ARM to lead EuroCloud green datacenter project

The project will look at using the Cortex-A9 chip and 3D chip packaging to design an energy-efficient server for delivering cloud services to mobile devices.

ARM is leading a European Commission (EC)-funded datacenter research project to look into using multicore processors to try to deliver energy-efficient cloud-computing services to mobile devices.

Announcing the project, called EuroCloud, on Monday, the chip designer said it will work with Nokia, IMEC (which develops transistors), Swiss academic institution Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne and the University of Cyprus on the research. EuroCloud has already received an unspecified amount of EC funding, which will last for three years.

The project will use ARM's Cortex-A9 low-power multicore processor alongside 3D DRAM structures and chip packaging to try to make energy savings.
