HP Taps Calxeda Server-on-a-Chip for Demo Lab

Summary
Hewlett-Packard has unveiled a new multi-year, multi-phased program called Project Moonshot that aims to dramatically reduce the footprint and energy consumption of the large server farms required for cloud computing environments. "For Web 2.0 companies to continually deliver new and innovative services, they must radically reduce the space, energy consumption and cost of their data center infrastructure," said Glenn Keels, product marketing director at HP's Hyperscale Business Group. In January, HP will open its first HP Discovery Lab in Houston, where clients will be able to experiment, test and benchmark applications on Redstone -- a server development platform that represents Project Moonshot's initial proof-of-concept offering. Additional lab sites are planned in Europe and Asia, where clients will be able to work directly with HP engineers and industry peers to test the new technology's ability to fulfill their specific requirements. HP's ultra energy-efficient Redstone platform will integrate over 2,800 servers in a single rack that delivers a 97 percent reduction in complexity through reductions cabling, switching and the need for peripheral devices. "Companies with hyper-scale environments are facing a crisis in capacity that requires a fundamental change at the architectural level," said HP Vice President Paul Santeler. New Era of Energy Efficiency The Redstone platform will incorporate energy-efficient processors from start-up Calxeda. Based on ARM's Cortex cores, Calxeda's EnergyCore server-on-a-chip is designed to consume as little as 1.5 watts of power. According to Calxeda CEO Barry Evans, the EnergyCore chip is designed to handle workloads such as Web serving, media streaming and scalable analytics, as well as mid-tier infrastructure tasks pertaining to caching and in-memory scalable databases. "We believe a new era of energy-efficient servers is now dawning for scale-out workloads," Evans said. Among other things, EnergyCore incorporates an 80-Gigabit fabric switch together with an integrated management engine with power optimization software. The single piece...

Samsung Could Introduce Bendable-Screen Phones in 2012

Summary
You need a lot of flexibility to succeed in today's mobile market, and Samsung is apparently taking that literally. The South Korean electronics giant's top investor-relations official, Robert Yi, made news early this week by signaling that a new technology for bendable displays may be part of the next generation of Samsung smartphones. "The flexible display, we are looking to introduce sometime in 2012, hopefully the earlier part," Yi said, according to press reports. He said "the application probably will start from the handset side," with tablets later on. Samsung's Galaxy tablets largely follow the technology of its phones. Samsung said in June that it intended to produce flexible OLED screens after displaying a super-thin, 4.5-inch version at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. A Web site devoted to OLED displays, OLED-Info, reported in June that Samsung had entered into a joint venture with Japan's Ube Kosan to produce substrates for flexible displays. Nokia, Too As smartphones get larger, the new technology could mean a new variation of the flip-phone model of phones, but with the screen itself folding instead of just the panel holding the screen, making it easier to fit in pockets or purses. It could also open doors for new entertainment use as games and videos could display a panoramic view. Samsung isn't the only company with bend on the brain, and it's not just about smartphones. "At Nokia World in London last week, Nokia showed off a demo of a bendable media player prototype, where the user interface incorporated twisting the whole unit -- screen included -- to zoom in/out of photos and select music to play," said consumer devices expert Avi Greengart of Current Analysis. "It was rather delightful. I have no idea what Samsung is planning to do with its version of the technology; its utility depends on how it is...
