Arm has unveiled Arm Neoverse solutions, a new roadmap of products aimed at powering tomorrow’s infrastructure from the core data center and cloud to the edge. Arm Neoverse solutions are uniquely designed for higher-levels of performance, security, and scalability not seen today, according to Arm.
Arm also provided a first look at its Neoverse processor IP roadmap, with early details on upcoming platforms optimized for “leading-edge” process nodes. The new roadmap is designed specifically for infrastructure, beginning with the launch of the ‘Ares’ IP platform in early 2019 on 7nm and delivering staggering performance gains of 30 percent per generation through 2021.
“SUSE has been an early and enthusiastic supporter of Arm technology. Customers use SUSE products to support IT infrastructure based on Arm processors for High Performance Computing, Cloud, Storage, Network infrastructure, and Edge Computing,” said Brent Schroeder, SUSE Chief Technology Officer, Americas. “The introduction of the Arm Neoverse technology roadmap will accelerate the transformation of IT infrastructure by delivering technology and ecosystems tailored for specific workloads.”
The Neoverse IP roadmap has been specifically architected for the unique performance, efficiency, and scalability requirements needed to keep up with changing data patterns, new workloads, and the ever-increasing demands of an infrastructure evolving to support a trillion intelligent devices.
“Today, Arm is sending disruptive shockwaves across the cloud, networking and storage world as Arm Neoverse delivers the foundation for the new global infrastructure to enable a trillion connected devices,” said Drew Henry, senior vice president and general manager, Infrastructure Line of Business, Arm. “Arm Neoverse IP will enable a broad set of our ecosystem partners to transform infrastructure from cloud to edge and push compute to where it’s most needed, store data where most appropriate, and evolve networking to securely connect this complex world.”
Arm Neoverse addresses a diverse range of use cases including hyperscale cloud datacenters, storage solutions, and 5G networks. Arm Neoverse is based on guiding design principles centered around:
- World-class high performance, secure IP and architectures purpose-built for cloud native and networked workloads
- A highly-scalable set of IP optimized for leading-edge process nodes, including ‘Ares’ (7nm), ‘Zeus’ (7nm+), and ‘Poseidon’ (5nm), designed to enable systems across the infrastructure
- A “robust” ecosystem empowered to build unique and diverse solutions targeting a wide range of use-cases through leveraged investment in unified software, tools, and silicon platforms
“The modern datacenter is no longer a physical construct, but a center of data and compute residing in the cloud and on the edge,” said Patrick Moorhead, Principal Analyst, Moor Insights & Strategy. “More than ever, organizations must consider distributed, connected datacenter design methods to support the data and devices coming in the 5G world. Arm is one of those rapidly emerging in the market and with Arm Neoverse purpose-built IP, it should be well-positioned to support many of the compute spectrum needs from hyperscale to edge access.”
