Long wait for ARM servers
Posted on 21-Aug-2014 19:35 by Bill Bennett | Tags Filed under: Articles


Rick Merritt at EE Times reports ARM-based servers are coming, but it is taking longer than expected.

He writes:

“There will definitely be [ARM] server products shipping this year and a reasonable number next year, but it won’t really begin to ramp until 2016,” Forrest Norrod, general manager of Dell Inc.’s server group, told EE Times.

AEM is struggling to get server software for its processors Intel chips remain a priority for developers. Merritt reports Microsoft has still not committed to an ARM version of Windows Server.

It would be good to see ARM chips in the data centre. The company makes reduced instruction set (Risc) processors which use fewer transistors than conventional chip designs. This means lower power-requirements a huge plus for data centres.
