The goal of the Euroserver EU-funded research project is to design and prototype technology, architecture, and systems software for the next generation of “Micro-Servers” to be used in building datacenters.
EUROSERVER aims to progress on the current state of the art in the following domains:
Reduced Energy consumption by: (i) using ARM (64-bit) cores, which are the world-leading low-power processors, (ii) drastically reducing the core-to-memory distance by using novel silicon interposer packaging technology, and (iii) improving on the “energy proportionality”.
Reduced Cost to build and operate each microserver, owing to (i) improved manufacturing yield when multiple small chiplets are placed on a large silicon interposer(2.5D) , and (ii) reduced physical volume of the packaged interposer module and (iii) and energy efficient semiconductor process (FDSOI) .
Better Software efficiency: Next Generation system SW that (i) manages the resources in a server that consists of multiple coherence-islands, and (ii) isolates and protects the multiple workloads from each other when they use the shared server resources of I/O, storage, memory, and interconnects.
