I have heard the term ServerReady thrown around quite freely.
Can someone please explain what this means and how Arm is involved?
In short, the Arm ServerReady compliance program provides a solution for servers that “just works”, allowing partners to deploy Arm servers with confidence.
The program is based on industry standards and the Server Base System Architecture (SBSA ) and Server Base Boot Requirement (SBBR ) specifications, alongside Arm’s Server Architectural Compliance Suite (ACS ).
Arm ServerReady ensures that Arm-based servers work "out-of-the-box", offering seamless interoperability with generic, off-the-shelf operating systems, hypervisors, and software.
These specifications are defined in the Server Advisory Committee (ServerAC). ServerAC is an industry-wide consortium that includes Arm and its silicon partners, BIOS vendors, OEM/ODMs, IHVs, OSVs and cloud service providers. Arm develops the ACS and hosts it as an open source project. For more information, please see https://developer.arm.com/architectures/platform-design/server-systems. (Visit SBSA/SBBR forum post )
Hope this helps!
I'm really interested in that too. I hear that quite a lot, and would love to know more about SBBR, ServerReady, UEFI, and the difference with U-Boot.I'm all ears!Thanks in advance.
