Lenovo and Hartree Centre partner on energy efficient computing

Lenovo will also be developing an ARM-based server prototype.

By CBR Staff Writer

Chinese company Lenovo is teaming up with the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Hartree Centre to reduce power consumption of high-performance computing systems.

Hartree Centre is likely to develop software and definine practices regarding ARM-based server deployments.

The centre is already researching on the energy consumption of computing and the challenges when given a defined power budget.

According to the company, ARM technology has to overcome the hurdle of being built out of an ecosystem to support a production environment.

STFC Hartree Centre Energy Efficient computing program manager Neil Morgan said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to meet the challenge of developing a computationally powerful and energy-efficient platform based on the 64-bit ARM v8 microprocessor.

"The Hartree Centre will be actively developing a robust software ecosystem encompassing compilers, linkers, numerical libraries and tools – all of which are fundamental to the adoption of these types of technologies."

As a part of the project, Lenovo will also be developing an ARM-based server prototype which will be an extension of the company’s dense computing platform NeXtScale.

NeXtScale solutions are used for high-performance computing, large-scale cloud and virtualisation infrastructures, grid deployments, analytics workloads.

Lenovo’s NeXtScale ARM server will be based on Cavium ThunderX SoC (system on chip) that is designed to minimise cost and power consumption.
