6WIND’s packet processing software helps Telcos deploy ARM servers as an alternative to both x86 servers and incumbent hardware solutions by increasing the performance and efficiency per processor core for service workloads. In this session we will provide an overview of 6WIND software, our offerings on ARM servers and an NFV use case with our partner Qualcomm that integrates hypervisor networking power with high performance routing VMs with line rate throughput.

Server chips based on the ARM v8A architecture deliver greater core density and lower power consumption for your datacenter. Azul’s Zulu build of OpenJDK is a widely-deployed open source Java platform that is freely available, fully conformant to the Java SE specification, and supports the ARM v8 architecture. In this presentation we’ll look at how using Zulu makes moving enterprise Java applications to the ARM-enabled data center easy and cost efficient while delivering excellent performance.

In this presentation, we will look at the latest solutions from the OpenFastPath (OFP) and OpenDataPlane(ODP) projects, and how these projects in combination can address the needs for high performance IP communication in the datacentre. We will cover both the basic technology, as well as some recent performance numbers and results measured on real-world applications.

The next flagship supercomputer in Japan, replacement of the K supercomputer and thus we call it post-K supercomputer, is being designed to be operated in early 2020s. Its node architecture and interconnect are respectively ARM V8 SVC and a 6-D mesh/torus network designed by Fujitsu. The system software developed for the post-K supercomputer includes a novel operating system for general-purpose manycore architectures, low-level communication and MPI libraries, and file I/O middleware. After introducing an overview of the post K architecture, the current status of the system software development will be presented.

Ceph block I/O performance is the basis for achieving database and virtual machine performance for business-critical applications. In order to achieve a balance of storage I/O performance with infrastructure costs for Ceph clusters, solid state storage with Arm processors can be deployed an optimal cost justification on a $/GB basis. This presentation provides an overview of storage performance benchmarks to help formulate a scalable Ceph cluster environment for performance-oriented deployments.

A run-time bug in operating system software that enables car control can result in loss of life or limb. Safety assessors require evidence that such software is provably free from any bugs. These proofs are inevitably a combination of software development best practices and a lot of test coverage. But can we be sure that it is enough ? Really really sure ? What if we used maths to absolutely guarantee that there are zero bugs in the operating system core ? This session presents seL4 - a military grade open source project that uses machine checked formal verification to prove that the C language implementation of the seL4 kernel and it's resulting binaries are free from bugs. This then permits running Linux safely in virtual machines on top of seL4 - something that the Auto world demands.

The uptake of Linux in modern cars is on the rise. It is very hard to make Linux safe enough for safety assessors. Thus far the industry has used a proprietary layer of safety certifiable system software that in addition to running mission critical applications also allows running Linux safely in virtual machines. Can that layer be open source as well ? Without compromising on safety and security certifiability ? This session presents L4Re - an open source project that ticks a lot of boxes in order to let Linux be what it's good at while providing the safety that the Auto world demands.
