AppliedMicro Announces General Availability of Its X-Gene System Development Kit for ARM 64-Bit Platforms
SUNNYVALE, CA, Oct 30, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), also known as
AppliedMicro, will showcase its X-Gene System Development Kit at ARM
TechCon, taking place Oct. 29-31, 2013, at the Santa Clara Convention
Center in Santa Clara, Calif. The platform provides enterprises the
full server system solution needed to serve evolving data center
Building on AppliedMicro's pioneering efforts in the development of
X-Gene(TM), the world's first enterprise-grade 64-bit Server on a
Chip(TM) silicon, the X-Gene Development Kit includes a hardware
reference system and software development kit featuring production
quality BIOS, compiler, LAMP stack, virtualization and cloud
applications such as open source search and publishing engines.
"X-Gene is the defacto development platform for ARM 64-bit
applications for cloud servers, hyperscale data centers, big data
systems and scale-out storage systems," said Paramesh Gopi, President
and CEO, AppliedMicro. "Thanks to our early commitment to the ARMv8
architecture, our ecosystem partnerships have made software on X-Gene
more mature and robust during the past 2 years."
The X-Gene Development Kit features integrated 10 Gb Ethernet, high
performance DDR3, SATA 2/3, PCIe Gen 3 and USB 3, and is fully
supported by leading enterprise software vendors including Canonical,
Red Hat, Oracle, Citrix and KVM.
"Canonical and AppliedMicro are set to deliver the industry's first
commercially viable ARMv8, enterprise class server hardware running
Ubuntu. Ubuntu Server 13.10 is available today for AppliedMicro's
pilot customers. AppliedMicro is also a member of our Ubuntu
Certification program with our fully supported Ubuntu Server 14.04
LTS release scheduled for April 2014," said Christian Robottom Reis,
Canonical VP Hyperscale. "We have been working with AppliedMicro to
ensure Ubuntu runs efficiently on the X-Gene Development Kit."
"Red Hat and Applied Micro have collaborated on the development of
X-Gene and enabling support for the X-Gene Development Kit in
Fedora," said Jon Masters, chief ARM architect at Red Hat. "Having a
community-supported release of Fedora for the X-Gene SoC family is an
important first step towards creation of a 64-bit ARM ecosystem."
Orders for the X-Gene Development Kit can be placed at AppliedMicro's
demonstration kiosk at ARM TechCon and subsequently at www.apm.com.
