AMD Huskyboard 96boards Enterprise Edition available soon and the SoftIron Overdrive 3000 ARMv8 64bit server board. AMD also shows what they are doing for NFV Network Function Virtualization, developing solutions to power advanced networking.

CERN CMS tests 64bit ARM Servers for worldwide grid scientific computing

Posted by Charbax – October 16, 2015

David Abdurachmanov of Fermilab works in Geneva at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, testing all the latest different 64bit ARM Server platforms to measure when they may be recommended to be used by up to hundreds of computing centers around the world, potentially deployed to hundreds of thousands of servers to crunch large amounts of scientific data worldwide. The GRID of Computing resources analyses scientific data for experiments in high energy physics, to find proof that the Higgs Boson exists, at the core of understanding how the world is made. These scientific server grids must be built at optimal cost to consume the least amount of power as more and more scientific experiments require to analyse more and more data. CERN is where the Web was born, it might also be where the ARM Server will get kickstarted. As computing centers around the world have the requirement to use the least amount of power. David Abdurachmanov is eager to test and potentially to implement mass production ready ARM 64bit Server hardware.

Gigabyte D120-S3G Annapurna Alpine AL5140 ARM Server for Cold Storage

Posted by Charbax – June 5, 2015

The lowest power Cloud storage with Cold Storage support, allows for most storage with the lowest cost and power consumption, where Annapurna (acquired by Amazon last January) designs a quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 SoC with built-in hardware RAID, also combining two Marvell chips totally the small motherboard can control 16 hard drives, designed for lowest power consumption and cost efficiency.

Gigabyte R120-P30 AppliedMicro X-Gene 1 ARM Server

Posted by Charbax – June 5, 2015

Gigabyte launched their AppliedMicro X-Gene 1 server on 64bit. This server can connect into for example the Annapurna storage server. By October Gigabyte will also be shipping the AppliedMicro X-Gene 2 server with DDR4 speed, lower power consumption, where AppliedMicro designs their custom SoC with many features integrated and performance and power consumption optimized. You can also see my tour at AppliedMicro featuring the X-Gene 1 and X-Gene 2:

Gigabyte H260-T70 ARM Server with Cavium ThunderX dual-socket 96-core/board, 384-core/2U server

Posted by Charbax – June 3, 2015

Gigabyte shows their "fastest ARM Server in the world" solution, packing 384 cores into a standard 2U. Big cloud companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon could buy these to fill up their datacers with 11 thousand or 15 thousand of them. Gigabyte's ARM Server product manager talks about the performance, the features compared to the old fashioned Intel x86 servers, the power consumption is much lower. Gigabyte will launch the mass production in November, now providing samples for validation and testing by their big cloud company customers around the world. The 48-core ARM ThunderX Processor uses about 95W, while the comparative-performance Intel x86 based server processor consumes 145W, totally the saving is about 400W per 2U system, which means a potential saving of 8000W power per server rack. Gigabyte started using ThunderX in their R120-T30 single-socket server, moving to the dual socket design to be ready for taking over the massive cloud computing market.

Gigabyte ARM Servers, Cavium ThunderX, AppliedMicro X-Gene and Annapurna AL5140

Posted by Charbax – June 2, 2015

Gigabyte is launching a whole range of ARM Powered Servers at Computex 2015: Gigabyte H279-T70 based on the Cavium ThunderX with 384 cores in a 2U system, Gigabyte D120-S3G featuring the Annapurna Labs Alpine AL5140 quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 and the Gigabyte R120-P30 is based on the Applied Micro X-Gene 1 Octa-core 64bit processor.

Grant Likely, Linaro Fellow, talks ARM Linux Development

Posted by Charbax – March 26, 2015

Grant Likely is a Linaro Fellow, Linux kernel Device Tree maintainer and Chair of the Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board. In this video he talks about the things Linaro has been doing to advance Linux on ARM and where he sees Linaro working towards in the future. They helped make big.LITTLE possible, they advance power/performance scheduling features around current and future ARM SoC designs to optimize the performance and power consumption for ARM Powered devices, from mobile to high-performance servers and networking.
