The three-year project, which started September 2013, is expected to deliver an innovative scalable computer system architecture this year and a hardware-software prototype implementation by the end of 2015.
The rise of cloud-enabled smart devices, cloud-based client services and the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to create an opportunity as they will drive a shift in the needs of the IT infrastructure which is already under pressure to reduce power consumption even as it tries to scale up to serve increasing numbers of applications.
The Euroserver project is advocating the use of low-power ARM processors in a server architecture that uses 3D integration to scale processors, memory and I/O, all managed by system-wide virtualization and efficient use of resources by cloud applications. The group is aiming for a factor of ten improvement in energy efficiency over traditional server and microserver architectures.
