LEAP: Linux for Enterprise ARM Platforms
The LEAP Project is a Linux software distribution specifically intended to showcase the capabilities of emerging 64-bit Enterprise ARM Server platforms under a variety of workloads. It has as its foundation an ARMv8/AArch64 build of the CentOS 7.1 sources, with various patches, backports, and package up-versioning as appropriate, plus additional benchmarking packages to enable the effective evaluation and demonstration of AArch64 server systems.
The LEAP software environment is very similar to enterprise Linux systems on traditional x86_64 servers, simplifying the task of transitioning workloads to ARM64 servers for evaluation.
