Designing IP and system architectures for focused markets such as server, automotive, and networking is a key priority for Arm. The launch of Arm Neoverse purpose-built IP underscores the continued investment Arm and the ecosystem are making to deliver more ubiquitous compute from the cloud to the edge. Arm’s vision is to deliver world-class performance and efficiency for the next generation of distributed cloud to edge infrastructure.
In addition to the IP innovation, developers play critical roles in helping to realize the vision above. In this blog, I will outline the key steps Arm is taking toward building a productive and strong Arm Infrastructure Developer Community (AIDC).
Most developers are time-strapped and expect information to be easily accessible. AIDC was developed with the intent to reach out to technical audiences and provide them with relevant information. Currently AIDC contains developer resources (software and hardware), ecosystem partner page, event information, blogs and news.
Our focus for FY2019 is to enhance developer resources so community members can have access to more technical information containing documentation, tutorials and deep dives. We will also be publishing blogs on regular basis to share our progress and latest infrastructure related news.
We'd like to invite our developers to be part of this rewarding journey, please come and visit us at AIDC.
Current cloud-based development platforms which support Arm include: AWS A1, Packet, Linaro and VExxhost. These options provide multiple configurations of Arm instances, which enable developers to develop, deploy and drive acceleration of the Arm software ecosystem. In the case of AWS A1, Arm is working on enabling additional workloads in order to support a wide range of end user use cases.
When it comes to development needs, one size does not fit all. Arm is also working closely with partners to provide suitable options for on-premises development needs. The goal is to have a desktop system that will address the form factor, expandability and software compatibility requirements. The system should be able to support selected use cases at an affordable price. Please stay tuned for our update.
The adaption rate of public cloud services among enterprise customers have been growing rapidly. This is vital for businesses to stay competitive by introducing bimodal IT strategies. The term “cloud native” was first introduced in 2010. The core concepts of cloud native emphasize on microservice-oriented, container based and dynamically orchestrated cloud-based solutions.
Arm joined Could Native Computing Foundation in February 2019 to further our commitment on supporting cloud native workloads. In joining CNCF, Arm plans to build on the significant work from the community to ensure that Kubernetes and other CNCF-hosted projects run well on Arm-based platforms.
We are excited of the endeavor ahead as we continue to evolve the entire Arm portfolio and building our developer community. Visit AIDC and get the latest updates.
