Add support for AWS "Graviton" Processors

As a hosting provider, I would like you to add support for AWS "Graviton" Processors on your AWS image. They offer more bang for the buck and reduce hosting costs. They are so much better, AWS is moving all of their services to them. S3, RDS, etc. This is also a larger trend as apple is moving its entire line to arm.

Where is cPanel at on this? Linux has had support for ARM on a variety of Operating Systems for awhile, including RHEL and CloudLinux.

AWS has launched early this year a brand new instance family based on ARM64 and at improved price and performance over other x86_64 instance families. As a system administrator I would be very happy to see cPanel support this type of architecture.

This is no longer the case. Look up the AWS "Graviton" Processors. They offer so much more bang for the buck and reduce hosting costs, that AWS is moving all of their services to them. S3, RDS, etc. This is also a larger trend as apple is moving its entire line to arm.

This is very much no longer true, ARM is gaining vast traction for datacentre workloads. https://www.datacenterknowledge.com/hardware/huge-week-arm-data-center-too

That simply is not true!

There are many enterprise manufactures that support arm64 systems. These are on sale right now!

To name one. Gigabyte make a 2U server that has dual Arm chips.

Even VMware are now starting to support arm so I think it is kind of silly to say that it has no place in datacenters. The entire world is starting to adopt arm technologies even more now and all of the core services such as postfix, apache, nginx, php, dovecot etc all support arm.

So, any news on this? Would it be possible for cPanel to run in ARM architecture?
