SeaMicro Recognized in Prestigious Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation AwardsCompany a Runner-Up in Computing Systems and Storage Category (October 19, 2011)
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/19/11 -- SeaMicro, the Silicon Valley pioneer of low power server technology, today announced that its breakthrough SM10000 family of energy efficient servers has been named a runner-up in the esteemed Wall Street Journal's annual Technology Innovation Awards, in the category of Computing Systems and Storage. Among the largest names in the industry, including IBM, HP, Intel, and Yahoo!, start-up SeaMicro was chosen from more than 605 applicants. The winners were chosen by a team of the Journal's editors, as well as representatives from venture capital firms and leading universities.
The award recognizes SeaMicro's second-generation energy efficient server, the SM10000-64. Announced in February 2011, the SM10000-64 uses one-quarter the power and one-quarter the space of the best in class competitor. Since then, SeaMicro's increased the density of the SM10000-64 with the launch of the SM10000-64HD version, which uses one-quarter the power and takes just one-sixth the space of the competition.
Launched in July 2011, the SM10000-64HD is the highest performing and most energy efficient X86 server ever built. The SM10000-64HD integrates SeaMicro's patented fabric technology and 384 dual core Intel® Atom processors in a 17.5 inch tall system. As with all SeaMicro servers, the SM10000-64HD is plug and play and requires no changes to existing software.
"Just months after SeaMicro was named a top greentech company by the Journal, we are doubly proud to be recognized again, this time with the industry's most coveted award," said Andrew Feldman, CEO, SeaMicro. "By inventing technology that spans multiple engineering domains, and by solving problems previously believed to be intractable, we have been able to build the industry's most energy efficient servers. Our servers have now been deployed around the world, saving thousands of kilowatt hours of electricity, and eliminating hundreds of tons of greenhouse gas emissions."
SeaMicro will be honored at an awards ceremony hosted by the Wall Street Journal in Redwood City on November 8, in conjunction with the Dow Jones VentureWire FASTech conference. For more information on the winners of this years' award, please visit www.WSJ.com/Reports.
SeaMicro is transforming the data center landscape by building servers that draw one-quarter the power and take one-sixth the space of traditional servers. By delivering breakthrough innovations borne of multiple technology domains -- CPU design, virtualization, supercomputing and networking -- SeaMicro has created a new server architecture purpose-built for scale out infrastructures such as those found in the web-tier, online gaming, search and index computation. SeaMicro was founded in 2007 and is backed by Khosla Ventures, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Crosslink Capital, as well as leading public corporations. The company also received the largest Department of Energy grant given to a server company, $9.3 million as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
