Red Hat: ARM servers will come when people crank out chips like AMD's 64-bit Seattle

Linux on ARMLinuxCon 2014 - It's practically a given that the ARM processor architecture – so beloved by makers of small devices everywhere – will graduate to servers soon. But before ARM servers can ship in any significant volume, a standardized hardware platform that specifically targets the data center is a must.

Lots Of New ARM Hardware To Be Supported By Linux 3.17

Linux on ARMSeveral new ARM devices will be supported by the in-development Linux 3.17 kernel while some less-than-optimally-supported ARM hardware is also getting stripped from the mainline kernel tree. Olof Johansson emailed in the large batch of ARM changes today for the Linux 3.17 merge window. Some highlights for the pull request consisting of around 750 patches include:

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.

AMD Announces the Availability of 64-bit ARM Opteron Developer Kits

Linux on ARMAMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced the immediate availability of the AMD Opteron™ A1100-Series developer kit, which features AMD’s first 64-bit ARM®-based processor, codenamed “Seattle.” AMD is the first company to provide a standard ARM Cortex®-A57- based server platform for software developers and integrators.

Raspberry Pi B+ ARM Debian Benchmarks

Linux on ARMAvailable from OpenBenchmarking.org are some tests of the brand new Raspberry Pi B+ ARM system. The Raspberry Pi B+ was announced last week as the last revision to the original RPi. The B+ board has more GPIO pins, a total of four USB 2.0 ports, a micro SD port, improved audio, and form factor improvements. However, the Raspberry Pi B+ is still using the Broadcom BCM2835 and there's still just 512MB of system memory.
