HP announces ARM-based servers

Hewlett Packard plans to make computer servers using low-energy processors based on ARM Holdings’ designs.

HP said the equipment would be cheaper to run than current alternatives.

UK-based ARM’s chip architecture was originally developed for use in smartphones and other mobile devices.

The British firm said the deal was “a first step” towards increasing its presence in a sector dominated by Intel’s X86-based processors.

Lower bills

The chips will be manufactured by Texas-headquartered Calxeda.

It said its Energycore server-on-a-chip would use as little as 1.5 watts. It claimed that is less than a tenth the power of today’s most energy-efficient server processors.

Since the chips give off less heat, HP is able to put more of them in a single enclosure. As a result, it said, some companies would find their equipment took up to 94% less space.

But HP stresses the chips should not be viewed as an alternative, rather than a replacement, for Intel’s more powerful products.
