Hewlett-Packard Ships The First 64-bit ARM Server With Applied Micro Circuit’s X-Gene


Hewlett-Packard launched today and is shipping for production a new wave of cartridges for their Hewlett-Packard Moonshot System, the ProLiant m400, based on AppliedMicro’s (Applied Micro Circuits) X-Gene system-on-chip (SoC). This launch also represents the first enterprise-class shipment of a 64-bit ARM server.  While mileage will vary for every datacenter customer and application, Hewlett-Packard’s new Moonshot server could deliver up to 35% lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for scale-out web tier/caching environments compared to traditional servers, and I’d like to share more detail on the announcement.  If you are looking for a deep dive on the ProLiant m400 and the TCO analysis, you can download our paper here. Let me provide some background first.

In 2011, ARM Holdings and its partners began promoting the vision of building extremely power efficient servers with an objective to reduce capital and operational expenses for workloads that don’t need the compute horsepower of traditional servers on the market today. As anticipation has been building in the industry for these ARM-based servers, the software ecosystem continues to grow, and customers have been performing limited testing to understand which workload may benefit from ARM servers vs. traditional server architectures. But until very recently, there have not beenany production ready 64-bit ARM-based server SoCs nor have there been any true enterprise-class ARM-based servers available that customers can use to test, analyze and deploy into production. That is until now.
