M2DC (Modular Microserver DataCentre) is an EU funded project, developing a neandw kind of server in order to significantly increase a system’s overall energy efficiency as well as TCO. The new hardware platform called RECS®|Box (version 4.0) continues work of previous EU projects (e.g. FiPS), resulting in a heterogeneous platform of different highly energy-efficient microservers. This comprises high performance and low power systems, as well as hardware accelerators like GPGPUs or FPGAs.
