The Lollipop Cloud Project

The Lollipop Cloud project is a way to self-host internet services, such as a website, contact list, file storage, or a calendar, through open-source technology and ARM boards (link). It allows for anyone with an ARM computer to host their own services.

(The above blurb came from our website (link), in case you're just joining us.)
