The E4 ARKA RK003 solution is part of a low-power, low-energy platform ideal for a broad range of applications including education, finance, media, energy, defense/intelligence, Cloud and Big Data. The RK003 offers reduced power consumption enabling a new level of high performance computing. E4's ARKA series is the first platform based on ARMv8 core architecture that offers a complete software ecosystem of Linux OS, libraries, compilers and applications.
"We are excited to announce the increasing momentum of customer shipments in a vast range of applications", stated Piero Altoè, PhD, PM E4 Computer Engineering. "Our servers deliver high performance 64-bit ARM enabled computing, reaching an impressive 3.74 teraflops, ARMv8-A silicon. This performance advantage leads to massive scalability for enterprise and data centre users."
"Offering both the best of high performance and low power consumption for the next wave of data centre connectivity, the rise of 64-bit ARM architecture is more prevalent than ever", stated Paramesh Gopi, president and CEO of AppliedMicro. "Since we announced the ARKA EK003 in June, we have seen excellent progress in providing an unparalleled enterprise experience for the server ecosystem."
Product features include:
E4's EK003 of the ARKA series was introduced and demoed at the International Supercomputing Conference in June 2014 in Germany. The platform combines AppliedMicro's high-performance, low-power X-Gene CPU processor architecture with NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU accelerators to deliver industry-leading performance per watt. The platform addresses a wide range of HPC workloads, including bioinformatics, CAD/CFD, imaging and computer vision, as well as data analytics.
The ARKA RK003 is available now.
