Serpens for Kepler
Modular Microserver Data Centre
The main goal of the M2DC project is to develop a new class of low-power TCO-optimised appliances with built-in efficiency and dependability enhancements. The appliances will be easy to integrate with a broad ecosystem of management software and fully software-defined to enable optimisation for a variety of future demanding applications in a cost-effective way.
The M2DC flexible server architecture with heterogeneous hardware including ARM CPUs and FPGAs will enable customisation and smooth adaptation to various types of data centres whereas advanced management strategies and system efficiency enhancements (SEE) will be used to achieve high levels of energy efficiency, performance, security and reliability.
M2DC will demonstrate turnkey appliances tailored to meet requirements from various application domains such as image processing, IoT data processing, cloud computing or even HPC.
PSNC corrdinates the project, leads development of applications, maintains the main project testbed and works on energy- and thermal-aware resource management.
The M2DC consortium consists of 14 partners, including leading industrial partners such as ARM, Huawei, Vodafone, CEWE. The budget of the project is 8mln€.
Scheduled finish date: 2018-12-31
