Developers taking advantage of the tie-up will not have to change how they code. They will just have more direct access to frameworks from both companies.

Amazon also offers Arm-based compute instances in its public cloud, but Packet and Ampere say theirs is more powerful.
Under its new IoT security certification program, Arm teamed up with third-body testing labs to provide independent security certification.
“This N1 platform is really about the core compute you need in the hyperscale data center, at the 5G base station, or at an internet gateway,” said Drew Henry, Arm’s SVP and GM for infrastructure.
The new group’s list of founding members reads like a who’s who of chipmakers, telecommunications companies, cloud providers, edge infrastructure vendors, and others.
Huawei says it will still continue its long-term strategic partnerships with Intel, but that computing demands have become more diverse.
The company says that using the custom Arm processors could cut costs as much as 40 percent.
Intel says not to worry and that the earlier patches it issued address these new security flaws as well as the older hardware bugs.
Neoverse represents a new unifying brand identity for ARM-based technology for high performance computing, cloud, storage, network infrastructure, and edge computing.
Network virtualization has primarily focused on software. But now there’s interest in the lower layers of the network: commodity hardware and the silicon that drives the hardware.
Instead of manufacturing chips, ARM provides its instruction set architecture to its customers — such as Qualcomm, Broadcom, NXP, and Marvell — and those companies manufacture the chips.
The company says the Pelion IoT Platform “definitely complements our chip design business.”
Its push into IoT is undoubtedly initiated by ARM’s parent company SoftBank, which is investing billions in technologies including IoT through its SoftBank Vision Fund.
The report includes a glossary of edge computing terms and definitions that is being funneled into The Linux Foundation.
With ARM, NXP, Marvell, and Cavium, Telco Systems is focusing on the development of performance acceleration, containerization of VNFs, and cybersecurity.
