TryStack.org Adds ARM Technology-Powered Zone

Heading - TBD

Today is a monumental day in ARM server history! TryStack.org, the hosted cloud sandbox for OpenStack, now has an ARM-based OpenStack zone in addition to the x86 zone. (This is, to our knowledge, the first OpenStack cluster made publicly available on an ARM-based system!)

For those of you not familiar with TryStack, it's a community maintained OpenStack cloud made possible by the donations of a handful of IT hardware and service providers. This new zone is free by the generous contributions from Calxeda, Canonical, CoreNAP and HP.
