    ARMH assualt on Intel next Bread and butter product XEON ak Server Chips:UNIVA AUTOMATES ARM INFRASTRUCTURE FOR HADOOP

    UNIVA AUTOMATES ARM INFRASTRUCTURE FOR HADOOP
    Beta version of Grid Engine for ARM available for HPC, analytics and cloud deployments
    14 February 2013 by Yevgeniy Sverdlik - DatacenterDynamics
    Univa, provider of workload-management software for data centers, has rolled out a version of its platform that supports IT infrastructure built on ARM processors.

    Gary Tyreman, Univa CEO, said the company viewed ARM chips as the next “Lego block” in the building of next-generation data centers, similar to the addition of accelerators and graphics processing units (GPUs) to make modern applications perform better. There will be a mix of processor architectures in data centers in the near future, which will include ARM servers running some applications and x86 servers running others.

    Univa released the beta version of its Grid Engine software for ARM early on so customers can start testing it, Tyreman said.

    There are multiple applications that are core for Univa’s technology, including serial and parallel ones, such as Hadoop. Grid Engine can schedule serial jobs and complex parallel ones on a single shared infrastructure.

    Hadoop and high-performance-computing applications are Univa’s primary targets. Automation of data center resources for cloud infrastructure is another obvious use.

    Adoption of ARM chips for servers is going to accelerate because of the typical modern data center concerns: space, power and cooling resources. So-called “wimpy-core” chips address all three, Tyreman says.

    ARM Holdings is a UK company that licenses its processor designs to chip makers. Its processors are currently dominating the mobile-device market, while also picking up momentum in the server space.

    Univa started support for wimpy-core processors with ARM, as opposed to Intel’s rival product Atom, because, in Tyreman’s view, the former has greater momentum in the server space than the latter does. Grid Engine does not support Atom at this time, but “we will,” he said.

    ARM’s momentum is about to increase further because first server chips using the 64-bit version of the architecture are already on the market, and more are expected to become available next year.

    Applied MIcro announced availability of its 64-bit ARM server processor called X-Gene in January and said it expected multiple vendors to ship servers with the chips inside by the end of the year. Calxeda, Applied Micro’s rival in the ARMs race, plans to release its 64-bit product in 2014.

    Univa uses servers based on Calxeda’s 32-bit ARM chips to develop Grid Engine.

    • ARM pounded press releases about RT, too. lolololololololol

    • What can you say about a company that puts out press release after press release about what it's going to do? All the success In smartphones and tablets ARM has experience in the past five has been from Apple. Either directly as in the case of iPhone and iPad sales or indirectly as in the case of most Android phones.

      Look at ARM's failures. Nobody, not even Samsung can make an iPad replacement that comes close in sales to the iPad. All the rival operating systems from HP/Blackberry/ and even Microsoft with ARM have been failures. Unless Apple wants to get into the rack mounted server world you are reading about the next big ARM failure.

      Intel eats competitors like ARM for breakfast in the server world. As has been said many times before this is at best 10% of the entire server market ARM can ever hope to go after. This press release is written for uninformed ARMH investors who need to buy into the fairy tail of why ARMH needs a P/E over 70 when the writing on the wall says differently.

        It's not an ARM press release....ARM in phones had nothing to do with the iPhone as it was in most phones before it was released. It was Nokia who started the ball rolling for ARM in phones.

        ARM is so far down the design cycle that it little or no influence on products such as tablets or servers. It's the SoC designers and the OEMs that drive these things.
