Porting to 64-bit ARM - Why 64-bit? It seems that is a question with many answers! For some, it will be the need to address more than 2GB or 4GB of memory, for others the need for wider...

It Begins: AMD Announces Its First ARM Based Server SoC,... - Around 15 months ago, AMD announced that it would be building 64-bit ARM based SoCs for servers in 2014. Less than a month into 2014, AMD made good on its promise and...

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.

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 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.
