Silicon Mechanics now offers data center ready configurations using the Ampere® Altra® cloud native processor. Ampere Altra processors are designed to meet the most demanding workload requirements for high-performance data centers with power-constrained edge environments.
Silicon Mechanics Ampere Altra-based systems provides industry-leading power efficiency/core, while packing 80 cores in a single-socket and 160 cores in a dual-socket platform, establishing new levels of power efficiency with scalability.
They’re ideal for use cases that require high-performance, scalable, and sustainable cloud native solutions, including data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), database storage, telco stacks, edge computing, and web hosting.
Ampere offers the industry’s first cloud native processors, delivering performance, scalability, security and power efficiency focused on today’s hyperscale cloud and edge computing workloads and applications.
Ampere Altra processors, built with Arm® architecture, compete with the x86 platform by having more cores to tackle compute-bound workloads. Thinkmate servers with Ampere CPUs offer improvements in total cost of ownership (TCO) by running more efficiently per core and at a lower price per core. Our 1U and 2U servers feature a single socket Ampere Altra processor with 128 PCIe (Gen4) lanes, and support for all high-end RAM configurations.
Every Ampere Altra processor is single-threaded, runs at consistently high frequencies, and is built with large low-latency private caches. This results in predictable high performance that scales in a linear fashion for all cloud native applications. The architecture also lends itself to high utilization and delivers consistent performance under maximum load conditions.
In addition to being the leader in power efficiency, every Ampere high-performance cloud native processor contains up to 128 cores, by far the most in the industry. These processors were architected and designed from the ground up to deliver on the metrics that matter for modern cloud native applications.
Cloud service providers’ relentless drive to achieve carbon neutrality requires power efficient server processors that deliver exceptional performance. Legacy processors fall short of meeting modern cloud compute requirements.
