EUROSERVER: Share-anything scale-out micro-server design
Paper in proceedings, 2016

This paper provides a snapshot summary of the trends in the area of micro-server development and their application in the broader enterprise and cloud markets. Focusing on the technology aspects, we provide an understanding of these trends and specifically the differentiation and uniqueness of the approach being adopted by the EUROSERVER FP7 project. The unique technical contributions of EUROSERVER range from the fundamental system compute unit design architecture, through to the implementation approach both at the chiplet nanotechnological integration, and the everything-close physical form factor. Furthermore, we offer optimizations at the virtualisation layer to exploit the unique hardware features, and other framework optimizations, including exploiting the hardware capabilities at the run-time system and application layers.
