Stocks in this article: CAVM

LONDON and TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Computex -- Canonical, the commercial organisation behind Ubuntu and the leading provider of support services for Ubuntu deployments in the enterprise today announced expanded support for the ThunderX SoC family from Cavium, Inc., (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, cloud, wired and wireless networking. With this announcement Canonical builds on the strategic partnership that initially delivered Ubuntu 13.10 support on ThunderX in 2013.

Canonical will continue to provide development and support for the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS release on ThunderX, as announced in April.  Ubuntu is the first commercial-grade platform for ARM64 computing.  Ubuntu 14.04 LTS includes Juju and MAAS to easily design, deploy and scale services faster than any other platform available today, on cloud or bare metal. Juju meets the DevOps imperative for agility, continuous deployment and integration, and MAAS provides scalable bare-metal deployment.  With optimized integration for the ThunderX SoC Family, Ubuntu delivers the requirements of a true Hyperscale Data Center environment. 

We believe the ThunderX SoC family will deliver an optimal combination of compute, storage, networking and security integration for the scale out cloud and cloud specific workloads.  Canonical has demonstrated industry leadership in the cloud market and is the most widely used OpenStack distribution with its investment in OpenStack development and deployment.  With today's announcement Canonical will be partnering with Cavium to optimize OpenStack for the ThunderX SoC family. This will include Cavium's participation in Canonical's OpenStack Interoperability Lab (OIL).  The Lab runs over 3,000 OpenStack tests each week, using different combinations of Ubuntu, OpenStack and third party technologies, to provide customer assurance of interoperability and performance with their preferred solutions in private OpenStack environments.
