AMD and Oracle collaborating on OpenJDK for ARMv8 64-bit servers

Here's an article on Project Sumatra, the AMD/Oracle collaboration to put Java SE Embedded technology onto their new ARM 64-bit motherboard (which can also accept x86 chips).

See:

AMD and Oracle Collaborate on ARM 64-bit

Here's a quote:

 The board ships with software including 
 the LAMP stack—Red Hat Fedora Linux, 
 Apache web server, MySQL database and 
 PHP tools. The board also supports Java 
 7 and 8, which don’t yet have native 
 support for parallel acceleration across 
 CPUs and graphics processors. The 
 acceleration can be added to Java 
 virtual machines only through extra 
 layers of code. AMD and Oracle are 
 collaborating on an OpenJDK project 
 called Project Sumatra, which will bring 
 native CPU-GPU parallel execution to ARM 
 servers with Java 9, which is due next 
 year.
If you're into Big Iron servers running Java SE Embedded software (best type of combo for power savings and embedded programming), then you'll want Java SE Embedded ARMv8 64-bit support which is on its way. Just get ready, since racks and racks of these ARM 64-bit servers running embedded Java apps will be the next phase of data center processing...
