Arm announced the collaborative development and immediate availability of a platform standard for Armv8-A based (64-bit) servers, known as the Arm 'Server Base System Architecture' specification. In a release, the Company noted that this effort included input and support from software companies such as Canonical,
"As Arm's data center ecosystem continues its rapid growth, this milestone enables partners to focus on their innovation while building on standards that help simplify their development and accelerate their time-to-market," said
"We are extremely pleased to see Arm take these steps, which we believe are very much in line with the principles of the
"Adopting industry standards and defining base platforms are essential for creating a healthy Arm-based 64-bit server ecosystem," said
"With X-Gene as the first product in the industry to be SBSA compliant, AppliedMicro is in full support of the Arm server standardization efforts," said
"Arm-based servers have the potential to transform the datacenter ecosystem back into a dynamic, innovative market," said
"Open and standards-based technologies have been a cornerstone of Dell's philosophy for 30 years," said
"HP has supported Arm's standardization effort since its inception, recognizing the benefits of an extensible platform with value-added features," said
"The Arm architecture and business model is unique in enabling rapid innovation from multiple Arm licensees. Many companies are now building innovative and differentiated solutions for the next generation low-power data center," said
"Standardization is essential to the successful adoption and deployment of modern computer architectures, such as Armv8. At
"SUSE has worked on and supported development around Arm processors for several years, and we anticipate Arm processor adoption in cloud, big data and high-performance computing applications," said Ralf Flaxa, vice president of engineering, SUSE. "SUSE welcomes the SBSA standardization efforts and is proud to contribute to the server platform standard's development. As the market emerges, this standard will become a key factor determining success in the enterprise ecosystem, and we look forward to working with platforms that implement it."
"As an early innovator of unique server-grade KeyStone SoCs that combine digital signal processors, Arm Cortex processors, packet processing, security acceleration and Ethernet switching, TI applauds the Arm ecosystem for its collaboration on delivering the SBSA specification," said
