Eight-Way Server

Definition - What does Eight-Way Server mean?

An eight-way server is a type of server computing architecture in which eight processors are embedded together within a single server CPU, or chassis. It is built on a multicore processor or the symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) architecture that supports multiple processors working simultaneously within a server system.

Techopedia explains Eight-Way Server

An eight-way server is primarily used in enterprise computing environments and is designed to achieve higher server computational performance, processing performance, scalability and fault tolerance by integrating multiple processors within a single processor die. Typically, an eight-way server’s locally embedded/integrated eight processors can operate/process together to perform a single task, or work separately on individual tasks. Eight-way servers increase computational/processing power, but they also reduce the additional electric power and internal components that would be required for separate servers and processors.
