  14. 14. ARM Server Hardware The most significant thing is the way data centres are going...with the Amazons and the Facebooks and their Chinese equivalents, theres been a shift in how the whole software ecosystem has been built out. Although software packages such as Windows Server are currently designed solely for the x86 platform, Linux and apps built for it can happily run on ARM processors. Instead of traditional software packages from Oracle, Microsoft and SAP, there is a combination of user owned software and open source.... - Ian Ferguson, ARM
  15. 15. ARM Server Hardware For a non-x86 architecture, theres an opportunity to compete, with less ties to x86 binaries and things like that. Clearly,Windows has a very strong position in the enterprise server markets, but in the cloud its heavily centred around Linux. - Ian Ferguson, ARM
