Calxeda Unveils the Latest Generation of 32-Bit Processors
Oct 28 13
Calxeda announced that it is unveiling the latest generation of its 32-bit processors for the data center while expanding the number of its upcoming 64-bit server chips. The company announced the EnergyCore ECX-2000 family of ARM Cortex-A15-based systems on a chip (SoCs) that are aimed at I/O-intensive cloud computing environments, including distributed storage, gaming services, streaming media and private clouds. The 32-bit chips include the Cortex-A15 cores up to 1.8GHz, and come integrated with 10 Gigabit Ethernet, standard I/O controllers and Calxeda's Fleet Fabric, which includes an embedded network fabric switch that can connect thousands of EnergyCore SoCs. The technology is a key part of Calxeda's effort to bring ARM's low-power chip technology normally found in mobile devices to the data center.
Penguin Computing, Calxeda and Inktank Partner to Deliver Large Scale Storage on Arm Based Servers
Jun 17 13
Penguin Computing announced that it is developing a highly efficient large scale cloud storage deployment with industry partners Calxeda(R) and Inktank. The reference implementation integrates the distributed, highly scalable Ceph storage system with Penguin Computing's power efficient UDX1, a server system based on Calxeda's ARM based Energy Core SoC. The UDX1 accommodates up to 48 servers and 36 hard drives in four rack units with a five Watt power envelope per server, an order of magnitude less than traditional x86 based servers. While the UDX1 is redefining server architecture with a low-power, high-density approach, the Ceph distributed storage system perfectly complements these features by running a distributed scalable storage cluster across a large number of systems. Ceph is a massively scalable, open source, software defined storage system. It comprises an object store, block store, and a POSIX- compatible distributed file system. The platform is capable of auto-scaling to the exabyte level and beyond, is self-healing and self-managing, and has no single point of failure. The UDX1 ARM-based servers uniquely enable Ceph clusters to deliver better performance per dollar with lower power consumption and higher rack density.
