ODP-OVS on Cavium ThunderX 48-core ARM Server

Posted by Charbax – February 7, 2016

Functional demonstration of ODP-OpenvSwitch (ODP-OVS) running on ThunderX. ODP-OVS to process the upd pkt in loopback way on 10G port. Pkt generator pumps 10G traffic to ODP-OVS port. ODP-OVS receives pkts, validates pkt hash from ovs flow_table and then loopback to same port at 10G line rate.

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:
