Red Hat: Keeping pace with multiple architectures – Part 2
In our first post of discussing Red Hat’s multi-architecture strategy, we focused on the disruptive nature of enabling new and rapidly-evolving architectures and how this enablement necessitates a different set of product requirements to fulfill our vision of providing a consistent and familiar experience to our customers across multiple hardware architectures. While we have been working with many original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) on x86_64-based servers for years, we have seen interest from our customer base in delivering parity across multiple architectures, including IBM Power Little Endian (ppc64le) and ARMv8-A (aarch64).
So what exactly are we doing with our partners to make this happen, both in the community and within the enterprise ecosystem?
Red Hat and IBM have a long history of collaborating on Linux, going back more than 18 years. This year, Red Hat joined the OpenPower foundation as a Platinum member, expanding our collaboration within that ecosystem. Many interesting designs are being brought to market by OpenPower partners and we are providing input and governance on several of them to benefit our mutual customers. Through this ecosystem collaboration in the recent months, we have seen more engagement from our mutual customers that have been asking Red Hat to bring the rest of our enterprise software portfolio to IBM Power LE (ppc64le) architecture.
