First ARMv8 Multi-Socket Volume Server OCP Server Design

SAN JOSE, Calif. and TAIPEI, Taiwan - Computex - Cavium, Inc., (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, cloud wired and wireless networking, today announced plans for server contributions to the Open Compute Project Foundation based on the ThunderX family of workload optimized processors.  In addition Cavium announced that it is joining the Open Compute Project (OCP).

As a member of the Open Compute Project, Cavium is committed to provide leadership in the core areas of System and Server design. Cavium will contribute the first Open Rack compatible motherboard specification for cache-coherent, multi-socket configurations targeted for the ARMv8 architecture.  This design will be based on Cavium's workload-optimized ThunderX processor family which integrates the Cavium Coherent Processor Interconnect (CCPI™) in addition to full support for integrated high bandwidth multiport switches, high speed storage and PCI-e interfaces.  

This commitment will include the contribution of designs, specifications and community engagement.  With Cavium's history of industry leading technical expertise in the security and networking market, combined with today's announcement of the ThunderX SoC family for the server market, Cavium is well positioned to help the OCP community continue to build on its mission of efficient designs for scalable computing.

"At the Open Compute Foundation we continue to see our members have a growing impact on the direction of the Hyperscale and Cloud Computing infrastructure in today's Data Centers. Cavium's technical expertise and core competence in the fundamental areas that matter aligns perfectly with the OCP mission," said Cole Crawford, Executive Director of the Open Compute Project Foundation.  "We look forward to working closely with the Cavium team and benefiting from their contributions to OCP."

"The excitement and creativity that the Open Compute Project has brought to scale out system and data center design is a big win for the entire server industry.  Cavium is committed to play a leadership role in working with the OCP community to continue to enhance design capability and deliver substantial value to end users," said Larry Wikelius, Director Thunder Ecosystems and Partner Enablement.  "Cavium's strategy of leadership in building and supporting a thriving OpenSource Hardware and Software community for the ARM based server market takes another step forward with our OCP participation."

The ThunderX product family provides best-in-class 64-bit ARMv8 data center and cloud processors, which we believe will offer an unprecedented level of integration and industry leading ARMv8 SoC performance. With high performance custom cores, single and dual socket configurations, very high memory bandwidth, large memory capacity, integrated hardware accelerators, fully virtualized core and IO, scalable Ethernet fabric and feature rich I/O's that enable best-in-class performance per dollar and performance per watt.  The ThunderX family includes multiple workload optimized SKUs that enable servers and appliances that are optimized for compute, storage, network and secure compute workloads in the cloud. The ThunderX processor family is fully compliant with ARMv8 architecture specifications as well as ARM's SBSA.
