The idea behind ARM processors is not new reduced instruction set computing (RISC) eliminates certain instructions to simplify processor architecture. ARM chips are the power-efficient brains behind a wide range of hardware, from printers to smart phones. The concept is catching on in the server arena with 64-bit ARM server chip designs arriving to let data center operators dial down computing power for particular needs.
