It's nice to see this product/marketconvergence is happening that Intel moves down to small form factors with Atom and ARM moves to the space of Big guys recently. However, from teh biz prespective, I think many big companies would not be in the line for an ARM based server in their critical applications. Reliability, and scalability that Intel based servers have gained over years will take also some good years to be replaced by new entries like ARM. The big diference is that unlike the micro electronics and mobile market, in the Server market the CPU price is not the main factor for decision making.

Any decent RoboMaid is going to need multicores... even more so once voice recognition is required to figure out what the dog wants.

Boasting that they will have chips that cost less and yet are as powerful as Intel chips will either make or break them. If they manage to perform, I am pretty sure they will be launched into the top companies in the world. An ARM server start up like this would find it hard to dethrone Intel, but if it does, what a story it will be. Paul - http://www.connetu.com

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
