In addition, the Marvell ARMADA XP series of multi-core processors employs a very low power architecture and incorporates up to four Marvell-designed ARM V7 MP-compliant 1.6GHz CPU cores to deliver the best performance per Watt for next-generation "Green" system designs. The ARMADA XP series supports SMP (Symmetrical Multi-processing) / AMP (Asymmetrical Multi-processing) modes with hardware cache coherency and a 64-bit DDR2/DDR3 memory interface at an 800MHz clock rate (1600MHz data rate) to enable the utmost in performance.
SanDisk's SATA X100 SSDs used in the Marvell solution are high-speed, energy-efficient data storage products that offer improved performance for a wide range of applications. With an advanced solid state architecture and ability to achieve high data speeds, these SanDisk SSDs outpace traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) in every performance category. SanDisk's X100 SSDs offer a 6 Gbit/s SATA interface and achieve read and write speeds of up to 500 MB/s and 430 MB/s respectively. Providing up to 256GB of storage in an mSATA form factor, these SSDs can provide high density arrays of storage inside single blade configurations. And since they have no moving parts, SSDs run cooler, create less noise, and use less power than HDDs, that result in more efficient and reliable operation that can be optimal solution for microservers
