Introducing the Viridis 2.0

Viridis 2.0 The latest addition to the Viridis Microserver family based on Calxeda EnergyCore™ ECX-2000 chips; bringing an increased memory capacity of up to 16GB, improved performance, a faster clock speed and hardware features for virtualisation enabling support for KVM and Xen.

What's new?

The Boston Viridis 2.0 is based on six EnergyCore™ ECX-2000 cards, Calxeda’s latest family of SoC (Server-on-Chip) products that deliver the power efficiency of ARM®-based processors to the datacentre. Each card hosts two four-core SoC’s (Server-on-Chip), running at 1.8GHz and consuming as little as 6 Watts of power.

Certified to run Ubuntu 13.10 the ECX-2000 SoC enables the Boston Viridis 2.0 to run the latest OpenStack Havana platform designed for building public, private and hybrid clouds.

Inside the Viridis 2.0

BUILT-IN ENERGY EFFICIENT ETHERNET & VIRTUALISATION

Advanced system, power and fabric management software for energy-proportional computing, hosted on dual-core ARM® Cortex A15 processor. The Calxeda Fleet Engines™ replace separate BMC chips and FPGAs, along with dedicated Ethernet MAC for secure management.

LOWER COST, LOWER POWER & HIGHER SCALABILITY

Quad-core ARM Cortex processors integrated with high bandwidth memory controllers and 4MB L2 Cache. ARM Cortex A15 (up to 1.8 GHz) processors deliver:

  • 2x performance improvements
  • 3x memory bandwidth, and
  • 4x memory capacity

Advanced system, power and fabric management software for energy-proportional computing minimises the number of Ethernet PHYs – saving power, cost, cabling, and top-of-rack Ethernet switch Ports requirements.

It is highly scalable thanks to the integrated 80GB Fleet Fabric™ switch, while the embedded Fleet Engine™ simultaneously provides out-of-band control and intelligence for autonomic operation and power optimization.

IDEAL FOR COMPUTE CLOUDS, DISTRIBUTED STORAGE, & CONTENT DELIVERY

Certified to run Ubuntu 13.10 the ECX-2000 SoC enables the Boston Viridis 2.0 to run the latest OpenStack Havana platform designed for building public, private and hybrid clouds.
