In an effort to spearhead popularity and adoption, AMD has proposed a micro-ATX development kit built on the foundation of the A1100. This project is set to include a Fedora-based Linux environment with development tools, Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Java 7 and 8. AMD’s intentions for ARM based servers are great, and they estimate that by 2019, 25% of servers will be powered by similar processors.
The brains live in a model B Raspberry Pi. I installed the GNU/Linux distribution Raspbian using the easy NOOBS on an SD card, then installed RasPBX -- FreePBX and Asterisk -- using the Pi Store via the desktop as that was easiest.
The development kit packages the processors into a Micro-ATX form factor, along with the necessary connectors for developers to throw memory, power and communications at it, and a basic software stack of GNU/Linux, device drivers, Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Java 7 and 8.
