Most are aware of the heavy use of ARM based technology in the IoT side of Cloud architectures but what many may not realise is that ARM64 based server technology offers capabilities that may well make strong technical and economic sense to Architects looking to build solutions based on OpenStack.

Walk through the use cases where the ARM64 chip offer Cloud based applications specific capabilities that could make the difference between success and failures in your clouds.

What can I expect to learn?

There is often a presumption that ARM chip technologies are only relavent to Cloud Architects for Network or IoT considerations. See how ARM is now using the ARM64 based chips with it's partners to deliver fully supported enterprise ready OpenStack, Compute, Network and Storage options.
