Other news
I bought three WD SN850 NVMe SSD's in the 1TB size. Two will go into the CPU only machines (replacing the Sabrent Rocket 4 SSD's) and one is for the Ampere Altra.

The Ampere Altra arrived. I have yet to unbox it. Its a 2U rack mount and weights around 20Kg so its not exactly small or light. I have yet to work out where to put it. I don't have a rack so it will probably end up on a shelving unit. As mentioned above I have an SSD to use as a boot drive and I have downloaded the ARM64 version of Debian and written that to a USB thumb drive, so hopefully it will be a simple process to install it even though there is no standard for booting ARM64 devices (unlike PC's).
