At Intel Developer Forum I missed a session, but luckily one of my friends from ARM went to it and said it was quite good. Yes, there is a guy from ARM walking around an Intel conference.
The presentation is here.
For over three years I have been discussing the idea of little green servers, and now they are called micro servers.
Why did Intel give a speaking slot to micro servers? Because in 4-5 years they think it could be 10% of the current market dominated by Xeon.
The Micro Servers are composed of Supermicro, SeaMicro, Dell, Tyan, and Quanta
Why would you want a micro server? Dell’s Brandon Draegar presented.
It is interesting that Dell included SeaMicro in its portfolio slide.
Wonder how important micro servers are to Intel? Intel has launched a Micro Server lab.
