The World's First Hyperscale Server – Based On ARM® Processors

Server that only uses 5 watts of power!

The Boston Viridis uses the ARM® based Calxeda EnergyCore™ SoCs (Server on Chip) to create a
rack mountable 2U server cluster comprising 192 processing cores leading the way towards energy
efƒ cient hyperscale computing.
The Boston Viridis is a self contained, highly extensible, 48 node ultra-low power ARM® cluster with integral high-speed interconnect and storage within a standard single 2U rack mount enclosure.

Each 2U chassis contains a total of 12 Calxeda EnergyCards connected to a common mainboard
sharing power and fabric connectivity. The Calxeda EnergyCard is a single PCB module containing 4
Calxeda EnergyCore™ SoCs; each with 4GB DDR-3 Registered ECC Memory, 4 x SATA connectors and management interfaces.
