Full applications like web frontends LAMP and Memcached can be supported and scaled across a massive number of virtual machines.  Data center and cloud management applications can be ported to setup cloud workloads with multiple application tiers with dynamic provisioning and on-the-fly upgrade ability.

The Project Thunder SDK provides programmers access to an array of cache coherent 64-bit ARMv8 CPU cores, Interrupt Controller, Network connectively, Mass storage interface, Timers, SMMU and console. All device drivers and utilities required for the Project Thunder platform components are included. The SDK also includes a cross development platform enabling programmers to write their own applications or build third party packages for Project Thunder.
