Scaleaway launched their hosting services with dedicated ARM servers based on Marvell Armada 370/XP quad core ARM Cortex A9 processor this spring for 10 Euros per month, or 0.02 Euro per hour, and at the time, some people found it was not that attractive, as similarly priced plans provided by Linode or DigitalOcean with Intel server were also available, and it might have only been really compelling for people who specifically required an ARM server to play with. The company has now slashed its price, and it has become very attractive at 2.99 Euros (~$3.37 US) per month or 0.006 Euro per hour, excluding VAT.
The server technical specifications and features are still the same:
- Server based on Marvell Armada 370/XP quad core ARMv7 processor
- Memory – 2 GB Memory
- Storage – 50 GB SSD Disk (extra space available for 1 Euro per 50GB)
- 1x Reserved public IPv4
- 200Mbit/s – Unmetered bandwith
You can deploy Ubuntu, openSUSE, Gentoo, Fedora, Debian, Arch Linux (ARM), or Alpine Linux to the server in less than one minute, as well as applications (InstantApps) such as Docker, Drupal, WordPress, ownCloud, Torrents, Gitlab, etc.. that can be installed through the server web interface. If an app is not listed, you could always connect via SSH, and install the required packages as needed. Scripts used to build the operating systems that run on C1 server can be found on Scaleway github account.
You can find more information and/or sign up for an account on Scaleway website.

What about their pBox board based on this module?
No news about that.
The databrief says up to 1.2GHz @ http://www.marvell.com/embedded-processors/armada-300/assets/Marvell_ARMADA_370_SoC.pdf
Shouldn’t be surprised. I would not pay 10 EUR for low-end SOC, you can get a lot better x86_64 VPS for that price.
i found this
it’s little cheaper but i don’t know the cpu performance between them
it’s a dedicate server based on the ODROID XU4 with different configuration sdcard, emmc or sdcard + usb3 ssd
