As far as I know, there are no plans for ARM support. However, I would recommend to send feedback to the Spectrum Scale team with the requirements so these can be evaluated.

The residency team is pleased to announce the release of the IBM Redbooks publication: IBM Spectrum Scale (formerly GPFS), SG24-8254. The topics described in this publication are as follows:
Note: This edition applies to IBM Spectrum Scale (formerly GPFS) v126.96.36.199 (TL1), SLES 11 SP2, SLES11 SP3, RHEL ppc64 6.5, AIX 7.1 TL3, Tivoli Storage Manager 7.1 Server, Client and Storage Agent (LAN-free), Tivoli Storage Manager for Space Management 7.1.1, and TSM for Space Management (HSM) 7.1.1.
This publication can be downloaded at the following website:
Note: This book has not been updated. This book has been placed online once again as it contains useful and still applicable concepts.
Although this publication is not at the latest Spectrum Scale releases, the book describes concepts which are still applicable to later releases of the solution. However, for the latest information about the the solution, including its latest releases, visit the IBM Knowledge Center for IBM Spectrum Scale at the following website:
Note: The initial version of this publication was released on February 23, 2015 to support the IBM re-branding announcement of the solution.
The residency team encourages the readers to send us feedback.
Keep tune to http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/ under the Residencies Tab for upcoming IBM Power Systems residency announcements.

This project will update the previous GPFS publication: Implementing the IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) in a Cross Platform Environment, SG24-7844. Additional areas to explore and document are:
• GPFS as a part of IBM’s broader software-defined storage environments
• Review use cases and expand the breadth of applicability of GPFS beyond traditional HPC use cases – SAP HANA, DB2 BLU Acceleration, Hadoop Analytics, Object store for OpenStack, and so on.
• Document GPFS FPO as a part of the GPFS capability for Big Data (not covered in prior IBM RedBooks)
• Position the IBM Platform Computing cloud service for clients needing high-performance software-defined storage in the cloud
• Explain the synergy between GPFS and storage intensive IBM products: Platform Symphony, Platform LSF, Algo, DataStage (where GPFS is part of the big data references architecture), Optim, BigInsights, Streams, SPSS, and so on.
In addition to updating the GPFS publication, the residency team will explore and document the following topics:
o An overview of the Platform Computing Cloud Services
o MultiCluster technology is central to the cloud service since this is how hybrid clusters are deployed
o GPFS as an option in the cloud service and why it is valuable
o Comparative economics of deploying on-premise vs. in the cloud
