Calxeda Lays Out New Platforms for Cloud Datacenter


Startup Calxeda has disclosed its two-year road map including its first ARM-based 64-bit chip. Calxeda also announced Penguin Computer will sell systems using its current 32-bit CPUs.

The Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000, now available, has been shipped to Calxeda's OEM customers and end users, provides free access to the technology on the OpenStack Trystack.org cloud. The product is now available in servers from Penguin Computing, who announced its partnership with Calxeda today, in addition to its partners Boston Limited and Hewlett-Packard.

The Calxeda roadmap implements a two-pronged strategy to reach additional markets. The first enables optimized racks for public and private clouds, while the second will enable and span massive warehouse-scale datacenters.

Calxeda's second-generation platform, code-named "Midway," opens new markets for Calxeda. "It's all about finding the right balance of I/O, Storage, networking, management, memory and computational elements for each target market segment," added Evans. "This is the beauty of an ARM-based SoC approach: each platform can be tailored to add more value by addressing the unique needs of a specific workload."

To go after cloud applications such as dynamic web hosting and more computationally intensive Big Data analytics, Midway delivers more performance, more memory and hardware virtualization support using standard CortexA15 ARM cores. In addition, Calxeda?s second generation fabric will support new features such as dynamic power and routing optimization for public and private clouds. Midway will be available in volume in 2013.

"64-bit ARM architecture-based production servers are years away," said Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst, Moor Insights & Strategy. "Calxeda?s approach to shipping 32-bit technology today and upgrading to the ARM A15 in 2013 makes a lot of sense for specialized workloads in the largest datacenters."

Calxeda's third generation platform, code-named "Lago," is Calxeda's platform for the warehouse-scale datacenter. Built on the 64-bit ARM V8 architecture, Lago features Calxeda's third generation scaling features, called the Calxeda Fleet Services, to further automate and optimize common operations at massive scale. The enhanced fabric will also connect hundreds of thousands of nodes, with quality of service features and the ability to allocate and control resources.

"We expect to lead the industry with new concepts that will change the datacenter in ways far beyond just lowering power and increasing density," continued Evans. "Lago will be in the first wave of 64-bit complete systems and application stacks on ARM in 2014, and we are collaborating with key partners to ensure that customers can ramp quickly with production-quality software and OS support for both Midway and Lago."
