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.

Freescale's i.MX6 SoC Smacks The Old Intel Atom Z530

Linux on ARMFor the past few weeks I've had the pleasure of playing with CompuLab's Utilite Computer. The Utilite is a miniature ARM desktop computer powered by Freescale's i.MX6 SoC and is running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. This is a speedy little Linux system that for some workloads can blow past Intel's original Atom Z530 "Poulsbo" SoC system.
