This is one nice side effect from the changes in the PC and server landscape. I haven't seen this much innovation out of server, desktop, and laptop architectures in a long time. Not only is HP moving to ARM, but they are also talking about memory architecture changes and other changes that have been sitting on a shelf for a while now. I see it as being caused by a shakeup due to threats to longstanding business models, and I think that it is a good thing in the long run.

Hp it is not moving to ARM, Hp is doing only a full range strategy. It will be the customer that will decide what to buy. The cloud market is interesting, not the more lucrative around for a manufacturer but interesting. Obviously the main HP goal is to sell expensive and powerful Xeon based servers, all this effort on cloud and microservers is to stay in a game that will account 10/15% of the next years server market.

@Gondalf: Agreed. The only microservers HP is shipping now are x86 based (Avoton) and they remain a minoroity of the biz so far.

Enterprise server market is going through interesting phase. Servers market fragmentation is getting blurred. No more companies are looking for expensive and unflexible servers but cloud based services due to improved security and connectivity. If server farms are to be maintained by large companies then server chips need to be energy efficient.

Processors specialized...

"We will see processors specialized to the activities we want to do."

This seems, to me, going away from the general purposes processing unit. I wonder what kind of specialization Fink is talking about.

Not just the processors but also storage and interconnect architectures.

There's still a lot of working tuning all the elements, but Dell did show a running Applied system on Fedora with a 16G SAS storage subsystem--a real server demo.
