In this session, we will talk about the RISC-V software eco-system as it pertains to the enterprise and datacenter market segments primarily focused around Linux. Enterprise market segments include storage, networking and control plane while datacenter market segments include web tier, data analytics, social media, databases and such. The session will walk thru the various applications and workloads that are deployed within these market segments and their availability and status for RISC-V. We will take a bottoms-up approach starting with the lowest level of hardware and then working our way up the software stack including the tools, simulators, compilers, firmware, bios, OS, hypervisor, middleware and applications discussing the availability of each of these components within the RISC-V software ecosystem. The session will also provide an overview into the actual porting exercise of what it takes to port an application from upstream to the RISC-V architecture in terms of the steps and typical time taken, with multiple example applications.
