Partners Testimonials


"Arm has provided the Arm SystemReady LS certification program as a standard for the industry to establish customer confidence in emerging Arm SoC platforms. We at Ampere Computing were extremely proud last year when the Ampere Mt. Jade platform was the first Ampere server certified as SystemReady. We are continuing this momentum forward by being the first to achieve the System Ready LS v0.9 certification,"

"Google started the LinuxBoot project in 2017, and has been a strong supporter of this project being open, including making the code available as open source to bring these ideas to practice. I am happy to see Arm and Ampere's efforts in achieving SystemReady LS certification with the Mt. Jade system, and look forward to continued broad industry support for LinuxBoot."
