Arm SystemReady is a set of standards and a compliance certification program that ensures software just works. Systems that are designed to just work should install and run generic or specified, off-the-shelf operating systems straight out of the box.
To do this, the system design must follow a set of minimum hardware and firmware requirements. Arm SystemReady builds on and replaces the former successful Arm ServerReady program, originally aimed at servers. Arm SystemReady applies the standards framework to a broader set of devices, initially applying across the server, embedded server and high-performance IoT ecosystems, extending from the cloud to the infrastructure and IoT edge.
