Job postings suggest Amazon is planning to make its own ARM-based servers. TweakTown reports the online shopping giant has hired many former engineers as well as the former CTO from Calxeda, a Texas-based ARM server chip firm that went out of business in late 2013.
Most of the employees that Amazon have hired so far are former employees of a Texas-based company called 'Calxeda' which makes ARM-based servers. The online retail giant will also be hiring Calxeda's former CTO.

Many employees have taken positions such as Principal engineer, silicon optimization and hardware design engineer, director of silicon optimizations at Amazon web services. Currently, there's a job listing for a CPU architect/Micro-architect. Seeing that the company is very aggressive in its hiring spree and people have started working since this month, its a no-brainer that the company is really into it.
