AMD slashes datacentre costs

Written by Nick Farrell



Thanks to the cloud


AMD is slashing osts and reducing the number of its data centres worldwide with the help of the cloud and hardware upgrades.

Farid Dana, director of IT services at AMD said that the company will reduce the number of data centers it has to three by 2014, of which two will be in North America and one in Asia. Chatting to PC World Dana said that AMD has 12 data centers, down from 18 in mid-2009 when the consolidation effort began.

He said that AMD's cunning plan was to cut costs by shifting more tasks to the cloud, and by opening data centers in locations that have lower power costs and lower taxes. This means moving away from high-cost-per-watt places like Boston and California and establishing data centres in places like Suwanee, Georgia.
