Linaro Connect Europe 2013 (LCE13) Hosts First Demonstration of KVM on AppliedMicro's ARM(R) 64-bit Hardware

Following the Public Showing of Its X-Gene(TM) ARMv8 64-bit Server on a Chip(TM) Solution at the Red Hat Summit, AppliedMicro Demonstrated KVM Running on the X-Gene Platform

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/26/13 -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), also known as AppliedMicro, hosted the world's first demonstration of KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) running on X-Gene™ on July 12, 2013 in Dublin, Ireland.

The demonstration showed KVM ARMv8 64-bit based virtualization on the AppliedMicro X-C1 hardware platform, featuring the company's X-Gene Server on a Chip™ silicon solution. This solution consists of eight ARMv8 64-bit processors running four SMP Linux guest VMs (two ARMv7 32-bit and two ARMv8 64-bit guests) with web servers running concurrently on each VM using VirtIO-based network virtualization. The web servers delivered HTML web pages with varying graphical content.

ARM handled porting KVM for this demonstration from 32-bit to 64-bit, while AppliedMicro engineers brought the KVM up on the hardware, and Linaro ensured a robust solution.

"It's very exciting to be working with AppliedMicro on the world's first ARMv8 64-bit hardware platform," said George Grey, Linaro CEO. "Showcasing KVM virtualization running on this platform during the Linaro Connect Demo was a very rewarding experience."

"We are very proud of the ARM, Linaro, and AppliedMicro software engineers who teamed up to develop and demonstrate KVM on AppliedMicro's X-Gene™ Cloud Server™ system, bringing to reality enterprise-class virtualization on ARM 64-bit servers," said Dr. Paramesh Gopi, President and CEO of AppliedMicro. "Enterprise and private cloud customers can now access a complete set of tools to enable low-TCO Platform-as-a-Service applications and to accelerate the seamless transition to ARMv8 64-bit hardware."

Linaro Connect 2013 in Dublin, Ireland played host to over 300 engineers working on open source software for the latest ARM processor technology. The attendees from Linaro's 25 member companies were joined by other key players in the ARM ecosystem to define the future of Linux on ARM. The event concluded on July 12 with Demo Friday -- an opportunity for working groups, individual contributors, and member companies like AppliedMicro to showcase their most recent developments.
