Is there a significant market for 32-bit ARM server processors? How successful do you think Calxeda or Marvell (Armada XP) will be in getting sockets?

Looks like a really nice chip for an office router and network attached storage server. For Web front-ending, 32-bit software is fine and even though the clock rate is less than x86 devices, memory is still a bottleneck. Four cores of anything will be fighting for memory, which will make it interesting to see some system benchmarks rather than trivial 100 line programs that fit in cache. The LAMP stack has been ported to ARM which leaves pricing to determine adoption. Low power will help, but a couple of SATA drives will take more power than most cores. Remember Cobolt before Sun swallowed them up? This looks exciting.

It seems to be the case that server manufacturers are spoilt for choice nowadays. I was shopping for a dedicated server for my office and was introduced by the salesman to ARM and Intel based servers, and to date I have no idea which is better. Paul - http://www.connetu.com/

It seems like manufacturers are shifting their focus to create chips that are increasingly energy efficient. Not only are they looking for chips that boost the performance of the server, they also make sure that as little energy is used as possible. Not only for chips, but for servers themselves, it seems the green revolution is taking place. Paul - http://www.connetu.com/

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
