Kevin Clark, director of cloud platform engineering at Verizon, said his company still use a variety of computing architectures for its data centres. However the SeaMicro servers will be used on its new global cloud platform, Verizon Cloud, and cloud-based object storage service.
He claimed SeaMicro would solve many of the problems of cloud flexibility. SeaMicro used Intel Atom chips before AMD acquired it, and it still offers several models with Atom chips. But the new SeaMicro servers pack frugal AMD cores.
