    Calxeda’s ARM Server Tested ARM based servers hold the promise of extremely low power and excellent performance per Watt ratios. It’s theoretically possible to place an incredible number of servers into a single rack; there are already implementations with as many as 1000 ARM servers in one rack (48 server nodes in a 2U chassis). What’s more, all of those nodes consume less than 5KW combined (or around 5W per quad-core ARM node).

    • I was suprised that the 32-bit Calxeda cluster did so poorly against the year old Xeon Supermicro Sandy Bridge system. The power optimized ARM system with a 705W power supply drew less power than the Supermicro 1280W power supply. Measuring at the wall is what the customer wants, but even AnandTech even points out the problems with their comparison.

      The S1200 Atom cluster numbers or a similarly configured Xeon system will be more interesting for an ARM comparison.
