ASUS has launched new servers and server boards – based on Cavium ThunderX 64-bit, 48-core ARM platform – targeting enterprises and SMBs.
The new ThunderX-based ASUS servers and server boards outperform the regular two-socket server applications in cloud workloads and HPC benchmarks.
“With two-socket capability, great power efficiency, and built-in hardware acceleration, customer demand for our high-performance ThunderX ARM processors continues to grow,” said Gopal Hegde, vice president and general manager of Cavium’s Datacenter Processor Group.
The ThunderX product delivers 64-bit ARMv8 datacenter and cloud processors — supporting single- and dual-socket configurations.
The ASUS ThunderX-based server platform is optimized for applications, like Ceph, cloud, big data and scale-out web workloads.
ASUS server internals are free from messy cabling, proving a clear and direct airflow channel for efficient heat dissipation.
