AMD Turns Server Maker
It has been recently revealed in a report that AMD, the chip designing firm, has recently struck a deal with SeaMicro. This is a deal that has been struck in order to save more space and electricity for the servers of the building and would replace the high electricity consuming monsters with low-power consuming processing systems.
With this new move, AMD, one of the largest rivals of Intel, shall become a server maker and one of those firms who have servers with the help of chips from Intel. It was further revealed that the servers from SeaMicro have Intel processors in them and also boast having Intel Xeon chips and Atom mobile processors by Intel.
The firm is of the view that it is going to continue the sale of the new combination servers. They are further of the hope that they want to get in business with the other big names such as HP and Dell in the time to come, and they are soon going to do that with the help of licensing the new `fabric' technology to the other companies that sell servers.
"We've been looking at the key technology innovations that are going to really disrupt the server market. We've been looking at fabric technologies - externally with a number of companies as well as internally, looking to develop ourselves", said Lisa Su, the company's senior Vice-President.
There is need for determining more about the process of building business ties with the various companies so that they can function smoothly in the time to come. This would only mean that the customers would now have a wider range of products and services to choose from.
