X-bit Labs reports chip startup Calxeda plans to introduce 64-bit ARM processors for servers in 2014. Head over to the X-bit Labs link for full details on the company's chip roadmap.
Calxeda’s third generation platform, code-named “Lago”, is Calxeda’s platform for the warehouse-scale datacenter. Built on the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture, Lago features Calxeda’s third generation scaling features, called the Calxeda Fleet Services, to further automate and optimize common operations at massive scale. The enhanced fabric will also connect hundreds of thousands of nodes, with quality of service features and the ability to allocate and control resources. Lago is set to become available in 2014.
“We expect to lead the industry with new concepts that will change the datacenter in ways far beyond just lowering power and increasing density. Lago will be in the first wave of 64-bit complete systems and application stacks on ARM in 2014, and we are collaborating with key partners to ensure that customers can ramp quickly with production-quality software and OS support for both Midway and Lago,” explained Mr. Evans.
