Evaluate Scaleway ARM64 servers + docker for RPi builds.
For performance of the RPi build process, it may be beneficial to entirely replace the use of the ARMv7-based
C1 bare metal servers with ARMv8-based
ARM64-2GB VMs from Scaleway.
- Reduce overall deployment & teardown time, as the allocation of the
C1instances take significant amounts of time.
- AArch64 should offer significantly more performance
- The costs of a
ARM64-4GBscales to 6 cores and 4GB at 2x the cost
ARM64-8GBscales to 8 cores and 8GB at 4x the cost
- Docker support is present for AArch64, and viable.
- Making the assumption that the kernel has appropriate mainline support, we should be able to build ARMv6/7 Raspbian images with ease
