We live in a distributed world where APIs and microservices rule the datacenter, and the datacenter is no longer a physical construct; rather, it’s a combination of clouds, edges and remote computing centers that drive the modern business. Cloud computing and edge computing require applications to be more mobile, resilient, manageable and secure, and this need, in turn, led to the emergence of distributed computing. Applications are no longer monolithic; rather, they are comprised of microservices. These applications are deployed across infrastructure - a range of servers and other compute platforms in multiple locations - to achieve those design goals of resiliency, mobility, manageability and security.

The software ecosystem – from the operating system to the toolsets to workloads and applications − has evolved in response to new compute paradigms and deployment models. This impacts the infrastructure choices to support this new, distributed environment. Just as open source software rules in the distributed computing environment, underlying platform architectures are being evaluated to meet the unique needs of these new workloads.

In this paper, we dive deeper into the forces and business drivers impacting change and how companies like Arm are responding through IP and a rich ecosystem of partners.
