AMD gave its first public demonstration of Seattle, the company's upcoming ARM-based server processor. The chip is based on the ARM Cortex-A57 core and AMD demonstrated it by giving a web hosting demonstration. AMD showed the machine running a WordPress blog and streaming a video.
The demo involved web hosting. AMD showed the entire LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack running on top of a Seattle-powered development server. You probably can't read the little spec sheet in the picture above, so here's what it says:
AMD Opteron A1100 series development platform
AMD Opteron A1100 Series processor
4 registered DIMM slots for up to 128GB of DDR3 DRAM
PCI Express connectors configurable as single x8 or dual x4 ports
8 Serial ATA connectors
Compatibility with standard power supplies
Linux environment based on Fedora
The demo kicked off with this system spitting out web pages with information about the various software installed: Apache 2.4.6, MySQL 5.5.35, and PHP 5.4.16. The operating system was identified as "Red Hat Server for ARM 2.0 (development preview)," although I don't see that release referenced on the Red Hat website.
