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.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
