Linux ARM and Calxeda

  • Linux on ARMUpdated - ARM server chip designer Calxeda has shut down as one of its executives told The Register: "We simply ran out of money."

  • Linux on ARMFedora has been supporting ARM architecture for a while now, but it was only as a secondary architecture without official support. With the recent Fedora 20 release, nicknamed “Heisenbug”, the ARM architecture, more exactly ARMv7 hard float and greater, is promoted to a primary architecture meaning ARMv7 will have the same status as x86 and x86_64 architectures with packages officially build and supported by the Fedora community.

  • Linux on ARMCalxeda unveiled its new ECX-2000 Server-on-a-Chip (SoC) at ARM Techcon 2013. Calxeda new chipset features 4 cortex A15 cores, support up to 16GB RAM, and thanks to the move from Cortex A9 to Cortex A15 supports hardware virtualization. I’ve stumbled across two new servers powered by ECX-2000: Boston Viridis 2.0 and AAEON-CRS-200S-2R. Let’s have a look

  • Linux on ARMWhen it comes to the server industry, ARM Holdings doesn't seem to abide by dry logic much when making its forecasts, though some might say optimism is not a sin, so it's all fine. The following is an outline of its current stance and expectations.

  • Linux on ARMIn this video from the HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference 2013, David Power from Boston LTD describes the company's innovative ARM-based solutions for HPC.

  • Linux on ARMThe Fedora ARM team is pleased to announce the final release of Fedora 19 for the 32-bit ARM Architecture. We are providing both pre-installed disk media images (suitable for use with devices that boot from removable media, such as an SD Card), as well as installer images (suitable for use with a wide variety of devices, including ARM server systems powered by the Calxeda EnergyCore ECX1000 "highbank" processor):

  • Linux on ARMIn the modern server space, Intel's x86 has dominated for at least the last decade. It's an area where ARM-based servers could soon take a slice of that pie.

  • Linux on ARMARM started to get involved in servers in 2011 with the announcements of Calxeda Energy Core, Marvell, and Applied Micro X-Gene Servers-on-a-Chip, and in 2012, products made by companies such as HP and Mitac started to appears. We’ve got to see some more ARM based servers this year thanks to Charbax, who filmed some Aaeon and Foxconn servers powered by Calxeda EnergyCore quad core ARM Cortex A9 SoC at Computex 2013.

  • Linux on ARMIf I didn't have to man El Reg's systems desk for a paycheck and had a little venture capital to blow, I might start a company called Leg Systems, headquartered on the Isle of Man– not because of its tax haven status (which is eroding), but because my company would sell ARM-based systems and say that we wouldn't charge an arm and a leg for them.

  • Linux on ARMAMD, AppliedMicro, Calxeda, Canonical, Cavium, Facebook, HP, Marvell and Red Hat join existing Linaro members ARM, HiSilicon, Samsung and ST-Ericsson to form new group focused on accelerating Linux development for ARM servers

  • Linux on ARMAfter delivering some AMD Vishera multi-core scaling benchmarks for reference on Saturday, here's some similar tests conducted from a Calxeda ECX-1000 quad-core ARM server node.
     

  • Linux on ARMLast week I began delivering benchmarks of the low-power yet massively scalable Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Server and followed the initial tests with some ARM compiler benchmarks and other benchmarks from this 5-Watt Linux Server.

  • Linux on ARMPenguin Computing launched an ARM-based server for scale-out architectures, using Calxeda's System-on-Chip (SoC) server nodes.
     

  • Linux on ARMEarlier this month I was down in Texas visiting the Calxeda office where for the past four years they have been busy trying to revolutionize the server market through ultra-low power ARM-based servers. This morning one of their partners, Boston Limited, is formally launching their energy-efficient "Viridis" server built around Calxeda's EnergyCore ECX-1000 hardware. In this article are the first of some public Calxeda ARM benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux while more results will be out in the coming days.

  • Linux on ARMBack in June there were Calxeda's ARM Highbank performance claims of delivering 15x performance-per-Watt superior performance to Intel's Xeon x86 processor. At long last, independent benchmarks of a quad-core Calxeda Highbank board are beginning to surface.

  • Linux on ARMCalxeda is cranking up the burgeoning competition between Intel and ARM Holdings with a demonstration this week of an ARM-based server running a Linux operating system. Calxeda, which last fall announced a partnership with Hewlett-Packard to develop very low-power systems running on ARM-based processors, on May 7 showed off the prototype server powered by its EnergyCard compute blades at the Ubuntu Developer and Cloud Summit in Oakland, Calif.

  • Linux on ARMCalxeda has shown off a low-power ARM-based server running Ubuntu 12.04, a significant move that ratchets up competition in the chip industry. The Texas-based server designer demonstrated the technology at the Ubuntu Developer and Cloud Summit in Oakland, California on Monday.
