Cavium announces collaboration with Pegatron on server platforms based on Cavium's ThunderX workload optimized processor family

1 Jun 2015 Taipei - Cavium Inc., a provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for enterprise, data centre, Cloud, wired and wireless networking, will collaborate with Pegatron Corporation, a DMS for high performance server platforms, for the development of workload optimized server platforms based on Cavium's 64-bit ARMv8 ThunderX product family.

Pegatron designs and manufactures high-performance and innovative server platforms worldwide, and is a recognized expert in data centre server design. Their award-winning design philosophy is based on a clear understanding and focus on customer requirements, and delivery of cutting-edge technology to provide competitive advantage. Pegatron customers worldwide use these server designs for production in high-performance computing, data centre and Cloud environments, and will now have access to server designs based on the Cavium ThunderX 64-bit ARMv8 processor.

Cloud and data centre customers demand computing platforms that deliver improved Total Cost of Ownership, while providing similar management and development environments to existing infrastructure. Pegatron's ThunderX-based product portfolio is designed to combine the workload-optimized high-performance of Cavium's 48-core ThunderX ARM processors with energy efficient board and chassis designs, and drive significant advantages in customer TCO.

The ThunderX product family provides best-in-class 64-bit ARMv8 data centre and Cloud processors, offering an unprecedented level of integration and industry leading SoC performance. With high performance custom cores, single and dual socket configurations, very high memory bandwidth, integrated hardware accelerators, and scalable feature-rich I/Os, this family of processors delivers best-in-class performance per dollar and performance per watt. The ThunderX family includes multiple SKUs that enable servers that are optimized for compute, storage, network and security workloads in the Cloud, and is fully compliant with ARMv8 architecture specifications as well as ARM's SBSA.

"Pegatron focuses on meeting customer requirements with innovative platforms delivering excellent TCO", stated Jay Huang, Pegatron Corporation general manager. "We have designed our new ThunderX-based platforms to deliver competitive advantage for HPC, Big Data and other hyperscale workloads. We're committed to providing competitive advantage to our customers through leading-edge technology, and delivery of these new ARM-based servers in Q2 2015 is a key part of our strategy."

"Demand for Cavium ThunderX workload-optimized ARMv8 processors is highlighted by the continued growth in system partners using our products", stated Steve Cumings, Director, Market Development for Cavium's Data Center Processor Group. "With up to 48-cores, large memory capacity and integrated accelerators and Ethernet fabric, high-performance ThunderX SOCs allow workload-optimized server designs that deliver powerful TCO advantages in both one-socket and two-socket configurations. We're delighted to work with Pegatron and enable datacenter platforms optimized for Cloud, Big Data, large-scale web and storage environments."
