  • Another ARM port in Debian - yay!

    Linux on ARMarm64 is officially a release architecture for Jessie, aka Debian version 8. That's taken a lot of manual porting and development effort over the last couple of years, and it's also taken a lot of CPU time - there are ~21,000 source packages in Debian Jessie!

  • How to Install Ubuntu ARM64 on Nexus 9 Tablet

    Linux on ARMHTC Nexus 9 is one of the first 64-bit ARM platform with powerful ARMv8 cores (e.g. not Cortex A53) that both commercially available, and relatively affordable at $399 to $599, at least significantly cheaper than the server boards such as Applied Micro X-C1.

  • Fujitsu MB86S70 and MB86S73 ARM Cortex A15 & A7 Processors Run Linux for the Embedded Market

    Linux on ARMI like to check the ARM Linux kernel mailing list from time to time, as you may discover a few upcoming ARM processors. This week I found out Exynos 5433 and Exynos 7 are actually two different processors (thanks David!), and that AMD had submitted code for their 64-bit ARM Opteron A1100 SoC for servers.

  • Linaro 14.11 Release with Kernel 3.18, Android 5.0, & Ubuntu Utopic. Debian 8.0 Gets ARM64 Port

    Linux on ARMLinaro 14.11 has been released with Linux kernel 3.18-rc5 (baseline), Linux 3.10.61 & 3.14.25 (LSK, same versions as last month), and Android 4.4.2, 4.4.4, and for the first time Android 5.0 Lollipop.

  • Linda Knippers of HP talks about m400 ARM Server cartridge in HP Moonshot

    Linux on ARMLinda from HP describes HP's new Moonshot systems, including the new m400 ARM server cartridge, which was demoed at Linaro Connect. HP has launched the TI 32bit and the AppliedMicro X-Gene 64bit ARM Server in HP Moonshot.

  • HP Moonshot ARM Server runs AppliedMicro X-Gene 64bit ARMv8 Octa-Core

Each cartridge is an individual 64-bit ARM server using AppliedMicro's X-Gene SOC, with 8 cores and 64Gb of RAM with 2 Mellanox 10G NICs. The servers are running OpenStack with a mix of cloud controller services and Nova compute nodes.

  • Applied Micro X-Gene (64-bit ARM) vs Intel Xeon (64-bit x86) Performance and Power Usage

    Linux on ARMA group of researcher at CERN have evaluated Applied Micro X-Gene 1 64-bit ARM XC-1 development board against Intel Xeon E5-2650 and Xeon Phi SE10/7120 systems, and one of them, David Abdurachmanov, presented their findings at ACAT’ 14 conference (Advanced Computing and Analysis Techniques) by listing some of the issues they had to port their software to 64-bit ARM, and performance efficiency of the three systems for data processing of High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments like those at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), where performance-per-watt is important, as computing systems may scale to several hundred thousands cores.

  • Red Hat Linux ARM Partner Early Access Program on ARMv8 64bit AMD Seattle and Applied Micro Mustang

    Linux on ARMLinuxCon 2014 - It's practically a given that the ARM processor architecture – so beloved by makers of small devices everywhere – will graduate to servers soon. But before ARM servers can ship in any significant volume, a standardized hardware platform that specifically targets the data center is a must.

  • Fedora 21 and ARM aarch64 status for alpha

    Linux on ARMWith the Fedora 21 Alpha freeze looming in the rear view mirror, although the object wasn’t as close as it would appear, I thought it was high time that I gave a brief overview of the state of ARM aarch64 in Fedora. Some might assume the silence means not a lot has been happening but this is extremely far from the truth!

  • Red Hat Rolls Up Linux For ARM Servers

    Linux on ARMThe great thing about Linux is that it runs on nearly everything, and if ARM servers ever take off, they will do so because Linux workloads are ported from X86 and other architectures to run on 64-bit ARM processors. The classic chicken and egg problem is making it difficult for an ARM server ecosystem to develop, and Red Hat is going to help this along with an effort it calls the ARM Partner Early Access Program.

  • AMD Announces the Availability of 64-bit ARM Opteron Developer Kits
