Calxeda Readies Low-Power ARM Servers
March 30th, 2011 By: Rich Miller
As data center operators seek improved energy efficiency, there’s been growing interest in adapting low-power processors designed for mobile devices and using them to power servers. Chips from ARM Holdings power the world’s iPhones and many other mobile devices, and will soon be heading to the server. Leading the way is Calxeda (formerly Smooth-Stone), an Austin-based startup developing low-energy, high-power servers based on ARM chips. At the recent Structure Big Data conference, we spoke with Karl Freund, the Vice President of Marketing for Calxeda, who provided an overview of the company’s products and roadmap. This video runs about 7 minutes, 30 seconds.

Seems like ARM is investing quite a bit towards energy efficient scalable server platforms.
For example the web tells me that ARM is partnering with other organizations to develop many-core platforms. Ref: http://www.encore-project.eu/
