Description

New 3D server architecture for better energy-efficient Data Centres

Data Centres (DCs) are a key resource for innovation and leadership of industry in Europe. They drive the Information Society through hosted cloud applications. To sustain the ever-increasing demand of storing and processing data, DCs need to improve their capabilities and scale in size. With current server technology, however, DC scaling is limited by the IT equipment’s density and energy consumption. To keep up with data growth, the IT equipment must become dramatically smaller and more efficient in power and energy. This moves the focus of server design from performance to power/energy efficiency and total cost of ownership (TCO). The basic components of future servers and their integration into a full system must be reconsidered from the ground up. The processor, the memory hierarchy, I/O, the system interconnects and the software all require fundamental changes to match the applicationperformance requirements in less space and with drastically lower energy costs. EUROSERVER is addressing these challenges in a holistic manner; we advocate the use of state-of-the-art lowpower ARM processors in a new server system-architecture that uses 3D integration to scale with the numbers of cores, and the memory and I/O, all managed by new systems software providing transparent system-wide virtualization and efficient resource use by cloud applications. The EUROSERVER prototype will demonstrate how the proposed approach can lead to 10x DC Energy Efficiency by 2020.

Cel

Data-centres form the central brains and store for the Information Society and are a key resource for innovation and leadership. The key challenge has recently moved from just delivering the required performance, to include consuming reduced energy and lowering cost of ownership. Together, these create an inflection point that provides a big opportunity for Europe, which holds a leading position in energy efficient computing and market prominent positions in embedded systems.EUROSERVER is an ambitious and holistic project aimed to arm Europe with leading technology for conquering the new markets of cloud computing:1. Capitalise on the European strength in embedded and low power computing to provide an innovative combined architecture-and-technology integration platform that enables the reuse of highly-integrated,high-performance, energy-efficient component subsystems in a micro-server solution suitable across both cloud data-centres and embedded application workload.2. Perform a combined architecture-technology exploration that creates the hardware and the software for micro-server based computing in support of cloud-based and embedded applications.3. Evidence this architecture in a data-centre grade low-power physical micro-server prototype solution utilizing advanced ARM IP, industry leading FD-SOI fabrication technology, and state of the art 2.5D device integration technologies and prove the advantages of these European technologies as the enabler of next generation,low-cost, power-efficient, high-density compute.The EUROSERVER consortium brings together world-class leaders in their own fields and creates the critical-mass required to deliver "More than Moore" solutions. A unique differentiator of EUROSERVER is its broad access to the required industrial technologies and specialised academic support. The potential impact of EUROSERVER is therefore very high to competitively accelerate and improve the delivery of energy-efficient computing worldwide.
