SeaMicro, a provider of low power server technology, has announced its plans to participate in the Hot Chips conference this week at Stanford University, where it will present, "Building Data Center Servers Using Cell Phone (News - Alert) Chips," which will discuss the technology underpinnings of the revolutionary SM10000-64HD server.
Recently, SeaMicro announced it has crammed 768 Atom processor cores into SM10000-64HD server in an effort to provide a quick response time to Web transactions while saving energy.
"As data centers become more and more essential in day-to-day life, power consumption and space requirements are issues with real economic and environmental consequences," said Gary Lauterbach, founder and chief technology officer at SeaMicro, in a statement. "We are excited to share our unique approach to the problems faced by the data center at Hot Chips, in order to spark further discussion and innovation."
The SM10000-64HD combines SeaMicro's Internet-optimized server architecture with 384 of the latest 64-bit Intel (News - Alert) Atom N570 dual-core processors. It delivers 768 1.66 GHz x86 cores in 10 rack units (17.5 inches) and is characterized by high energy efficiency, high compute density, and 64-bit x86 software support.
At Stanford, SeaMicro joins leading engineers and researchers from major corporations and academia including IBM (News - Alert), Intel, UC Berkeley, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and others, who will also be presenting at the conference, company officials said.
