Default AMD replaced 137 servers by 7 VMWare ESX

AMD ONCE HAD 135 servers crunching data for its Austin Texas HQ. Now, having virtualised the lot using VMware's virtualisation software it has cut that number to just seven. The move resulted in 79 per cent power savings, Margaret Lewis, AMD director of commercial solutions and software strategy told the INQ this week.

Isn't virtualisation bad news for a chip maker? we wondered. If seven servers can do the same job as 135 did before, doesn't that mean you'll sell fewer chips? Lewis claimed that the move means that firms that virtualise will be able to deploy the spare capacity to do other things. We were unable to pin down what these might be, however.
