"The Ampere developer program provides openness and is a place to find tools, documentation and developer collaboration that will drive adoption of our products," said Mauri Whalen, vice president of software engineering at Ampere. "We are already working with communities such as Packet, WorksOnArm, OpenJDK and participating in open projects like the Linux Kernel, gcc/llvm, OpenBMC and other cloud technologies to ensure compatibility with our eMAG platform. By providing access to a development environment with open standards and full open documentation, we can expand the ecosystem and optimize the developer experience to innovate on cloud applications not yet imagined."

The new developer program includes the following tools and resources:

  • Forums
  • Documentation
    • Ampere eMAG Technical Readiness Manual
    • Ampere Linux Kernel Optimization Guide

Ampere's eMAG Arm processors are building the foundation of the new cloud frontier. eMAG processors are purpose-built for large-scale public and private cloud environments, delivering advantages through high-performance cores, high-speed connectivity, high memory throughput and carrier-grade reliability. Ampere's eMAG products are shipping now to customers.

Demonstrations of the eMAG processor in action will be shown at Arm TechCon Booth #1701:

  • Live Cassandra demo showcasing eMAG performance

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
Take advantage of autoscaling, and high availability for Kubernetes with no worry about infrastructure. Be the Rockstar and avoid all the hurdles of deploying Kubernetes.

Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...

While a hybrid cloud can ease that transition, designing and deploy that hybrid cloud still offers challenges for organizations concerned about lack of available cloud skillsets within their organization. Managed service providers offer a unique opportunity to fill those gaps and get organizations of all sizes on a hybrid cloud that meets their comfort level, while delivering enhanced benefits for cost, efficiency, agility, mobility, and elasticity.
Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...
