Introducing Atom C2000 'Avoton': Intel Builds Server, Storage, Networking Partnerships


Penguin Computing, Fremont, Calif., demonstrated a new microserver platform based on the Intel Atom processor C2000 product family built to the Open Compute Project's microserver card specification.

The new microserver platform, slated to ship early next year, is targeted at I/O-bound scale-out workloads, such as low-end web hosting, simple content delivery and ultra low-end web servers. It features a modular architecture that allows for right-sizing compute capacity by populating each chassis with the right number of microserver cards required to accommodate a specific workload.
