Mil/COTS server blade hosts dual Skylake CPUs
Artesyn Embedded Technologies has added a packet processing and high performance server blade, the ATCA-7540, based on dual Intel Xeon Scalable processors (in the Skylake series). The card has been designed to meet the long life cycle needs of COTS contractors, bringing the latest processors to military, aerospace and government applications.

Designed for compute-intensive tasks such as deep packet inspection (DPI), firewalls, intrusion prevention and data encryption/decryption, the ATCA-7540 server blade targets high performance network requirements in commercial, government and defense communications networks.

 

The ATCA-7540 provides a migration path and future-proof platform for defence applications in air/shipborne data centres, ground control stations, network data analytics, ad-hoc mobile networks and other C4ISR tasks. The selected processor family combined with Artesyn’s engineering and supply chain expertise provides a performance and longevity-of-supply improvement over existing server blades. Artesyn expects its selected processors to have a 15-year life cycle.

 

Built around commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies, the AdvancedTCA (ATCA) bladed architecture follows the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) modular open systems approach (MOSA). With scalable performance, ease of maintenance, reduced cabling and multivendor interoperability, Artesyn’s ATCA technology has been selected for multiple applications in military deployments.

 

The CentOS operating system will be available for the Artesyn ATCA-7540 and the blade is designed to support other open source and commercial operating systems thanks to pre-installed BIOS, IPMC firmware and Artesyn’s Basic Blade Services (BBS) software. The blade will also support RedHawk Linux RTOS, an industry-standard real-time operating system selected by the U.S. Navy as its open architecture operating system for a long list of programs.

 

The ATCA-7540 can be configured for virtualization using Linux KVM or VMware ESXi, and is designed to operate with the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK).
