Ingrasys announces production systems based on Cavium's ThunderX2 processor

13 Nov 2017 Denver - Ingrasys, a fully owned subsidiary of Foxconn Technology Group, world's largest manufacturer of server and storage platforms, has announced the production sampling of their rack-mount server platforms based on Cavium Inc.'s second-generation 64-bit Armv8 ThunderX2 product family.

Ingrasys is a trusted name in contract manufacturing services and is a recognized expert in delivering high-performance and scalable server and storage designs to leading server Innovation Design and Manufacturing (IDM), as well as container data centre end user customers.

The Osmium platform from Ingrasys is a 2U4N rack-mount, density-optimized server platform, optimized for cloud and high-performance computing workloads. The platform supports four compute nodes in a 2U form factor, delivering the highest compute and memory density in industry standard 19" form factor. Each compute node integrates two ThunderX2 SoCs in a cache-coherent, dual-socket configuration with up to 1 TB of memory per node and 4 x16 PCIe slots, enabling a variety of rich I/O configurations. The four compute nodes share common chassis and power supply infrastructure, enabling cost and density optimized server platforms that require a balance of high-density compute with a flexible OCP v2.0 Mezzanine card for network and storage connectivity options.

The ThunderX2 product family is Cavium's second-generation, 64-bit Armv8-A server processor SoCs for data centre, Cloud and high-performance computing applications. The family integrates fully out-of-order, high-performance custom cores supporting single- and dual-socket configurations. ThunderX2 is optimized to drive high computational performance, delivering outstanding memory bandwidth and memory capacity. The new line of ThunderX2 processors includes multiple SKUs for both scale up and scale out applications and is fully compliant with Armv8-A architecture specifications, as well as ARM's SBSA and SBBR standards. It is also widely supported by industry-leading OS, hypervisor and software tool and application vendors.

"Ingrasys has been working closely with Cavium to get ThunderX2-based production server platforms to market. We see significant demand from a wide variety of server customers in Cloud computing, Cloud storage and high-performance computing segments", stated Taco Chang, Director of Cloud & Network Business Group at Ingrasys. "ThunderX2 provides high-performance, high memory bandwidth and dual-socket support, which are essential for our customers running Web front-end, high-performance storage, high floating-point, memory-intensive and embarrassingly parallel workloads. As ARM server market continues to expand, we look forward to introducing more platforms with Cavium server SoCs."

"With our second-generation 64-bit Armv8 processor family, Cavium is disrupting the server industry by integrating compute performance as well as best-in-class memory bandwidth and capacity in a single SoC", stated Surya Hotha, Director of Product Marketing, Data Center Processor Group at Cavium. "Ingrasys's 2U4N density-optimized Osmium platform enables our customers to leverage ThunderX2 capabilities by offering a reliable platform for businesses demanding high-performance, scalable and TCO optimized solutions for high-performance compute (HPC) applications."

Ingrasys Osmium ThunderX2 servers are available to order.
