HP and AppliedMicro Technology Empower the University of Utah to Further Cloud Computing Research

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

WHAT: A collaboration between Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (Nasdaq:AMCC) and HP (NYSE:HPQ) to power the CloudLab facility at the University of Utah, an academic project allowing researchers as well as the public to build efficient cloud computing environments to run on a wide range of workloads.

"HP Moonshot with the ARM 64-bit system-on-chip server cartridge offers lower cost, higher density and lower power consumption—three factors that will be critical to the future of cloud computing," said Robert Ricci, research assistant professor of computer science, University of Utah. "By giving researchers access to the HP Moonshot platform in our CloudLab facility, we empower them to develop fundamental breakthroughs that have the potential to change the capabilities, performance, reliability and security of future clouds."

CloudLab is powered by HP's Proliant m400, embedded with AppliedMicro's X-Gene® Server on a Chip® solution with eight cores running at up to 2.4GHz.
