Microsoft tweaks its server specs as part of Open Compute Project


In January, Microsoft came out with initial server specifications, building on its experience running big-time data centers, as it joined the Open Compute Project. The idea was to share its experience running those big facilities with hardware makers so they could build the equipment Microsoft and potentially other big tech providers, needs to run infrastructure efficiently.

Now it’s tweaked some of those design specifications with its Open CloudServer v2 recommendations which it’s announcing at the Open Compute Project’s  European Summit

Open Compute Project logoIn a blog post, Kushagra Vaid, GM of server engineering for Microsoft’s cloud and enterprise group, wrote that improvements include:

  • A dual-processor design, built on Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 (‘Haswell’) CPUs, enabling 28 cores of compute power per blade, and reflecting Microsoft’s joint engineering collaboration with Intel to develop the next generation board
  • Advanced networking for low latency, high bandwidth, highly-virtualized environments, based on 40-gigabit Ethernet networking, with support for routable RDMA over…
