X-Gene technology to power European server research project

A three year €4.8million European project due to set off in February 2016 will use AppliedMicro’s X-Gene technology to develop a universal system architecture and software ecosystem for servers.

As part of the UniServer project, AppliedMicro will develop custom platforms based on X-Gene that address the complexities associated with Big Data and IoT applications.

“The goal of UniServer is to improve the energy efficiency, performance, dependability and security of microservers and AppliedMicro quickly emerged as the platform of choice for this research,” said Queen’s University Belfast researcher Dr Georgios Karakonstantis, project coordinator.

Paramesh Gopi, AppliedMicro’s president and CEO, added: “The pervasiveness and proven ability of the X-Gene platform complements the goal of the UniServer project to improve the performance of servers that run internet and cloud-based services, while reducing design, implementation costs and power consumption.”

Other members of the UniServer consortium include ARM and IBM.
