AppliedMicro Showcases Readiness Of Rapidly Expanding ARM 64-bit Ecosystem At ARM TechCon

ARM TechCon2012- Pioneering the use of the ARM 64-bit architecture to deliver unprecedented server innovation, AppliedMicro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ:AMCC) will today for the first time demonstrate several open source software applications running on its X-Gene™ Server on a Chip™ platform, the world’s first implementation of the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture.

In a session co-hosted by ARM and AppliedMicro at ARM TechCon™ 2012, AppliedMicro plans to demonstrate advanced web search capabilities and the ability to handle big data workloads in an Apache™ Hadoop™ software environment. The company will showcase ARM 64-bit server software ecosystem readiness with American Megatrends, Phoenix, Red Hat, and several other open source software components. The session will include presentations from operating system developer, Red Hat; virtualization solution provider, Citrix; enterprise Hadoop software and solutions provider, Cloudera; Java platform provider, Oracle; and an enterprise cloud computing technologist from Morgan Stanley. The session will take place from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the Hands-on Lab located in the main exhibit hall of the Santa Clara Convention Center.

“Our activities today highlight the significant progress that is being made in building out the ARM 64-bit ecosystem, a process that is on track to perfectly intersect with the availability of our X-Gene silicon,” said Dr. Paramesh Gopi, president and CEO of AppliedMicro. “We see strong pull from data center and enterprise administrators who require lower power, higher densities and lower total-cost-of-ownership. Together with ARM and the open source software community, AppliedMicro is revolutionizing server design, and showing what is possible with a purpose-built server platform.”

The AppliedMicroX-Gene Server on a Chip platform offers unparalleled integration, featuring multi-core ARMv8-compliant 64-bit processors, a high performance memory subsystem, cloud server I/O with integrated Ethernet NIC, and other communications interfaces – all on a single chip. Capable of running a full LAMP software stack and other cloud software applications, the X-Gene platform can be implemented in data centers to dramatically drive down total cost of ownership (TCO).

In a separate announcement last week, AppliedMicro, ARM and Red Hat announced that Red Hat is actively engaged in developing support within the Fedora community for the new 64-bit ARMv8 architecture, also known as AArch64, and has Fedora Linux running on AppliedMicro hardware in its labs. Red Hat aims to have software support at the time of the X-Gene silicon availability.
