exactly one use case for 32 bit in the cloud setting (IMO), which dgilmore
and I briefly spoke about after the meeting yesterday - extremely memory
constrained environments. The python memory consumption issues on 64 bit
fall into that category. Does anyone have other use cases that aren't
support for older hardware or memory usage with smaller amounts of mem?
I'm not too worried about an IaaS running 32-bit nodes, more a question
of whether folks are choosing 32-bit or 64-bit for their workload on AWS
or other providers.
Some very light research shows me that 32-bit is slightly less necessary
now that AWS supports 64-bit across all instance types:
