Secure Open-Source Systems Leader Raptor Computing Systems Partners with Lattice Showcasing Soft BMC for Server Management and Solid Silicon for Upcoming POWER ISA 3.1-Compliant Server Systems
Raptor Computing Systems showcased the open-source Kestrel soft BMC solution using its Arctic Tern soft BMC development kit and OpenPOWER in the Lattice Semiconductor booth at the Open Compute Project (OCP) Global Summit from Oct. 17 to 19.
Raptor Computing Systems, the industry leader in secure, open computing with a full line of OpenPOWER products, including servers, workstations and desktops, also announced it will be expanding into state-of-the-art OCP and HPC solutions with Raptor’s well known fully owner-controlled and security-centric model.
In addition, Raptor Computing Systems announced it has partnered with US-based Solid Silicon Corporation as its future CPU provider for continued secure, fully open systems and servers, including new OCP and industry- standard form factor offerings with HPC potential. Raptor Computing Systems will be using Solid Silicon S1 CPUs with embedded POWER ISA 3.1-compliant, server class cores as the fully owner-controlled, blob-free successor to its IBM POWER9-powered solutions, with expected availability of systems by late 2024. The Solid Silicon S1 CPU contains an embedded X-class BMC, providing a fully owner-controlled active Root of Trust and BMC stack for all Raptor Computing Systems products using the S1.
Raptor Computing Systems continues to provide POWER9 solutions that equip industry, government, defense, researchers, developers, and individuals worldwide with computing hardware offerings that meet the need for true security and owner control in an insecure, hostile world.
Raptor Computing Systems also announced it has partnered with Lattice, the low power programmable leader, to continue to provide fully open, fully owner-controlled computing solutions leveraging Lattice FPGA technology through the new Solid Silicon X1 chip, expected in the second half of 2024. The Arctic Tern soft BMC development kit may be purchased now for development on compatible hardware prior to the X1-powered Antarctic Tern soft BMC development kit, expected in late 2024 as part of Raptor Computing Systems’ fully open, fully owner-controlled computing solutions lineup.
