Scale-out computing has demands so different from conventional applications that it could reshape the way to design one class of multicore processors.
Intel has launched its first server SoC, based on a stripped-down Atom, in a bid to seal its place in microservers before ARM can ready its 64bit architecture for production. But the chip seems more a stake in the ground than the answer for low-power servers.
Open-source hardware is going to change the way people buy computing capacity for data centers, says LSI's Rob Ober
