We also reached out to Gartner Research Director Sergis Mushell, who pointed out that microserver architecture has the potential to address up to 15 percent of current server workloads, or about 1.5 million servers. However, AMD’s announcement is less important for addressing today’s workloads, than it is for addressing the requirements of workloads five years down the line.

The introduction of ARM chips will allow the market for server chips, currently dominated by Intel with 95 percent market share, to diversify into one with three or four major players.

The development “creates an ecosystem of providers, not just Intel,” Mushell said. “No one player will have a majority of the market. The winner will be the one who has the solution for the dominant workload of the future.” That contest will be decided when ARM architecture begins to be adopted en masse in three to five years, he said.

“The journey toward a more efficient infrastructure for large-scale datacenters is taking a major step forward today with broader availability of our AMD Opteron A1100-Series development kit,” said Suresh Gopalakrishnan, general manager and vice president, Server business unit, AMD.

“After successfully sampling to major ecosystem partners such as firmware, OS, and tools providers, we are taking the next step in what will be a collaborative effort across the industry to reimagine the datacenter based on the open business model of ARM innovation," he added.
