Business Wire

MARKHAM, Ontario -- February 14, 2013

Univa, the Data Center Automation Company, today announced that its Univa Grid
Engine software will support ARM (LON: ARM; Nasdaq: ARMH), the world's leading
semiconductor intellectual property (IP) supplier. ARM designs the technology
that is at the heart of advanced digital products, from wireless, networking
and consumer entertainment solutions to imaging, automotive, security and
storage devices. With Univa Grid Engine supporting ARM, dynamic workloads are
automatically placed, enabling ARM to perform tasks far more quickly and
efficiently. Univa Grid Engine for ARM Beta is available immediately at
http://www.univa.com/resources/univa-grid-engine-arm-beta.php.

“Large enterprise users have become increasingly interested in using ARM-based
chips in the data center as the focus shifts from performance to making their
servers more energy efficient,” said Fritz Ferstl, Univa CTO. “ARM-based
servers support multiple use cases in the modern data center as part of a
larger trend toward matching the server hardware to the workload. Univa Grid
Engine, the leading intelligent workload management solution in the
enterprise, excels at automating the placement of dynamic workloads across all
architectures from Intel x86_64, Intel Xeon Phi, NVIDIA GPGPUs and now
ARM-based resources.”

“Driven by the demand for new datacenter services to support mobile and cloud
computing, ARM will continue to gain in-roads into the datacenter server
market because of the low-power and energy efficient design of SOC's based on
ARM's technology,” said Karl Freund, VP Marketing at Calxeda. “As enterprises
shift towards highly scalable solutions such as Calxeda, a key enabling
technology is intelligent workload management – and we have partnered with
Univa to provide our customers with a great solution.”

Univa Grid Engine is the industry leading distributed resource management
platform that enables shared infrastructures under multiple workloads
including Hadoop, a Big Data software framework that supports data-intensive
distributed applications. Sharing the infrastructure allows enterprises to
more efficiently and rapidly deploy and to operationalize a mission critical
Hadoop application.
