Transmeta's Efficeon Processor Enables Compact, High Performance JM-net Blade Server

Transmeta Corporation, the leader in efficient computing, today announced that Japan-based JM-net, Inc. will ship a high performance and power efficient blade server in Japan and Asia based on Transmeta's Efficeon(TM) processor.

JM-net's EC86S blade server, for data center and grid computing environments, utilizes Transmeta's Efficeon to provide a compact system design with minimal heat dissipation. This allows excellent performance, per watt, per unit of space. This metric is critical for datacenters, which often face real estate and system cooling expenses that exceed system costs.

"We evaluated several potential processors for this blade server, and the Efficeon processor best suited the design and performance requirements of this very compact system," said Kazou Ueki, president of JM-net, Inc. "Transmeta's technology is very well suited for the blade server space, particularly in the way it helps reduce the total cost of system ownership for end customers."

The 19-inch 3U JM-net device is scheduled to begin shipping in May and accommodates 12 blades with 12 Efficeon processors. Additional system features for each blade include:

-- L1/L2 Cache: 192KB (128KB+64KB) /1MB

-- Main Memory: DDR SDRAM 256MB (max.1GB, ECC supported)

-- Network: 10 Base-T / 100Base-TX

-- Disk Capacity: 20GB (IDE)

-- Interface: 1-slot PCI bus, conforming to PCI 2.2, mounted on each node

-- OS: Linux or Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP

-- Certified Specifications: FCC Class A, VCCI Class A, CE EN5501, 55022, CB

-- Fully tolerant power source for high reliability

"JM-net's blade server highlights the capability of the Efficeon processor to combine high performance with energy efficiency to create high compute density in a small, fanless blade," said Arthur L. Swift, senior vice president of marketing, Transmeta Corporation.

JM-net's EC86S blade server will be available in Japan and Asia through direct sales and via resellers. The initial system pricing starts at approximately US$1,800. Initial pricing does not include operating system or optional configurations for the hard drive and system memory.
