HP retracts: Announces the ready availability of ARM-based servers Gemini
The recent announcement of servers based on HP Gemini Intel Atom microprocessors Centerton did assume that HP did end their alliance with calxeda in the development of servers based on the ARM SoC EnergyCore Calxeda .
In one of those unexpected twists typical of a telenovela, HP retracts and says his relationship with Calxeda still booming, and with her being developed based on the gemini server Calxeda energycore SoC, which will be available in large volumes.
Gemini servers are based in cartridges, each containing a mini-motherboard with its own CPU and memory, so Gemini servers are not limited to x86 and ARM, as will also be possible to combine both types of cartridges architectures, and even other than them: HP says also in talks with AMD and other chip manufacturers to develop arm Gemini cartridges based on their products.
Centerton based Gemini come later this year and is expected to ARM-based version is available a few months later.
