Packet, the leading bare metal cloud for developers, will demonstrate its full complement of datacenter automation tools at the Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies event today featuring the launch of the Qualcomm Centriq™ 2400 processor. Packet’s demo will highlight tools including OpenFaas (function-as-a-service), Docker, and Docker Swarm that enable a true serverless compute model for microservices. To fully leverage the highly threaded, high performance cores of Qualcomm Centriq 2400 server processor, Packet will also use Caffe running at scale across hundreds of cores to demonstrate machine learning. Packet’s demonstration at the launch event builds upon its recent collaboration with Qualcomm where the two companies introduced the Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor to developers at leading industry conferences throughout July, August and September.
“Qualcomm Centriq 2400 is purpose built for born-in-the cloud usage,” said Ram Peddibhotla, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies. “Through high core count and exceptional throughput performance, our product natively lends itself to a serverless compute model in which customers can dynamically scale their microservice needs and performance requirements instantaneously. Packet’s combination of developer automation and bare metal scaling is a great way to experience the ease, robustness, and advantages of an Arm-based datacenter in real-time.”
