In October, Arm announced Neoverse, our brand and initiative for creating Arm-based solutions for the infrastructure market from the edge to the cloud. Today we are proud to announce the Arm Neoverse N1 Platform for revolutionary compute performance and the Arm Neoverse E1 Platform for leading edge throughput efficiency.
Arm’s vision with Neoverse is about more than just processor IP. It is about delivering a complete infrastructure platform and the elements required to enable a robust ecosystem of software, SoCs, systems, and tools for compelling new solutions from the cloud data center to the 5G edge.
To further Arm adoption in the infrastructure market, we have been very active in open source communities and various organizations that support the open source projects.
We, and our partners, are deeply involved in helping further Arm ecosystem support in the cloud data center. Today, we are involved in over 100 open source projects and 25 standards organizations. This work spans operating systems, languages, libraries, tools, virtualization technologies and workloads heavily focused on the cloud native application space. Most recently, we have invested heavily in the container ecosystem by upping our involvement in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and specifically the work around Kubernetes. As we focus on the emergence of new cloud native workloads, being active members of the cloud native community is of high importance.
Another area I would like to highlight is the work around emerging edge networks with LFEdge, a new umbrella organization that aims to establish open, interoperable frameworks for edge computing. Edge infrastructure is undergoing tremendous change with the emergence of 5G and the exponential growth of data at the edge. Arm is driving many of these initiatives through our open source work with Akraino Edge Stack. We invite you to take a look at what we are doing there and the blueprints we are working on together with our technology and carrier partners.
Behind these announcements is a strong developer program that makes Arm instances available to developers across a variety of consumption options. Most notably is the work that has gone on to make Arm Neoverse platforms available through cloud-based options including: Packet and the Works on Arm program, AWS 1 click availability of Arm instances in multiple configurations, Linaro which is the open source community dedicated to developing open source projects on Arm, and VExxhost. All these cloud-based development platforms enable a broad community to collaborate, develop and share to help drive a rapid acceleration of the Arm software ecosystem.
Over the last several months, there have been several announcements that leverage the work above and that have dramatically changed the landscape of Arm in the infrastructure market from a software ecosystem perspective. Here are three I would like to highlight as being significant in their magnitude:
These three are a few examples of the great momentum of our ecosystem partners to continue to expand the diversity and completeness of the Arm software ecosystem. The Arm Infrastructure Developer Community page includes information about many other announcements from our Neoverse partners over the past few months.
As we continue to evolve the entire Arm platform from silicon to software, we encourage you to learn more about the new Arm Neoverse platforms and robust ecosystem that is changing the way people think about infrastructure from the network edge to the cloud data center. I look forward to hearing from the community and collaborating on the journey ahead. Feel free to stop by and see what we are doing, collaborate with the broad ecosystem, and contribute to the next wave in computing as we enable a world of 1 trillion devices together.

Will FreeBSD and mbedOS run on N1? Is code portable from Cortex-A* to N1? Can I use current CLANG/GCC to build for N1/ARMv8.2 or compiler updates are required? :-)
