    In 2017, Cavium, Qualcomm, and Applied Micro were all sampling ARM-based SoCs targeted at data center servers. With Applied Micro spinning off its server CPU business to newly founded Ampere Computing and Qualcomm demonstrating no tangible design wins after announcing commercial availability for its Centriq SoC in November 2017, hopes for success of an ARM-based CPU ecosystem moved to Cavium, and in 2017 Cavium kept the design wins and partnership announcements coming. In January, Atos announced Cavium’s ThunderX2 will power its HPC for the EU-funded Mont Blanc project. In March, Cavium announced a partnership with Microsoft and in November revealed designs for a Cavium-powered Project Olympus OCP server. In May, Gigabyte, Ingrasys, and Inventec announced and subsequently launched new servers based on ThunderX2. In June, Penguin announced its Open Compute server lineup will feature a ThunderX2 sku.
