Penguin Computing launches Ultimate Data X1 ultradense ARM server

Penguin Computing announced on 17 October the immediate availability of its Ultimate Data X1 (UDX1) system. The UDX1 is the first server platform offered by a North American system vendor that is built on the ARM®-based EnergyCore System on Chip (SoC) from Calxeda.

With a five Watt power envelope per server the UDX1 is ideal for I/O bound workloads including “Big Data” applications, scalable analytics and cloud storage. The UDX1 offers a drastic reduction of TCO for high-density, low power computing environments. Workloads that have been processed by racks of conventional systems can now be handled by a group of servers in a single physical unit. The UDX1 features a modular architecture that can be configured with up to 48 Calxeda EnergyCore server nodes, with four cores per node. The system includes an internal 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch fabric for node-to-node connectivity and provides up to 144TB of hard drive capacity.
