“We have a strong business commitment to energy savings and environmentally conscious solutions for our customers,” said Spark Chen, Vice President, Cloud Computing Division, Aaeon. “The low power alternative of ARM coupled with the increased throughput of Calxeda’s fabric and capability to save space with additional storage density, is a game-changer in countless datacenters and we are thrilled to be the partner delivering these solutions.”

Calxeda has been chosen to power Aaeon’s Indus ARM-based storage appliance server to bring power savings, higher throughput and additional density to the cloud storage market. Aaeon selected Calxeda EnergyCore processors for its servers after learning that object, block and file storage applications can easily be loaded onto an Indus platform using a standard ARM-based Linux release. The Aaeon Indus solution includes two 10 Gbps uplinks to handle the maximum throughput driven by up to 2 compute nodes and 10 3.5” HDDs in a single 1U chassis. Aaeon will be showing its power optimized Calxeda-based Indus servers at Computex.

“We are proud to be chosen by Aaeon as their lead entrant ARM solutions in the storage space,” said Bob Baughman, Vice President of Sales, Calxeda. “We know how significantly ARM can positively affect datacenter efficiency, especially with the growing demand for storage capacity and power efficient platforms. Now Aaeon and its customers and software partners can take advantage of these benefits using our ARM-based power optimized solutions.”

Aaeon is one of a growing network of partners working with Calxeda, building on its formal establishment of an Asian subsidiary, Calxeda Asia Ltd, in June 2012. That subsidiary now employs a team of over 25 Calxeda sales and engineering resources working directly with many more local country service providers in a top level distributor network. Now with a presence in 10 cities in China, Japan and Taiwan, Calxeda’s Asia distributor network is led by Macnica Group, which supports Calxeda through its subsidiaries including Galaxy Far East Corporation in Taiwan, Cytech Technology Limited in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and Singapore, and Altima Corporation in Japan. Partners like Aaeon are critical in getting Calxeda-based solutions deployed and operational with customers across Asia and around the world.
