Calxeda’s EnergyCore architecture is based on a new model for scale-out computing that is:
- Efficient – Delivers a 10x increase in performance density to maximize ROI on limited space and power.
- Scalable – Integrated fabric switch on every chip lowers cost of interconnecting thousands of servers.
- Smart – An Embedded Management Engine delivers zero-touch, always-optimized power management that eliminates manual intervention and guesswork.
“The fundamental constraint in the world of massively parallel approaches to data management and analytics is power,” said Mark Shuttleworth, sponsor of the Ubuntu operation system, and founder of Canonical, a key Calxeda partner. “Today marks the beginning of a new way of thinking about what is possible in data and analytics. What is happening here at Calxeda and HP is the beginning of that revolution in the data center.”
Founded in January 2008, Calxeda brings new performance density to the data center on a very attractive power foot print by leveraging ultra-low power processors as used on mobile phones as a foundation for its revolutionary technology. Calxeda will make it possible for data center managers to increase the density of their computer resources while significantly reducing the need for power, space and cooling. Calxeda is funded by a unique syndicate comprising industry leading venture capital firms and semiconductor innovators, including ARM, Advanced Technology Investment Company, Battery Ventures, Flybridge Capital Partners and Highland Capital Partners.
