Cavium, Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, cloud wired and wireless networking, today announced plans for server contributions to the Open Compute Project Foundation based on the ThunderX family of workload optimised processors.  In addition Cavium announced that it is joining the Open Compute Project.

As a member of the Open Compute Project, Cavium is committed to provide leadership in the core areas of System and Server design. Cavium will contribute the first Open Rack compatible motherboard specification for cache-coherent, multi-socket configurations targeted for the ARMv8 architecture.  This design will be based on Cavium’s workload-optimised ThunderX processor family which integrates the Cavium Coherent Processor Interconnect in addition to full support for integrated high bandwidth multiport switches, high speed storage and PCI-e interfaces.

This commitment will include the contribution of designs, specifications and community engagement.  With Cavium’s history of industry leading technical expertise in the security and networking market, combined with today’s announcement of the ThunderX SoC family for the server market, Cavium is well positioned to help the OCP community continue to build on its mission of efficient designs for scalable computing.

“At the Open Compute Foundation we continue to see our members have a growing impact on the direction of the Hyperscale and Cloud Computing infrastructure in today’s Data Centers. Cavium’s technical expertise and core competence in the fundamental areas that matter aligns perfectly with the OCP mission,” said Cole Crawford, Executive Director of the Open Compute Project Foundation. “We look forward to working closely with the Cavium team and benefiting from their contributions to OCP.”
