The big brothers to that ARM chip inside your smartphone are ready for servers. HP, with its ProLiant Moonshot server line, thinks so and so does German enterprise Linux distributor SUSE.
On July 14, SUSE announced that it was releasing a version of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12 to its partners for 64-bit ARM server processors. With this new port, partners will be able to develop, test and deliver products to the market. Specifically, this build supports 64-bit ARM chips from vendors including AMD, AppliedMicro and Cavium along with server manufacturers Dell, E4 Computer Engineering, HP and SoftIron.
