Calxeda’s done, but ARM’s days in the data center might only be getting started

Calxeda might have failed in its quest to sell servers built with ARM-based processors, but there are plenty of people who are confident the ARM architecture will find a home in the data center. In fact, AppliedMicro CEO Paramesh Gopi recently argued as companies like his begin selling brawnier 64-bit ARM processors (as opposed to the 32-bit processors often referred to as “cell phone chips”), the server industry is going to see demand for them blow up.

Western Digital My Book Live Duo review

Our My Book Live Duo test unit came preloaded with dual 2TB hard drives (4TB total), though you can also get a 6TB or 8TB version. The drives are also removable, so you can upgrade or change them yourself if desired. The specs are lower than many of its competitors, however, with an Applied Micro APM82181 CPU running at 800MHz and 256MB of RAM. On the plus side this means it uses very little juice, drawing just 13W in use. It has a single Gigabit Ethernet connection, as well as a single USB 2.0 port. It uses passive cooling, so make sure it’s in a well-vented area with nothing on top.
