"We are excited to announce the launch of the first production X-Gene 64-bit ARM enterprise server motherboard today," said
SoftIron 64-0800 Server Motherboard
SoftIron's 64-0800 server motherboard uses AppliedMicro's X-Gene ARMv8 64-bit Server-on-a-Chip technology. It offers up to twice the performance-per-watt of leading x86 alternatives and has the potential to be deployed at twice the rack density. Initially available in an eight core processor unit, the server boasts many power-saving and performance-enhancing innovations.
• MicroATX form factor motherboard• 8 core ARM-based 64-bit X-Gene CPU• 2x memory channels (240-pin 72bit DIMM) up to 128 GB memory• 4x SATA 3.0 ports• 2x 10GigE ports• 2x 1GigE RJ45 ports• 2x USB3.0 connector• PCIe 3.0 (8-lane) connector
The SoftIron 64-0800 server motherboard offers an integrated security subsystem with a fully featured, packet-processing engine for offloading cryptographic operations from the CPU. This provides hardware support for industry-standard, cryptographic algorithms and protocols, dramatically improving the performance of many compute-intensive security tasks. "Our server motherboard has been designed from the ground up to deliver the features and performance required by the demanding high performance computing market place," added Fraser. "Our design takes AppliedMicro's market leading X-Gene silicon and integrates it with an ultra-efficient board and power supply design, to deliver server technology that maximises efficiency and improves Total Cost of Ownership."
The team behind
"The combination of our proven X-Gene silicon with SoftIron's ultra-low power server technology delivers performance at substantially lower power and provides meaningful TCO savings for the enterprise market," said
"We commend SoftIron's pioneering work to help make ARM based servers a reality for the HPC segment," said
