Dell on Tuesday said that it has launched a 64-bit ARM proof of concept microserver with Applied Micro and its X-Gene chip.
Applied Micro is already a partner with HP on its ARM-based Moonshot server effort. Dell has been steadily launching proof-of-concept microservers for showcase at its Solution Centers, but hasn't gone production with ARM microservers.
For now, Dell appears content to continue to showcase the possibilities for ARM servers and wait for broader adoption before a big push.
In a blog post, Dell said that it is testing ARM servers with select customers. Dell announced a bevy of partnerships at the Open Compute Summit next week.
Dell is also showcasing microservers based on Intel's Atom processor.
