Cirrascale has launched its high density, two-in-one ARM64 development platform, the RM1905D. The platform is powered by the Applied Micro's X-Gene 64-bit ARM Server-on-a-Chip and NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU accelerators.
"Cirrascale is proud to be part of the growing ARM64 development movement with AppliedMicro and NVIDIA in deploying what we believe to be a growing ecosystem in high performance computing and cloud environments," said David Driggers, CEO, Cirrascale Corporation. "Businesses are looking for competitive advantages that tackle their growing workloads, and this platform will enable that next-generation of data center transformation."
"AppliedMicro is pleased to work closely with Cirrascale as a valued partner and reseller of the world's first ARMv8 64-bit-based Server-on-a-Chip solution," said Gaurav Singh, Vice President of Technology Strategy, Applied Micro Circuits Corporation. "The Cirrascale RM1905D development platform enables increased density while drawing less overall power than today's standard server architecture."
"GPU accelerators provide 64-bit ARM systems with the processing muscle that, for the first time, can tackle HPC workloads," said Ian Buck, vice president of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "GPUs enable innovative ARM server providers like Cirrascale to create systems that maximize the power efficiency and configurability of the ARM architecture, and deliver a new class of robust HPC solutions that address customer performance, density and scalability requirements."
The Cirrascale RM1905D development platform is immediately available to order and is scheduled to start shipping in early Q3 2014.
