with GAAP.

A limitation of utilizing these non-GAAP measures is that GAAP accounting does in fact reflect the underlying financial results of the Company’s business. Therefore, management believes that the GAAP measures as well as the corresponding non-GAAP measures of the Company’s financial performance should be considered together.

A reconciliation of the Company’s GAAP net (loss) income for the quarters ended September 30, 2012, and June 30, 2012, to its non-GAAP EBITDA for the same periods are set forth below:

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
