Ingrasys Enables High Performance Computing and Hyperscale Workloads with New Class of Server Platforms Powered by Cavium™ ThunderX2™ Processors
TAIPEI, TAIWAN, May 29, 2017 – Ingrasys, fully owned subsidiary of Foxconn Technology Group, world’s largest manufacturer of server and storage platforms, today announced the sampling of new rack mount server platforms based on Cavium, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: CAVM), second generation 64-bit ARMv8 ThunderX2 product family.
Ingrasys is a trusted name in contract manufacturing services and is a recognized leader in the delivery of high-performance and scalable server and storage designs to leading server Innovation Design and Manufacturing (IDM) as well as container datacenter end user customers.
The Osmium platform from Ingrasys is a 2U4N rack mount density optimized server platform optimized for Cloud compute and high performance computing workloads. The platform supports four compute nodes in a 2U form factor delivering highest compute and memory density in a very compact form factor. Each compute node integrates two ThunderX2 SoCs in a cache coherent dual socket configuration with up to 1 TB of memory per node and 4 x16 PCIe slots enabling a variety of rich IO configurations. The four compute nodes share common chassis and power supply infrastructure enabling cost and density optimized server platforms that require a balance of high density compute with flexible OCP v2.0 Mezzanine card for network and storage connectivity options.
The ThunderX2 product family is Cavium's second generation 64-bit ARMv8-A server processor SoCs for Datacenter, Cloud and High Performance Computing applications. The family integrates fully out-of-order high performance custom cores supporting single and dual socket configurations. ThunderX2 is optimized to drive high computational performance delivering outstanding memory bandwidth and memory capacity. The new line of ThunderX2 processors includes multiple workload optimized SKUs for both scale up and scale out applications and is fully compliant with ARMv8-A architecture specifications as well as ARM's SBSA and SBBR standards. It is also widely supported by industry leading OS, Hypervisor and SW tool and application vendors.
“Our customers continue to demand platform innovation that reduces TCO and increases workload performance,” said Taco Chang, Director of ARM platform product group at Ingrasys. “The new platforms leverage ThunderX2’s compute, memory and rich IO capabilities to deliver highest levels of performance at compelling TCO allowing our customers to meet growing performance demands within their existing infrastructure.”
“Our design approach for the ThunderX product family continues to prove itself,” said Rishi Chugh, Director Product Marketing for Cavium’s Data Center Processor Group. “Our partnership with Ingrasys is a great match, combining both companies’ focus on delivering high performance solutions for Cloud and high performance computing workloads with outstanding TCO. Together, we are delivering the increases in performance and scalability necessary for businesses to handle increasingly data intensive workloads.”
Ingrasys Osmium ThunderX2 servers are sampling to select customers.
