KALEAO’s KMAX and its Resistance Against Spectre and Meltdown

KMAX architecture is effective against new vulnerabilities

CHARLOTTE, N.C. and CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, Jan. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KALEAO, a technologically innovative server solutions company, today announced a statement regarding how the recent news of the Spectre and Meltdown security flaws is impacting KMAX, KALEAO’s flagship solution for the hyperconverged server market.

KALEAO is pleased to announce that its products are not affected by Meltdown. Additionally, KALEAO’s engineers, following the ARM guidelines, have made available the ARM patch for the KMAX operating system to mitigate the Spectre issue thus restoring a fully secure execution environment for user applications with a negligible impact on performance, especially if compared to the case of other server platforms based on x86 architectures.

The KMAX product line is based on an innovative system architecture that repurposes the low-power 64-bit ARM processors that enable the latest smartphones and tablet CPUs and the deployment of efficient and powerful server platforms for the enterprise and datacenter domains.

“Our KMAX platform does not suffer from the Meltdown issue and has pre-emptively addressed the Spectre vulnerabilities that emerged earlier this year,” said Greg Nicoloso, CMO and Co-Founder, KALEAO. “Other processor manufacturers have been and will be affected more than those based on processors implemented by ARM. Here at KALEAO, we are monitoring this situation closely and can confirm to our customers and partners that our platform is safe from these issues.”
