Massively Multi-Core Servers for New Server Technologies

Massively Multi-Core Servers for New Server Technologies


July 1, 2010

Last week's Structure 2010 conference had cloud-builders discussing the impact of Massively multi-core servers. While these servers are not for everyone, This Data Center Knowledge report says that SeaMicro and Tilera have both introduced server technology that will enable data center operators to run between 2,000 and 10,000 computing cores in a single rack using about 8 kilowatts of power.


"So who are these guys? SeaMicro and Tilera are focused on solving the power and cooling problems vexing data center operators – namely, that more computing power has been accompanied by rising electric bills and heat loads.

"This month both companies have introduced server technology that will enable data center operators to run between 2,000 and 10,000 computing cores in a single rack using about 8 kilowatts of power. These servers are not for everyone – they’re focused on workloads requiring many processors performing the same tasks. That’s why this technology is of tremendous interest to companies building large cloud computing platforms."/p>
