Bamboo B1000N Arm Servers will save you
50% of your acquisition cost
75% of your energy consumption
80% of your rack space

Designed using PANDA architecture to deliver massive scalable throughput

Arm Servers Designed for the Modern Data Center

Bamboo’s revolutionary Parallel Arm Node Designed Architecture delivers the energy efficiency, compactness and linear scalability needed for modern high-performance workloads as well as processing at the edge.

This is not one server in a box, this is eight Linux servers that can cooperate to deliver high throughput computing, all in 1U.

Eight 16-core servers in 1U
B1000N Series Arm Server


Well balanced resources reduces known performance bottlenecks


Embedded systems methodologies substantially reduces energy consumption


Systems that generate significantly less heat means dramatically increased density


Performance scales linearly as more systems are added


Utilizing COTS components means less acquisition cost per workload

Ideal for Modern Application Workloads

Bamboo Systems B1000N

By reducing traditional server design bottlenecks, our well-balanced Arm-based servers are perfect for microservices-based software. We reduce contention by dedicating resources such as memory channels, and network and storage I/O to each individual processor.

Using embedded systems methodologies Bamboo is able to use substantially less energy per system, causing less heat, and delivering unprecedented levels of density.

As each unique Arm server has dedicated resources, scaling becomes predictable and linear as you add additional systems. Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components drive down cost for a highly competitive solution.

TCO over 3 years – Intel vs AWS vs Bamboo

Unmatched price performance

Comparing the 3 year TCO of similar systems using the AWS TCO calculator, with the following inputs:

  • Comparison is with on-prem physical
  • 8 servers, with each having:
    • 8 cores (Max allowed)
    • 64GB memory
    • 32TB of SSD SAN Storage

Bamboo B1008N:

  • 8 Arm servers with each having
    • 16 cores
    • 64GB memory
    • 32TB of SSD PCIe connected Storage

Even though the Bamboo B1008N is only 52% of the TCO of AWS, it has:

  • twice as many cores with an estimate of 50% more performance.
  • 40Gb/s network bandwidth rather than 10Gb/s
  • SSDs designed for read/write performance, where as AWS configured for read performance by using the gp2 service rather than io1.
  • Greater storage throughput capability as SSDs are connected via PCIe rather than SAN.

Extra information:

  • Added AWS Backup service to make equitable to on-prem
  • B1008N network costs ~50% less than Intel as traffic is contained within the system due to the included Layer 3 switches.
  • B1008N racking costs are proportional to rack units used.
  • AWS does not include IOPS
