Battle ready: HP rolls out first 64bit ARM-based server

64bit ARM-based server

The first enterprise-class ARM-based server was launched today. Hewlett-Packard (HP) announced that it is shipping models using ARM-based SoCs from Applied Micro and Texas Instruments. PayPal, Sandia National Labs and the University of Utah are HP's first users of the systems.

The news marks a small but significant milestone of commercial deployments of 64- and 32bit ARM-based servers in a market dominated by Intel x86 processors. To date, large rivals such as Dell have shipped prototype ARM servers, and small companies such as Boston Ltd. have sold small quantities of ARM servers.

HP's new Proliant m400 uses Applied Micro's X-Gene, which packs eight 2.4GHz custom 64bit ARM cores. HP is also making the system available remotely to developers as a software development platform.

The m400 packs up to 45 X-Gene cartridges in one 4.3U chassis. Each cartridge supports up to 64GB DDR3 DRAM and 480GB flash and runs Ubuntu server 14.04 LTS. The system supports 10G Ethernet links.
