Transcript

  • 1. Linaro Connect Europe 2013 George Grey CEO
  • 2. Welcome to Dublin Making a difference
  • 3. • Linaro develops and optimizes open source software for the ARM ecosystem • 170+ open source software engineers • Linux kernel, Toolchain, Power management • LAVA CI test & validation • Deliver upstream, distribution agnostic • Members provide funding and assigned engineers to Linaro • ROI through shared engineering costs for core software ecosystem requirements • Members direct Linaro’s work • Linaro Groups enable work in specific areas - Linaro Enterprise Group for ARM Servers - Linaro Networking Group for Network Equipment - Other Group(s) coming
  • 4. • Linaro team now numbers 192 staff • Linaro employees 97 • Assignee engineers 95 • ~150 shared engineers working together on open source for the ARM architecture • Including LEG and LNG • Excluding landing teams and non-engineering functions • Directed by the steering committees • TSC, LEG-SC, LNG-SC • Creating value for every Linaro member
  • 5. Linux Kernel Upstreaming • Linux 3.10 released 30th June • Total patch sets in this kernel release: 13637 • Over 200 companies contributed to this kernel release Source: http://lwn.net/Articles/555867/ Linux 3.10 Contributors by company 1 None 1495 (11.1%) 2 Red Hat 1269 (9.4%) 3 Intel 912 (6.8%) 4 Linaro 877 (6.5%) 5 Texas Instruments 765 (5.7%) 6 Unknown 746 (5.5%) 7 Samsung 615 (4.6%) 8 IBM 402 (3.0%) 9 Vision 392 (2.9%) 10 Google 350 (2.6%) Linaro is #3 company contributor
  • 6. Slide 6 Data
  • 7. Photos • 300 million photos/day – Facebook alone • Average 100KB 30,000,000,000,000 bytes/day
  • 8. Dropcam • $150 WiFi HD Camera • 500K bits/sec 24 hours/day • Applications • Home security, Alert systems • Every 10,000 units create: 54,000,000,000,000 bytes/day
  • 9. Video • 6 billion hours of video/month viewed on YouTube • Assume 1MB/minute 12,000,000,000,000,000 bytes/day
  • 10. Video • NetFlix • SD 1GB/hour HD 2.8GB/hour • 1 billion hours of TV shows/month 48,000,000,000,000,000 bytes/day
  • 11. Data Growth Wireless Server DataCenter Photos IoT low-power M2M 4G LTE HyperScalar Video MicroServer Netflix BigData YouTube Mobile Facebook Storage Energy SoC Low-power HDTV multicore Exabytes 2,500,000,000,000,000,000 bytes/day
  • 12. Hardware • Google glass, Phones, Tablets, Fitness monitors, Health monitors, Embedded devices, Computers, Intelligent cables, Thermostats, Routers, Switches, Smart lights, Storage, Set Top Boxes, Cars, TVs, Digital Cameras, Camcorders, Smart Meters, Microservers, Hyperscale servers ..... • ARM is everywhere
  • 13. Industry Disruption • Today – the entire industry is being disrupted • Mobile - Smartphones, Tablets • Embedded markets - TV, Cameras, Consumer electronics, Cars • Networking - Routers, Switches, Cloud • Servers - Micro, Hyperscale, HPC • IOT - Huge future impact on cloud, data, analysis • One size no longer fits all • One vendor alone cannot compete • ARM’s business model and partners are key
  • 14. Meeting the Challenge • Two key agents of change: SoCs Open Source Software
  • 15. ARM SoCs • Building Blocks • R/M Microcontrollers • Cortex-A Series • 32 bit ARMv7 A5 to A15, including big.LITTLE • 64 bit ARMv8 A53, A57 • Mali GPU – Graphics or GPGPU • Trustzone security • All cores implement the ARM architecture • ARM vendors then focus on value add • Low cost multicore devices – e.g. 4 core A7 and baseband for low cost smartphones/tablets • High end 32 and 64 bit functionality – e.g. server focused SoCs with accelerators, interconnect I/O and fabrics
  • 16. Example - Networking & Servers
  • 17. Open Source • One company alone cannot develop and support software for this rate of innovation • Open source software is the only viable solution • Linux is evolving rapidly as change accelerates • Depends on an increasing number of contributors • 2,829 developers from 407 companies contributed to Linux 3.4-3.8* • Working upstream - forking and maintaining is very expensive • Working inside the open source community saves time & money • Open source is a huge shared-cost ecosystem *Source: Greg Kroah-Hartman, Linux Foundation
  • 18. Example - Android • Open source platform for mobile devices based on Linux • Current version is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 19. Android in Linaro Android is important for Linaro • Engineering activities • Power Management – multicore, • Tools optimizations – gcc, cortex-strings • New ARM technology test & validation – big.LITTLE, ARMv8 • Upstreaming Android functionality to mainline • Gives us a platform for testing • Stresses the components that we’re engineering • Gives us a platform for benchmarking • Looking for areas to improve performance of the overall system • Google leverages Linaro’s kernel work
  • 20. Industry Collaboration • Linaro • Competitors collaborating on engineering of core software • Sharing the cost of common software foundations • The industry is changing from single proprietary suppliers for core technologies, to open source driven partnerships built on collaboration
  • 21. Innovation • Working together from requirements to solutions • Sharing and lowering costs • Building standard platforms that enable value-add • Examples: kernel optimization, SoC hardware acceleration, fabrics ARM Cores SoC Vendor IPARM Cores SoC Vendor IP ARM Cores SoC Vendor IP Linux kernel Tools, Languages, Middleware, Security Carriers Internet Content Providers & Social Networks Financial …… Silicon, Boards, Products OS Platforms Cloud Layer Users OPEN SOURCE COLLABORATION
  • 22. Beyond arm-soc • ARM dominates mobile • Intel dominates server chips • Each is moving into the other’s market • Mobile Linux kernel technology is being used in the server space and vice-versa, especially in power management • We can no longer work in just the ARM community • Greg Kroah-Hartman – Linaro Connect, Hong Kong February 2013 • ARM/PMWG maintains CPUFreq with Intel, and Linaro has contributed over 40% of the kernel patches in this subsystem since Linux 3.7 • LKML discussions on the scheduler changes for GTS* • Linaro is adding Intel into LAVA for CI loop test and validation • Industry collaboration is becoming critical for success, and Linaro has a key part to play *Global Task Scheduling a.k.a. big.LITTLE MP
  • 23. Linaro – Making the Difference • Our core work • Linux kernel, Power Management, Graphics & Multimedia, Tools, Engineering Builds & Validation (LAVA) • Key glue between SoC vendor innovation and Linux • Not just the kernel • Tools, Virtualization, Languages, Stacks, Middleware • Open Source Security is an area of increasing interest to members • Groups • LEG (Servers), LNG (Networking Equipment) • Working in specific areas where a group of companies wants to share software development costs e.g. STB/TV, Embedded, Automotive • Our focus is on optimizing and building the core platform and tools to support innovation and differentiation
  • 24. Summary • SoC innovation, power efficiency and choice of silicon suppliers will drive further ARM growth across the industry • Innovation and differentiation drives the need for common platform software to prevent costly fragmentation • Open Source is evolving rapidly to enable disruptive solutions to the explosion in user data and analysis • Users, Frameworks, Distributions, OEMs, Silicon vendors are collaborating more closely than ever before, enabled by Open Source • Linaro is a key enabler in the ARM ecosystem
  • 25. Linaro Connect Europe • Make a difference – this week • Show what you have achieved – Demo Friday • Collaborate and work together as part of the ARM open source community • Make a point to meet 10 new people this week • Have fun!
  • 26. Linaro Connect USA • October 28th – November 1st • Santa Clara Convention Center • Co-located with ARM Techcon • Registration is now open!
