SANTA CLARA and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Jun. 22, 2010 - Tilera® Corporation, the world leader in many-core general purpose microprocessors for cloud computing and networking applications, and Quanta Computer Inc., one of world’s largest computer ODMs, today unveiled the world’s most power efficient and highest compute density server, codenamed S2Q. The S2Q server, targeted specifically to tackle today’s cloud computing workloads, was designed in collaboration with cloud datacenter providers, end customers and software partners. It is targeted at large-scale datacenters running high performance web, database, hosting, and finance applications.
“This announcement is the validation of the real-world implications of our processors and what they offer,” says Omid Tahernia, CEO, Tilera Corporation. “Cloud is changing the way we think about computing. There are new demands for power efficiency and density that are not met by the x86 technology. Tilera based servers are meeting these exact needs in the market.”
“We are very excited about the S2Q server. This is a technological breakthrough, providing the high performance required at a fraction of the space and power budget,” said Mike Yang, vice president of the Cloud Computing business unit, Quanta Computer Inc. “This server illustrates Quanta’s continued leadership in server designs providing the latest in technology to the market.”
Each S2Q server includes eight Tilera TILEPro64™ processors and replaces eight high-end Intel Xeon 5000-class dual-socket servers, making it the highest performance and performance density 2U server in the industry. It provides vendors the building block for large-scale web clouds. Moreover, the integration of I/O on each processor enables this server to provide up to sixteen 10 GbE interfaces and sixteen 1 Gb interfaces without adding the power and the cost of additional chipsets and networking cards.
World’s highest density and highest compute 2U server
Power efficient and eco-friendly server
Serviceability and management
Tilera’s many-core design is ideal for the cloud because cloud applications execute millions of small parallel tasks simultaneously, instead of very complicated single threaded programs, which require very big cores. The TilePro64 processor features 64 cores running SMP Linux. Tilera’s iMesh™ technology enables it to integrate many cores with coherent caches to deliver scalable performance.
The S2Q server will be available to customers in September 2010 in limited quantities and generally available in Q4 2010. For additional information on the S2Q server contact S2Q@qsscit.com.
Tilera will be demonstrating the S2Q system on June 22-24 at Velocity 2010 in Santa Clara, Calif., and on June 23-24 at Structure 2010 in San Francisco.
Tilera® Corporation is the industry leader in general purpose multicore and many-core processors for cloud computing and communications applications. Tilera's processors are based on its breakthrough distributed iMesh™ architecture, which enables it to scale to hundreds of general purpose, low power, cores and continue to scale with new process technology. With this revolutionary architecture, a standard Linux environment, and standard GNU tools, Tilera delivers unprecedented general purpose compute capacity at a fraction of the power consumption of legacy processors. Tilera has three product families: the TILE64™, the TILEPro™ and its latest: the TILE-Gx. The company is headquartered in San Jose, Calif., with locations in Westborough, Mass., Yokohama, Japan, Beijing, and Shanghai, China.
