  • Linux on ARMCavium talks about and shows their latest enterprise, data center, wired and wireless networking OCTEON and OCTEON Fusion SoCs based on ARMv8 64bit and MIPS, making customized optimized core designs for each in use for cloud servers and base stations among other. CAVIUM claims that their 48-core ARMv8 64bit enterprise/server design, due to be released later this year, provides more performance at lower power consumption than Intel´s x86.

  • Linux on ARMRaspberry Pi super-computing clusters have been attempted before, but usually they don't turn out as nice as this new one that's comprised of 40 Raspberry Pi boards inside of an acrylic chassis.

  • Linux on ARMApplied Micro X-Gene is the very first processor to use ARM 64-bit architecture (ARMv8), not Cortex A53 or Cortex A57, but a custom implementation, and last year we’ve seen the company’s ARMv8 development board running 4 Linux virtual machines via KVM. The platform, called X-Gene X-C1, can now be pre-ordered to develop private cloud, public cloud, and enterprise applications.

  • Linux on ARMDell offers prototype ARM-based 64-bit server for private testing to 'select customers,' but actual data center use is still a long way off - During the last two years, Dell's been pushing its nose all the more into the low-power 64-bit ARM server tent -- but only by slow inches, much like the rest of the industry.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Linux on ARMAround 15 months ago, AMD announced that it would be building 64-bit ARM based SoCs for servers in 2014. Less than a month into 2014, AMD made good on its promise and officially announced the Opteron A1100: a 64-bit ARM Cortex A57 based SoC.

  • Linux on ARMIf you want a quad core development board for less than $100, you only have two choices right now: Radxa Rock powered by Rockchip RK3188, and Hardkernel ODROID-U3 powered by Samsung Exynos 4412 prime.

  • Linux on ARMThe Linaro-hosted "Enterprise Group" (LEG) is dedicated to accelerate Linux ARM server ecosystem development and extends the list of Linaro members beyond ARM silicon vendors to Server OEM's and commercial Linux providers.

  • Linux on ARMShowing off the latest Applied Micro 64bit X-Gene ARM Server Development Board https://myxgene.apm.com/ (which Rob Savoye of Linaro eagerly wants to start playing with), a Dell's 64bit ARM Server solution running Fedora 19 advancing quite a bit with advancing usability, working on a proof of concept for early 2014 for Dell's key cloud server customers before going into mass production (Dell already did some 32bit ARM Server tests in Europe with some customers), some things like Oracle JDK still has to fully come over (needs some tuning) to the platform.

  • Linux on ARMAMD in 2014 will be delivering a 64bit ARM processor for servers. The ARM Architecture and Ecosystem enables servers to achieve greater performance per watt and greater performance per dollar. The code name for the product is Seattle. AMD Seattle is expected to reach mass market cloud servers in the second half of 2014.

  • 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 ARMUbuntu Founder, Mark Shuttleworth, talks about why he started Ubuntu, how it runs on 30 different ARM Powered Smartphones, on all the ARM Servers, on upcoming ARM Powered Laptops also.

  • Linux on ARMIt’s not just Google that’s concerned about the possible NSA-built backdoors into computer hardware, but also Facebook. It seems that the company is already making sure that its code would be compatible with such a move if it makes the switch from Intel to ARM.

  • Linux on ARMLantronix announced an IPv6 certified version of its tiny, RJ45-sized embedded Linux networking server called the XPort Pro Lx6 aimed at IoT applications.

  • Linux on ARMAdvanced Micro Devices has steadily been laying off the pressure on the high-end x86 processor market, seemingly leaving it all to Intel, but now it's confirmed that it was all part of a plan. A plan involving the ARM architecture that is.

  • Linux on ARMWhile the traditional server market suffers a sales slump, the niche market for ARM-based servers is hoping to catch fire. The latest example: Boston Ltd. has unveiled the Viridis 2.0 Microserver -- a potential alternative to HP Moonshot and Dell Project Copper ARM servers. It's certified to run Ubuntu 13.10 and OpenStack Havana, and powered by ARM Cortexc A15 quad-core processor. So what's the channel partner angle?

  • 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 ARMBoston Limited has announced a new server based on ARM processors and certified to run Ubuntu Linux 13.10, a move that could further stir up growing interest in ARM servers.

  • Linux on ARMA week after celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Fedora Project released the Fedora 20 ("Heisenbug") beta on Nov. 12. Thanks to a few stubborn Heisenbugs, the release was several weeks late, but that is but a blip compared to some of Fedora's more historic delays.
