It is interesting that in the news today Facebook is planning to build a massive server farm near the arctic circle in Sweden. Low power=lower cooling costs and maybe less real estate?

HP had come up with the job done very fast, just before few months there were news of ARM Cortex usage for the servers, and HP has announced the products with it. If this gets well accepted then it will give tough time to Intel.

So ARM is now encroaching from the mobile computing space to the server space! Looks like a tough fight ahead for Intel. I think it is good for Calxeda Inc. and I happy for Calxeda. Only a question occur to my mind, what motivated (or compelled?) HP for taking the risk of using the chip designed by a start-up?

Who in God's name is going to start porting over all of their software to ARM so they can accommodate HP? You have to remember that HP still thinks that everybody is going to port over their software to the Itanium. Ain't gonna happen.

So HP is trying to piggy ride ARM in servers now. If ARM could break in server industry then Intel is in grave danger.

Cray instead of Cree, and turf instead of turn. Duh!

Anyone remember Trasmeta? Yeah, THAT Transmeta that was going to wipe the floor with Intel in the low-power space? I am not dismissing ARM long-term, 10-15 years from now their architecture may be a powerhouse assuming that a) they start providing legacy support b) the additions in power consumption imposed by the needs of enterprise-class hardware do not wipe out their power consumption advantage and c) Intel does not respond. 15 years ago Intel servers were also ridiculed, today they rule the roost. IBM, HP, Cree, and most other big iron makers chose to dismiss Intel servers as a joke. (a) and (b) will almost certainly occur to one extent or another. The question is WWID (What will Intel do)? In the past they have defended their turn from erosion from below ferociously. Anyone really expect things to be different this time?
