Microsoft experimenting with ARM-based servers

Posted on Wednesday, April 21 2010 @ 00:40:22 CEST by

A new job ad from Microsoft suggests the software giant is experimenting with ARM hardware to create more energy-efficient data centers for its Bing search engine:
Microsoft is looking for senior software development engineer to help with its Bing data centers, potentially running them on ARM hardware.

The engineer, with at least five years experience — and preferably a second degree — would work for the Bing Autopilot Hardware team and be based in Bellevue, Washington.

The Autopilot hardware team is involved in data center planning, hardware experimentation including SSD [solid-state drives] and ARM and vendor relationships, amongst other things. ARM processors are often used as disk drive controllers, but this ad does not mention Intel explicitly and seems to imply an ARM processor could be used for the main server in an attempt to save power.
