SeaMicro SM10000-64 grabs 256 64-bit Atom CPUs for distinctive server

SeaMicro SM10000-64 grabs 256 64-bit Atom CPUs for distinctive server

Intel's Atom N570 processor isn't just to be found inside Lenovo's IdeaPad S100; server manufacturer SeaMicro has followed up its first Atom-based model, the SM10000, with a new version boasting 64-bit support. The SeaMicro SM10000-64 answers the main criticism of the first, Z530 based server, running enterprise-friendly 64-bit software with no modifications required. The dual-core chips also mean that the SM10000-64 requires just half the processors of its predecessor, though that doesn't make it necessarily cheap

Microsoft pushing for 16-core Atom CPUs

Microsoft pushing for 16-core Atom CPUs

Microsoft is reportedly pestering Intel for a 16-core version of its Atom processor, which would provide a low-power alternative to mainstream chips for use in data servers. Dileep Bhandarkar, an engineer at Microsoft's Global Foundation Services, suggested that higher-power Intel chips more commonly positioned for servers, such as the Xeon, demand too much power and active cooling in return for their higher clock speeds, PC World reports, and that there is a "huge opportunity" for a different strategy to data center processing.

Smooth-Stone ARM server chips get $48m funding to take on Intel

Smooth-Stone ARM server chips get $48m funding to take on Intel

While ARM processors are generally to be found in ultraportable devices like smartphones, a significant round of investment in power-frugal ARM-based server chip producer Smooth-Stone could signal an impending shift.  The company - which promises to bring "ultra‐low power mobile phone technology to the datacenter" - has secured $48m in new funding, which it will use to finalize its chip technology that uses many low-power processors rather than, as with Intel-based servers, a few high-power chips.

Pogoplug Biz targets business sharing with sober new chassi

Pogoplug Biz targets business sharing with sober new chassi

We were big fans of the second-gen Pogoplug when we reviewed it back in April, and now the company has outed a business-centric version, the Pogoplug Biz.  Ditching the consumer model's hot pink chassis for a more sober, black finish - after all, we wouldn't want employees thinking it was a party in the office - the Pogoplug Biz adds in file tracking stats, custom email addresses and file-sharing pages, multiple user accounts and remote backup.
