CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND AND SAN JOSE, CA – Bamboo Systems, a provider of transformative Arm®-based servers, today announced the availability of its newest systems, the B1000N Series, based on a revolutionary new system architecture, Bamboo PANDA™.

Bamboo Systems’ patent-pending Parallel Arm Node Designed Architecture (PANDA), is a revolutionary new approach to server design, crafted to meet the demands of both modern software structures and the challenge of energy-hogging data centers. PANDA-based servers use embedded systems methodologies designed to run modern microservices-based workloads while consuming minimal energy and delivering industry-leading density for high throughput computing. Kubernetes-based applications, edge computing, data analytics and AI/ML deployments are solutions that are well suited for Bamboo.


Bamboo’s PANDA-based systems utilize Arm processors and deliver individually balanced servers by reducing many of the well-known traditional server architecture bottlenecks, often caused by very large processors having to share limited resources. Each B1000N system can be configured with either one or two blades in 1U, with each blade containing four compute nodes and a non-blocking embedded L3 switch exposing dual 40Gb QSFP uplink ports. Each compute node is an independent Arm-based server capable of running Linux, or other compliant operating systems. Nodes use a SolidRun COM Express Type 7 module utilizing the NXP®Semiconductors Layerscape LX2160A with 16 Arm Cortex®-A72 processors with up to 64GB of DDR4 ECC DRAM, hardware accelerated dual 10Gb/s network interfaces and an integrated PCIe NVMe drive, up to 8TB.

A fully configured B1008N consists of 8 servers providing 128 cores, 16 DDR4 memory channels to 512GB DRAM, 24GB/s to 64TB of NVMe storage, fed through 160Gb/s network bandwidth – all in a single rack unit – at approximately 50% of the cost of a traditional Intel-based server.

Bamboo servers include a web-based interface, the intuitive Pandamonium™ Management Software, based on Bamboo’s REST API for integration with orchestration platforms. Pandamonium provides control over system configuration, status updates of components, and the ability to power off individual compute nodes if they are not being used, enabling additional energy savings.

B1000N Series benefits include:

  • Typical savings of 50% of acquisition cost as compared to equivalently configured x86 systems
  • Up to 75% less energy consumption
  • Up to 80% less rack space used
  • Directly attached NVMe flash storage to every application processor to reduce the need for large amounts of DRAM or network bandwidth, delivering high performance throughput to large locally cached datasets
  • Integrated NIC with hardware encryption/decryption and compression/decompression offloading work from the application processor​
  • Dedicated network resources for each node
  • Significantly reduced external switch and cable management​ costs
  • Balanced system resources deliver the computing infrastructure for high-throughput and modern microservices-based software designs

“The x86 system architecture hasn’t particularly changed since the 1980’s and can no longer cope with the demands of modern application workloads or data center energy challenges,” said Tony Craythorne, chief executive officer, Bamboo Systems. “Without the constraints of legacy designs, we are able to deliver servers that are built for today’s microservices-based software, but which consume a fraction of the energy of traditional systems. This enables compute densities never before seen and for a far less cost than that of legacy x86 systems. Our servers are the future of data center and enterprise computing.”

The B1000N starts at under $9,995 and will be available in the USA and Europe in Q3.

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – 3W Infra, a global IaaS hosting provider from the Netherlands, has moved its headquarters to the office space in the maincubes AMS01 colocation data center in Amsterdam Schiphol-Rijk while deploying a private suite in this data center for its global network backbone and comprehensive server infrastructure. According to 3W Infra’s founder and CEO, Murat Bayhan, 3W Infra selected the maincubes AMS01 facility “as maincubes is the only true independent and European data center operator left in the Amsterdam area able to meet 3W Infra’s flexibility and scalability requirements.”

3W Infra had its HQs as well as its server and network infrastructure located in another facility in Amsterdam. During their tenancy this facility was acquired and became part of a global data center conglomerate. 3W Infra delivers highly customer-specific IaaS hosting infrastructures, closely tailored to individual needs, meaning they expect the highest flexibility approach from their data center operator as well. According to 3W Infra, the existing facility isn’t able to fully respond to these dynamic demands.


As a privately-owned European data center operator with energy-efficient and sustainably operated colocation facilities located in Frankfurt, Germany, and Amsterdam, the Netherlands, maincubes provides colocation services from its AMS01 facility for small up to large (multiple MW) deployments, and from rack by rack and cages up to private suites as well as data center in data center setups. maincubes is able to provide 3W Infra with the flexibility and scalability options the company is looking for. The private data center suite offered to 3W Infra has been commissioned at the end of May. At the same time, 3W Infra has moved its headquarters to maincubes AMS01.

Network Backbone Upgrade

3W Infra owns/operates a high-volume global backbone with redundant design. The company’s dedicated dark fiber ring in the Amsterdam region is at the basis of this network, connecting 5 data center Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in Amsterdam. As a hyper connected data center, the maincubes AMS01 facility will now be used as the main network PoP for 3W Infra’s global backbone and be home to its newly purchased network equipment, distributing 3W Infra’s new multiple 100G Transit ports across all PoPs in the Amsterdam area. The migration of this network equipment will take place during the coming weeks.

“maincubes AMS01 in Amsterdam Schiphol-Rijk will now become our flagship data center, providing us with the highest colocation service flexibility we could wish for,” said Murat Bayhan, founder and CEO of 3W Infra. “The fact that maincubes is privately owned and probably the only true independent and European data center operator left in the Amsterdam area works to their advantage. That’s my opinion. They are willing to adapt to the dynamic and unpredictable client needs to which we must respond as an IaaS hosting company. They are perfectly able to meet 3W Infra’s flexibility and scalability requirements, also quickly, allowing us to rapidly deploy highly customized IaaS hosting setups. maincubes acts as a strategic business partner for us, so to say.”

New HQs, OCP, Immersion Cooling

The maincubes AMS01 data center is also home to the European Open Compute Project (OCP) Experience Center, operated by data center vendor Rittal and official OCP solutions provider Circle B. It is available as a demo center, while it can also be used to test new ‘OCP Accepted’ and ‘OCP Inspired’ data center environments as well as telecom solutions. Next to that, maincubes is offering ‘immersion cooling’ (liquid cooling) solutions in dedicated immersion cooling colocation suites in its Amsterdam AMS01 data center, aiming for HPC, AI and machine learning workload deployments.

“As an IaaS hosting provider, we definitely like these extras,” added Mr. Bayhan. “It’s not just colocation maincubes is providing us and it’s quite an innovative and absolutely unique approach, I have to say. I’ve never seen a colocation provider offering so many extra’s under one roof, with different sustainable and state-of-the-art technology solutions to select and use.”

“We’re providing Murat and his team with the ability to scale their infrastructure whenever needed,” said Joris te Lintelo, Vice President Sales at maincubes. “We’re also empowering them with a highly flexible approach. And if they would like to, they can test these new and innovative technologies or offer them to their clients. We’ll make sure they will feel right at home here. On top of that, the office and storage space we offer 3W Infra at maincubes AMS01 allow their engineers to quickly respond to provisioning requests or any requests that may occur.”
