  • Calxeda ECX-1000 Benchmarks vs. Intel Atom, TI OMAP4

    Linux on ARMLast week I began delivering benchmarks of the low-power yet massively scalable Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Server and followed the initial tests with some ARM compiler benchmarks and other benchmarks from this 5-Watt Linux Server.

  • Dell lends Apache ARM software efforts a hand

    Android-x86The hardware engineers at Dell's Data Center Solutions custom server unit have bent some metal around Calxeda's EnergyCore ARM server processors and donated a box to the Apache Software Foundation so it can tweak and tune the Apache web server as well as the Hadoop data munching stack and the Cassandra NoSQL data store to run on the EnergyCore EXC-1000 processors and their integrated Layer 2 networking switch.

  • Tests Continue From The 5-Watt Ubuntu ARM Server

    Linux on ARMAfter yesterday publishing the first extensive benchmark results for the Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Servers in the form of the 1.1GHz and 1.4GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 nodes running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 12.10, here are more benchmarks to share today from the "5-Watt ARM Server" on Linux.

  • Ubuntu Linux Bets Big on ‘DevOps,’ ARM Servers

    Linux on ARMIt's one thing to build a cloud data center. It's another to actually run it. - Many companies are selling products and services to help customers build Amazon-style clouds in their own data centers, so management and maintenance tools are becoming a way for vendors to distinguish their products from one another.

  • Penguin builds ARM-based Linux server on Calxeda SoCs

    Linux on ARMPenguin Computing launched an ARM-based server for scale-out architectures, using Calxeda's System-on-Chip (SoC) server nodes.
     

  • Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Server

    Linux on ARMEarlier this month I was down in Texas visiting the Calxeda office where for the past four years they have been busy trying to revolutionize the server market through ultra-low power ARM-based servers. This morning one of their partners, Boston Limited, is formally launching their energy-efficient "Viridis" server built around Calxeda's EnergyCore ECX-1000 hardware. In this article are the first of some public Calxeda ARM benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux while more results will be out in the coming days.

  • Xen ARM in Linux!

    Linux on ARMLast weekend Linus Torvalds pulled the Xen on ARM patches in his Linux tree, so as of Saturday the 7th of October, we have Xen ARM in upstream Linux! This makes Xen the first hypervisor supported by Linux on the ARM platform!

  • 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.

  • Red Hat: Linux on ARM is No Joke

    Linux on ARMThere was a time when x86 was the only major chip architecture that Linux vendor Red Hat cared about. That time has now come to an end as the Linux giant is now taking a serious look at ARM.

  • Canonical Promotes ARM Servers Powered by Ubuntu

    Linux on ARMCanonical thinks that the ARM servers are the way of the future, and they are doing everything in their power to assure themselves that they're ready for the massive adoption of low-powered servers.

  • Codethink announced its first generation high-performance power-efficient ARM server, the Baserock™ Slab

    Linux on ARMThe Baserock™ Slab is a multi-processor server featuring 8 quad-core ARMv7-A CPUs running at 1.33GHz and an on-board high-speed network switch fabric with 5Gbit/s between the CPUs and 2x10Gbit/s external. Each compute node gets additional performance with its own dedicated low-latency mSATA solid state drive.

  • ARM Calxeda Highbank Ubuntu Linux Benchmarks

    Linux on ARMBack in June there were Calxeda's ARM Highbank performance claims of delivering 15x performance-per-Watt superior performance to Intel's Xeon x86 processor. At long last, independent benchmarks of a quad-core Calxeda Highbank board are beginning to surface.

  • 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.

  • Your very own ARM-based Ubuntu servers in the cloud… for free

    Linux on ARMNot content with dominating the world of smartphones and tablets, makers of low-power ARM chips are setting their sights on the server market. While x86 servers are still the norm, there have been hints for some time that ARM might become a presence in the data center. Another small, early step toward an ARM future was taken this week as the makers of an infrastructure-as-a-service testbed added ARM servers as a free option for developers.

  • Xen Virtualization On ARM Hits New Milestone

    Linux on ARMWith the ongoing work to better enable virtualization support for the ARM architecture under Linux, the developers working on Xen enablement have reached a new milestone.
     

  • Ubuntu 12.04 Server ARMHF Image for Mele A1000/A2000

    Linux on ARMI’ve seen quite a few people who want to use the Mele A1000 – or its brother the Mele A2000 – media player as a server (Sacrilege!). Since recent ARM servers are running Ubuntu 12.04, and Tom Gall has (conveniently) posted the live-build config necessary to generate Ubuntu 12.04 Server image this week, I thought I’d give it a try on Mele A1000.

  • Building A 96-Core Ubuntu ARM Solar-Powered Cluster

    Linux on ARMLast week I shared results from the Phoronix 12-core ARM Linux mini cluster that was constructed out of six PandaBoard ES development boards. Over the weekend, a 96-core ARM cluster succeeded this build. While packing nearly 100 cores and running Ubuntu Linux, the power consumption was just a bit more than 200 Watts. This array of nearly 100 processor cores was even powered up by a solar panel.

  • 12-Core ARM Cluster Benchmarked Against Intel Atom, Ivy Bridge, AMD Fusion

    Linux on ARMLast week I shared my plans to build a low-cost, 12-core, 30-watt ARMv7 cluster running Ubuntu Linux. The ARM cluster that is built around the PandaBoard ES development boards is now online and producing results... Quite surprising results actually for a low-power Cortex-A9 compute cluster. Results include performance-per-Watt comparisons to Intel Atom and Ivy Bridge processors along with AMD's Fusion APU.

  • Fedora ARM head claims 64-bit ARM chips will be tipping point

    Linux on ARMTHE RED HAT sponsored Fedora Linux distribution believes a 64-bit ARM architecture will prove to be the tipping point for ARM servers. - The Fedora Project, which is heavily sponsored by enterprise Linux vendor Red Hat, has seemingly been lagging behind Canonical's Ubuntu Linux distribution following a round of server announcements from Dell and HP professing certification for Ubuntu. However Jon Masters, principal software engineer at Red Hat and leader of Fedora's ARM effort told The INQUIRER that 64-bit ARM chips will prove to be the killer feature for ARM-based servers.

  • Preview: A Cheap 12-Core, 30-Watt Ubuntu Cluster
