The C1 ServerScaleway started selling ARM based hosted server in April. I've intended to blog about this for a while, since it was time to upgrade from wheezy to jessie was timely, why not switch provider from an X86 based to ARM one at the same time?
In many ways scaleway node is opposite to what "Enterprise ARM" people are working on. Each server is based on an oldish ARMv7 Quad-Core Marvell Armada XP, instead of a brand new 64-bit ARMv8 cpu. There is no UEFI, ACPI or any other "industry standards" involved, just a smooth web interface and a command line tool to manage your node(s). And the node is yours, it's not shared with others with virtualization. The picture above is a single node, which is stacked with 911 other nodes into a single rack.This week, the C1 price was dropped to a very reasonable €2.99 per month, or €0.006 per hour.
