Calxeda Is Now Out Of The ARM Linux Server Race
While Calxeda was leading (and driving) the ARM server race for a while with their Linux-friendly power-efficient ARMv7 EnergyCore SoCs, they're now out of the race as the company is shutting down.
Calxeda was too cash hungry and not in full production yet, besides still being bound to 32-bit Cortex-A9/A15 processor cores, and they've now had to close down to running out of funds ($90+ MM USD) and having a poor financial outlook with being unable to attain an additional round of VC funding.
Their hardware was interesting and I had spent several days out at their headquarters last year evaluating the original ECX-1000 SoC and its performance was interesting, but data centers seem more interested in using more powerful Xeon CPUs or Atom-based solutions when it comes to low-power servers. There's also other ARM server players that have come around since Calxeda's inception several years ago.
