Marvell has entered a broader strategic partnership with Arm to accelerate the design and development of next-generation Marvell ThunderX server processor technology. This new agreement includes dedicated Arm support for Marvell’s R&D in the server processor technology area for at least three more years. As a result, Marvell can further expand its Arm-based server products and roadmap to enable the next generation of cloud and data center infrastructure.
Marvell and Arm share a vision for bringing differentiated, scalable, and highly optimized server processor solutions to multiple markets — from high-performance cloud computing all the way to the network edge. The companies have closely collaborated over the last decade to launch a compelling alternative to the x86 computing market with industry-leading technology backed by a rich ecosystem. Marvell’s ThunderX2, based on the Armv8-A architecture, is the industry’s most widely supported Arm-based server processor, providing higher performance, lower power, and reduced total cost of ownership versus currently deployed architectures.
