3Jason Waxman Shows Off ‘Avoton’
Waxman, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Cloud Platform Group, holds up a 22-nanometer “Avoton” Atom SoC aimed at microservers. Intel currently is shipping samples of the chip to customers and will launch it later this year. Avoton will offer up to four times the energy efficiency and seven times the performance of the first Atom SoC for microservers, the S1200 Centerton SoC, which launched in December 2012.
4Intel’s Upcoming Rack Architecture
The chip maker’s evolving Rack Scale Architecture calls for creating physical disaggregation between the computing elements in the server, eventually reaching the point where all the resources are essentially pooled. Intel currently is looking to have the systems within the rack share more resources, including power, cooling and I/O. Intel’s Waxman shows off a prototype rack of three server modules powered by Xeon chips with the shared resources in the mezzanine area at the top of the rack.
