Microsoft announces Project Olympus support for new Intel Xeon Scalable Processors

Community Manager

In March at the Open Compute Project (OCP) annual summit, we announced that Project Olympus, our next generation hyperscale cloud hardware design, attracted the latest in silicon innovation to address the exploding growth of cloud services. Project Olympus was based on a new hardware development model for community based open collaboration that we developed with OCP. Today, Microsoft is proud to announce support for the newest generation of Intel Xeon Scalable Processors within the Project Olympus ecosystem. 


Intel has been a premier platform partner for Project Olympus and the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor will be a cornerstone for this new platform. Microsoft has also worked closely with Intel to engineer Arria-10 FPGAs, which are deployed on every single Project Olympus server, to create a “Configurable Cloud” that can be flexibly provisioned and optimized to support a diverse set of applications and functions.
