SeaMicro to Present Its Revolutionary Server Technology at Hot Chips

Company to Describe the Technology That Enables Its SM10000-64HD™ to Be the Most Energy Efficient Server Ever Built

STANFORD, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - STANFORD UNIVERSITY, HOT CHIPS 23 -- SeaMicro™, the Silicon Valley pioneer of low power server technology, today announced its participation in the prestigious Hot Chips conference at Stanford University. The company's talk, titled "Building Data Center Servers Using Cell Phone Chips," will discuss the technology underpinnings of the revolutionary SM10000-64HD™ server, which uses just one-quarter of the power and one-sixth the space of the best-in-class servers for data center workloads. SeaMicro joins leading engineers and researchers from major corporations and academia including IBM, Intel, UC Berkeley, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and others, who will also be presenting at the conference.

SeaMicro's SM10000-64HD server is a third generation server from the company. While it uses only a quarter of the power and one sixth the space of traditional servers, it requires no changes to software whatsoever. The SM10000-64HD combines SeaMicro's revolutionary server architecture with 384 of the latest 64-bit Intel® Atom™ N570 dual-core processors. The resulting system delivers 768 1.66 GHz x86 cores in 10 rack units (17.5 inches). Bringing together Intel's most advanced Atom processor and SeaMicro's Internet-optimized server architecture, the SM10000-64 combines the benefits of energy efficiency, high compute density, and 64-bit x86 software support.

"As data centers become more and more essential in day-to-day life, power consumption and space requirements are issues with real economic and environmental consequences," says Gary Lauterbach, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at SeaMicro. "We are excited to share our unique approach to the problems faced by the data center at Hot Chips, in order to spark further discussion and innovation."

"Building Data Center Servers Using Cell Phone Chips" will be held on Friday, August 19 at 10:45 a.m. at the Stanford Memorial Auditorium.
