Calxeda took a quad-core EnergyCore ECX-1000 1.1GHz processor and pitted it against Intel's 3.3GHz Xeon E3-1240.
Hosted Windows and Linux servers that let you pay for CPU, RAM and storage by the hour — for small business not just enterprise: is a Dynamic Cloud Server a good way to scale a business web service?Usually, when you pay for a hosted server, you pick the specification you think you need and pay for extra bandwidth if you need it.
Reduced power consumption is big theme of latest server line refreshes from vendors including Bull, Dell, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, NEC and Super Micro.
There’s a lot to be said for the modern data centre movement, and the trend away from power-hungry inefficient racks of under-utilised servers. Virtualisation lets you pack more and more functionality onto each CPU, saving space and power (at the expense of a little more cooling, or a slightly shorter server lifespan).
AMD's new chip architecture, dubbed Bulldozer, is being highly anticipated next year as the company prepares to match Intel's forthcoming Sandy Bridge processors. Included in AMD's plans, according to Fudzilla, is an eight-core CPU that will be aimed at the server market, but that will no doubt be of interest to performance desktop buyers as well.

Virtualisation has moved from being a shiny new technology concept to a sticky business that involves getting your hands dirty with some real technology and business problems. But while server virtualisation is now a well-known technique for saving money by increasing server CPU utilisation, storage virtualisation remains a hazy concept.
I'm still keeping my dual-Atom CPU Multi-Boot Mini-Server up to date, so I was pleased to see the release of CentOS 5.4 a week or so ago.

From time to time, someone will ask me if it makes sense to purchase a large (32+ CPU) server as a big virtualization host running a VMware, Microsoft, or Citrix hypervisor.In a word, I think the answer is "no".
The blade server I want is pretty simple: integrated everything with room for up to 32 "blades" consisting of PS3 CPU boards - all running yellowdog Linux, of course.
Oracle has dropped the first quarterly critical patch update for 2009 -- with patches for 41 vulnerabilities in a wide range of database server products.The January 2009 CPU includes 20 new security fixes for the company's flagship database product lines, 4 new security fixes for the Oracle Application Server, 9 vulnerabilities in Oracle Secure Backup, 4 new security fixes for the Oracle Applications Suite, and 6 new security fixes for the PeopleSoft and JDEdwards Suite.
Fellow ZDNet blogger, Paul Murphy, warned recently against using virtualization technologies to really max out CPU utilization. The temptation, of course, is to assume that a server running at only 30% of capacity is being wasted.
Microsoft's Hyper-V is a solid virtualisation platform that's compatible with a wide range of modern server hardware.
Database server giant Oracle plans to ship patches for a total of 45 security vulnerabilities on Thursday (July 17), bringing the vulnerability count for 2008 to a whopping 112.Since January 2006 (this CPU included), Oracle has shipped fixes for a total of 572 vulnerabilities.
How are the roadmaps of the leading server processor vendors shaping up for 2009 and beyond? We pore over Intel, AMD, IBM and Sun's latest plans.
Oracle on Tuesday delivered 41 patches--including two that are rated the highest risk--for a wide range of products.According to the Oracle security team blog:This Critical Patch Update (CPU) addresses a total of 41 vulnerabilities affecting Oracle Database Server, Oracle Application Express, Oracle Application Server, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise, and Oracle Siebel CRM Applications.
For anyone looking to buy a workstation or server CPU, quad-core CPUs have become mainstream. Therefore it's important to know what you're getting for the money so I've compiled a chart with general purpose computing performance using the SPEC CPU database with the highest scores as of December 28, 2007.
For now, even the AMD four socket advantage in the Server market has melted away since it's about half the price to build a two socket quad core server compared to a four socket dual core AMD server. AMD will come out with their quad core CPUs that come on a single die in the middle of 2007 promising to consume no more power than the existing dual core processors which should be slightly lower than Intel's current quad core CPUs. The problem is that Intel is not standing still and Intel will be releasing 50 watt quad core processors in the first quarter of 2007 before AMD even begins to ship their first quad core CPU.
This is the third time in a row that hardware-enforced DEP has preemptively protected me from a zero-day Internet Explorer exploit. The first time I verified this was with the WMF exploit, the second time was a zero-day IE exploit this March. Therefore I highly recommend people enable DEP protection in Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 and never buy a CPU without NX or XD capability.
Cutting sockets while maintaining the same number of CPU cores is extremely valuable in the server market because it can cut your software licensing in half while maintaining the same performance. Microsoft SQL and IBM DB2 (on x86 platform) for example charge their licenses based on the number of CPU sockets and not based on the number of CPU cores. Quad-core computing can cut server hardware costs and software licensing in half but the software savings is far more significant because software often costs 2 to 10 times more than the hardware it's running on.
Intel sells off communications chip unitA day after the debut of a key server processor, Intel hands off a line of business that never really took off.Intel quad-core processors may see spike in power - sourcesIntel dual-die "Clovertown" Quad-Core CPU due in 2007 may top 100 watts, which is similar to AMD's single-die quad-core processor.
