  • Linux on ARMThe Mobile Virtual Platform (MVP) hypervisor that VMware sells for smartphones and fondleslabs running the Android variant of Linux on ARM RISC processors is getting some competition. Intrepid techies are working away on two different implementations of the open source Xen hypervisor for ARM chips, and another group is putting together a KVM hypervisor port as well.

  • Linux on ARMCitrix has brought the Xen hypervsior to the ARM Cortex A15, which uses the ARMv7 virtualization extensions.

  • Linux on ARMSteve Jobs was such a captivating promoter of inventions that his products reshaped our thinking, defining or redefining products we once thought we fully understood. At his best, Jobs was almost too good. If Picasso were God all fish would be flounders. But the computer industry, like nature, fosters diversity. Apple's smart clients, the iPhone and iPad, are iconic devices built around systems-on-a-chip (SoCs), but they are not the only important applications of this technology. Servers, too, can be made from compact, efficient, and inexpensive SoCs. And they will prove to be exceedingly disruptive.

  • Linux on ARMEven as x86 chipmakers like Intel Corp. (INTC) dream of getting a piece of lucrative smartphone and tablet chip market dominated by ARM Holdings plc (LON:ARM) licensees, ARM is ready to take the fight to Intel.  Already preparing to invade the laptop space, courtesy of Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT) incoming support with Windows 8, ARM has just taken a major step towards establishing a beachhead on Intel's most fertile and fast growing empire -- the server market.

  • Linux on ARMDemonstration runs 64-bit Linux on newest ISA-based processor architecture to provide pre-silicon evaluation benchmarks for early customer engagements - SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, or AppliedMicro, today demonstrated core functionality of the world's first 64-bit ARM processor on an FPGA platform during ARM TechCon 2011.

  • Linux on ARMUbuntu 11.10 ("Oneiric Ocelot") was released, featuring makeovers for its Unity desktop and Ubuntu Software Center, plus a switch to the Thunderbird email client and a new backup tool called Deja Dup. On the server side, Ubuntu 11.10 adds ARM support, as well as a new "Juju" cloud management framework, and the integration of OpenStack within Ubuntu Cloud Infrastructure.

  • Linux on ARMLINUX VENDOR Canonical has said that Ubuntu 11.10 will be the first to support both x86 and ARM architectures. - Canonical's popular Ubuntu Linux distribution will get its second update of 2011 this month for both desktop and server editions. However it is the server edition that Canonical has made the biggest changes to by supporting ARM processors.

  • Linux on ARMIn today's data center, millions of instructions per second (MIPS) and gigabyte per second (GBPS) throughput are well and good, but being green (having a low power consumption) is becoming just as important. That's why Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, is betting that in the long run, ARM processors will play an important role in tomorrow's servers and datacenters.

  • Linux on ARMArch Linux ARM is an operating system, a distribution of Linux for ARM computers. We are aimed at ARMv5 platforms like plug computers, OXNAS-based ARMv6 Pogoplugs, Cortex-A8 platforms such as the BeagleBoard, and Cortex-A9 and Tegra platforms like the PandaBoard and Trim Slice. However, it can run on any device that supports ARMv5te or Cortex-A instruction sets.

  • Linux on ARMWe already know that Ubuntu Server developers are heavily invested in the cloud, a focus that continues during the current development cycle.  But that’s not all to expect next fall: Ubuntu Server will also add support for ARM architectures.  Here’s a look at exactly what to expect, and what it means for the channel.

  • Linux on ARMJust like Microsoft with Windows 8, Canonical is pushing forward with ensuring ARM-compatibility for future versions of Ubuntu. In order to do that it needs a proper build environment and hardware to allow contributors to submit and build the 20,000+ packages that make up the Linux distribution.

  • Linux on ARMZT Systems announced what it says is the first commercially available ARM-based development platform for the server market. The Ubuntu Linux-based R1801e 1U rackmount server employs SSD (solid state disk) storage and eight ARM Cortex-A9-based computer-on-modules (COMs), providing 16 600MHz cores while using less than 80 Watts, the company says.
