Today in Cloud

There’s lots of talks about chip architecture today, with AMD talking about 20-core chips, as well as the definition of “core,” and ARM announcing its CoreLink 400 series to improve the performance of ARM-based systems. Of course, the big loser in all this server innovation could be Intel, if only because it has so much to lose. It’ll be interesting to watch how Intel counters, or if it even needs to. With its Cloud 2015 initiative, for example, Intel is already pushing Xeon as the foundation of next-generation data centers.
