Cloud is becoming a dominant consumer of servers, but current computing technology is not satisfying cloud's exacting need for higher performance per watt, performance per cubic foot, and performance per dollar expended.
Processors used in most servers today consume too much power. Further, their roadmaps do not scale performance at the rate required by cloud. While those legacy processors solved computing problems encountered in the past, they now are the source of the of high power, low density, and high costs in the cloud environment. To satisfy the cloud computing requirements, fundamental changes in processor architecture are required because users need to double performance and reduce power with each successive generation.
Tilera® provides such breakthroughs. Tilera-based servers supply the performance at a fraction of the space and use a fraction of the power. 2U servers based on Tilera processors replace up to eight high-end dual socket servers. Tilera’s servers are being used in web applications, database acceleration, search, and data mining while saving customers millions of dollars in operating costs.
Tilera and Quanta Computer Inc., one of world’s largest computer ODMs, on June 22, 2010 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.
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 10GbE interfaces and sixteen 1GbE interfaces without adding the power and the cost of additional chipsets and networking cards.
The S2Q server is available now. For additional information on the S2Q server contact S2Q@qsscit.com.
