The development of large servers is facing multiple challenges. The system combines a mix of design styles from custom VLSI chips to ASIC and SoC designs. The integration of hardware and firmware accumulates further challenges to the functional simulation effort. By adding more and more specialized verification solutions additional constraints are generated and the amount of required resources is increasing. To gain efficiency and to keep staffing requirements reasonable, improvements have to be put in place to integrate and standardize the different environments and tools. This paper talks about some of the enhancements that have been introduced for IBM's server technology.
