Some companies are still testing ARM servers, and it's not yet clear when the technology will take off. HP has one ARM-based server, and Dell and Lenovo are experimenting with the chips. A few small server makers are also offering ARM servers.
Low-cost developer boards are also available to test server applications. LeMaker this week announced the $299 Cello board, which runs AMD's ARM server chip.
Dell in 2012 unveiled a similar cloud service where developers had access to a remote ARM server to develop and test code. But Linaro's service is wider in scope and covers most ARM server hardware platforms.
