AMD Hosts Discussion: Business Case for Cloud Computing
"As datacenter demands continue to evolve toward web-based application and data delivery, IT costs and energy consumption can sky rocket. We believe businesses can see both cost-savings and workload efficiencies with a cloud computing environment, particularly when utilizing scalable, high value, power-efficient AMD platforms," said Margaret Lewis, director, commercial software solutions and strategy, AMD. "Next quarter, AMD will take energy-efficient computing to the next level by introducing an even lower power processor specifically designed for the unique demands of cloud computing environments."
AMD virtualization technology innovation is also driving the evolution of cloud computing infrastructure with OEM, software and channel partners. Details of the leading SPECweb 2005 performance benchmark posted by VMware are included in the current AMD@work blog post, and insights on past and current trends influencing today's CCEs can be found at AMD@Virtualization.
