SeaMicro just announced the release of a new low-power server that promises to cut power costs for companies running large Internet services and cloud computing platforms. SeaMicro’s multi-core x86 server runs on Intel’s low-power Atom chips, whose energy efficiency has made them the processor of choice for many mobile phones and laptops.
The power profile of the SM10000 packs 512 Atom CPUs into a 10U server, capable of fitting up to 2,048 CPUs into a single seven foot, 40U rack. Each of its servers use less than 2 kilowatts of power, suggesting that a rack filled with SeaMicro servers can have a power load of under eight kilowatts – a manageable power load for most data centers optimized for high-density computing.
