In this video from the CloudStack Collaboration Conference 2012, Ripal Nathuji from Calxeda presents: GreenClouds: Combining cloud computing software with energy efficient ARM hardware.

As a first step towards merging cloud computing with power efficient server infrastructures, we have been working with the bare metal support in CloudStack to deploy instances on ARM servers. Looking forward, as ARM continues to extend features including hardware virtualization support in future processors, the options and opportunities for integration with CloudStack will continue to expand.
