Packet just announced an interesting partnership with ARM to launch Works on ARM. Basically, the partnership is based around expanding support for Armv8 processors in the data center.
ARM-based servers in the data center are a lot like free beer, it always seems like you have to wait until tomorrow. Yet, unlike that mythical pint of the latter, we might be getting closer to the day when the former is a common reality. The first of many steps to make that happen is hardware. We’ve seen a few vendors making serious strides in the space. At the end of 2016, Qualcomm showed off their Centriq 2400-series SoC, with 48 cores on a single socket server. Now AppliedMicro is ready to sample their X-Gene 3 ARM server SOC.
Gestalt News has a fresh batch of mobility news for you. In this iteration:
– Nokia bets big on IoT networking
– Qualcomm releases 802.11ax chipsets
– A look at client-side networking
Plus more great reads from the community!
Qualcomm is getting ready to bring two 802.11ax SoCs to market. The IPQ8074 SoC is designed for access points and routers, with a peak theoretical throughput of 4.8Gbps across eight 5GHz streams and four 2.4GHz streams. They’ve also got a client side SoC capable of 1.775Gbps across two streams. While not the first to announced a router SoC for 801.11ax, they’re the first I’ve seen presenting a client side option.
