Why ARM Servers, And Why Now? - - It 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...

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...

Linux 3.14 kernel revision beefs up ARM, VM support

Linux on ARMThe latest Linux kernel's revision number may be 3.14, but don't expect any pi jokes in the release notes. Do, however, look past the matter-of-fact release announcement on the Linux kernel development mailing list for some intriguing improvements in ways that may have implications for cutting-edge processors and for cloud/VM environments.

Porting to 64-bit ARM

Linux on ARMWhy 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 registers and greater accuracy of 64-bit data processing, for still others the attraction of a larger register set. Either way, the 64-bit train is gathering speed and if you don't get on board it may leave you behind!

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.

Linux group could hasten 64-bit Android for ARM mobile devices

Linux on ARMLinaro, the open-source development consortium for Linux on ARM architecture, is working on software, tools and drivers that could hasten the release of 64-bit Android. The move is significant because, apart from Apple’s iPhone 5s, no 64-bit smartphones have been announced, a situation that analysts partly attribute to the lack of 64-bit Android for ARM processors, which are the most widely used in handsets and tablets.
