Shanghai (August 13, 2019) – Ampere®, a developer of high-performance Arm®-based microprocessors for cloud and edge servers, today announced an Asia partner program that will enable distributors and solutions partners in China and Korea to build platforms based on its eMAG® Armv8-A 64-bit processors. For its first product in these markets, Ampere has partnered with a number of local channel partners including LTHPC and Tele-Hot Information Technology in China and GayaData in Korea, and is sampling eMAG to cloud companies in China. Offering a multi-generation roadmap and multiple configurations in China and Korea, Ampere is delivering a powerful yet affordable, energy-efficient and flexible platform that addresses Asia’s growing needs in hyperscale cloud computing, Android cloud gaming and other innovative internet applications.
Since the global company was launched in 2017, Ampere has established its China headquarters in Shanghai and has been working to develop a strong partner ecosystem in the Asia region to facilitate an open source community for software and hardware development. Ampere also joined the Green Computing Consortium (GCC) in 2018 and holds a board position. The GCC is dedicated to the ecosystem development and market promotion of green computing products based on Arm technology.
“We have generated significant interest in the Asia region from partners and cloud companies looking for an alternative Arm-based platform that is flexible and targeted to their unique needs,” said Renee James, chairman and CEO of Ampere and vice chairman of the GCC . “The availability of eMAG in this region will not only drive the development of more open, greener implementations of hyperscale data centers, but it will also expand the partner ecosystem that Ampere has been establishing globally to ensure a truly open source community.”
