Gigabyte launched their AppliedMicro X-Gene 1 server on 64bit. This server can connect into for example the Annapurna storage server. By October Gigabyte will also be shipping the AppliedMicro X-Gene 2 server with DDR4 speed, lower power consumption, where AppliedMicro designs their custom SoC with many features integrated and performance and power consumption optimized.
The lowest power Cloud storage with Cold Storage support, allows for most storage with the lowest cost and power consumption, where Annapurna (acquired by Amazon last January) designs a quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 SoC with built-in hardware RAID, also combining two Marvell chips totally the small motherboard can control 16 hard drives, designed for lowest power consumption and cost efficiency.
