Servergy, Rex Show Off Power-Efficient Servers at Open Compute Summit
The companies leverage technologies from Freescale, Xilinx and Adapteva to create small, highly efficient systems.Much of the news coming out of the Open Compute Summit this week revolved around such high-profile names as Facebook, ARM, Advanced Micro Devices, Microsoft and Seagate. For example, ARM issued a platform standard for the servers that will run on its 64-bit chip designs, while AMD introduced its first ARM chip, the A1100 "Seattle" system-on-a-chip (SoC). Microsoft joined the Open Compute Project (OCP). However, the conference, hosted by the OCP, also attracts smaller companies and startups that are looking to leverage the open and energy-efficient data center hardware specifications in the products they're pulling together. Servergy and Rex Computing were at the Open Compute Summit in San Jose, Calif., to show off what they had and give some direction about what is coming up. Servergy, which designs highly energy-efficient servers, in October 2013 released the first system in its new Cleantech portfolio, the CTS-1000. During the Open Compute Summit, Servergy officials put the system on display. At the same time, the company officials also talked about its upcoming 64-bit Cleantech I/O accelerator and server, which they said is designs for I/O intensive workloads in scale-out data center environments.
"With Servergy's new Cleantech Server class of servers, we want to model how technology can improve being clean (energy-efficiency) and green (eco-friendly), while at the same time maximizing I/O performance-per-watt per U, TCO [total cost of ownership], OpEx and ROI [return on investment] for our customers," Servergy founder, chairman and CEO Bill Mapp said in a statement.
