  • 64-bit ARM Servers Partner Network Launched by Red Hat

    In the last week of July Red Hat (RHT) announced a new Partner Early Access Program (PEAP) to help promote RHT’s open source software in 64-bit ARMv8-A servers and other ARM devices.

    To power up next generation data centres among different applications Red Hat is eager to stake its claim to a share of emerging 64-bit ARM platforms. The 32-bit ARM processors have been around for a long time 64-bit ARM platforms are built to deploy more advanced applications.

    The VP and GM, Platform Business Unit at Red, Jim Totton said, “We are eager to deploy 64-bit ARM solutions that are based upon Red Hat technologies with a tighter collaboration with leading innovators in the ARM ecosystem.”

    Open source is becoming stronger and stronger day by day. The community of developers are the base of Linux making changes to the core and developing things. 64 bit ARM server project will indeed a good approach because it is built to handle the big application of data centers to deliver efficiency and performance.

      32 bit ARM servers are really good as well, the features and functionality of the server handle any applications of the data center and deploy efficient results.

        In addition, AMD also unveiled 64-bit marketís first ARM development kit. The development kit is designed for Opteron A1100 which available from AMD for $2999 shocking price.



        Btw, this is the first development kit dedicated to the 64-bit ARM chips servers.

        A development kit intended primarily for software vendors (available for $2999 or 2,240 Euros) by all means this motherboard will beyond the reach of the average users. However, itís relatively affordable for people who are in search for a hardware development kit.

        This microATX motherboard is equipped with an Opteron A1100 with 4 cores ARM Cortex-A57, supported by 16GB of DDR3 ECC RAM and possible to go up to 128GB.

        CPU frequency has not been specified, but should be in the range of 2GHz. Accelerators for encryption and data compression are present, as the hardware virtualization support.

        A complete software package

        The connector includes 2 PCI Express ports and 8 Serial ATA connectors, 3 for the network, two for Ethernet ports to 10 GB/s are in the game.

        For software side, AMD offers environmental boot UEFI OS and Linux Fedora. A rather clever choice, Fedora often foreshadowing of what will eventually be the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system. A LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) is present. Finally, ARM 64-bit compatible versions of Java 7 and Java 8 are planned.
