Axiado Corporation, an AI-enhanced hardware cybersecurity company, and Wiwynn, a leading cloud IT infrastructure provider that designs and manufactures advanced server and storage solutions for data centres, are set to revolutionise the landscape of server technology.
The partnership ushers in a new era of data centre security by developing servers powered by Axiado’s innovative Trusted Control/Compute Units (TCUs).
“Platforms such as Wiwynn’s OCP Accepted™ Yosemite V3, a high-density, multi-sled system, provide a launching pad for players that seek to innovate and leverage the momentum behind highly modular systems that are essential to meet changing workload requirements,” said Bijan Nowroozi, CTO of OCP. “Wiwynn and Axiado jointly push the boundary with new features in platform security based on an approved OCP specification.”
Leveraging the Open Compute Project’s (OCP) open-source multi-node “Yosemite V3” server specification, the collaboration aims to develop a groundbreaking solution that combines the strengths of both companies. The forthcoming TCU-based servers will not only leverage the capabilities of the preexisting service platform but also contribute to the seamless and efficient management of data centres with its integrated platform root of trust (PRoT) and hardware-anchored, AI-driven platform security. The partnership signifies a convergence of security and performance to address the evolving needs of the cloud service provider (CSP) industry.
Axiado’s TCUs incorporate a blend of AI, data collection, and software within a compact, power-efficient system-on-chip (SoC). This single-chip solution includes real-time and proactive AI capabilities for preemptive threat detection and comprehensive protection through a dedicated coprocessor. It also seamlessly integrates the root of trust (RoT), baseboard management controller (BMC), trusted platform module (TPM), and complex programmable logic device (CPLD) functions.
“The collaboration between Wiwynn and Axiado signifies a critical leap forward for the cloud service provider and enterprise markets,” said Steven Lu, Executive Vice President at Wiwynn, “This shift toward modular systems aligns perfectly with the industry’s trajectory and reinforces Wiwynn’s position as a Tier 1 player.”
“The integration of Axiado’s TCUs into Wiwynn’s OCP-recognised servers opens doors to an architecture based upon OCP-approved specifications, enabled by hardware-anchored, AI-driven solutions,” said Gopi Sirineni, President and CEO at Axiado. “By harnessing the capabilities of Axiado’s TCUs, we’re poised to streamline the deployment of next-generation systems crucial for the future of data centres.”
