Today Penguin Computing demonstrated a new microserver platform based on the Intel Atom processor. As one of the first microserver designs built on the Open Compute Project’s microserver card specification, the microserver can accommodate 64-bit Intel Atom C2000 processors that feature up to eight cores and up to 32GB of 1600 MHz of DDR3L RAM within power envelopes as low as 6W.
Penguin Computing is at the forefront of delivering cutting edge server and storage solutions for the Open Data Center and our customers are focused on delivering the maximum compute and storage density within existing power and cooling constraints,” said Charles Wuischpard, CEO of Penguin Computing.“Due to its ultra-low power envelope, high density, expanded memory and 64-bit support for the x86 instruction set we’ve added designs based on the Intel Atom processor C2000 to our product roadmap that will be fundamental to our microserver-based solutions.”
With Penguin Computing’s new microserver platform workloads that have been processed by racks of conventional systems can now be handled by a group of servers in a single physical unit. Read the Full Story.
