AppliedMicro And Canonical To Present The World's First Production Software Deployment On ARM 64-bit Servers

TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (Nasdaq:AMCC) and Canonical will demonstrate Icehouse, the latest OpenStack release using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS in a KVM virtualized environment on an X-Gene™ -based server rack, using Juju, MAAS and charms to orchestrate applications, databases and services. Onboard applications will include Elasticsearch, SugarCRM, Kibana, Logstash, Hadoop and MediaWiki. The demonstration is a significant proof point that leading scale-out cloud services are available on 64-bit ARM ® architecture.

The demonstration builds on AppliedMicro's pioneering efforts in the development of ARM 64-bit server technology and comes on the heels of the company's inclusion in Canonical's Ubuntu OpenStack Interoperability Lab ( OIL). OIL makes it easier for ecosystem partners like AppliedMicro to assure the compatibility of the company's category-defining X-Gene Server on a Chip TM solution with the world's leading open cloud platform.

"We are pleased to offer the first ARM 64-bit Server-on-a-Chip production silicon with full certification for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, including all the relevant server workloads and tools to allow commercial hyperscale deployments on X-Gene," said Gaurav Singh, vice president, AppliedMicro. "The X-Gene plus Ubuntu offering means enterprises can now capture substantial TCO savings for their scale-out data centers."

"Ubuntu is the primary platform for the cloud – public, private or hybrid. Working with Applied Micro, we have delivered to the ARM ecosystem the ability to orchestrate server workloads at scale. X-Gene and Ubuntu provide a perfect platform for companies considering hyperscale deployments: outstanding performance, disruptive economics and fully automated management," said Christian Reis, VP Hyperscale at Canonical.

In addition to a joint presentation from AppliedMicro and Canonical, AppliedMicro will discuss the product roadmap for the disruptive X-Gene SoC Cloud Server TM solution. This includes production of X-Gene and updates on X-Gene 2.

Following the formal presentation, several Taiwan-based ODMs will showcase systems built on X-Gene during an expo session.
