Accelerating Next-Generation Computing Architectures

RISC-V is an open and scalable compute architecture that will enable the diversity of Big Data and Fast Data applications and workloads proliferating in core cloud data centers and in remote and mobile systems at the edge. RISC-V leverages open-source innovation and the evolution of purpose-built architectures to maximize the value of data insights well into the future. Western Digital is leading the advancement of data-centric compute environments through the work of the RISC-V Foundation. As a leader in the RISC-V initiative, Western Digital aims to accelerate the advancement of the technology and the surrounding ecosystem by transitioning its own consumption of processors – over one billion cores per year – to RISC-V.
