Ubuntu OpenStack ARMv8-A
Canonical has announced that Ubuntu OpenStack and Ceph "are now commercially available and supported on processors and servers based on 64-bit ARMv8-A architecture."
The company reckons that as telcos and businesses build scale-out infrastructure, they're willing to do it on 64-bit ARM-powered servers and storage. Canonical is therefore going where those customers want to be, banking on the success of its OpenStack distribution on other platforms as proof it's ready to do the same with ARM-powered computers. ®
