Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC) revealed the availability of Mudan, its first full Ceph storage reference platform, at Red Hat Summit 2016. It was built on 64-bit ARMv8-A technology with the support of Applied Micro's X-Gene® Server on a Chip® (SoC) solution.

Applied Micro Circuits indicated Mudan was Jointly developed by it and Red Hat and that it is an optimized Ceph storage solution to coincide with the upstream release of Ceph 10.2.1 (Jewel) and runs on RHELSA7.2.

The company's Associate VP for software and platform engineering, Kumar Sankaran, said, "Our collaboration with Red Hat to develop the Mudan platform is another proof point of the growing demand for X-Gene-based platform solutions, which provide superior storage performance while significantly lowering the total cost of ownership. We're ecstatic to be able to introduce the world's first full Ceph storage server reference design powered by Applied Micro's ARMv8-A based X-Gene."

Applied Micro said Mudan is a fully-featured storage reference platform with a total of 14 storage disks in a 12+2 configuration. It has a total memory capacity of maximum of 128GB. The company added that the server comes in multiple form factors. That included 1U, 1U with hot swap and a 2U chassis, serving the needs of customers in all geographies around the world, and features low-power 2x10GbE integrated Ethernet and an IPMIv2.0 compliant management framework using an on-board baseboard management controller.

The company indicated that the full system features included USB ports, front panel LEDs and control, rack management support, compliance and qualification, apart from offering configurability for add-on storage adapter cards from different vendors.

On Monday, the stock shed 4.77 percent.
