  • Why ARM Servers, And Why Now?

    how-toIt is a pity that smartphones and tablets did not come along earlier and did not need 64-bit processing and memory addressing sooner than they did. Had these consumer devices (which are now generally thought of as being indispensable for business as well) required such rich circuitry earlier, then the collective of chip manufacturers who are part of the ARM collective might have put some server-class chips into the field a lot earlier and given datacenters some real alternatives to the X86 architecture by now.

  • Linaro Connect Asia 2014 Opening Keynote – Status and Future of ARMv8 Linux & Android [Video]

    Linux on ARMLinaro Connect Asia 2014 has just started in Macau today and will take place until Friday. You can follow the sessions live and/or their recordings via Linaro OnAir YouTube Channel. I’ve watched the opening keynote, and embedded the video at the bottom of this post. The keynote focuses on ARMv8 for Linux and Android on servers, mobile devices, digital home, and more, and involves two main speakers: George Grey, Linaro CEO , and Jon Masters, Chief ARM Architecture at Red Hat.

  • It is 10 years of Linux on ARM for me

    Linux on ARMIt was somewhere between 7th and 11th February 2004 when I got package with my first Linux/ARM device. It was Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 (also named “collie”) and all started… At that time I had Palm M105 (still own) and Sony CLIE SJ30 (both running PalmOS/m68k) but wanted hackable device. But I did not have idea what this device will do with my life.

  • ARM-based Ubuntu Servers: Ready for Partners?

    Linux on ARMWhile the traditional server market suffers a sales slump, the niche market for ARM-based servers is hoping to catch fire. The latest example: Boston Ltd. has unveiled the Viridis 2.0 Microserver -- a potential alternative to HP Moonshot and Dell Project Copper ARM servers. It's certified to run Ubuntu 13.10 and OpenStack Havana, and powered by ARM Cortexc A15 quad-core processor. So what's the channel partner angle?

  • ARM Servers Aim High Despite Tiny Market Share

    Linux on ARMWhen it comes to the server industry, ARM Holdings doesn't seem to abide by dry logic much when making its forecasts, though some might say optimism is not a sin, so it's all fine. The following is an outline of its current stance and expectations.

  • Is Assembly Still Relevant To Most Linux Software?

    Linux on ARMSteve McIntyre and the Linaro Enterprise Group recently analyzed Ubuntu and Fedora software packages to see what software was still relying upon hand-written Assembly code. This was done to see how much real Assembly is being used, to see what the code was used for, and whether it was worth porting to 64-bit ARM / AArch64 / ARMv8.

  • Microservers: How ARM can challenge Intel by befriending Facebook

    Linux on ARMIn the server space Intel is undisputedly king, with its chips inside more than nine in 10 servers shipped. But as the microserver market grows, so does the potential area of opportunity for UK chip designer ARM, which hopes to exploit its expertise in creating low-power chips for mobile devices.

  • Spotlight on the Linux Software Ecosystem - The Fedora Project

    Linux on ARMAs many may know, the Linux operating system has many variations. These are more commonly referred to as Linux distributions or distros, and choosing a distribution to use can be a quagmire. I won't be telling people what distribution to use as each of them have their pros and cons, what I will do is highlight some of the distros that are active in the ARM ecosystem. In the first of my "Spotlight on the Linux software Ecosystem" I am going to cover the Fedora Project.

  • ARM server hype ramps faster than ARM server chips

    Linux on ARMIf I didn't have to man El Reg's systems desk for a paycheck and had a little venture capital to blow, I might start a company called Leg Systems, headquartered on the Isle of Man– not because of its tax haven status (which is eroding), but because my company would sell ARM-based systems and say that we wouldn't charge an arm and a leg for them.

  • Linux 3.7 ARMs for the Future

    Linux on ARMLinux has long been about more than just x86. With the new Linux 3.7 kernel, the open source operating system is improving its multi-architecture support with a significant improvement to the way that ARM support and development is handled.

  • Linaro, ARM and the Road to Total Linux Domination

    Linux on ARMLinaro could "take hold of the huge production of ARMed smart thingies and laptops," suggested blogger Robert Pogson. In fact, "it may be a great end-around play against Wintel. There are quite a number of x86 PCs with OEM-installed GNU/Linux, but there are many more ARMed machines being shipped. There is no reason in the world that GNU/Linux could not come pre-installed on ARMed devices."

  • Linux on ARM breakthrough to take away Torvalds' arse pain

    Linux on ARMA single Linux kernel build that can run on various ARM-powered kit from competing manufacturers has come closer to reality, much to Linus Torvalds' relief.
     

  • One Linux for all ARM systems

    Linux on ARMARM processors and Linux have been married for years. You name an ARM-based device - smartphones, Raspberry Pi, tablets - and you'll find Linux running beside it. It's not been a happy marriage though. For every ARM system on a chip (SoC) there had to be a different Linux spin. With the forthcoming Linux 3.7 kernel we're on our way to seeing all ARM processors working with a single Linux kernel.

  • X86 on ARM Emulator to Reach 80% Efficiency in 2 Years

    Linux on ARMElbrus Technologies, an American company founded by a Russian software development team has announced that they are working on a special x86 on ARM emulator that will allow existing Windows software to run on ARM servers and computers without any need to modify, optimize or recode the used program.

  • Raspberry Pi To Spur The ARM Server Revolution

    Linux on ARMHow could the humble Raspberry Pi help get more ARM servers in data centres? Chris Tyler, one of the people behind Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix, shares his thoughts - For over a year, a small group of researchers from Seneca College's Centre for the Development of Open Technology in Toronto has been working to adapt the popular Fedora Linux distribution to run on Raspberry Pi.

  • Linus Torvalds: ARM Is an Upstanding Member of the Community

    Linux on ARMLinus Torvalds participated in an interesting panel, with Linux kernel maintainers Greg Kroah-Hartman, Sarah Sharp and Ted Ts'o, and reached some interesting conclusions. The panel gathered at LinuxCon North America 2012, under the auspices of The Linux Foundation, in a discussion moderated by James Bottomley.

  • LPC videos on Linux & UEFI, ARM and ACPI 5.0

    Linux on ARMThe organisers of the Linux Plumbers Conference (LPC) 2012, which was held at the end of August in San Diego, have released videos, notes and presentation slidesfrom the conference presentations. The talks are primarily concerned with Linux software that deals with the interaction between hardware and the user interface.

  • Torvalds touts Linux's advances in power, ARM and cell phones

    Linux on ARMSummary: Linux founder Linus Torvalds, the founder and lead developer of Linux, has always been a man of few words and yesterday at LinuxCon 2012 he was no different. Still, the Linux creator hailed advances the kernel has made in the way of ARM support and power management, its progress on the cell phone front, and the fact that the kernel group has maintained its independence from manufacturers.

  • ARM and Nvidia put pressure on x86 in servers

    Linux on ARMUK chip designer ARM has provided the processing for the smartphone revolution, creating hardware for handsets from manufacturers from Apple to ZTE, but now it wants a slice of the server market, too.
