Dell Extends ARM-based Server Ecosystem


As an extension to its ARM-based server ecosystem enablement and to further application development and testing to this technology, Dell today announced a donation of an ARM-based server concept to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF.)

ASF is a volunteer community that develops, stewards and incubates nearly 150 open source software projects and initiatives.

Dell believes ARM infrastructures demonstrate promise for web front-end and Hadoop environments, where advantages in performance per dollar and performance per watt are critical. Dell customers use many of Apache's open source software products, including Hadoop, Cassandra, and the Apache HTTP Web Server as part of their big data and cloud computing solutions, so Dell is providing this community with an ARM-based server concept running Calxeda EnergyCore. This server is accessible to all Apache projects for software development and native porting of applications.

The donation includes hosting and technical support for the ASF community. Calxeda is hosting the Dell "Zinc" ARM-based server concept at an Austin-based co-location for remote access by ASF; both Dell and Calxeda will donate time and resources needed for any hardware maintenance, including a commitment to fast resets for maximum use of the server. The ASF infrastructure team will manage the systems, including access, patches and upgrades.

Currently in operation at ASF, the server concept is running continuous integration tools Jenkins and Buildbot; the Apache Hadoop project has performed more than a dozen builds within the first 24 hours of the servers' deployment, and on-going builds are being performed by the Apache Derby, River, Tapestry, and Thrift projects. Other Apache projects, including Traffic Server and Jackrabbit, have expressed interest in live access to the Dell "Zinc" ARM-based server concept.

Similar to the Dell "Copper" ARM server announced in May, the Dell "Zinc" ARM server concept is not generally available.

The Dell ARM-based server is available to the ASF community now at builds.apache.org.
