ARM powered server?

In Progress

Hi,

We're currently running Yellowfin in an x86 Linux environment on AWS but we're looking into possibly moving from the EC2 c5 series, that we're currently on, to the c6 series, which are powered by ARM processors

Just wondering if there are any issues with java running on ARM that impact Yellowfin? Thinking along the lines of issues exporting dashboards due to JavaFX not working right on ARM or something like that


Thanks

Dean

Hey Dean,

Thanks for reaching out with this.

Looking into this we currently aren't aware of any issues deploying Yellowfin on ARM. However we do know we don't have a supported Docker image of Yellowfin as of yet either. I should note that ARM being a newer architecture, there may be issues encountered not yet documented. As for issues with Java running on ARM that would be difficult for us to say. Looking into Oracles releases on the matter it would seem to be all good: https://blogs.oracle.com/javamagazine/post/java-on-arm-processors-understanding-aarch64-vs-x86

Let me know if you have any questions.

Best,

Jared

Thanks Jared

We'll experiment with this in the future but we've decided not to do it right away as we have some more pressing things we need to change

I'll come back with any findings when we do try it but also if you do receive feedback from other clients, I'd appreciate if you could share those here also


Thanks

Hey Dean,

Hope you are well.

I wanted to let you know, our dev team is currently looking into the compatibility of the M1 processors and cloud instances.

Once there are any further updates regarding this I will be sure to provide those to you here!

Best,

Jared

Thanks Jared! That'll hopefully save us the bother so!

Just to confirm, we're looking at using the EC2 C6g / C6gn instances so if they are included, that would be great


Thanks

Dean
