SeaMicro currently has over a dozen solution provider partners worldwide, and is looking to quickly build its U.S. channel base, Feldman said.
"We work well with integrators who are able to lead the sale with servers," he said. "It's been a long time since anyone has been able to lead with the server."
Deals with some of SeaMicro's top customers so far, including Rogers Communications, Mozilla, and the Oakridge National Laboratories, were done with channel partners, he said.
Feldman told CRN that the company has had investment from strategic partners. However, he declined to name them. "I'd love to announce them," he said. "But it's their choice."
SeaMicro is not the only company focusing on high-density servers.
Processor startup Tilera and Taiwan-based Quanta Computer last Summer collaborated to build what they billed as the world's highest compute density server, a unit which fits up to 10,000 processor cores on a standard rack is aimed at cloud computing and service providers.
Meanwhile, investors including Intel competitors ARM and Advanced Technology Investment Company (ATIC), which was founded in part by AMD, in August invested $48 million in a new startup to produce low-power server processors.
