Running an ARM cluster on t4g instances

Has anyone been able to run a cluster on ARM instances before? I was able to get instances running by setting an appropriate AMI at the same time as changing the build/instance type to t4g.small, but now none of the API services are running. What do they even do? Will the rack work without them?

I’m not sure what the rack API is written in. Is it something that could simply be re-compiled for ARM and pushed to Docker Hub as is?

Convox is written in Go, and therefore as a compiled language is likely only compiled for x86. I’ve never done Docker with ARM but in theory you could compile the code for ARM
