    Hi all,

    since we did not see any more interest than one specific customer, we are closing this idea as not under consideration. Happy to reevaluate this in 6 months, should we see renewed interest.
    Please feel free to reach out to me directly, if you have any further questions.

    Hi Li Ming Han,

    Instana's backend on ARM is something worth looking into.
    We can consider it within the next two years or so. We do have support for other architectures on the roadmap, and we can reuse what we learn there for ARM.

    I made this idea public, so that other customers can vote here as well.

    I also stripped the customer mentioned in the description, hope that is okay for you.
