ARM servers apparently exist at last

Check out what I found at Pogo Linux (h/t Bryan Lunduke):

ARM R150-T62
2 x Cavium® ThunderX™ 48 Core ARM processors
16 x DDR4 DIMM slots
3 x 40GbE QSFP+ LAN ports
4 x 10GbE SFP+ LAN ports
4 x 3.5” hot-swappable HDD/SSD bays
650W 80 PLUS Platinum redundant PSU

The prices are ridiculouts, but at least it's a server with CentOS.

4-node 2U Gigabyte H270-T70 server costs 2X that but has 4X the power, just in case.
Well yeah. Pogo has those too.
The larger cost is going to be the memory. For fully populating the DIMM slots with 128GB ECC RDIMM modules (2TB total, 10GB/CPU), you need another €40,000; even the cheaper 1TB option is going to be €12,000. The Centos kernel uses 64KB page size, so you need much more RAM than on an x86 box.
