Cloud Launched to Move x86 Apps to ARM

Boston Limited, which – don’t be fooled – is in England – is peddling the world’s first commercially available ARM-as-a-Service (AaaS), a cloud service offering engineers remote access to preconfigured systems so they can move their server apps – specifically x86 server apps – to ARM.
The widgetry is based on Calxeda’s still 32-bit EnergyCore ARM-based processor technology.
Boston’s AaaS platform is supposed to give developers all the tools and services required to port and migrate software to the ARM platform, which promises to be 64-bit around the end of the year.
Boston has teamed with its UK neighbor Ellexus to offer Breeze, software ARM itself uses to profile and troubleshoot applications on its own HPC cluster.
