  • ARM-based servers step closer to the datacentre as software support builds

    Linux on ARMSummary: The software support needed to make 64-bit ARM-based servers feasible for business gets a boost from the recently released Linux kernel.

  • 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.

    Linux on ARMARM SBSA specification for server supports up to 268,435,456 CPU cores for the second level of standardization on one or a combination of SoCs. We’re not quite up there just yet, but Cavium ThunderX is an ARM server SoC with up to 48 cores on a single chip, which is the highest number of cores I’ve ever heard of in an ARM SoC.

  • Applied Micro, Canonical claim the first ARM 64-bit server production software deployment

    Linux on ARMSummary: Are 64-bit ARM processors ready for the datacenter? Applied Micro and Canonical claim they are with an upcoming demo of the OpenStack cloud using Ubuntu Linux on an X-Gene server.

  • 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.

  • How to set up a lightweight web server on Raspberry Pi

    Linux on ARMThere are a variety of web server software available for Linux-based platforms including Raspbian. Using one of those available web server software, we can turn Raspberry Pi into a 24/7 available portable web server. In this case, however, we must understand that Raspberry Pi has hardware limitations in terms of CPU clock speed, memory, etc. As such, we want to avoid running resource-heavy software (e.g., Apache) on Raspberry Pi.

  • Dedicated Hosting Services on ARM Development Boards (Cubieboard2, Raspberry Pi, ODROID…)

    Linux on ARMAt least two companies have recently launched hosting services using dedicated ARM servers based on low cost development boards: NanoXion with its NX-BOX service powered by PiBox (Raspberry Pi) and CubieBox (Cubieboard 2) microservers, and miniNodes with servers based on Cubieboard2 first, then ODROID development boards, and possibly AllWinner OptimusBoard once/if it becomes available.

  • CAVIUM 64bit SoCs for Base Stations at MWC 2014

    Linux on ARMCavium talks about and shows their latest enterprise, data center, wired and wireless networking OCTEON and OCTEON Fusion SoCs based on ARMv8 64bit and MIPS, making customized optimized core designs for each in use for cloud servers and base stations among other. CAVIUM claims that their ARMv8 64bit enterprise/server design, due to be released later this year, provides more performance at lower power consumption than Intel´s x86.

  • CAVIUM 48-core 64bit ARMv8 and 32-core MIPS for Servers and Base Stations

  • Applied Micro X-Gene X-C1 ARMv8 Server Development Board is Now Available for Pre-order

    Linux on ARMApplied Micro X-Gene is the very first processor to use ARM 64-bit architecture (ARMv8), not Cortex A53 or Cortex A57, but a custom implementation, and last year we’ve seen the company’s ARMv8 development board running 4 Linux virtual machines via KVM. The platform, called X-Gene X-C1, can now be pre-ordered to develop private cloud, public cloud, and enterprise applications.

  • Dell ARMs itself with new proof-of-concept 64-bit 'microserver'

    Linux on ARMDell offers prototype ARM-based 64-bit server for private testing to 'select customers,' but actual data center use is still a long way off - During the last two years, Dell's been pushing its nose all the more into the low-power 64-bit ARM server tent -- but only by slow inches, much like the rest of the industry.

  • ARM Unveils System Base Architecture Specification to Standardize ARM based Servers

    Linux on ARM64-bit ARM based servers should hit the market later this year or earlier in 2015 with SoCs such as Applied Micro X-Gene or AMD Opteron A1100. ARM still has the lead in terms of efficiency with a lower dollar per watt ratio, but Intel is closing in with their new Avoton server-on-chips. However, there’s one aspect where Intel is clearly in the lead: standardization and compatibility.

  • ARM finally defines a platform as it sets its sights on the server room

    Linux on ARMIn an attempt to strengthen the entry of ARM processors into the server market, British chip designer ARM has put together the Server Base System Architecture (SBSA), a definition of a standard platform for ARM-based servers. This move should reduce the abundant variation and complexity that has hitherto been a feature of ARM systems. SBSA was assembled by ARM along with its partners, including HP, Dell, AMD, Citrix, and Microsoft.
