Linux Would you believe that ARM processors, those little chips that power so many smartphones and tablets, have a future on servers? Ubuntu does.

I have heard rumors that Red Hat is working hard on ARM for the server environment. Some hardware maker recently announced that they have servers coming out that will pack 10k cores into a single rack. Thats pretty awesome.

From what I have heard, the biggest thing holding people working on ARM back is the lack of high through put systems. One person I know working on Fedora for ARM is using a cluster built out of ARM boards, but they lack gigabit or high speed data connections. That was slowing things down a bit according to him.
