General Micro Systems (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) has introduced the “Zeus” (SCZ91X), a “super-server” that uses a hypervisor to concurrently run numerous, fully independent operating systems (guests). Using a Westmere-EP® processor, the Zeus is based on six physical CPU cores, with hyperthreading for a total of 12 cores. Each core operates at up to 2.4 GHz, with the ability to run in TurboBoost mode up to 2.67 GHz.

The Zeus features up to 96 Gbytes of RAM organized in three banks. Each RAM bank consists of two DDR- 3 DIMM arrays with Error Correcting Code (ECC). The ECC RAM supports up to 1333 Mega Transfers per Second (MTS) to/from the CPU. The Zeus comprises a host CPU I/O and six Virtual Machine I/O (VMIO) sites, several of which are available as standards. Two removable 2.5" SSD drives are supported on the host side, as well as one PMC/XMC site and one mSATA drive for a local boot device.

Each VMIO site is fully independent, and is connected to the host CPU via PCI-Express lanes only. All I/O transactions are fully monitored through the TPM/TXT/VT-x security engines to assure access is authorized by the host CPU. The Zeus operates from -40°C to +85°C at full load. With conformal coating, the shock-proof device is protected from salt, fog, humidity, fungus, and rain. The Zeus supports the most common hypervisors by VMware, WindRiver and Microsoft, and can be shipped with operating systems such as Windows® 7, Linux® and VXWorks®, already installed.
