"Red Hat is collaborating with AppliedMicro to enable support for ARM’s 64-bit ARMv8 architecture used in the upcoming X-Gene Server-on-Chip designs," Masters said.
"We aim to have a remix of Fedora 19 available in time to support the roll out of that platform."
AppliedMicro general manager of X-Gene Vinay Ravuri said that the X-Gene platform is designed to enable web front end, big data, search and grid farm applications at a price/performance level previously not seen.
"Open source is a key piece of the equation that, when combined with our fully integrated, purpose-built Server-on-Chip, delivers the cost efficiency, power and performance needed to serve evolving data center workloads," Ravuri said.
The unveiling of the initial support for the X-Gene platform being added to the Fedora Linux distribution will be at the upcoming 2012 ARM TechCon on 1 November 2012.
