Servergy Joins the OpenPOWER Foundation
DALLAS --(Business Wire)--
Cleantech IT innovations company Servergy,
Inc., announced today the company has joined IBM, Google (News - Alert), Mellanox,
NVIDIA, Samsung Electronics, Tyan and Suzhou PowerCore Technology
Company in the OpenPOWER Foundation - an open development alliance that
makes IBM's (News - Alert) POWER microprocessor architecture available under license.
Servergy will collaborate within the Foundation on opportunities
leveraging Servergy's clean and green technology on Power architecture
with scale-up and scale-out capability for Big Data, caching, streaming,
cloud workload, and distributed storage application in data centers.
Servergy joins the OpenPOWER Foundation to help drive industry
advancement of high-performance, clean and green Power Architecture in
the data center. The company intends to extend its product line by
developing future OpenPOWER-compliant systems based on IBM's POWER
microprocessors, allowing new levels of performance and capability in
Servergy's Cleantech Server class of clean and green Linux on Power
System server products.
"We are proud to be an IBM Business Partner and to join the OpenPOWR
Foundation," said Bill Mapp, Servergy founder, chairman and CEO. "We
believe that when people collaborate on the power and potential of open
technology in exciting new ways, together we can help change our world.
Working with the OpenPOWER Foundation, we're excited about helping
accelerate the velocity of Power architecture innovation."
Servergy's initial product release in its new Cleantech Server line, the
CTS (News - Alert)-1000, delivers industry-leading performance-per-watt and extreme-I/O
density - literally helping pay for themselves. The new class of servers
operates with power consumption of around 100 Watts at full load. In
addition to reducing power, cooling, space, water, weight and carbon
footprints by up to 90% or more, the new systems also have up to 16
times or more the I/O and compute density over traditional server
technology. The US-built servers weigh only nine pounds, with a
footprint about the size of a legal pad, and pack two 10GbE and two 1GbE
ports in each server.
"The collaborative development model of the OpenPOWER Foundation
represents a major shift in the way processor technology can be
exploited and innovated around for new buyers and markets," said Doug
Balog, General Manager, IBM Power Systems. "OpenPOWER Foundation
members, such as Servergy, can take the Power architecture and innovate
on top of its unique design for emerging Big Data and cloud computing
