RESEARCH BRIEF: Building the Ecosystem for ARM Servers

By Gina Longoria - November 10, 2015
Enterprise IT and cloud service providers have shifted their focus away from server buying criteria that are based on performance-per-dollar and toward metrics that encompass total cost of ownership (TCO) for the lifecycle of a server. In addition, these organizations are moving away from a “one size fits all” approach to their server purchases and toward solutions that are optimized for each of their workloads.This shift in thinking opens the door for alternative architectures to emerge with solutions that are right-sized and optimized for specific workloads and applications.ARM Ecosystem Hyperscale Graphic
