ARM is not about the status quo : Open source breeds new architectures

ARM is bringing things like integration, heterogeneous processing into play, and “whether you’re in a converged infrastructure world where you want to integrate multiple functionalities together, the degrees of freedom that you have with all the innovative choices from the ARM partners is pretty high,” explained Mandyam.
