Quanta to build low-power cloud server

Based around Intel's Centerton

Quanta has announced that it will ship  new low-power cloud server based on Intel's upcoming Atom processor code-named Centerton. In a statement the company said that the server would ship by the end of this year and will be dubbed the Stratos S900-X31A.

It is the second server to be announced based on the 64-bit Centerton chip. The maker of expensive printer ink HP announced a new server as part of its Gemini server platform that will use Centerton, in June.

Atom processors are usually found in low-power laptops and tablets, and companies and are being touted as an alternative to ARM processors.  Both ARM and Intel are also pushing their low power chips into the server market.

Quanta's microserver will have 24 or 48 nodes in a 3U chassis. It will consume less than 10 watts per node.

Intel's Centerton processor draws 6 watts of power, and the company next year plans to launch a new Atom server chip code-named Avoton, which will be made using the 22-nanometer process.
